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.
Caring for Your Wooden Toys
Wooden toys are beautiful and durable. Toys made of natural materials bring your little one a little closer to the nature by nourishing the child’s senses.
Wood has natural anti-bacterial properties, so keeping them clean is simple and you can even get your kids involved in the process. Here are some tips that can come handy while taking care of the wooden toys –
Wooden toys can be wiped with a dry cloth for daily maintenance and cleaning.
No Soaking. Never submerge wooden toys in the water; to clean or otherwise. The wood can soak up the water which can gradually lead to cracks.
Instead, a slightly damp cloth or sponge can be used to remove dirt or dust and then the toy should be air dried.
While drying the toys,do not leave them in a direct sunlight. Sunlight can cause the colours to fade and long exposure to the sunlight and air might damage the wood.
Every once in a while, you may want to moisturize wooden toys when it starts to look dry or dull. Coconut oil or olive oil can be applied sparingly with a washcloth. Then let it dry.
