Toys for gross motor skills development are essential for any playroom or nursery and are important for developing the larger muscles in the body which is important for activities such as walking, jumping, climbing etc.
Giving children the opportunity to climb, balance, explore and take risks sets them up for valuable life skills while at the same time developing their physical strength and coordination.
The use of toys for gross motor skills gives children the ability to complete more complex tasks in future activities and the more these skills are practised, the more advanced the skills can become later in life.
