The 10 best uses for a Pikler climbing triangle

A climbing triangle can be used by children as young as 6 months . More important than age is your child's developmental level and when they are ready to start using and exploring.

Of course, all babies are different, but some babies start climbing as early as 6 months (that's early, but true). These kids will use the triangle and slide to help. Others are already rolling at this age and can use the lowest step to pull themselves .

Regardless of the child's age, here are our top 10 ways to use the climbing triangle and slide:

1) As a Pikler climbing frame!
The actual benefit of a Pikler climbing triangle, according to the pedagogy of Dr. Emmi Pikler , is of course exploring and climbing the individual rungs. to promote motor skills and development.
