Imbucare Object Permenance Box

The imbucare box encourages the child to use a pincer or palmer grasp, as well as refines hand-eye coordination and fine-motor skills.

This activity 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 the Imbucare Box to find the ball hiding inside.

This allows them to gain a better understanding of how things may disappear and rappear throughout their daily lives.
