WHAT is WOBBEL?
Is it a balance board, a swing, a bridge, a shop, a hut, a step, a racetrack, a lounge seat, or an elephants back? It’s all of that and more! Wobbel boards invite movement and play indoors; stimulate creativity and imagination; encourage strength, balance and poise; and have practical uses too. Children instinctively know what the possibilities are and keep discovering new ways to play with the Wobbel.
Wobbel is a beautiful and robust redesign of a traditional Steiner (Waldorf) balance board (the vision of two Waldorf families in The Netherlands). Wobbel is for all ages and due to its length (90cm) grows with your child – a young child can crawl into it and gently rock back and forth, while older children will build their gross motor skills. Wobbel is great for playing, interacting and getting fit together! A Wobbel is more than that though! Children will use the Wobbel in all sorts of ways in imaginary play, as a bridge for animals and vehicles, a base for building, or even a roof or home for toys.

HOW IS WOBBEL MADE?
Wobbel have not compromised on quality and only use the best materials. Producing a Wobbel is a complex process that we sourced from the best wood bending factory in Europe. The Wobbel is made of pressed sustainable European beech wood, treated with waterbased paints and varnishes. Wobbel choose beechwood as it is a European timber that has the same incredible strength as oak as opposed to birchwood which is about 25% softer. As Wobbel are made in Europe, the eco footprint is also smaller compared to products where European timbers are shipped off to Asian factories.
Always let children play under adult supervison. Help children to get used to the Wobbel and assist them as needed. Teach your child to never hold the edges, and to be aware of fingers and toes getting caught under the board. Provide at least 2 meters of free space (also to other children) around the Wobbel and place on a flat, horizontal surface. Barefoot and 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.
