The Tumbling Animals are based on simple geometric forms - cut in the shape of animals.. The Tumbling Animals are great as children´s furniture, but are designed for creative play.
Children are able to tumble, climb, seesaw, balance, jump and gain coordination skills, which can serve as the foundation for further development. The possibilities are endless with these fun animals. When used as a stepping stool, they don't move when they get wet which is a nice feature.
The Tumbling Animals Crocodile has 6 layers of firm foam. It has a soft surface, very easy to clean under the shower. The Tumbling Animals are tested especially for children and is free of any toxin or phthalates.
The most obvious use of the Crocodile is as a staircase – the desire to walk up and down the stairs is obvious, which enhances the strength and balance of the child. When turned upside down you have an angled surface - the seesaw function appears when the crocodile is placed on its back and the child can walk/lie on its entire straight surface.
As furniture Bobles grow with the child's needs. The crocodile has three seating levels for a small child. Or 2-3 children can sit together on Bobles Crocodile.
All the tumbling animals can stand alone and will in each their own way influence the motor skill development in a positive direction – having 2, 4, or 8 different tumbling animals together will give enormous opportunities for physical development and motor skills.
Review of Bobles Crocodile

A physical therapist is using this during home visits with children from 0-3. It is small although just what we were looking for.
It is easy to clean and small enough to carry around from one home to the next.
Great European Toy

I know this toy and the company producing them from Germany and I love it. Even though they say not for kids below the age of three, I can say my daughter (16 months) loves the bright color, the soft material and she loves to go up the stairs. Since it is not high she does not get upset when she falls off. Great idea, great toy.
Great concept, Much too small

I am disappointed in this product. My 15 month old loves to climb on anything - and I mean anything. I have been looking for something safe for her to climb on, similar to the foam shapes she has at daycare. I thought this would be it, it's not. If the product were twice as big it might be a hit. This product is so small she didn't even know what to do with it. She was completely disinterested. The quality seems good, but it's hard to believe the price for something so tiny. I'm sending it back.
