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.

Play Tip PLAY Tip

Teaching switch use to new switch-users!

Teach a new switch user about cause-and-effect by starting with an attractive switch that gives fun feedback itself. Switches that vibrate or play music are reinforcing all by themselves. Good examples are the Musical Bright Plate Switch and the Vibrating Mirror Plate Switch. Once the child understands that their action causes the effect, then you could attach a toy, Mini Fan, AM/FM Radio, Vibrating Pillow, or Tape Player to the switch. The child will soon learn that their touch has a real impact on the world around them!
