Babies like Winkel and its companion Color Burst. While appealing bright colors and a unique shape arouse interest, soft, pliable loops literally put the ball into play. That’s because those loops are easy to grasp. Successful play depends upon a child being able to take hold and explore a toy. Moreover reaching, gripping, and releasing are all motor skills we all use everyday.
Babies are sensory creatures. Texture and taste are as important as sight and sound. Beads inside the center cube rattle softly when the baby shakes Winkel. Gradually babies realize that the sound occurs only in response to their actions. That understanding of cause and effect marks an aha! moment for babies.
In addition to touching anything that comes within reach, babies put everything in their mouths. Smooth loops not only hold up to gnawing but also help relieve teething pain. Simply pop in the refrigerator and chill. Measures 5″L x 4″W x 3 1/2″H.
