Quack Along Ducks by Tomy
This is a cause-effect toy that is fun for for both children who are walking and those who have a more limited range of motion. The ducks move easily with even the slightest tug on the string and waddle after the child quacking merrily! Strengths: Because the toy is so easily activated it is a great option for a child with limited gross motor abilities. Fine motor skills may also be challenged because the child needs to pick-up, grasp, and pull the string to make the toy work. Weaknesses: If a child has sound sensitivities the quacking can be a little scary and since there isn't an on/off switch on the toy every time the string is pulled the quacking starts.
