Pikler Triangle: The Perfect Height

From the experts at Studio Belize® - Design studio for children's products:


What height should the Pikler triangle be?

When choosing the height of a Pikler Triangle, there is one main question. How long should your child be able to play with the Pikler Triangle?
Pikler triangle are offered with heights between 50 cm & 120 cm. However, the small Pikler Triangles are only suitable for families who have room for two Pikler Triangles, as these are only suitable for children of a very young age. The very large Pikler triangles (120 cm), on the other hand, are more suitable for sports clubs, as they require a great deal of space and can only be used safely in combination with very thick sports mats as fall protection.



So the golden way lies in the middle. We recommend a height between 70 - 90 cm. Children can play with a Pikler triangle of this height between the age of 8 months and 7 years. This corresponds to a playing time of about 6-7 years. A Pikler Triangle of this height provides ample stimulation and is suitable for raising babies, for climbing games for toddlers, as well as for imaginative play for slightly older children.
