Whether or not you have kids of your own, you probably have at least one little one to buy presents for this holiday season. Here are our top picks for toys that will promote gross motor development.
Gross motor development is the ability to use bigger movements, such as jumping, kicking, running, hopping-basically using the large muscles in the arms, legs, torso, and feet.

Crocodile Hop Floor Game-This is a fun gross motor game that engages minds and muscles! Teaches colors, shapes, counting, problem solving, and following simple directions.
Monster Feet– These are so fun! These monster feet raise your child 4.75 inches in height and requires them to use their arms to pull the nylon cords to keep them walking. Great for indoor or outdoor play!
