Wobbel Board Felt, WOBBEL
Wobbel Board Felt, by WOBBEL is a wondrous open ended toy created from sustainable natural materials. It encourages children and adults alike to go beyond the normal rules of play by finding their inner creativity to unleash an unlimited range of exciting play based experiences and activities with their Wobbel Board Felt. In our own experience the Wobbel works like a magnet on children. Not only for exuberant and playfull games (together as well), but also for quiet moments and individual play.
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.
The Wobbel is because of its shape and looks the only 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.
Wobbel Board a balance board, a swing, a bridge, a shop, a hut, a step, a racetrack, a lounge seat, or an elephants back? It’s all of that and more! Wobbel boards invite movement and play indoors; stimulate creativity and imagination; encourage strength, balance and poise; and have practical uses too. Children instinctively know what the possibilities are and keep discovering new ways to play with the Wobbel.
The story of the Wobbel
The Wobbel finds it’s origin in the Waldorf schools. With the Wobbel we present this classic balance board in a modern design and contemporary editions. Wobbel: The wooden toy that moves young and old.
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. The Wobbel is because of its shape and looks the only 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.
Wobbel is beautiful and robust redesign of a traditional Steiner (Waldorf) balance board. Children of all ages love to rock, whether it be standing up, sitting or lying down. Rocking builds strength and a sense of balance and confidence; it engages both hemispheres of the brain, and it can also be calming and therapeutic. Wobbel is for all ages and grows with our child – a young child can crawl into it and gently rock back and forth, while older children will build their gross motor skills. Wobbel is great for playing, interacting and getting fit together! A Wobbel is more than that though! Children will use the Wobbel in all sorts of ways in imaginary play, as a bridge for animals and vehicles, a base for building, or even a roof or home for toys. In practical ways around the home, the Wobbel will become a seat or a step.
The felted base is recommended if you intend to use your Wobbel on any surface other than carpet or a rug. The felt base will protect your floors and dampen the sound. It also adds a non-slippery and softer surface when the Wobbel is being used as a seat or step.

Always let children play under adult supervison. Help children to get used to the Wobbel and assist them as needed. Teach your child to never hold the edges, and to be aware of fingers and toes getting caught under the board. Provide at least 2 meters of free space (also to other children) around the Wobbel and place on a flat, horizontal surface. Barefoot and non-slip shoes prevent slipping. Wobbel is designed for indoor play; it may be used outdoors but this will increase wear and tear to the board and the felt base.
