Elephant Tumbling Animal
Bobles is children's furniture that encourages play, creativity and physical exercise, while at the same time espousing good Danish design. Their Tumbling Animals are based on simple geometrically forms - cut in the shape of animals.Tumbling Animals are suitable as children's furniture, but are designed for creative play. The child is able to tumble, roll, balance, seesaw, rock, jump and gain some bodily experience, which can serve as the foundation for further development.
The Tumbling Animals are produced in a firm foam with a soft surface, making them very easy to clean and are tested especially for children and are free of toxins or phthalates.
When the designer Bolette Blædel was on maternity leave with her first son, she soon discovered the scarcity of children's furniture that encourages play, creativity and physical exercise, while at the same time satisfying her preference for good, Danish design. With her sister, the fashion designer Louise Blædel, she therefore conceived the idea of creating a series of multifunctional furniture that children want to play with and adults want to bring into their sitting room.
Today, the result is a group of animals, each with its own shape and numerous functions, e.g. an elephant, which one moment can be used for riding and the next be turned into a boat, a table or a rocking footstool. bObles' furniture is not only striking design objects in bright colours and geometric shapes - it also gives children a unique opportunity to develop their motor function and understanding of their own body, while playing and using their imagination.View other products by Bolette and Louise Blaedel
