Children love putting this beautiful soft knitted ball inside the box over and over.
Posting objects into boxes is a natural tendency for young children.
This activity gives the child practice with hand-eye co-ordination as the soft ball is pushed through the hole.
This box provides an infant with experiences of object permanence. This material develops hand-eye coordination and indirectly allows the child to experience object permanence. It practices precise hand movements while sending information to the brain as well as develops hand, wrist and finger control - also known as "refined hand movements". With repeated use, the child learns how it feels to succeed when he has achieved a goal on his own.
A square wooden board with 4 pegs that holds 4 balls of the same size. Placing the balls on the pegs is a challenging task for the infant. As the pegs seem to 'disappear' in the balls, the child experiences that the centre hole in the ball disappears too, and the shape becomes whole.
