Skwish from Manhattan Toy is a 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 may not turn every baby into a mathematical genius, but every baby can joyfully benefit from its unique developmental features. Its natural finish and 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. The spatial and tactile elements have been shown to be helpful to those on the Autism spectrum. Skwish is carefully constructed of sustainable wood and features a smooth, un-dyed exterior surface. For over 30 years, Manhattan Toy has been making award-winning, high quality, visually appealing toys for babies, toddlers and kids. Manhattan Toy offers more than 500 exclusive, original product designs distributed and sold worldwide through specialty retail stores, catalogs and websites. All of our products, from the newest concepts to our time-tested classics, are innovatively designed to inspire imaginative play and delight our customers.
