Bringing The Outdoors Inside Your Home

It’s cold, it’s rainy and you really don’t want to go out. But then your 5 year old starts fighting with his younger sibling and he’s taking every toy and object in his reach and starts throwing them around… basically, turning your house upside down. What do you do now?!?!?!  Your child needs some stimulation, a walk outdoors or just a change of scenery, but it’s COLD outside and you have absolutely no interest in going out!

That’s when it’s time to bring the benefits of the outdoors right into your living room! Think this sounds odd? Well just read on, it’s not odd at all!

The Playaway Toy Company has manufactured indoor swings and playground equipment where your child can enjoy the benefits of swinging all year round, rain or shine. Thanks to Playaway, your child can have time out or simply relax in a swinging motion, calming himself down and everyone around!

These Indoor Swings are also great for sensory challenged children. While swinging, sensory is in motion, sending electricity to the brain and helping your child develop. Additionally, they are great for balance and coordination as well as Gross Motor Skills and Physical Therapy. The benefits are seemingly endless…

Take for example the Indoor Net Swing. The net can easily stretch to fit any child and can be used in a prone or sitting position. It can also cradle and put pressure on the child’s sides so they feel safe and secure and it gives total body support. It’s simply perfect for swinging, lounging, or reading a book! Add to it the Study Board Attachment and your child can swing while doing his homework! Now, how cool is that? You can easily attach the Net Swing to the Support Bar from any doorway of your home and your’e all set! The door can even close while the Support Bar is up.

Good Motor Skills Promotes Good Social, Psychological And Intellectual Skills

Looking for ways to enhance your child’s gross motor skills? Here’s your answer!
Gross motor skills which involve the large muscles of the body enable a person to walk, kick, lift, balance, roll… Gross motor functions are connected with other areas such as fine motor skills. A person that has trouble with his gross motor skills will most likely have difficulty with writing. Additionally, a child with weak gross motor skills may have problems in school as well. The earlier you treat these problems, the easier it will be.

bObles, a manufacturing company of children’s toys was created to fill the void of quality furniture for children, which appealed to play, creativity and physical exercise . The great thing about the bObles products is that you can enhance your children’s motor skills while playing! They are so much fun to play with that your children will want to cooperate with what is asked of them. There are also endless amounts of ideas of what you can do with each product.

For example, the Tumbling Elephant can be used to: practice balance, it has a rocking function where the child is challenged while sitting, it’s great to lie on; flat on the stomach and back, and last but not least it is a great chair to sit on! Finding the many ways to interact with the pieces helps kids of all ages develop motor skills while igniting their imagination.

The Tumbling Whale challenges the core stability and it has a rocking function where the child is challenged and stimulated while sitting. Your child can tumble, roll, balance, seesaw, rock, jump and gain some bodily experience, which can serve as the foundation for further development.

The Tumbling Crocodile is the perfect baby starter set. It can be great for tummy time and at the same time it’s a great step stool in the bathroom! It can be used as a staircase, which enhances the strength and balance of the child. When used as a balance beam the child can practice eye foot coordination and the idea of boundaries to understand where something begins and ends, so you don’t lose balance or step off an edge and fall! When turned upside down you have an angled surface – the see saw function appears when the crocodile is placed on its back and the child can walk/lie on its entire straight surface. The crocodile is also amazing for tummy time – due to the soft material and elevated position most babies will even enjoy tummy time!
