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 both hands.
The Montessori Rolling Ball Cylinder is a perfect toy that can be offered to your child to improve his/her grasping skills. Your child will love the way the bright coloured ball rolls when he/she grasps the toy and transfers it from one hand to the other.
The rattle can also be used to encourage the child to move forward by placing it nearby, as they will love crawling to this toy, and chasing it as it rolls away improving their tracking skills.
This rattle helps the child develop gross motor skills as well as stimulates the sense of touch, sight, and hearing in infants.
- 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.
