Teaching dexterity and patience to the young and young at heart with Oxybul!

Oxybul’s mission is to bring out the best in every child. Let’s take a closer look at one of its flagship products: the Badaboom.

Badaboom [‘crash’ in French] is a wooden balance tree on which one or more children must place six animals, eight leaves and eight pieces of fruit. They must use care and accuracy to successfully balance the pieces without making the tree topple over. They must also think about the best place to put each piece so the tilting tree stays upright. The game gets children thinking and teaches them about cause and effect. It also develops their dexterity and patience in a fun way because when the tree tilts, it’s a laugh a minute!

Charlotte, product manager at Oxybul, had this to say:

“It’s the second year we’re selling this product and it’s very popular. It was created by Oxybul and is only available from our stores. It is completely in line with our values and has all the qualities Oxybul aspires to for its toys, i.e.:

  • Made from high-quality material (100% wood) and teaches important values.
  • Adaptable, with two different modes of play, depending on the age of the child.
  • Easy to play, not too long and has simple rules.
  • Features attractive colours and a stylish design, which our customers like. The Badaboom can even be used as a bedroom decoration!”

What our parent-testers thought

  • Sandrine: “The Badaboom balance tree is an attractive wooden toy that encourages children to spend time together and talk to each other. Clémence, Pierre-Henri and Armand (aged 6, 3 and 2) could all play the game together despite their age difference. It’s a lot of fun and also educational because you learn to concentrate and have to think about balance and placement.”
  • Sophie: “This balance game is the perfect choice for some family fun. It promises lots of laughs as well. Children quickly learn how to play and understand the consequences of their actions when the Badaboom topples over – crash! My son (Rémi, aged 4½) enjoyed looking for the best spots to put all the objects.”
  • Agnès: “The game looks attractive, is made from high-quality wood and is excellent for teaching children about balance and coordination. It’s a very good idea. My daughter Lison (aged 3) really enjoyed it. She laughed a lot when the pieces fell off, she moved the objects around carefully and she kept asking to play it. So we’ve given it 10/10.”
