WHAT IS A WOBBEL?
It is a sturdy, beautifully crafted beechwood rocking balance board, a seat, a safe haven, a bridge, a house, a step, a slide, a yoga aid, a fort, or a dinosaur!! It can be anything you want it to be! Children instinctively know what to do with them! Wobbel encourages active imaginative play. It builds strength and balance as well as creativity. And not just for kids- adults can have have fun too! Wobbel balance board: The wooden toy that moves young and old. A Waldorf classic redesigned! 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 felt layer offers a new twist on the standard design, increasing its possibilities.
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.
Cleaning and maintenance
It is advised to clean the Wobbel with a damp cloth, combined with a mild detergent if necessary. It’s important to wipe it with a dry cloth after cleaning. If your Wobbel has felt, the felt can be cleaned with a light application of natural soap. Don’t brush the felt too much, because that might damage it.
The Wobbel is made from sustainably harvested European beech wood (FSC) which is pressed and finished with water based lacquers and stains. The organic felt is a natural product as well and is dyed with non-toxic, natural dyes. The Wobbel is CE certified according DIRECTIVE 2009/48/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 18 June 2009 on the safety of toys and conforms to ASTM testing standards.
