Once you have a Wiwiurka piece and your child plays everyday on it, the piece becomes part of your home, but what happens if your child is also getting a sibling soon, or two? What about when your child is ready for greater developmental challenges? Well, today we are going to address these questions by talking about how to create a play set for your little ones, actually, we’re going further, we’ll talk about 5 different settings for Wiwiurka pieces; this can serve also as a way to make a plan for your kids’ playroom as they grow.
This post will have lots of photographs, sometimes an image is worth a thousand words!
First things first: lets talk about the ramps.
All our indoor climbers and rockers are completely compatible with our two types of ramps and these are what we call add-ons because you can purchase our pieces without a ramp and later on order one, they will fit in right into our climbers and rocker. If you’d like to read more about our rock-climbing ramp and our reversible ramp, including how they fasten into our pieces, you’ll find the post by clicking right here.
So, in order to connect a Single rocker with a Climbing Pikler Triangle, you use a ramp to create a play set. You can do the same with a Pikler Climbing Arch and XXL rocker, or connect two triangles, or two rockers, or a Little Bean rocker with a Double rocker, etc. As said before, the ramp can fit into any of our indoor pieces and connect them.
1. An XXL rocker with a Climbing Pikler Triangle.
This is a classic and a full-fun play set! It’s perfect for children from 2 years old up to 7 or 8 years old, it offers climbing, sliding and rocking. Furthermore, if you connect the pieces you have a great obstacle course if you add some props.
Another awesome option is to create a fort with the XXL rocker and the Triangle by covering the pieces with a play-silk, a sheet or a blanket. Lots of space to have some long sessions of imaginative play and some inside-outside sensory play too for young toddlers.
2. Pikler Climbing Arch with a Pikler Climbing Triangle.
This set is a great option for young siblings learning how far their climbing skills can take them, I’m thinking of a 10 month old with a 3 year old for example, put it can work great also for more kids, just make sure you get a large Triangle. Connect these pieces with a ramp or two, and you’ll get many hours of happy play and a great energy-burning workout for the little ones!
3. Two Pikler Climbing Triangles.
Yes, that’s a fun option and it works great for families with several children. You can use one ramp as a bridge and another as a slide. Lots of climbing up and down and enough space for everyone to participate! A great option for families with twins and older or younger children too.
A plus about this set is that because our Climbing Piker Triangles fold flat, you can easily make space when you need it and the whole things can be stored under a bed or just reclining it on the wall. Let’s take a look.
4. A single rocker and an XXL rocker.
This option is great if you have two children and the small one gets into the mode of wanting to do whatever the older sibling does, yes, many of you know what I am talking about. You have a single rocker for the younger one to rock on her own and an XXL rocker for the eldest to rock away happily as well. However, as with our other options, once you bring a ramp into the scene and connect the two, you have a large and fun climbing set going on for them to play together.
A very practical feature about the two-rocker play set is that the single rocker fits perfectly under the XXL rocker.
5. A Little Bean Rocker with a Pikler Climbing Triangle.
The Little Bean rocker was designed mainly with daycare services and indoor play groups in mind for toddlers, therefore for it’s very beginning, this piece was thought out to be part of a play set. It works great connected to the Pikler Climbing Triangle.
