Little Elephant

Colour LIGHT BLUE

Wow! The whimsical look of the Little Elephant is a play attractor. And it rocks! Rocking is a thrilling activity that attracts young children immensely. Rocking with standing is not only fun, but helps to build physical and cognitive skills. The rocking movements of the Little Elephant respond to the child's own forward and backward movements. This takes coordination and it develops spatial awareness and a sense of balance. These are fundamental motor skills that help the child move confidently as well as sit still on a chair. The trunk stability is trained, supporting that. The responsive movements help children to be aware of cause and effect: When they move their body, it has an impact. This builds a fundament for understanding logical thinking. The red sphere on the Elephant's ear adds to that when the child moves it up and down the groove.

Play Value

Play value is the value gained from play, the value that makes the child “want” or developmentally “need” to undertake the activity and thus gives the play item holding power. Play value can be described very precisely in developmental terms, looking into the human physical, cognitive, social and emotional developmental stages.
