Available in vibrant colorful variation, the Skwish Color Burst is based on the Skwish from Manhattan Toy, the time-honored classic, instantly recognizable, an intriguing blend of ingenious design and developmental function. The geometrical shape and interconnecting wooden dowels have long piqued the curiosity of adults – imagine how it must appear to a baby as they begin to experience the world around them? Skwish has fascinated babies and parents alike for over 30 years. Bright, complementary colors and its one of a kind shape instantly capture baby’s attention. The lightweight wooden dowels, smooth finish, and elastic ties make it easy for little hands to grab and hold. Babies will love “Skwishing” it down and watching it return to its original shape – Skwish is a perfect clutching toy for developing gross motor skills. The beads slide back and forth along the dowels when shaken, producing a very pleasing rattle and allowing baby to explore sound and learn cause and effect.
