This is such a unique, fun, addition into our 'physical education,' although it appears to be a 'toy'......it's MUCH more! The Woggler, is similar to a skateboard in looks, only with no wheels! The key here is balance, and walking. The Woggler integrates wonderfully into our homeschool, as a physical fitness tool, but it also helps with developing balance, agility, coordination, and visual perception. (Visual/depth perception is an issue in our family.)
The Woggler encourages fun, while developing and strengthening muscle, cardio, and the best medicine, laughter! There are designed games for the Woggler, (check out the Rings Game) but you could easily make up some of your own too. Racing against and opponent would be fun as well.
If you have children who are working on strengthening exercises, for rehabilitation, or sports, or have a child who has a learning challenge, The Woggler may be just right for your family. We've really enjoyed the Woggler as part of our physical education time. It is geared for 8 year olds and up, but our 7 year old has been using it,(as well as Mom & Dad) with big smiles! (It could easily be mistaken for a GREAT TOY too!) I give it a definite thumbs UP!!
Check our their website for more information at www.thewoggler.com and tell them The Old Schoolhouse sent you! Homeschoolers and homeschool groups receive a nice discount so make sure to inquire about it! Happy Woggling!
