ROCK-IT boards provide for endless open-ended and creative play. They show us time and time again that children instinctively seek opportunities for their imaginations and learning capacities to be challenged. That simple is best! When we provide the basics, the kids will do the rest! Rock-it boards are an amazing play and developmental resource that bring joy and enthusiasm , while at the same time supporting...
- Body and Brain development
- Balance and Coordination
- Sensory Integration
- Creative Open-ended Play
- Rhythmic - Calming and Relaxing
For children the possibilities are endless! AND...your rock-it boards will last for years!
Rocking is an innate, rhythmic action which soothes and relaxes. Just as mothers instinctively rock their babies to quiet and calm, so too children of all ages are captivated by things that rock.
Teachers frequently tell us of the therapeutic benefits of the rock-it boards for hyperactive children and for those on the autistic and/or SPD spectrum. They can help anxious and agitated children to calm and settle.
The curved rock-it boards have immediate appeal to the very children who need them most. Having these boards available in our homes and learning centres gives our children the opportunity to self-soothe, to calm and relax. Just a wonderful asset for children, sure and simple.
BABY EARTH - This is the baby of the Earth range... a perfect starter board for crawlers and toddlers under 3 years, but still useable up to 6/7 years. Growing healthy bodies and brains!
Providing our young ones with simple, natural, open-ended play resources to stimulate learning and to strengthen balance!
Mini Earth is a sturdy little board, a little shorter, than the Little Earth board and comes with standard cork bottom to provide extra stability for our little ones.
Cork provides a resilient, non slip and tactile surface which is important when our toddlers are experimenting...climbing on, crawling over, or rocking on their board.
Easy for this age to pick up and carry, move around, or using as the bridge, the cave, the tunnel, the fence....

LITTLE EARTH - Ideal for children 3 -7 years. This extremely sturdy and versatile balance and play board is designed for young, active, growing children. A wonderful natural, play and movement resource - building strong bodies and brains!
Little Earth is developmentally appropriate for this age, enabling effective rocking for little legs! It has straight ends so the board is stable when turned upside down to crawl or walk across.
It can be used in imaginative open-ended play as a table, bench, slide, tunnel, bridge, road, boat, fence, cradle....ideas unlimited!
