Little Duckling

Wow! The whimsical bird-look of the Little Duckling is a play attractor. And it rocks! Rocking is a thrilling activity that attracts young children immensely. It is not only fun, but helps to build physical and cognitive skills as well. The rocking movements of the Little Duckling 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 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.
