The Folding Activity Arch is a great way to help develop gross motor skills, fine motor skills and muscle tone.
Simply attach your child’s favourite toys (not included!) to the five velcro straps and then encourage them to reach up and grab each item. The sturdy tubular steel frame can be folded away when not in use and because it’s portable, you can take it with you – providing an instant activity for children of all ages with no mess or fuss!

The Folding Activity Arch enables parents and carers to attach the child’s own favourite toys, providing visual stimulation which makes it far more engaging than a toy with fixed hanging items.
The hanging toys and positions can all be swapped to keep it challenging for the user and the five adjustable velcro straps mean toys can be located at a range of heights – making it ideal for use by children lying on the floor, sitting and even standing.
Stretching to reach toys helps to develop muscle tone which is particularly beneficial for children with a range of conditions where ‘hypotonia’, or low muscle tone, is a symptom. This includes Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) and Dyspraxia.
