The Montessori grip balls are wonderful developmental toys for babies who just begin grasping with both hands (starting at 3-4 months old). The many "handles" of the ball help the child build dexterity and coordination. Plus, the grip ball rolls a very short distance if dropped, thus eliminating the frustration of a ball that rolls hopelessly out of reach. It does roll enough to encourage the not-yet-crawling child to scoot over and grasp it again. It can also be used as a hanging toy by fastening it with a piece of elastic or ribbon.
The wooden teether will come in handy by the same time, as most babies begin teething by then.
A carry bag is included for those outings at the park.
Diameter of the ball: about 12.5 cm. The dimension may slightly vary from a ball to another.
Handcrafted in a house without smoke or pets.
100% cotton or wood. Hand or machine wash at 30 degrees. No tumble dry.
