The Fish is available in two sizes and they can be stacked. The low one is for the child who has just learned to sit. The big one is for the older child, and once you stack them, they fit teenagers and grown-ups. It is nice to have an example of each animal, because the child grows along with them, and as a result they can be used over a long period of time. You can roll the animal to one another, or roll and chase it. The 3-layer version of the Fish is a seat for the small child – and later they can stand on it to take steps up/down from it, which enhance strength, balance and coordination. The 3-layer version is superb as a step stool in the bathroom, since it does not slide on the wet floor. The size and material makes it so light that the child can lift the tumbling animal themselves.
When the designer Bolette Blædel was on maternity leave with her first son, she soon discovered the scarcity of children's furniture that encourages play, creativity and physical exercise, while at the same time satisfying her preference for good, Danish design. With her sister, the fashion designer Louise Blædel, she therefore conceived the idea of creating a series of multifunctional furniture that children want to play with and adults want to bring into their sitting room.
Today, the result is a group of animals, each with its own shape and numerous functions, e.g. an elephant, which one moment can be used for riding and the next be turned into a boat, a table or a rocking footstool. bObles' furniture is not only striking design objects in bright colours and geometric shapes - it also gives children a unique opportunity to develop their motor function and understanding of their own body, while playing and using their imagination.
"It is incredibly important to our learning later in life that the development of our motor skills as children is not restricted. Children's body, emotions and learning ability benefit if they move and experiment motorically, e.g. by hanging over the arm of a sofa or rocking on a chair. We have called our animals 'romping furniture', because they have been designed to challenge and develop children's movement skills during play," explains the designer Bolette Blædel.
