Crossing kitchen floor alone.    Although he is not able to detect the opening in the gate, he is able to walk about the kitchen without clinging to the kitchen cabinets. He gets an apple, hey that's what you do in a kitchen, right?

Matias' play crosses open space.   Matias is playing with a riding truck. He drags it around the living room. He drags it and in doing so, crosses open space and finds new objects to explore.
