The Box with Knitted ball invites the child to use their fingers to push the ball through the hole while strengthening their fine motor skills, developing hand-eye coordination and exploring cause and effect. Learning to open and close the drawer is a practical skill that they will use throughout their lifetime and develops independence. The drawer does not come all the way out.
This material also develops a child’s understanding of object permanence - knowing that just because they can no longer see something, does not mean that it has disappeared. Rather, they will know to open drawer to find the ball hiding inside.
This allows them to gain a better understanding of how things may disappear and reappear throughout their daily lives.
