Sparking Imagination, Building Confidence!


The RAD Climbing Arch is a highly popular item for gross motor development and is a variation on our popular Pikler Triangle theme. The apex of the arch angle is not as acute, instead it is rounded making it a highly versatile climbing structure helping to develop very different skills from the ones the Pikler triangle offers. The RAD Climbing Arch instills children with relational sense of place with their bodies as they test, retest and perfect their climbing abilities using all of their limbs, core and body.

The RAD Climbing Arch can be easily paired with our Reversible Climbing Ramp that can be used for climbing, sliding or other imaginative play. It can also be used as a connector between two climbing structures to create a balance beam. Want to turn it into a rocker? Flip it over and add a cushion to keep play fresh.

Although our products are crafted to encourage exploration and free-form play, please never leave your child unattended to avoid injury.

The climbing arch is great for all kinds of open-ended play! The children at my preschool use it as a boat, sea saw, fence, bridge, a connector to a taller ladder with a plank between, you name it!

Solid Climbing Arch and Service

The climbing arch looks great and my kid loves it. Very solid and easy to put together. The customer support was very responsive and they even got me my package before the holiday even though I ordered late. Great company to work with and I will be coming back for the triangle.

Katheryne I.

This item was beautifully crafted and very simple to put together. Our school kids are having a blast! Thanks so much!

LOVE this company!

The pikler arch is so well made and beautiful, I know it will last for years to come. I plan to order all of my sons gross motor toys from them from here on out!
