Ride-on toys allow young children to move and imitate adults but also allow them to develop coordination skills. Genius Babies has many ride-on toys on different shapes, including standard riding toys shaped like airplanes, cars, and Thomas the Train. Wheely Bugs and Cows are newer riding toys shaped like insects or cows and are lightweight.
Plasma cars are an alternative to tricycles. Plasma cars come with a seat, steering wheel, and smaller wheels that use friction, gravity, and centrifugal force to move. Pedals and batteries are not needed.
Some toys encourage rocking and bouncing instead of forward movement. Rody Horses, blowup rubber horses in several colors, are inflatable toys in which children can rock and bounce around. For younger children, we have many traditional rocking horse-type toys, only the animal is made of a softer cloth. Also, instead of a horse, we have rocking creatures in dinosaur, caterpillar, duck, and other animal shapes.
