What do we want to achieve with WONDERWUZZ?
We want to give children the opportunity to play freely and independently. They can decide for themselves whether they want to build something, role-play, exercise or relax and read a book. Design - e.g. handles, - weight and size o are designed that even toddlers can handle our products.
We want to give parents a chance to take a break and let their children play with a clear conscience. With our play furniture, children can occupy themselves for a long time, there neither have hard corners nor sharp edges on which the children can injure themselves.
For the sake of our environment, we want to develop products that accompany our children throughout their childhood and don't become boring after the next developmental step. Their simple and beautiful design never goes out of style and thanks to their multifunctionality they fit into both the nursery and later into the teenage room. We make no compromises when it comes to quality, the avoidance of harmful substances and environmental compatibility.
Where does the name WONDERWUZZ come from
How did the idea for WONDERWUZZ come about?
Another Corona story... we can't all hear it anymore, but that's how it was...
In the first lockdown, my son went from being a chubby and rather lazy baby to a running toddler with a lot of energy.
We were suddenly faced with the completely new challenge of keeping him busy on cold and rainy days in everyday pandemic life without play dates and indoor entertainment options.
We learned quickly
- He's happiest when he's allowed to jump and climb on the bed or our couch
- Exercising, skipping, romping, gymnastics not only tires him out, but also keeps him busy for much longer
Turning our living room into a playroom is ok for a while - especially when we can't have visitors - but not a permanent solution
So I wanted to buy a play sofa for our guest room-turned-playroom that would help us solve all our problems. However, while play couches were already quite the hype in the US and Australia, it was impossible to find anything that could meet our standards in Europe.
So Wonderwuzz was born out of necessity. While building this company was a real challenge during my second pregnancy and then with a newborn and a toddler at home, I've never had so much fun at work in my life. After more than a year of design and development work, we are happy to present our modular play furniture made in Europe for Europe. We hope you are just as excited about the endless possibilities and limitless play for your kids!
