Balancing Snake

All children love to balance, and this cuddly, soft balancing snake is a safe and fun way to do so. Children can start to gently edge their way along whilst avoiding touching the ground. Taking larger steps from one colour to the next without stepping on the join without overbalancing will test their skills further. The textured filling offers an additional sensory experience on bare feet. Balancing and moving at the same time will help develop children’s competence and confidence whilst having fun.

Suitable for indoor and outdoor play

Polyester with textured fibre filling.

We liked the bright colours, and the Balancing Snake seemed well made from durable materials but I did wonder how the fabric and stitching would hold up after prolonged use. Willow, who obviously didn’t realise it was aimed at developing balance skills and thought it was just a giant snake toy to play, with was really excited and immediately wrapped it around her shoulders. She loves snakes so it was an immediate hit. I think it’s a good way of encouraging and supporting balance and cognitive skills in a fun and playful way, so children can learn while they play. We received this a couple of months ago and, with having had to pack an entire house up for renovations, the instructions are still packed away in a box but, from memory, it was a simple leaflet that showed how to use it. However, it’s quite intuitive to use so doesn’t need much explanation and Willow quickly picked up what to do under my guidance. There are also pictures on the website showing it in use. Super easy to set up and use, just take it out of the packaging and you’re ready to go. The simple but fun design naturally forms a straight line for children to practice their balancing but is also flexible for creative play. Willow loves playing with this, both in its intended use as an aid to developing and improving balance skills and as a fun toy. She likes the rainbow colours and thinks the face and tongue are cute. She is confident when using it. The Balancing Snake helped her build her confidence as it was low to the ground and she didn’t fear falling off. As her confidence grew she used the colour sections to take larger steps and was able to walk along the length of the snake. She also used the Balancing Snake with both bare feet and trainers. She liked the different textures between the padded and micro bean sections. She plays with it 3-4 days per week. My daughter mostly played with this in the living room. Very easy to pack away thanks to its flexibility. It folds very compactly. It kept my child entertained as she enjoyed trying to keep her balance on it as well as using it as a toy for creative play. I liked that this can be used indoors and out for year round entertainment. As well as using at home, we’ve taken it to beaches and parks as it’s easy to pop in the car. My daughter most liked having a giant snake to play with but also had lots of fun trying to make it all the way along it and is very proud of herself when she does. I liked that she learnt skills while having fun. It seems very good value for money as it’s good quality and is very well made. The seams and material are very well made and show no signs of wear even after a couple of months of use. I would buy this as it’s good quality and has proven to be lots of fun as well as helping to develop balance skills. I would recommend this to family and friends with young children as I think it’s a fun and educational piece of equipment.  It has proven to be a much used fun item, which can be used indoors or out, and for one child playing on their own or as a competitive game for several children. The quality is good and it helps developmental skills in a fun way. It’s a simple yet clever way to help children improve their balance skills while having fun. It’s also a fun toy that encourages creative play. Elaine Cowie – Willow 3 Years

Looked good – colourful but wasn’t sure how or where I was going to store it. It’s a great concept and my twins were excited when they saw it. Instructions easy enough to follow. When this arrived just unwrapped and ready to go.  My twins loved this but found it very difficult to use. Material very slippery even with socks off, my three year old twins have good balance, the snake could also be flatter as it rolls over when they walk on it. My twins just wanted to walk on their balancing snake. They would play with this daily. This was mostly played with in the hallway. Hard to stow away as it’s very long and doesn’t stay coiled. It lives next to our skirting board! This did keep my twins entertained but they needed constant adult support. Certainly agree this is ideal to use indoors and outdoors when the weather gets warmer. My twins loved walking along it and trying to balance. I liked how it encouraged my twins to develop different skills to normal. This is good value for money.  The quality is good but needs some design tweaks. I would not buy this as storage is an issue. I would not recommend at it is very limited what you can do with it. A great idea and concept, but needs some changes to make it more practical for younger children and easier storage. Rebecca Pearson – Ava & Oscar 3 Years

Fun colours, fairly well-made for what it is. I was not convinced that a balancing snake would enthuse my toddler. Instructions OK but this is pretty self-explanatory. Easy to get ready for use. My son was interested in the colours and played with it for a short while but lost interest quite soon. My son was not really interested in this toy. The snake was a little slippery on my wooden floor may be better if on carpet.  My son did not use this to perfect his balancing skills as he preferred to play with it like a soft toy. He would play with this in the living room. I would not say this toy is space efficient. I don’t think this is suitable for outdoor as it is a little slippery on patio and on grass, the material is likely to get wet.  My son did love the fun colours.  As this was not a hit with our son we now use as a draft excluder in the living room. Personally this was not the ideal toy for our son, but may suit others. However, it is well-made for what it is.  Michelle Cheung – Arthur 3 Years
