LUOTO climbing arch is a multi-functional kids’ furniture. It has been designed to support active play and diverse development of gross motor skills, coordination, balance, and strength. Climbing fulfills kids’ natural built-in need to learn new things and learning to climb is a wonderful way to get physically active and build kids’ confidence. As mentioned, LUOTO also has many other functions beyond climbing. It can be used as a rocker, play fort, baby gym, goal, kids’ table, toy storage or as a side table! When turned upside down LUOTO climbing arch works as a rocker – perfect for little pirates to voyage in or to be used as a dreamy naptime nest. For this use we recommend getting the KAURA cushion which makes the use of the arch as a rocker safer and more comfortable. In addition to working as a climbing arch in its original arch position, LUOTO can also be used as a play fort, a goal or as a baby gym. Cover it with a blanket and place a cushion (like KAURA) underneath to turn it into a play fort or hang sensory stimuli from few of the top rungs to turn it into a baby gym. In its arch position LUOTO also works as a perfect indoor football goal or as goal for pretty much any fun and games the kids might come up with! When turned on its side so that the backboard of the arch is facing up the climbing arch can be used as a table. Place it against a wall to act as a side table or combine with a small stool to use it as a kids’ activity table for painting, crafting, and playing. If you turn the arch on its side so that the backboard is facing the floor and push it against a wall (or another LUOTO arch), it becomes a toy storage. Great for big stuffed animals or for pillows and blankets! The age range for using the climbing arch is 0–9 years: • 0–12 m/o can use it as baby gym, rocker or support for crawling and learning to stand • 1–5 y/o can use it as climbing arch, rocker, play fort, goal etc. • 6–9 y/o can use it as table, rocker, play fort, goal etc. As a side table the LUOTO works for kids and adults of any age!
