Mums Invention Helping Children to Walk

21 Apr 2014How awesome is this invention? When growing up I always tried to put my feet on my mum or dad’s feet so I could get the idea of how to walk and what it would be like to walk.

I think this idea is fantastic and big kudos to this mum, Debby Elnatan who came up with this idea.

It is known as the ‘Upsee Firefly’ and has given children who cannot walk the opportunity to play with siblings and friends like any other child.

I am on the look out for a giant who can attach me to a giant ‘Upsee Firefly’ and take me dancing, kicking a soccer ball and playing tennis. Please let me know if you see/know any giants!
