If you had to choose ONE and only one toy for your toddler what would it be? It should be open-ended, so that your child can play with it for hours without ever being bored.
It should be safe and solid, so that you never worry about them hurting themselves. And it should be beautiful and physically inviting, so that your kids are always attracted and engaged to play with it.
To me, the best decision you can make is to offer them a Montessori Room Balance Board.
The Montessori Room’s Balance Board not only is a rocker board, but can be used as a see-saw or teeter-totter, a balance beam, a bridge, a tunnel, a slide, a rocking cradle, a puppet stage, a boat, a seat, a step stool, a catapult, a magic carpet, and so on, and so forth…
With this Waldorf opened-ended toy, your child can stay engaged and have fun for much longer. This toy can be used for more active play or for calmer moments. In addition, it can be used both inside and outside. This toy was designed for beginner motor skills development to help improve both physical as well as cognitive growth.
The board is incredibly light but very sturdy. An adult can play with it and a 2-year-old can easily operate it.
Lastly, the simplicity of this piece is beautiful and attractive. Placed in a playroom or a bedroom it is an intriguing architectural statement that can be fully part of your home decoration.
