bObles Multi-functional Furniture

Instead of climbing up the walls, have the kids climb on the furniture. bObles created a line of fun, whimsical and well-designed kids furniture in shapes like elephants, crocodiles and chickens that turn into steps, boats, tables, seats, balancing pieces and more. bObles encourages motor function, imagination and, most importantly, fun!

Box Play For Kids
Looking for ways to encourage your kid’s creativity while also teaching him about being green and eco-friendly?
