The Wee’un is a folding indoor climbing frame inspired by Emmi Pikler. It is perfect for your little ones to climb, but it is not limited to just climbing, It's also a den, a tunnel, a seat, baby gym and so much more.
After being used as a sensory tunnel or play gym for newborns, it can be used to provide a secure anchor for young toddlers finding their feet and who are in need of a little extra support to cruise and bum shuffle along.
It’s uses continue to grow with your little one as they progress to climbing, one rung at a time until they gain the confidence and physical awareness to get towards the top!
The single rung at top is perfect giving children a central point to balance on, while they get their legs and bodies over and will give you and them the confidence when climbing high in your local playground. If you think of climbing a gate or a wall and even a very similar structure that's a fence stye, you would always place your hands in the centre, so to not bring your weight to far forward and become unbalanced. Getting over the top whether it is the first time or the 100th time, always gives children such a boost of confidence.
With loads of accessories and compilatory products from this range the play is truly open ended.
First designed over 100 years ago by Emmi Pikler, a Paediatrician in 30/40’s to encourage naturally paced motor development, free self-directed movement and build awareness of physical limitations and strengthen their vestibular system. This reduces accidents, improves concentration and focus as well as hand-eye co-ordination.
