Triclimb Natural Pikler Climbing Frame

The classic Triclimb triangle climbing frame with a quick folding mechanism. Perfectly formed to encourage children to stand, climb and conquer at their own pace, which forms the basis of Montessori teaching. The Triclimb climbing frame naturally inspires confidence and builds strength in your little ones as they reach new developmental stages. Each step on the ladder signals a new achievement and a new goal.

Children begin to reach and pull themselves up on the frame at around 9 months. At this young age Triclimb provides the perfect stable platform for early standing. As confidence and muscle strength grows children can begin to climb the ladder and eventually reach the top. At the top of Triclimb are two rungs rather than one which allows children to pause, assess and rotate before climbing down the other side. When provided with the opportunity children will reach each milestone through their own determination, the achievement is theirs.

More about Triclimb & the Pikler climbing frame: 

The origins of the Pikler triangle climbing frame come from Emmi Pikler a Hungarian Paediatrician who pioneered theories on child development in the 1930/40s. Centered around a respectful relationship between infant and parent as well as natural progression of motor development through free movement and play. Emmi Pikler believed it was important to offer children the opportunities to move naturally according to their inherent ability. This is the very essence of Triclimb.

The original Pikler triangle is based on the thinking of Emmi Pikler, a paediatrician originally from Vienna. She developed a new theory of childhood development in the 1930’s/40’s, which was based on encouraging children to move freely and develop at their own pace. She observed that when looking at accident stats, children who had the freedom to roam wild, climbing and jumping to their hearts content, tended to be more physically capable, and could fall without hurting themselves thanks to their greater understanding of their body and limitations. Pikler devoted most of her life to understanding the natural development needs of children, and founded the Lóczy orphanage in 1946, where she encouraged a comfortable atmosphere that fostered the conditions needed for healthy play.

Schema’s are the repetitive behaviours that your child does to learn new skills, such as rolling a car back and forth all day long. They’re super useful in cognitive development, and equip them for when they grow up and learn adult skills like driving a car. The Triclimb is really great for supporting a few major patterns of play and behaviour. In particular, Triclimb supports Orientation, Trajectory, and Enclosure.
