We were inspired into imaginative play with wooden toys by the expertise and child care philosophy of Janet Lansbury who has authored two great books and has many thousands of followers on her RIE inspired blog. She states a Rocking Boat Step Climber as one of the top ‘7 Gifts That Encourage Child-Directed Play’. Check out the extract from her article on our blog HERE.
This product is:
• A boat that will row your youngster and their friends away to imaginary lands (don’t be surprised if you hear them singing row-row your boat)
• A motor skills play tool for balance, co-ordination, and climbing.
• A social skills play tool (rocking together, and perhaps clambering over each other …)
• A step climber / arch. Perfect for learning how to crawl, climb, and walk up and down stairs (including learning how to go backwards safely) under the supervision of adults. This can allow you to keep the stairs at home out of bounds if needed. Wonderful for use in apartments and one-story dwellings or childcare centres.
• A coffee / storage table when turned on its side? Well that’s how we’ve used ours sometimes in between play sessions!
• Designed and manufactured with love in NZ.
• Designed and made to Australian/New Zealand safety standards for children’s toys.
• Timeless and open-ended (and … no batteries!)
• Made from White Melamine Laminate for indoor use.
A gift and educational / play tool that will have a durable and treasured life with your child / family / play centre.
