Wobbel balance board: The wooden toy that moves young and old. A Waldorf classic redesigned!
The story of the Wobbel
The Wobbel finds its origin in the Waldorf schools. With the Wobbel we present this classic balance board in a modern design and contemporary editions.
The Wobbel stimulates balance and strength during play and use. In a playful way, but very efficiently, it supports physical awareness and balance. When using it as a training device, specific muscle groups can be isolated, while other exercises train big muscle groups. This goes for (young) children, adults and even the elderly.
Peace and Quiet
In our own experience the Wobbel works like a magnet on children and offers them many play possibilities beyond balancing fun. The Wobbel is meant not only for exuberant and playful games, but also for quiet moments and individual play. The board can be a bridge, a fort, a foundation for a rainbow tower, and countless other imaginative things!
The Wobbel is made with many layers of the best European beech wood (FSC), which are stacked and pressed under high pressure, and has a uniquely designed curve.
Because of its shape and looks, the Wobbel 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 be used outside with sufficient care.
Children are open minded and keep finding new uses for the Wobbel. It’s an ideal step in for example the kitchen, so children can wash their own hands without help and bake cookies of course.
