Rockers are by far some of our most popular pieces.
The experience of rocking can be soothing and soft, or exciting and rapid, it depends on the rocking speed, but both ways are ideal for a child to play with and develop motor and spatial skills. Our rockers are designed to offer children both rocking options and furthermore, they can also use them as climbers when set upside down, or as storefronts when engaged in imaginative play by setting the rocker on its side.
Versatile, clean and open-ended, they are the perfect excuse to stay active, curious and engaged!
The rocker is designed to be a very resistant piece, we well know that children often get excited when using them and enjoy rocking quickly hard! This piece is made with top-quality national pine wood for the slats and certified European birch plywood for the sides.
As with all our toys, our rockers are intended to be a helpful and all-purpose tool for a child’s development. We designed them to be open-ended, this means that even though its main purpose is to be a rocker, it can also be used as a climber, as a small cave if you cover it with a blanket or a play silk, or as a storefront or a fort when the rocker is set on its side. The goal of an open-ended object is to invite a kid’s imagination to use it in many ways and that’s what our rockers do.
Our rockers are designed to be fully compatible with our reversible ramp and our rock-climbing board. We adapted the slats so that the space allows for the ramps to snap into place properly.

Rocking on this piece strengthens abdominal and core muscles, enhances limb-core coordination, helps develop a stronger sense of balance during motion, and helps the brain create sight-movement neural paths. A wooden rocker is a great option for sensory play, as rocking on them stimulates proprioception, the vestibular system, along with vision and touch.
All three sizes have a curvature designed to ease safe rocking, it will not flip over, nor hurt their fingers, as there is a generous space between the slats and the floor, creating this protection with the side slats.
Three sizes, so much fun!
While they’re all designed to be awesome, safe and fun, our three sizes have some design differences.
- An easy way to distinguish the XXL rocker from the double rocker is to check their handles at the middle: the double rocker’s handles protrude from the sideboards, while the ones in the XXL rocker are carved in.
- Another detail to note is that the small rocker doesn’t have handles in the middle.

Children go through many development stages in the space they can use a wooden rocker. As a child’s interests and developmental needs change while growing, so will the uses for the rocker change.

- A 4 year old kid with will be switching often from climbing to rocking probably all during imaginative play.
- A 5-year old will often use it to rock and burn those energy boosts that are so typical of that age, specially if friends come over to play.
