Wobbel what? What is it for and what can you do with it? 
It is the question we get asked the most and it is the question you probably want an answer too before getting your own one:

The Wobbel is a beautiful and robust redesign of a traditional Steiner (Waldorf) balance board. The simple design inspires creative play in children while helping them reach key developmental milestones. You can rock it, balance on it, push it, spin it, flip it and slide down it, sit on it or use it as a footstool, make it into a see-saw, a boat or a resting place or a doll's house – the play opportunities are endless! It is the wooden toy that moves young and old. It grows with your child, younger children can crawl onto it and rock gently, they can use it as a bridge for their toys, while older children will stand and rock and incorporate building blocks or marble runs with the Wobbel as a base.

The Wobbel stimulates balance and strength during play and use. In a playful way, but very efficiently, it supports physical awareness and balance. In our own experience the Wobbel works like a magnet on children. It is a toy that doesn’t need to be put away after playing with it. It looks great in every living room. It is designed for indoor use, but can also be used outside with sufficient care.

Felted base options at Oskar's Wooden Ark
The felted base is recommended if you intend to use your Wobbel on any surface other than carpet or a rug. The felt base will protect your floors and dampen the sound. It also adds a non-slippery and softer surface when the Wobbel is being used as a seat or step. Last but not least the felt adds a special look and design to it. We decided to stock our six all time favorite felt options: Sky Blue, Mouse Grey, Forest Green, Powder Pink Wallaby Brown The Wobbel XL comes in a Limited Edition we recently added the new Black Wobbel XL with Black Felt to our collection.

Wobbel Safety
Always let children play under adult supervision and let them get used to the Wobbel. Help them when needed and make clear what can and can't be done with it. Beware of fingers and toes at the edges. Teach your child from the first time to never hold the edges. Provide at least two meters of free space (also to other children) around the Wobbel and place it on a flat, horizontal surface. Make sure they don't wear socks or smooth shoes, otherwise they might slip and they could fall. Barefoot or non-slip shoes prevent slipping. Wobbel is designed for indoor play. It may be used outdoors but this will increase wear and tear to the board and the felt base.

Awesome! for all ages

We purchased this to support our 7 year olds motor development. She loves it and truly is learning through play. The older children (10 and 13) also love having a wobble. Also want to mention that on the Wobbel web site there are free activity cards that can be printed out. Miss 7 year old loves trying out the poses on the cards as well as inventing her own.

Love love love!

Thought I’d pop in and leave a review because I know how much people struggle with the “felt or no felt” option! I had no idea what to do, but knowing the wobbel in our household would be predominantly used in areas with carpet we chose no felt. This “toy” is absolutely adored by everyone in the house, the adults, the 5 year old and the 9 month old! There’s not a single day that goes by where the wobbel isn’t played with, it’s used as a slide, a pull up device, a ramp for cars.. everything! It’s been used on the floorboards before and no damage has been done, but on a whole we keep it in the carpeted rooms. If you’re on the fence about buying one just go for it. You will not regret this purchase!

Amazing! Worth the expense

The wobbel was initially purchased as a sensory therapy item for my eldest child. In a few short days my delayed youngest child is using it to climb, the eldest child is using it and it’s helping with sensory regulation, the middle child thinks it’s a troll bridge, I use it as a chair when reading. My husband has used it as a catapult in an elaborate game. Amazing 10/10!

The kids haven’t been off it since it arrived. It was so sweet to watch them try different things with it. The baby sitter raves about it and I found myself rocking on it today whilst on a work call.

Exceptional quality, don't hesitate

I have been riding high end skateboards for 30+ years and recognise great wood work and craftsmanship on the Wobbel Original. The laquered underside can be slid on carpet for an additional sensory and balance challenge; try modifying your feet width from centre in even and uneven stances; try the same but facing your feet perpendicular like the kick push skateboard position; try bending your knees extra low. Feel your core working!
Warning: you'll need to teach your kids to keep their hands away from underneath the board, either gripping the curved edge of the board or planting hands on the ground but under the boards rocking zone. Holding the outer top flat edges is fine as those rarely reach the ground, it's the side edges close to the ground that are a finger crunch risk. My kids ran over their fingers once on carpet and learned not to do that again. Don't let this deter purchase, it's totally worth it and will last 2x lifetimes. Plus the sense of balance that it trains is transferable to so many other physical activities. We are all very happy with this Buy Well Buy Once purchase.

Wonderful workmanship, a thing of simplicity and beauty. My 3 year old loves it. (We all love it and it is THE FIRST thing kids go to when they come for playdates. I was unsure because of the price, but it is a really nice investment.

Wobbel Board made by superior quality wood!

I bought my 13 year old autistic son a Wobbel Board for Christmas, 2020, and He instantly started doing skateboarding tricks and spins on it. He found it so much fun that he was laughing hysterically for a good 10 minutes. I even had a try and enjoyed it so much I decided to buy a cheap copy from Kmart (Australia). The Wobbel Board quality European beech wood, workmanship, strength, and smoothness of the wood far exceeds the quality of the cheap imitation and it can also handle double the weight! My son now wants the Wobbel Deck (mini mattress) and pillow so he can spend quiet time rocking himself on the board while playing on his devices or reading. It's not just a toy but a great exercise tool to strengthen and tone muscles and develop balance for children and adults of all ages. Best purchase ever!
