Some of the best moments in childhood are when kids are free to imagine with a prop – a cardboard box, dress up clothes, or Bunny Hopkins Wobble Boards. Purposefully minimal and inspired by the sheer joy of free open-ended play, Wobble Boards can be a fun balance board, teeter totter, pirate ship or a doll cradle (children can nestle on it as well). It’s an open-ended toy for kids that helps stimulate their creativity, promote physical play, and helps develop gross motor skills while they have fun. Flip it over to make it a slide, an obstacle course or magical rainbow fairy castle and spark creativity with so many more imaginative play scenarios! This activity toy with a simple curved design invites kids to balance and wobble which strengthens the core and muscles, improves reflexes and hones balancing skills which are critical for child development. Adults can get a peek into their child’s thinking and happily skip the cords, gadgets, and batteries.
Handmade by local craftsmen in Bunny Hopkins’s Atlanta, Georgia workshop, consumers needn’t worry about supply chain delays. In fact, Reviewed.com highlighted Bunny Hopkins in its 22 Awesome American-Made Toys And Gifts For Kids article. “These award-winning toys are all made from sustainable wood sourced from U.S. forests and are responsibly—and lovingly—made by local artists,” wrote Reviewed.com’s Janelle Randazza. Discover these Made-in-America Wobble Boards at https://bunnyhopkinstoys.com/ Not only media, but also retailers have been impressed. The American Specialty Toy Retailers Association (ASTRA) voted the Rainbow Wobble Board its 2021 Winner of Best Toys for Kids in Active & Outdoor Category.
Besides its natural American Maple wood beauty, what makes this toy so special? “In today’s increasingly complex world, open-ended play is essential for children’s well-rounded development,” explains Shamik Dasgupta, Founder of Bunny Hopkins. “This type of play allows kids to be agile and have no fear of wrongly interacting with the Wobble Board since there is no correct method or outcome and allowing for future adaptations – the freedom to invent and discover, fostering talent in a relaxed way. The minimalist designs stimulate their curiosity and allows them to become engrossed in their own imagination and creativity with hours of active & agile play. Kids just know it’s pure fun.”
Toy industry experts agree, showering the American Toymaker with multiple awards in the past few months in addition to the ASTRA honors. Wobble Board was named Toy Insider Best Holiday Toy for both its Toddler Holiday Gift Guide and its Top Toys for 2-Year-Olds. Creative Child named it a 2021 Kids Product Of The Year Award in its Kid’s Active Play Products Category plus a 2021 Creative Play Of The Year Award in the Motor Skills Creative Play Category. Mom’s Choice Awards gave it a Gold seal.
“Parents made a point of telling us and other parents that this is so much more than just a wobble board,” boasted The National Parenting Center in its glowing review as a Fall 2021 Seal of Approval Winner. “It offers many different playtime benefits and can be used in the “u” shape or upside-down “u” shape for endless play options. It can be a ramp, a rocking chair, a surfboard, a slide, a bridge, a tunnel, etc. Whatever your child does while playing with it will come intuitively because there are no instructions, and that is one of the great things about the Wobble Board. This is definitely not one of those toys that a kid will get bored (pun apologies) of quickly.”
Grandparents, parents and gift givers can choose from six variations and two popular sizes: Regular and Starter, which are perfect for ages 18 months+.
Regular sized Wobble Board measures 32 inches long, 12 inches wide, 7 inches tall and ¾ inches thick and is durably made to last many years so that children can grow with it. Amazingly, it can support up to 450 lbs., so older kids, the babysitter, and grandparents can join in on the fun and games. Choose from several crafty variations: Rainbow ($159); Diversity ($159); Honey Maple ($129); Red Oak ($129); NEW! White Linen ($129); and Unfinished ($89).
Starter-sized Wobble Board is ideal for toddlers and measures 23 inches long, 12 inches wide and 3 inches tall and ¾ inches thick. Tots’ gross motor skills get a nice workout with the specially designed arch/curve height designed for toddler safety. At just 3 inches tall, this board is the perfect height to introduce open-ended play and learning to balance. Like the Regular sized Wobble Board, choose from six crafty variations – Rainbow ($129), Diversity ($129), Honey Maple ($99), Red Oak ($99), NEW! White Linen ($99) and Unfinished ($59).
To date, the best sellers are the Rainbow and Diversity variations. Vibrant like a rainbow in the sky, the Rainbow Wobble Board nurtures a child’s innovative spirit with hours of active play. The Diversity-themed Wobble Board elevates emotional intelligence and cultural awareness which is critical for today’s well-rounded child development. The Honey Maple variation is most favorite among “just natural shade” enthusiasts and Montessori moms, and its close compatriot, the new White Linen variation is chic and stylish, lighting up any children’s playroom. The Red Oak variation is the darkest shade and beautifully makes the underlying wood grain vividly prominent. And lastly, the Unfinished variation is for the creative DIYers, with just the bare wood and no finishing so that anyone can get creative and finish the Wobble Board in the way they like.
