Montessori pedagogy: simply and understandably explained

What is a Pikler Triangle?

The unusual name comes from the Hungarian pediatrician Emmi Pikler , whose pedagogy, like the Montessori pedagogy, placed the emphasis on free play for infants and children.

Our climbing frames are a tool that helps all infants and children to develop . In line with RIE and Montessori philosophy , they help strengthen the child's connection to their mind and the outside world by allowing them to control and explore their own body movements.

In addition, RIE parenting norms include ensuring that children are not placed in physical danger. That's why we think it's important for children to be able to safely explore their own physical limits . The climbing triangle is a tool that helps children develop intrinsic motivation and improve gross motor skills .

What are the advantages of a Pikler triangle?

The Pikler Triangle is a challenge for babies and toddlers, and the sense of accomplishment they and their loved ones feel when they complete it is incredibly beautiful to behold.

Above all, the climbing triangles contribute to independence . This is one of the foundations of Montessori pedagogy . They work independently on their motor development without even knowing it.

The triangle can be assembled from different shapes. The advantage of the different constructions is that each variant has a unique effect. With the different shapes and degrees of hardness of the slide, your child's feet will be
massaged. The additional construction variants ensure that all knots in your little one's feet are stressed.

The stimulation of the feet is very important. It helps prevent flat feet and improve posture for life .

This toy also stimulates and develops children's imagination . For them, our toy is more than just a development tool - it's a spaceship, a pirate ship, or whatever they want to make of it.

From what age can you use a climbing triangle?

While some suggest as early as 6 months, we agree with the recommendation from RIE and Montessori professionals that the triangle can be moved to the " yes space " once your baby starts moving actively to build confidence strengthen.

Remember that the "yes room" is an area where your baby feels completely safe.

In principle, the children do not need any instructions to get involved in the Pikler triangle. They can try things, test the limits of their abilities and explore different things: our little ones feel the need to do this from an early age. At Pikler, the principle applies: " The more children are allowed to design and play themselves, the more freely they can develop their interests and the more self-confident they become."

How long do climbing triangles last?

Our climbing frames are designed to last - especially over years. As long as the owner takes care of our climbing triangles, we expect them to last at least 5-10 years .

We strongly recommend that you keep the product indoors as much as possible to protect them from rain and other weather conditions.

In addition, our wood is the best wood for children's toys - plywood and beech, which is extremely durable.

Is a climbing triangle safe for my child?

Absolutely! As long as there is proper oversight there shouldn't be any safety issues. Remember that most babies and growing children are born with an innate sense of balance and risk-taking that prevents them from climbing when they don't feel ready.

We should let them touch and feel the object and then climb when they feel ready.

When they're really ready, they start pulling to stand and put their feet on the rings to stand. Eventually, as the years go by, they will continue to climb higher and higher and reach the summit. It's amazing to watch. You'll soon see them making progress in climbing and in their daily activities.
