Ride on Toys
Ride on toys are great for toddlers and small children up to the age of around 7 years old, the benefit of these wooden ride on toys is that they help develop the skills needed for balance and coordination. When you child becomes confident to ride for example a 2 wheeler bicycle then you would have helped the child’s skills develop by starting off early with the wooden ride on toys.
The earlier you try to develop these fundamental skills of balance and coordination the better, as many of the youngsters today are not getting the benefit due to the huge increase of video games and television. A child should be able to develop their skills naturally through play and ride on toys help with this development.
