Skwish Classic

Note: Review only, product no longer for sale.

Finally, a toy that has no wrong-side-up!

An ingenious toy of dowels, beads, bells and strong elastic cord. Exceptionally light and "grabbable" from any angle. "Skwish" it flat and it bounces right back. Colourful clacking beads slide along the dowels. Helps develop motor skills, stimulates visually and encourages exploration. (Awards: Parents Choice Honour, National Parenting Pub. Award...) Size: 6".

Play Tip!

You can't keep a good Skwish down! Encourage your child to press a Skwish flat. You say "Down" with a falling voice. When they let go and the Skwish bounces say "up!"
