The Racer with its whimsical rodeo look attracts toddlers for a rides again and again. Apart from its appealing shapes, the Racer offers tactile variation with its rubber hand holds and smooth body. Tactile richness is a main motivator, especially in younger children. It supports their understanding of material characteristics such as weight, smoothness, temperature and flexibility. The slightly sloped seat provides a seating destination that ensures hours, years and decades of fun. The soothing, rocking movement of the Racer trains the sense of balance and the spatial awareness. These are both crucial for body confidence, e.g. fall prevention. A well developed sense of balance is fundamental for the ability to sit still and concentrate. The Racer offers children more than a mere fun ride.
