The Mars Rover’s rocking movements simulate a bumpy ride across the surface of the moon! The space theme and colours inspire dramatic play. The manipulative gear shifts and play spheres add to the play duration. The Mars Rover rocks on three solid springs and reflects the movements of the children. The seating is ample, with two in the drivers seat and some in the back, all supporting social play and negotiation of turn-taking. Rocking with friends is highly attractive and will inspire children to come back again and again. The rocking movements train the arm and leg muscles, pushing and pulling the Mars Rover into movement. Additionally, rocking trains the children’s sense of balance. This is a fundamental skill which helps the child navigate the world confidently and securely.
