Age: we’re not assigning an age. We’re inviting. And seeing advantages for very young children, and children with ‘young’ motor skills. This Wobbel®️ has been extensively tested like all the others, and is safe from 0 to 100 years.
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.
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.
