Why are children fascinated with steps?I have observed this interesting thing - when passing by a shop with a step or two out front, or even just a flat jut-out space from the glass door, a passing child will want to walk on it. I have noticed this more so with little girls. The kid will practically pull and pull at the hand of the person who is holding her hand, inch her way towards the shop and, with a little hop or a jump, get on the step, walk across it & get off at the end of it. It does not matter if that space is narrow and extremely short, maybe even a walk of just two footsteps. She will still want to get on it!
As such, the kids are not interested in the shop's window display or what is inside. They simply want to walk across that space jutting out outside the door or the steps leading to it. What do you think is so attractive about steps for little children?
