A Wobbel is a balance board, a step, a seat, a swing, a bridge, a race track, a cave and any other wild and wonderful structure imaginable.
Children are born with an innate desire to create and explore. They take one look at a Wobbel and they are intrigued by all the possibilities they can discover while incorporating it into their play time.
The Wobbel board is a redesign of a traditional Waldorf balance board. These boards encourage indoor movement and play, stimulate imaginations, develop strength and can be used to work specific muscle groups and improve balance.
Wobbel boards are suitable for all ages and they will provide different play opportunities as children grow. A young child can crawl around the board or gently rock back and forth on it, while older children can incorporate it into their imaginative play and also use it to develop their gross motor skills.
This particular Wobbel board has a felt base which is ideal when using the board on any surface other than carpet or a rug. The felt also assists with minimising the sound caused by use of the board on hard flooring surfaces.
Sustainably harvested FSC certified European beech wood is used to manufacture the Wobbel boards. They are finished with water-based translucent lacquer and are chemical-free. The felt layer is made from natural wool and water-based paints.
These balance boards are tested to take weight up to 200kg.
When stationary, the sides of the Wobbel sit approximately 21cm off the ground.
Please note that adult supervision is required when playing with these boards. Children should be taught to never hold the edges and be aware of fingers and toes being caught under the board. Provide at least 2 metres of clear space around the Wobbel when it is being used that is free from any other children or objects. The Wobbel should only be used on a flat, level surface. Barefoot or non-slip shoes should prevent slipping when using the board. Recommended for indoor use only.
