High Impact Skwish

Note: Review only, product no longer for sale.

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".
