Encourage independent exploration but if necessary demonstrate the character’s moving, clicking parts and show your little one how the driver fits into his quad bike
Show your baby that the toy moves and encourage your little one to push it along the ground and crawl after it.
Show your baby how to pull back the vehicle and watch it race across the floor. Encourage movement to retrieve it
Show your child how to place the driver in the quad bike. Encourage them to do it by themselves and to either push the toy along the floor, or pull back to make it spring into action. Encourage your toddler to chase after it.
Talk with your older child about the quad bike – What does it do? Where would you see one? Who might use one?
Relate the toy to pictures or real go-karts and show your infant the similarities between the two
Talk about the appearance of the quad bike and its driver – e.g. what colour it is, how many wheels has it got? Introduce younger children to new language such as steering wheel, headlights, hooter.
Encourage your child to use his or her imagination to play. Let your child take the lead but help with ideas if necessary.
