wobbel board - lacquer without felt
The concept behind Wobbel balance boards was originally born in the Waldorf classroom. Perfected and updated for the 21st century by a design duo in the Netherlands, the Wobbel board was born. Made from layers of pressed FSC-certified European beech wood, the Wobbel board has a unique curve design that can hold up to 200kg. With its smooth curve, natural finish, and minimalist, European design, the Wobbel board is one toy that doesn't need to be tidied away when not in use. Water-based lacquers allow the wood grain to show through and the EKO felt and cork backings are wonderful natural materials that suit any decor.
What to do with a Wobbel board? The best way to find out what to do with a Wobbel board is to put it in front of your kids. From our experience they will come up with dozens of new uses in no time. Some of our favourites are: a standing rocker/balance board, a lounger seat with a cozy blanket, a slide for stuffed animals, a ramp for vehicles, a step for reaching the kitchen sink, and the list goes on. The Wobbel stimulates strength and balance during play and supports physical awareness and development for young ones. Older kids, adults, and even the elderly can benefit from targeting specific muscle groups with the Wobbel board too! From early years into adolescence and even teenage years, the Wobbel board continues to find use and provide play in most homes.
All of our Wobbel boards come with either cork or EKO felt backings. This soft backing is beneficial for protecting both the board and your floors as well as for muffling sound. All felt boards are safe for 0 months and up and the cork boards are rated for ages 3 years and up. If the cork is pulled away by little fingers, it can then present a choking hazard. If this is a concern for you, we recommend choosing a Wobbel board with felt backing.
The Wobbel board should only be used with bare feet or non-slip shoes. Wobbel boards are primarily designed for indoor play. Wobbel boards can be used outside, but will show wear and usage more quickly and may break down if left in wet or humid areas for prolonged periods.
