Wooden baby walkers, scooters and wobble balance boards to promote physical development, fitness and balance.
Gross motor development in babies and children is very important in shaping their future physical fitness, and in turn, helping them avoid injury. From walking to running, and climbing stairs, children have a vast amount of physical movements to learn and our collection of wooden, physical development toys aim to help them through each stage. Kids love working out different ways of getting around and as they learn to walk they'll adore our range of push along and ride on walker toys. From scooters to balance bikes children will be able to motor themselves all over the place. We also stock a great range of wooden balance rocker boards that are perfect for developing children's posture, balance, proprioceptive muscles, a range of motion and core strength. Our wooden rocker boards also stimulate mental development as they inspire kids to think of many different imaginative ways of using them. As parents ourselves, at Danu World, we are passionate about high-quality wooden toys, that not only perform brilliantly, keeping children excited and stimulated, but look great and are good for the environment. Our balance bikes and scooters are made from all environmentally friendly materials, most are wooden or the wishbone bike is recycled carpet and fibreglass. These toys are built to last and are painted in non-toxic, water-based paints so children can scoot them along and play with them for years, and they'll still look great, and work perfectly. Children begin learning to walk as toddlers, often taking their first steps by pushing along baby walkers. We have gorgeous wooden baby walkers for boys and girls alike such as the camper van activity walker, which comes with wooden blocks and space for kids to transport their favourite toys, or occasionally siblings, It could even be a stroller for your child's toy baby! This gorgeous baby walker is based on a VW camper van and has eyes painted on its front lights, with a smiley mouth, that makes it look so friendly children will adore it. The wooden blocks can be used to encourage pretend play as children utilise them as steering wheels or foot pedals for their camper van walker. At this stage, toddlers can also use ride on toys such as one of our wooden scooters that are based on beautiful Vespas, what a fantastic first set of wheels!!! Kids will move around slowly to begin with - and often in reverse before working out how to go forwards - but as their confidence and ability increases, they’ll soon be excitedly moving around the floor of your house and garden at speed! These ride on scooters also come with a handy storage tray under the seat pad. From here toddlers will learn to walk unaided and can then use our pull along walker wagon, pulling it along full of toys taking them wherever they want them. Children will also begin using balance bikes, which are now arguably the best way to begin learning how to ride a conventional bike. They encourage balance exercises giving children a good basic stability on two wheels without the use of training wheels/stabilisers. The wishbone three in one adjustable ride on begins life on three wheels as a ride on trike, then converts into a two wheel balance bike by moving the seat pad and removing a wheel making it a fantastic, multiuse purchase that will last a long time. We also stock the fantastically versatile, wooden balance boards from the Wobbel brand, which promise to help to improve poise, fitness and a sense of balance, through movement both indoors, and outside. Made from strong beech wood, these beautiful, curved wobble boards are based on the traditional Waldorf arch board. They have been decorated in many striking colours using water-based paints, and have the option of a natural wool felt base, which provides a non-slip surface, whilst protecting your floors. With the largest Wobbels having an upper weight limit of 200Kg, these are made to be robust and will be loved by all, young and old. Even as babies your children will love playing on the Wobbel boards beginning by simply rocking on them and using them as activity centers in conjunction with their toys. Then as they grow in confidence and begin walking, infants will learn to stand and the possibilities of this toy will grow with them. A Wobbel board can even be used by adults as a form of physical therapy to improve balance, core muscles, or to help to heal ankle sprains and knee injuries, though always check with a professional before you begin training. These balancing boards can be used in an infinite number of ways, you will see your child's imagination flourish and grow as they work out different activities including –
Bridges for both toy cars and children to move over
Tunnels for cars and children to move under
Seesaws with friends
Balance rocker boards, stood, kneeling, sitting and lying. Older children will develop different types of balances, using different parts of their body as they grow in confidence.
Slides, placing the board upside down off an edge of a chair or sofa you can make an indoor slide for children to play on.
Steps or a ramp up to a piece of furniture
A base for balancing building blocks on.
Each activity that is discovered will provide even more fun, kids will start easy, then as confidence grows so will the difficulty of the moves they're able to perform. As adults, you can use the wobble board as a balance trainer performing Yoga exercises, and tai chi to improve your own core strength, balance, and general fitness. The 360 balancing boards are a curved balance disc that opens up a whole new world of possibilities, including balancing and pivoting whilst standing, sitting or crouching. Performing balance board exercises and yoga on these give your core muscles, and legs a great workout. Children will enjoy using them to spin themselves and their toys on, pretending they're flying saucers on a trip to a far-off world, or plates full of a feast to present to their dolls.

Product safety is of the utmost importance when it comes to a child's toy, therefore we have selected toys that meet the highest of safety standards, however, toys should be used under adult supervision as they could pose a slip, trip or fall risk, and you should always look for and adhere to warning labels. When using baby push walkers, and the balance boards, children should never be near stairs and whilst riding bikes it is best practice to ensure your child wears a helmet to prevent head injuries if they fall off.
