While on maternity leave with her first son, Bolette Blaedel noticed that there was a lack of children’s furniture that incorporated four important components: play, creativity, physical exercise, and good, Danish design. With help from her fashion designer sister, Louise Blaedel, the company bObles dk and a series of bObles Tumbling Animals were born. Tumbling Animals are multifunctional furniture pieces that your kids will adore, and you won’t mind sharing your living space with these vibrant, entertaining creatures.
Tumbling Animals are a group of colorful animals, each with its own shape and function. For example, the crocodiles shown in the above image can be used to mimic a staircase, but when turned upside down, you get an angled surface. When the crocodile is placed on his back, your child can experience a seesaw function. Each crocodile has three seating levels for small children, and they are long enough for kids to sit together atop them, for a cool social situation. As another example, the elephant tumbling toy may be used as a chair, for riding, or may be turned into a boat, table, or rocking footstool.
