Alex Monkey Balance Board

Amazon.com

Improve your balance and coordination with the Alex Monkey Balance Board. Perfectly sized for little feet--yet able to accommodate larger ones--this sturdy wooden wobbly board features an adorable monkey graphic. Designed for ages three and up, the board supports balancers up to 200 pounds, making it suitable for the entire family to enjoy. Easy for adults to assemble, this balance board provides durability and fun that can be used indoors as well as outdoors.

Improve balance and coordination with a sturdy wooden wobbly board.

Colorful Design Encourages Physical Activity

The Monkey Balance Board is designed to encourage physical activity by improving balance, coordination, and leg strength. To use it, kids can stand with one foot on either side of the board. Put one foot on the board before carefully adding the other and attempting to balance by shifting your weight from side to side. For fun and encouragement, the board is decorated with a playful purple monkey graphic on the surface that's sure to invite children of all ages to step aboard and try to balance.

Alex Monkey Balance Board
Awarded Parenting Magazine Mom-Tested! Pick.

Sturdy Construction Provides Durability

Formed of lightweight yet sturdy plywood, the Monkey Balance Board consists of four pieces held together by six screws. Once the basic assembly is complete, the board can support weight in excess of 200 pounds. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, the board features a laminate coating on the surface to protect the monkey graphic from wear and tear.

Using the Monkey Balance Board

In testing, the Monkey Balance Board performed as described. Assembly took only a few minutes, and our testers (weighing as much as 200 pounds) found the board strong, supportive, and easy to use. However, the simple nature of balancing may cause some users to become bored after a few minutes of use. Still, younger children may find the activity useful for emulating skateboarding, surfing, and other activities they're too young for.

What's in the Box

Platform, two sideboards, dowel, six screws, and instructions.

Customer Reviews

Very well made nd good quality.
Autumn Garrod
It is too small for kids over 5 years of age, so neither of our kids played with it much.
JohnnyC
It gives him his own board to play on and helps him with balance and coordination.

I got this toy for my 4 year old daughter. At first she wasn't that impressed; she had been hoping for a princess toy. But once she tried it, she loved it. She gets on it all the time while she is watching TV, and she also uses it as a platform for her toys and stuffed animals. It is small enough to not be a storage problem and a great way to encourage physical activity when it is too hot or cold to go outside. There is no weight limit on the product, so I've even tried it out myself!

I'm a Physical Therapist Assistant I provide home physical therapy for kids with special needs an this is a great toy! My kids absolutely love it when Alex comes out to play and it is super durable I can't tell you how many times I have dropped it or my kids have dropped it. There are quite a few dents and scratches on it now but I use it way more than the typical kid would. Good bright colors I have my kids tell me what color Alex's belly is or I will have them find his eyes and ears. Really great very durable good for gross motor and balance skills. Will buy again when mine finally breaks :)

This is one of the few toys that my kids actually play with. I love that they're getting balance workouts while playing, and they love "surfing" like Daddy. It didn't break under my 250 pound brother, either. Great toy.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My two testers had a blast with this Alex Balance Board. They range in age from 2 1/2 to 13. The board can support weights in excess of 200lbs, and is very durable, its been dropped many many times by my toddler. Both kids had a blast with it, the 2 1/2 year old has the idea of it, and will be great to help her with her coordination and such. Given my son is special needs he really has fun with toys as such and they help him out too with his coordination. It did take some time to build, screw holes were a bit off but once built it is a very durable product that will last for a very very long time and take plenty of abuse and give lots of lessons with balance and coordination to your young ones!

Update: We have had this for a month and a half now and over a few weeks my daughter really learned how to balance herself on it, holding on at first, moving it to furniture to help her get her balance, then proceeding to move it away and try. We still think its a great product:)

this is fun. You need a drill to put it together. I tried with a screwdriver and... no. So, that was unexpected (maybe I just didn't read that I'd have to put it together).. but well, you do. 3yo caught on quickly. It's fun. Not overly fun.. but good gross motor in the house on a cold winter day.

I bought this balance board for either my 1 1/2 year old or my 5 1/2 year old, I wasn't sure who would enjoy it. Well, they both love it and I need to buy another one! The box comes with simple instructions and it is quick and easy to assemble. It only says '3+' and does not list a max age or weight restrictions. My 1 1/2 year old loves it and uses it without any issue and my 44lb 5 1/2 year old loves it too! She likes to just stand on it while talking to us while my little one likes the challenge. We use it indoors, it sinks into the ground outside and it worries me to use it on the sidewalk.

Great toy and worth the small price!

My daughter has sensory issues and I saw her occupational therapist had one of these in her office. Since we can't make it to therapy every week I've tried recreating the OT's office at home. This is s hit.

Based upon the picture I had believed the board to allow rocking in 360 degrees. The board only allows side-to-side rocking and therefore is limited as a balance trainer. However, it is inexpensive and solid.
