The Pikler Triangle Climbing Frame is a classic wooden climbing structure. It’s a strong, stable, lightweight and beautiful wooden play product that also looks magnificent in the home. The Pikler brings us back to the fundamentals of childhood, and it allows our children the opportunity to play, create and discover the world around them, at a pace that is unique and makes sense to them as an individual.
Climbing frames offer sensory, and motor development opportunities not found with traditional ‘toys’, and they allow your child to reach new heights and milestones in their own time and in a safe environment. They allow your child to develop many skills, including grasping, standing, playing, climbing, building strength and developing confidence with each and every interaction.
A Pikler is fantastic for toddlers wanting to climb, since it’s challenging but doesn’t offer any real danger. Ideally, a child will use a Pikler with no adult intervention, (this is very different to a lack of adult supervision!!) meaning your toddler will have the opportunity to test his/her skills and build their confidence through trial and error, essentially learning how to move safely on their own.
A 9-month-old left to his own imagination will use a Pikler Frame in a very different way to a 3 yr old.
At four months of age, the Pikler can be used as a baby gym by simply hanging toys and objects from the rungs of the frame. (please ensure you follow safety guidelines when attaching Play gym objects)
At 9months of age, your little ones are often still finding their feet, so they will use the Pikler to pull-up and lean on. You may find you little one ‘gliding’ in and around the base of the triangle.
As your child’s skill set and imagination grow, so too does the way in which they will engage with their Pikler.
At two years of age, you may find your little one climbing halfway up and halfway down again, sliding between the bars, or simply using the frame as a fun new play space or reading nook.
By about age 3, (earlier or later depending on where the individual child has prioritised their gross development), you will find your child starting to experiment with climbing over the Pikler. Again, without adult intervention or encouragement, your child will only go as far as they are comfortable and confident, ensuring their chances of a tumble are slim. Whilst it is important not to intervene, it is just as important to support your toddler’s successes as well as their failures.
These climbing frames often come upon Montessori websites, although the idea originally comes from the RIE technique. Like most specialty children’s furniture, it costs a small fortune. The ones I saw ranged from $330 to well over $600 CAD, and that was just the climber, no slide included. Um…. no thanks. $600 for a wooden triangle is a bit ridiculous. There’s a Kickstarter that is selling them at about $250 a climber, but even then since it’s a Kickstarter, you have no guarantees about when it’s going to arrive, and it still doesn’t include the slide/climbing ramp.

Modifiable Pikler triangle “Mopitri” Regular price€279,00
Your baby will always climb somewhere – on chairs, on the table, on the sofa, on the cabinet. Sometimes it is even too dangerous for your little ninja! But climbing is a natural skill for a baby.

Modifiable Pikler triangle “Mopitri”
The freedom of movement is very important in a healthy and natural child’s development. Children should not be taught or stimulated in faster physical development. Before learning to walk, the baby should know how to sit, and for each phase, the child will know by himself when he is ready.
Ability to climb plays a big role in the child’s motor skills and balance; therefore, children naturally tend to climb everywhere. Literally – everywhere. Parents’ role here is to provide a safe way for a child to work on his/her climbing skills. And this is where the Pikler triangle comes into the game!
Modifiable Pikler triangle “Mopitri” is the most unique and innovative climbing triangle in the world! Change the shape of the climbing triangle each day, so it never gets boring for a child to use it. Lower or steeper triangle, house-shaped or flat, or maybe two small triangles, imagination is your limit! Adapt the climbing challenges to your child’s development stage and abilities. Add the sliding ramp for even more fun activities.

Why you should buy a Pikler triangle
The Pikler climbing triangle is popular in Australia for its versatility, the enjoyment it brings to little ones across the country, and the science behind the climbing frame. Inspired by Pikler’s theory of child development, in which children should move freely and develop at their own pace, and parents don’t put them into positions they wouldn’t be able to handle themselves, the Pikler triangle allows kids to learn how to move their bodies and climb independently.
The size of the climbing triangle is relatively compact and is great for indoor use, so you can easily watch as your children explore the steps and hit development milestones when they are mentally and physically ready.
