Below are some of the products BOBLES has shared with ToyDirectory and TDmonthly
The worm chair is meant for children who have a hard time sitting still all day in school. The worm chair is flat in one end and curved in the other end, which enables children to silently (due to the material) be in movement while sitting at their desk. The idea is that the child can use the worm in different ways — to play games, for example. The Worm encourages "better posture and [and] improved learning curve," Director Mette Dyhrberg of bObles told TDmonthly. This product was a winner of a prototype exhibition at an Interior Design Show in 2008. Launch date: 2009.

The Snake can function as a table, and may be used together with other tumbling animals in an obstacle course. It can also be turned upside down and used as a boat. "bObles is a playful interior environment for children, with a design their parents would love to place within their homes. The tumbling animals can be used as furniture, but [are] meant for play. The whole idea is to enhance children's motor skills while playing!" Director Mette Dyhrberg of bObles told TDmonthly. Launch date: September 2008.

The Chicken can be placed on its wide surface or turned upside down. When the chicken is placed on its back there is a rocking function. For the very small child who has just learned to get around, balance will be challenged by lying on the chicken and feeling the rocking, and just lying next to the chicken and touching it will provide good stimuli for the child. A child can later sit, then stand and walk on the Chicken. When used as a stepping stone, the product does not slide. The material is soft, too, making it nice for use with bare feet. The Chicken also has a very usable see-saw function, since it lies stable and secure, is easy to control, and has a good angle in relation to the stretch/movement of the ankle joint. Launch date: September 2008.

The Pig is available in two sizes that 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. The six-layer Pig has a size that enables the child to sit on it while in movement, which enhances not only a child's balance but also the joint senses. Children can lie across them and have the backside of their bodies strengthenend, and children can exercise their arms through the pressure from their own body weight. Fine motor control can be stimulated by putting things into the pig's snout and picking them up again. Launch date: September 2008.

The Tumbling Fish are available in two stackable sizes. The low one is for children who have just learned to sit; the big one is for older children; stack the two and they fit teenagers and adults. The Fish grows along with children, allowing them to use the Fish over a long period of time. Kids can roll the animals to one another, or roll and chase them. The size of the six-layer Fish allows a child to sit on it even while it is moving , which enhances the child’s balancing skills. Children can lie across these Fish and have the backside of their bodies strengthened, and children can exercise their arms through the pressure from their own body weight. Launch date: September 2008.

The Crocodile's most obvious function is as a staircase, which enhances a child's strength and balance. When turned upside down, there's an angled surface. The see-saw function appears when the crocodile is placed on its back and the child can walk/lie on its entire straight surface. The furniture will grow with the child given that the small child can muscle in on the low step and the higher steps are for the toddler. The crocodile has three seating levels for the small child and is splendid for the social dimension that two to three children can sit together on the same piece of furniture. There is also the option to stack them as a bench, which allows two heights. "bObles is a playful interior environment for children, with a design their parents would love to place within their homes," Director Mette Dyhrberg of bObles told TDmonthly. Launch date: September 2008.

Parents can place a small child in the curve between the legs of the elephant and it works as a back rest. The elephant also has a rocking function where the child is challenged and stimulated while sitting. Later on, the child can stand on top of the elephant’s feet, which challenges the child’s balance while standing. The elephant is also good to lie across — flat on the stomach as well as on the back. Last but not least, it is a great chair for sitting, for both children and parents. "All the tumbling animals can stand alone and will, each in their own way, influence motor skill development in a positive direction, but to have more tumbling animals — four, eight or 15 different tumbling animals together — will give enormous opportunities for bodily development," Director Mette Dyhrberg of bObles told TDmonthly. The Elephant has won the following awards: Formidable 2006 - Formex Stockholm and 2008 - Salone Del Mobile, Milano. Launch date: September 2007.
