Your child is very active and loves movement? Then a Pikler triangle is just the thing. Different sizes are offered, so there is something for every age. In addition, the climbing triangle can be super-extended with a slide or climbing wall. You promote the motor skills, coordination, and concentration of your child.
Our checklist and the appropriate product recommendations will make your purchase decision easier.
- You can offer a Pikler Triangle to your child when he or she is already crawling safely, can pull him or herself up independently, and is beginning to climb up things. This usually happens between 9 and 11 months.
- But even before that, the climbing triangle can help your child learn to pull himself up or stand up. Your child can hold on to it and develop playfully.
- Extensions keep the triangle interesting for a long time and it is often used even into elementary school age.
- We do not recommend extending the Pikler Triangle with a slide or climbing wall before 2 to 2.5 years of age, because your child must already have a certain level of security and be able to control the climbing gait well.
- Pikler triangles are offered from 60 to 120 cm. So you can choose the right climbing triangle for your child from sizes S to XL.
- You should choose the size according to your child’s age and stage of development.
- The small models (S and M: 60 to 75 cm) is suitable for toddlers up to about 3 years.
- Older children can eventually use models of 90 cm. However, even taller triangles do not lead to increased encouragement but are more dangerous. This is because the greater height ensures a higher risk of injury.
- You also need to consider the space where the climbing triangle will be placed. The largest triangle with 120 cm needs up to 2.5m2.
- Never place the Pikler Triangle near windows, cupboards, stairs or other objects where your child can hurt himself.
- It is not uncommon for children to fall. Fall protection mats or other padding on the floor can help protect against injuries.
- Many models are also angle-adjustable as well as foldable, so you can put it away super with little space.
- In addition to the fun of playing, it also provides for your child’s development in the areas of motor skills, balance and coordination.

FAQ About The Pikler Triangle
As soon as the child independently manages to climb over the highest rung to the other side, a combination is possible. This time usually comes between 2 and 3 years of age.
At the toddler age, triangles of 60 to 75 cm are appropriate. The older the child gets, the higher the triangle can be. However, up to 90 cm is perfectly adequate. Even larger climbing triangles only result in a higher risk of injury and the promotion is not increased.
Already with 6 to 8 months the climbing triangle can be helpful for pulling up and learning to stand. With time, it will then also try to climb up. However, the Pikler triangle is not really used for climbing until about 11 months of age at the earliest.
A Pikler triangle is a climbing facility for children from 0.5 years old up to elementary school age. It comes in different sizes, making it suitable for different age groups.
