Based on Montessori method for learning, and from the observations of Dr. Pikler (Pikler Triangles), the sturdy indoor climbing structure was developed over 100 years ago. It empowers children 6 months to 5 years old to safely explore and practice their gross motor skills development at their own pace.
Yes! From a construction standpoint, we build ours using strong, yet flexible birch rungs - durable hardware and safe finishes. Our climbers are robust and resist any bending, twisting or movement. All of the edges are rounded.
We have tested the strength of our climbing triangle rungs up to 170lbs of center weight, however, we only recommend a sustained/usable weight up to 95lbs on the structure.
Always be nearby and observing your little ones when using our play structures - just in case they need some assistance and for safety. With proper supervision and appropriate usage, your little ones should feel free to explore and play. Our triangles are best suited for carpeted or padded floors, whether on a rug or play mat. Hardwood floors are not recommended. Also, check for nearby furniture and remove anything with sharp edges or that might be unsafely accessible.
While there are various thoughts around this, the general answer is around 6 months of age or when your child begins to actively move around. They'll begin to interact with it, but probably won't climb on it for a bit!
With proper care, our climbing triangles should last several years. We recommend keeping them indoors, away from water and other elements.
