2. Wobbel Board
The Wobbel Board 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 play house tent is made for playing and hanging out. Take down all the sides for a complete house to play in or roll up the sides and invite all your friends to join you. Easy to assemble and to take apart again. Children love building cabins and creating their own little cosy den. They can amuse themselves for hours in there, with various role-plays involving cabin building and “nesting”. The more pillows, blankets, and cuddly toys they can cram in there, the cosier it becomes. In their imagination, their den can become anything - a playhouse, a shop, a library, or simply a cosy cabin. If it’s a rainy day, move the tent indoors to create a cosy outdoor feeling indoors.
