Benefits of ride on toys for your child
Ride on toys help develop children’s gross and fine motor skills. When they grasp the steering wheel to move their toy on rough or smooth ground as well as push their legs, they are mastering the art of spatial awareness and motion. These types of toys also encourage physical activity and exercise, as they require the strengthening of the muscles of the legs.
One of the most important skills a child can learn on a bicycle or scooter is their sense of balance. Ease them onto a beginner’s trike, and then in no time your child will be off the training wheels and onto the ‘big kids’ bikes!
As many ride on toys are built to be played by one child at a time, they help to foster independent play. On the other hand, other ride on toys require at least two children playing, so others encourage group play.
Choosing a radio flyer toy
It is important to choose a ride-on toy that is appropriate for your child’s developmental age. If your child is having difficulty walking straight, then they may not be ready to take on a toy that requires balance. Each ride-on toy has a recommended age bracket, so if you follow the instructions, you should be fine.
For their next birthday or special event, treat your child to a Radio Flyer ride on toy, action figure or model building toy. Find all these great gift ideas and more online when you shop on eBay.
