£128.00

What can you do with it? Funny enough only adults ask this question! For children it’s the balance board that instinctively becomes a bridge, a slide, a cave, a chair, the possibilities are endless.

Out of stock

The ultimate balance board, the Wobbel Pro is the twin sister of the Wobbel Original. With a big difference: this Wobbel has no wool felt but recycled pressed felt on the bottom. That makes this Pro suitable for intensive use. The pressed felt mainly consists of recycled PET bottles. Just like the wool felt, it reduces noise, prevents scratches on the floor and on the Wobbel. The soft, felt look means an extra invitation to the users. This felt is easier to clean. It’s super hard wearing making it the perfect Wobbel for tough environments such as nurseries and play groups.

What is the Wobbel Board?

The Wobbel board originates in Waldorf classrooms, the first thing children will want to do on the curved balance board is rock! Standing up, sitting down, lying, back and forth over and over they just love rocking about. All this rocking builds strength, balancing skills and confidence.

A Wobbel is more than just a rocker board though, children use them for all sorts of play, it can be a bridge, a boat, a chair or even a step. Wondering how your child will use the Wobbel board? Funnily enough, only adults ask this question! For children it’s instinctive, the possibilities are endless. Wobbel also 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.

  • Minimum age recommendation is 0+ months and it is suitable for all ages above.
  • Wobbel is CE certified to a weight limit of 200Kg. It is designed for 1 child at a time to play with when rocking.
  • The Wobbel Pro also contains no wool or other animal based products, making it suitable for a Vegan lifestyle.

Larry's Learning Outcomes

Open ended play means children engaging in toys or objects with no instruction or direction. So, blocks that may become a castle or material that becomes a den. The point is they decide. It utilises all their creativity and allows them to really expand their imaginative skills. They have to problems solve and to communicate. It encourages social development and social interaction. Fear of making mistakes is still one of the biggest barriers to learning, engaging in open ended play provides a low stress environment. There’s no expected outcome. So, children are more likely to take risks, to feel safe making mistakes and to realise this is one of the most important ways to learn.

Mr Mole's Marvellous Ideas

When choosing toys for you child, ask yourself, does it allow children to make choices about their play or tell them how to play? Being more aware of the toys your children play with will help to develop a more creative and open ended environment.
