Playing with toys upside down

Recently my son started playing with his big toys upside down is this normal? He loves cars it feels like he wants to play with his cars on the bottom of the surface( flat )of his big toys just a bit concerned. Help?????

    That is strange did you ask him why he does it, but every kid is strange in a different way. My kid picks his nose licks the booger and wipes it on a tissue

    He may just be experimenting, seeing what happens if he plays like that. I noticed my 21 month old used to do silly things like that and when I would tell her “this toy plays like this!” She would do it even more probably because I wanted her to do it the right way

    Are there other things he does that seem a little off? If not, I’m sure it’s part of him exploring a new way to play. My first used to play with cars upside down and spin the wheels over and over. He also did a handful of other strange things though. He was diagnosed with ASD not too long ago, at age 3.

    One of the first thing my daughter does when she gets a new toy is turn it over to see how it’s put together...she’s like that with every toy, even when she was little and played with her sit to stand walker, she always wants to see how it’s put together...now whether it’s a new truck or a little keyboard or even one of her dolls (dolls she checks how arms and legs connect to the body and whether the head turns, eyes open, etc), it happens every time. She usually returns to playing with it right side up. My husband refers to it as ‘checking under the hood.’ Lolol.

    It’s totally normal to go through an upside down phase and not weird at all. They are learning and they are checking out different perspectives.
