Dutch children have grown up with these fascinating boards for generations. More recently this multi-use toy was revived for use in Waldorf (Steiner) early childhood classrooms. A kinderboard helps children develop a sense of balance, stimulate their vestibular system, and gain a deeper awareness of their body and body parts. You can rock it. Balance on it. Push it. Spin it. Flip it and slide. Sit on it or use it like a foot stool. These sturdy beech plywood boards keep energetic children engaged in creative play for hours.
Kinderboards are Dutch designed and recreate the same experience as the original concept. They're excellent for stimulating child development + both physical and mental - and offers open-ended play opportunities for toddlers, children, teens, and even adults. You can use a Kinderboard both indoors and out, perfect for rainy and sunny days at home or in a school environment.
Watch a child's imagination take over when their Kinderboard arrives. It becomes a seesaw, a balance board, a slide, a step stool, a boat, a resting place, a doll bed, a puppet stage, a tunnel and many more opportunities for them to explore. The possibilities are endless - and truly up to them!
Kinderboards are skilfully crafted from European beech wood (not Birch wood). The timber is sustainably sourced from an FSC certified supplier. Made in an ethically run factory that Kinderfeets (and Artiwood) inspects and evaluates regularly. Tested and certified to European and Australian standards. Supports up to 220 kgs. Finished with a translucent water-based lacquer.
Kinderboards are made in accordance with established Steiner principles to maximum their sensory and exploratory potential. This includes a slightly textured surface rather than a slippy gloss finish, plus a felt-free base that allows it to be used hygienically outside the home or as a low-friction sliding ramp.
