Physical Therapist approved: holiday gift idea for toddlers

Jessica Cornman DPT, physical therapist at the Pineville office of Child and Family Development, is getting ready for the holiday season now!  

She has a favorite to recommend for toddlers that she considers an all-around excellent developmental toy.  

Rody the Horse Child’s Bounce and Ride



  • promotes postural strength
  • promotes the development of righting reactions
  • strengthens lower extremity coordination (bouncing) 
  • builds core strength 
  • enhances proprioception
  • and it’s just plain fun! 

Rody has been around for a long time and is available at local stores and online sites.
