These products create a creative environment in which children can express their individuality and develop as individuals. Through play, children are able to solve problems using their own ideas and work together collaboratively
Stapelstein feels that free and spontaneous play is essential to a child's development.
Stacking Stones were designed to support and encourage children's natural tendency toward movement, balancing, playing with blocks or using them as bowls.
Additionally, they have created a Balance Board that complements the Stones. Kids can use these to wobble and move—each board stacks perfectly inside one of Stapelstein's Stepping Stones!
They also make a step ladder, a great tool for building towers and water-play structures and making balance beams.
The Stones and Boards product encourages gross motor play, creativity and active thinking in children even from an early age.
The Stapelstein Company makes their toys in Germany using environmentally friendly and sustainable practices. The Stones and Boards are waterproof, long-lasting, recyclable—and fun!
