Who is tapping?
That’s a hen! It pecks and taps, sways and moves about. Moves about? And where are its legs? This hen is quite unique. It was running so fast, its legs turned into wheels. It’s a roly-poly toy so it is hard to tip it over. Its physique helps it maintain balance. In its big tummy a gold(ish) egg is located in the very centre of mass, never allowing the hen to overturn. When a child pushes the hen, it moves forward swaying from side to side. The roly-poly imitates movements of real hens capturing a child’s imagination. As a result a child is introduced to animal world, takes interest in it, learns to appreciate it and notices the behaviours of animals. The whole body is involved while playing with the hen thus contributing to the development of gross motor skills.
