The Pikler triangle is a triangular-shaped climbing structure designed for young children to develop their gross motor skills, balance, and independence.
Pikler Climbing Frame – also called a Pikler Triangle Climbing Frame – is a classic wooden climbing structure. Designed by Doctor Emmi Pikler, it reinforces the principles of children playing, creating, and discovering the world around them at a pace that is unique to them and makes sense to them as individuals.
Children can already interact with a Pikler Frame before their first birthday, developing their skills of using the frame and triangle – they might even get a bit gutsy once they learn how to use the frame, too!
An ideal playing room for a child is spacious, well-lit, and beautiful. The child needs to feel safe and confident there. However, a kid’s room is also a space for education, development and personal growth.
Kids love to play and you should encourage this. Thanks to toys and games, the little ones explore the surrounding world, develop their physical and intellectual abilities, establish emotional connections with other people and learn to express themselves. So the process of playing does not boil down to simply having fun — it also involves a lot of learning. Toys spark the children’s imagination, engage their senses and teach them to interact with the environment.
While puzzles and math may be gripping enough for your child, the Pikler method of education seems best suited to help kids develop their intellectual and motor skills. Since children’s physical and mental abilities develop together, the optimal educational toys for toddlers are the ones that involve their bodies.
