Ball and Cup
The Montessori ball and cup is a classic Montessori material aimed at promoting hand-eye coordination in the infant. Babies who are working on this skill will concentrate on removing the ball and replacing in its place repeatedly. This material is meant to be offered from about 8-9 months onward. It is great practice for babies in using both hands at once: baby will hold onto the cup in one hand and the ball in the other.
Material: Birch wood
Dimensions: Cup: 2 inches tall x 2.25 Diameter. Ball: 1.75 inches (to ensure no choking hazard).
Care: NEVER submerge or rinse these toys in water. Doing so will raise the grain of the wood and roughen it. Instead, wipe with a slightly damp cloth to clean.
