Hippity hop Promotes Early Childhood Development Research has shown that physical play can promote language development, coordination, and cognitive skills. These activities can have long lasting, positive benefits for your child. The hippity hop was developed with childhood development in mind. The handle is textured and easy to grip to improve stability.
Total Body Strengthening While jumping, the child is actively engaging and strengthening core, abdominal, major leg, and major arm muscles. Many of these muscles are used by the child to sit upright against gravity, focus, learn, play, and interact with others. They are often targeted for strengthening by educators, physical and occupational therapists, and other health professionals, as research has shown that when children are strong in these areas, it becomes easier for them to sit and attend to a variety of physical and cognitive tasks.
Proprioceptive Input These exercises also provide the child with proprioceptive input, which can assist in increasing a child's body and spatial awareness. A child may be craving proprioceptive input if they have a tendency to crash into objects, overstuff their mouth with food, color or write with too much force, or have difficulty motor planning new tasks.
