We were introduced to the little balance box mom and physical therapist invented. The
Little Balance Box is unique because it allows children to use their hands and/or forearms in
a variety of positions and from any direction to maximize stability and develop balance. The
floating feet provided feedback during transitions from kneeling to standing and also
allow the Little Balance Box to seamlessly move with your child across various surfaces
such as carpet, tile, and wood. The Little Balance Box can an also be used as a toddler
table. The top surface is easy to clean and the raised frame helps keep little items in place.
