Rocking and riding are foundational to walking. Each phase of movement in a child's life is essential for development of motor skills. From laying on their back with extended limbs, to scooting and crawling across the floor, your child is on their way to walking!
When kids start climbing, be prepared with the Rock and Ride Rocking Horse from Hape to help them move into the next developmental stage—balance. Rocking toys emphasize coordination and balance as well as build arm and leg strength.
Kids can gradually gain confidence and understanding of their bodies. This rocking horse also provides a foundation for imaginative play. Your child will be off and running (and riding) in no time!
