Underneath there is a strong layer felt that brings a glint of colour when your child is rocking or totally transforms the play space when the Wobbel Board is turned upside down!

Wobbel boards have joined the family at Baba Me! These Waldorf style Balance Boards are the perfect open ended toy. A lot of people look at them and ask what exactly they should do with them, but your kids will never ask you that question, they will naturally know what to do, no instructions needed!
What can you do with a Balance Board? Rock gently, sit on it, stand up on it, lie down on it or cuddle up and read on it. Your children will use the board for all their play, finding ways to bring it into whatever they are doing. It is perfect to use as a bridge or road for Wooden Animals like Holztiger or Ostheimer to march over. Kids love to lie on them and read stories, draw pictures lying over it, and make beds for teddies. Rock on with their favourite teddy. Older kids can race Lego creations up and down it like a skateboard ramp!
They are great for developing core strength, encouraging balance, flexibility and building strength in little people. (Did you know that kids have to first learn to balance before they can move on to more complicated motor skills such as hopping and climbing stairs?) Everything starts by balancing on them. Perfect for kids who are always on the move, they allows children to rest while still being able to rock gently and relax. These boards are great for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and similar as they can encourage calm.
If you are looking for some ideas on what to do with one please have a read of our popular blog called 5 Ways to Wobbel Balance Boards at Baba Me. Your kids will fall in love instantly with these awesome Wooden Curves, although you will have to get creative if you are wrapping it as the shape gives it away!
Made From: Made from Beech Wood that is sourced in Europe, the wood is transformed into Wobbel boards in Belgium by pressing layers of the wood together under high pressure to form the lovely curve that makes these toys so wonderful. These boards are an ethical and sustainable toy that will last even past your grandchildren!
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Beech Wood is sustainably harvested from within 300km around the Factory. The factory itself is incredibly efficient, with as little waste and raw materials used as possible. They use no gas used and all residue timber from the boards goes into heating the factory - amazing! All paints used to finish the boards are water based and sourced from Italy. They can be wiped clean and left to air dry.
No nasty chemicals are used to colour the natural Wool Felt. The felt is dyed using natural colourings. Wool feels warm and cosy to touch and is really resistant to abrasion. It will protect your floors and also help keep the noise down as your little girl or boy plays.
They should be used with adult supervision. Children should only play on the them with bare feet or shoes on, socks can cause them to slip. Always keep little fingers and toes away from underneath the Board and 2 metres of free space around when your child is playing. Use it on a flat surface! They can be used outside but Wool & Felt won't like it if it gets wet or dirty so bear this in mind!
