Tummy tickling thrills of rocking back and forth. The Little Duckling is a play attractor amongst young children. Besides the thrilling feeling of rocking, this springer helps build physical and cognitive skills as well. The rocking of the Little Duckling responds to the childs own forward and backward movements. This takes coordination and it develops spatial awareness and a sense of balance. The responsive movements also help children to be aware of cause and effect: When they move their body, it has an impact on the Little Duckling. This understanding widens the infant's world and builds a fundament for understanding logical thinking.
