Getting Crawling with the Wiggly Giggly!
Use the Wiggly Giggly to encourage a new crawler with special needs to move forward. Try rolling the Wiggly Giggly back and forth about 6-12 inches farther than the grasp of the child. The bright colours and engaging sounds will tempt the child to get mobile and push the ball for themselves! The Wiggly Giggly is one of the few balls that actively engage cause and effect beyond the simple rolling motion. Your child won't want to put this one down, But don't worry. The designers cleverly pitched the groan tubes to be engaging without being annoying!
