10 best uses for a Pikler triangle
“What on earth is that?” we hear you shout. Great looking, get us one, but what is it?!
Nearly 100 years ago, a Hungarian Pediatrician, Dr. Emmi Pikler, developed a new theory on child development, based on allowing the child to move freely and develop at his or her own pace.
It gives boys and girls the opportunity to learn how their bodies can move (and climb) and so the Pikler Triangle was created. It can be used from birth and enjoyed until children are 4 or 5.
A climbing triangle looks lovely indoors or out, is a beacon of sustainable craftsmanship and is so much more than just a wooden climbing frame. It’s a great present for boys and girls, it folds up behind the sofa, so can transform a sitting room into a playroom by day!
The most wonderful thing about kids is their imagination and the climbing triangle sparks just that! As children develop, they will interpret the triangle in many different ways and not just to climb, jump and slide!
Our 10 best ways to use the climbing triangle and slide!
