What It Is
One way to help fine tune gross motor skills is with a push toy. The Little Tikes Cozy Shopping Cart has a wide and sturdy base making it a good choice. The car part of the cart is too small to have a child sit in it, but it can hold a stuffed animal or doll. If your child is just learning to walk and this toy pushes too fast for him/her, you can put a large bag of rice (3—5lbs) in the car to help weigh it down and add resistance. This particularly helps younger kids and those with hypotonia (low muscle tone) in their lower extremities.
