We have a fun toy that I keep indoors for active play even when the weather is bad.
Our Labyrinth Balance Board is an easy concept for children ages five and older, but a challenge for everyone who give it a try!
The Labyrinth Balance Board is designed for children 5+. It comes with three colorful balls (one red, one blue, and one yellow) that you place in the grooved labyrinth and navigate by shifting your weight and tilting the board back and forth.
Jojo (age 5) enjoys balancing on the board and I also find it hard to resist. The balance board is REALLY hard for me! I always whip the ball around too fast and miss my intended target. This game definitely takes patience and really builds your core strength.
The three balls are a little smaller than ping-pong sized and have to be hidden from 2-year-old Deeds while not in use. If he finds them, he puts the entire ball inside of his mouth and this is a choking hazard.
However, while supervised, Deeds enjoys trying his balancing skills on the Labyrinth Balance Board just like big brother Jojo!
Both of the boys also like to invent “new” ways of balancing. I see them both trying the “on all fours” approach, which seems quite effective (just don’t pinch your fingers).
The top of the board is natural wood colored and black.
The bottom of the board is green, and Jojo likes flipping it over to use the underside of the board as a nice level surface for setting up action figures and LEGO cities.
I was going to take a picture of MYSELF on the balance board, but decided that the kids were way cuter.
I am very pleased with the Labyrinth Balance Board; the icing on the cake is that it is a “Made in USA” wooden product, made with FSC certified wood!
