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!"

Play Tip PLAY Tip

Learning how to catch a ball can be as easy as 1 2 3!

Catching a ball can be harder then it looks! Catching balls develops good shoulder stability and torso stability. You can help make the process easier by offering the right balls in the right order. Here is a three step process to try: 1. First start with a sturdy balloon, a punching balloon without the elastic is ideal. It can be easier to start in a sitting position about 2-3 feet away. 2. Next, try with a light high friction ball. The 9 and 15 inch Yadda balls are ideal. ,3. In the final step, stand or sit a little further apart and bounce the Yadda ball to the child. The bounce gives the child a little extra time to catch the ball. Note: For children with latex allergies, balloons contain latex but the Yadda balls are latex free.
