Description

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 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. 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 non-toxic, water based finish. Since 1979, Manhattan Toy has been making award-winning, high quality, educational toys for your baby, toddler or kid. From infant toys and baby toys to sensory development toys, our goal is to provide the safest and best toys available. All of our products, from the newest concepts to our time-tested classics, are innovatively designed to inspire imaginative play and are routinely safety tested to pass strict CPSC, ASTM, EN71 and Health Canada safety standards.

Q: Has this toy been tested to make sure that the wooden balls do not come off the elastic. I am afraid my baby well pull it off into his mouth

submitted by Oaklen - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello Oaklen, the 100% solid rubberwood components of this toy have the balls on the ends fused to the dowel rods with a high-tension epoxy glue. It is so strong, that the wood would essentially have to break for these pieces to come apart. One of these important and reassuring tests the Skwish passes is the “Impact Test: Drop Test,” which states “no hazards shall result when the sample is subjected to the applicable impact as determined by age grade.” You may take comfort in knowing that Manhattan Toy has procedural oversight to ensure our products meet or exceed the arduous CPSIA regulations for children’s toys, which requires CPSC-approved third-party accredited laboratory testing. Thought I would update you with a more exacting reason. Appreciate your inquiry.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I saw this as a young adult and thought it looked like a great coffee table conversation piece. I put it on my list of things to get one day when I had a baby. It was probably the 1st thing I bought then and boy did all of my kiddos love it! It bounces just enough. The colors draw you in. It has both a retro & a space age appeal. It makes a slight noise but nothing annoying or startling. There is nothing that could improve this toy! It was love at first sight! I plan to save it for my grandbabies!

I bought this for my now 30 year old daughter who passed it on to my 28 year old son. It gave them so much enjoyment. Everyone who has a baby gets a Skwish from me as a gift.

This is an awesome toy - my son uses it to make sounds and as a teether. He enjoys squishing it as well. It's well made, great colors. Got one for my son and gifted a second one!

My 4 month old loves to stare at this toy for even a half hour during church service because it’s colorful, interesting, and makes a rattle sound when I gently shake it, which they love at this age. Kept him and another 3.5 month old baby sitting next to us occupied for a while just staring haha

Joss - 1 year ago
I bought this as sort of an impulse. We were visiting my parents and I wanted my baby to have toys at Grandma and Grandpa’s place so bought this. Wow! She really took to this. We have bought her many things for her to play with and develop from but out of all of them this thing has all of her attention. It’s the only thing she crawls to. Everything else she just waits for us to give it to her, but this is something she scoots herself towards and grabs it and plays with it. It’s so endearing. I’m thankful for these reviews that mention safety issues. I will watch for that but I haven’t seen anything so far on my end. I also felt the toy with my hands before giving it to her because wood does make me nervous but I didn’t see or feel any splinters or problems. The toy is well-covered in the paint and is smooth, no bumps, ridges, chips, nothing. Thank you for making this toy that my baby girl loves so much

Don’t know why this is recommended for newborn +. It is not appropriate for my 6 month old. He does not have full self control of his arms and found him hitting himself in the face over and over with the hard wood. 10/10 DONT recommend for infants.
