The Foldable Climbing Triangle.

Enter one of our most versatile and practical pieces, the climbing triangle, designed to promote your child’s gross motor development from the very beginning.

The rope-ladder triangle is a must. Children naturally want to pull themselves up, climb and explore their surroundings. This impulse begins around their 8th month and continues throughout all childhood; climbing is a fundamental activity for children to develop their brain connections to their muscles and joints and, to strengthen them as they grow; it is also key for tuning and processing of sensory information.
