It is our smallest product, but it has great possibilities. On the one hand, it is a toy, and on the other, a gymnastic device – it develops the sense of balance, shapes the muscles, and is responsible for the correct posture of the child. GOOD WOOD would not be GOOD WOOD if, with many very practical advantages, it also did not give a lot of fun and joy – at home or outdoors.
Stimulation of the sense of balance – Good Wood Balance Board
Proper functioning of the sense of balance is necessary for controlling body posture and effective motor planning. Disturbances in the sense of balance may result in the child being apathetic, bored, and reluctant to play with other children. Children with a deficiency in equivalent skills appear clumsy, tend to isolate themselves from their peer group, and often experience problems with self-esteem. Therefore, as parents, we should support the development of the child’s sense of balance through appropriate play.
The balance beam for children is a gymnastic device, which at first glance does not evoke any associations with corrective gymnastics. On the contrary, it is a toy that will provide hours of great fun, while stimulating the proper functioning of the sense of balance. Our balance is characterized by a simple structure and compact size, thanks to which we can use the device even in conditions of limited space.
The weight of this inconspicuous toy is 1.2 kg.
The dimensions of the balance board are 49 x 20 cm. We made it of 18 mm plywood, which makes it withstand a lot.
We do not specify the minimum height of a child, but it is definitely equipment for older children who already know their abilities. Our twins became interested in balance board at the age of approx. 3 years.
The balance board is perfect for a small area - just 1 square meter is enough for great fun.
