The Horse Springer is a fantastically inviting item that attracts and supports children's play relentlessly. The tummy tickling rocking sensation is a great movement response. Movement response is one of the greatest play sensations there are. Apart from the fun, this adds a feeling of control to the child's play. The responsive movement also trains the understanding of cause and effect in young children: that actions have an effect on the world. Rocking on the Horse trains the child's sense of balance and space as well as hand and arm muscles when holding tight and pushing their feet hard into the foot support. All of these basic motor skills and muscle training actions help train the child's bodily cognition, supporting important life skills such as being able to sit still on a chair or navigate traffic securely.
