Attracts kid's attention!

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. Designed for young and children who have low vision or who are just attracted to high impact colors! White, red, and black beads and dowelling create high visual impact. Size: 6".

High Impact Skwish

Play Tip!

Children with small hands can wear a Skwish like a bracelet. Children shake their hands, making the beads and bells clack and ring. A good game for children with developing grasps.

This can often help a child who is having trouble eating textured food eat more normally.
