Simple as - last minute Christmas presents. Should we get a wobble board for our 2 year old toddler?

There are cheaper ones but this was the first one google showed.

These are lovely. (we had one at the Playgroup I worked at). The children enjoyed them - can be used as a a tunnel for cars, teddies can hide under it, can be used as race track for cars to slide down, obviously can be used for standing/wobbling on, or jumping off the other side.

But....we got a grant for funding that paid for ours - as a private family, for one child - I don't think it is worth it. (but if you have the money, or want to splash out, yes they are good).

Thanks for the response. It sounds awful to say"we have the money", it's just that he's got so many aunties and uncles and they're all getting the smaller presents I liked and my big bro is getting him a trike. My parents got him a mini playground for the garden, it's all a bit crazy but only child/grandchild in the family so far. His little brother will arrive in May, so it'll be 2 of them at some point x

You can get them much cheaper on etsy, just check the delivery costs and timescales.

We have one and it doesn't get used nearly as much as I'd hoped. They like standing on it when it is like a bridge and using it as a step to get on other furniture but neither of them ever wobbles on it. But lots of people in a Facebook group I am in have them and say they get used all the time, so....

Ours got used a little bit but not as much as I'd hoped. We ended up giving them to the SENCO at their school when we moved house as I couldn't see the point in packing them.
