Babies can grasp an object from the moment they are born. This is an involuntary movement called the “grasping reflex”. But, by the time the little ones are three months or four months old, they’ll be actively trying to grasp things with better-coordinated movements. The Montessori inspired baby grasping beads can be introduced around 3 months when your little one has just begun grasping. The perfect shape of this simple toy makes the grasping easy for the baby.
The grasping beads encourage the development of more voluntary movements and coordination in your little one as he transfers it from one hand to another.
It is made out of 4 wooden beads and secured with a cotton rope, knotted at the ends and between each bead, to give stability.
It also helps in improving the baby’s hand-eye coordination, concentration, grasp, hand and wrist movement, and exploring skills.
Babies enjoy teething on it as well.
- During its lifetime, a tree is subjected to many natural forces that cause variations in wood grain, color, knots, splits, and stains. These variations are not defects. They enhance the beauty of the wood and add to the characteristic of the handcrafted toys making each toy unique.
- As with any baby toy or accessory, please use only under adult supervision.
- Always inspect for damage prior to use.
