With this red Gonge Spinning Top children can play indoors, outdoors and even (under supervision) in the pool. This top can accomodate 1 or 2 children (aged 3 - 12 yrs) and allows them to spin, sway side to side, or use it as a balance tool. The giant top develops physical coordination while children are having great fun. It develops their motor skills and body awareness and can even be used as a therapeutic tool.
Spinning in this Gonge® Top wakes children up and makes them more alert. This means that this cone can be a useful tool at the moment that the brain’s alertness falls. This top requires them to be alert and attentive. It can be helpful as a shortcut to aid the shift from computer games to homework for instance. It avoids conflict when used as a break between different kind of activities. Spinning in the top can be an antidote for more passive activities like watching television or computer gaming.
The top activates many muscle groups, especially those in the arms, back, neck, and abdomen. Children will swiftly learn to gain more and more control, and will soon be spinning and wobbling around in all directions. Therefore it is an ideal tool for working with particular muscle groups since it can target -very effectively- specific problem areas.
Stimulation of the senses is important for the child to become good at keeping their balance while still or moving. Simultaneously, children are able to use muscle tension to accomplish correct and coordinated movement. The vestibular sense specifically helps to keep our heads steady and still. For children it is crucial in playing and learning. The Gonge giant spinning top is the ultimate tool to accomplish all of this.
