Children and Toddlers and being upside down

Most Children love doing gymnastics or swinging on a swing with there head upside down or some kids enjoy hanging upside down from monkey bars or trees and whenever you go to a park you most often see children doing cartwheels and handstands. Kids also love doing headstands on sofas. Toddlers love it when Mommy or Daddy holds them upside down and tickles them But why? What's so great about being upside down?

Does your child like being upside down?

Maybe it's the change in perspective. I know when I
lay on the floor and look up at the ceiling I get a funny
sense like I'm trying to see the ceiling as if it's the floor.
And in movies, isn't the camera often changing your
perspective or angle at which you view the people or
I recall the children liking to stoop over and look back
between their legs; seeing things upside down and
backwards (behind them).
I'm guessing it's fun and also helps their vision centers
perfect the incredibly sophisticated eye movements and
coordination with the brain's vision centers that allow

Inversion has many benefits. It feels funny, makes people smile and feels funny. Apart from giving people a different perspective, inversion is also beneficial to your health. It improves fitness, reduces strain and enhances brain function.

My daughter loves it when she is upside down especially when her daddy does it to her. If not, she would stand then go down on her hands and peek in between her thighs. Maybe its because of their curiosity of the surrounding being upside down. I always take these types of instances to play with her to enhance her social interaction and creativity and most especially her wonder.
