Our mini pikler triangle frame is foldable and is made to work with your baby, toddler, or even older children as it proves fun and instructive for early years development. The benefits are numerous, including enhanced gross motor development, increasing spatial awareness, vestibular stimulation (for learning about balance), strengthening limbs, proprioceptive learning (physical self-awareness), providing open-ended play and more!

Our Mini Climber is based on the theories of infant education that the renowned Hungarian Paediatrician Emma Pikler developed over the last century. 
The Pikler approach is based on a respectful relationship between an adult and infant, through choreographed tender care moments, a naturally paced motor development, free self-directed movement and uninterrupted play.

Manufactured from the highest quality birch faced plywood and FSC hardwood dowel, we finish the climber in a clear lacquer or paint making it hard wearing and wipeable so it can be used again and again. 

Also available in our eco range, this item can be supplied untreated as nature intended. The wood finish is beautifully warm for little hands and feet and offers a a natural surface reducing the carbon footprint of the product. This option also gives you the unique opportunity to treat the beautiful wood with any polish, oil or paint finish of your choice.
