PLANTOYS | 3 years & up
A Waldorf classic redesigned!
PlanToys' balance boards are terrific conditioning tools to help children (and even adults!) develop balance, and are also excellent for stimulating the vestibular system and proprioception in kids (awareness of one's physical body and its parts).
Originally used by teachers in Waldorf early childhood classrooms, this boards are lauded not only for their developmental benefits, but also for their great open-ended play value: Younger kids can sit and rock on it; and as they get braver they can stand and wobble as if balancing on a see-saw - fantastic for developing core strength! But don't just stop there: try this out as a balance beam, bridge, slide, or even a rocking cradle! What other playful ways can you think of to utilise these unique curved boards?
PlanToys' Balance Board comes with a detachable rope piece that kids can use to hold on for support, but can also be removed once your teetering tot becomes more confident through play.
Holds up to 200kg, and can be used both indoors and out. Crafted from quality rubber plywood that is heavier, denser, and more durable than light-density wood. Perfect for rainy or sunny days, at home, in playgroups - or even in schools.
