Wobbel what? What is it for and what can you do with it?
Is it a balance board, a swing, a bridge, a shop, a hut, a step, a racetrack, a lounge seat, or an elephants back?
Grown ups will try to define it, but children instinctively know what the possibilities are.
They keep discovering and learning new ways to play with the Wobbel.
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
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 not only protect your Wobbel Board it will also 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.
