For the active super learners, the wobble stool (AKA Flexi Stool / Bloom Stool / Hokki Stool) is a colourful and versatile option for the classroom or home. It creates an active learning environment where physical movement is used to support focus, memory and cognitive development. It also encourages mobility and core strength.
It's excellent for the general classroom as well as children with ADHD and/or SPD due to its active movement. It is compact and lightweight, and features a non-slip, rounded base.
The stool sitting surface measures 33cm in diameter.
COLOUR: a lovely soft blue.
The size guide below gives an approximate idea, however please measure from the ground to the top of the user's knees and choose a stool closest to this height. When the user is sitting on the stool with their feet out in front of them, it's important that their feet can be flat on the floor whilst their knees and hips form right angles. It's important that the user's knees are not lower than their hips as this would cause them to be tipping forwards constantly and would affect the safety and therapeutic use of the stool PLUS increase the risk of it becoming a distraction and risk of tipping over.
General Guide (dependant upon whether the user is overly short or tall for their age) is 31cm stool = kindy, prep & grade 1; 37cm stool = grades 1 - 4; 45cm stool = grades 4 and up.
The Wobble Stool is not a stationary chair and it's base in unstable.
Do not kneel or stand on the Wobble Stool.
Do not lean back.
Only sit on Wobble Stool if both of your feet are planted flat on the ground supporting your bodyweight and use extreme caution (do not remove feet from ground and rest them on the stool base).
