I am one to read all the reviews before I buy something, especially when I am spending alot of money. I bought the wobbel board with felt for my 18 month old for Christmas this year. He is a very active little boy and loves climbing and any kind of obstacle course type of activity (crawling through small spaces, standing precariously on top of things, etc.) I want to encourage this kind of risky play while also setting boundaries, but also give him opportunities to do some gross motor play safely and supervised. A few weeks before Christmas, I started to wonder if the wobbel board was going to be worth it, given the price, and even considered returning it before gifting it to him. I didn't, and even though it has only been a few days, he has LOVED this thing! He is still pretty young for it, but it has been played with more than anything else he received for Christmas. He has wobbeled on it (while saying "woah"), stood on top of it, sat on it and slid down, and used it for his cars and animals. He is only 18 months old, so I know it will get many more years of play! I love that this thing is made of solid wood and can hold a lot of weight. I almost went for a cheaper brand on Amazon, but I am glad I didn't because this feels so much more sturdy (I am a carpenter's daughter and have a strong dislike for particle board). I also love having the felt since we have hard flooring. The felt doesn't prohibit him from enjoying it as a slide, either. Overall, I really recommend it! Especially if you have a little one who loves gross motor play!
We bought this for our daughter’s birthday (3) and she is totally in love with all the things she can do with the board!
Very sturdy and well made! Endless ways to be played with! Allows toddlers to release their energies while stimulating their imagination! Highly recommended!
