Meet the Maker

Director, Dinah Pherous, said when her search for a well-made, assembled, sturdy and attractive indoor play frame left her empty handed she decided to do something about it.

Her focus was to create a high-quality natural wood product – beautiful to touch, practical to use, and easy to store – that assisted with self guided learning.

"We've combined our love of design and passion for creating the finest products to create something special - not just for our own kids, but for all kids."

- Founder Dinah Pherous

Why is it Called the Pikler Triangle?

Developed by Hungarian paediatrician, Dr Emmi Pikler, the Pikler Triangle acts as the perfect building block in children's gross motor development - giving them ability to intuitively discover their abilities and physical limits in their own time. It stimulates a child’s imagination and provides a fun, wholesome and eco friendly source of tactile learning.

How does The Pikler Triangle work with the Montessori Method of Learning?

Montessori is an approach to learning which focuses on children developing independently in their own time. Within the Montessori Method, children are given the materials to explore their world and develop cognitive and motor skills as they go. The Pikler Triangle provides children with the tools they need to practice physical challenges at their own pace and encourage curiosity and self-confidence.
