Our Skwish Classic fascinates babies with its twist web of rods, strings and beads. Babies squeeze and stretch Skwish and watch in amazement as it slowly pops back up to its original shape.

As with our other Skwish products, Skwish Classic is made form replenishable rubberwood with a water based, non-toxic finish. Skwish offers visual stimulation and helps develop a baby's motor skills. This classic wooden toy has won the hearts of babies and parents everywhere, as well as the Parenting Choice Classic Award for its ingenious yet simple design.

When Elise was born, we got the family skwish, which has been in the family for over eight years now, as a welcome present. Although it has been used by 3 kids before her, it still looks and works as new. She enjoys it tremendously, it is one of her favourites. From the first weeks when it was lying beside her in her crib because she liked to watch the colours until today: now she's 6 months and the fun thing about skwish is that it is so easy to grab for her little hands. We like it as well, because it is nicely made and fun to handle, so when she isn't playing, we sometimes play with it. It will certainly be used for a long time, and after Elise her siblings or cousins will continue to enjoy this fabulous toy!

Got this for my son (just over 6 months and the time of writing this review), when he was about 3 months old. It's been one of his favourites since that time. We also got the Manhattan Winkel rattle at the same time, which I'll review shortly, but he prefers this. It definitely encourages holding - different textures in terms of the beads and the "lines" holding them together (these have a softish covering, but are firmer than I expected) and he's always trying to stick the wooden balls at the ends into his mouth, and the colours are definitely engaging for him - and it's quite a "3D" toy for him. The wooden "pipes" in the middle, have larger sliding beads on them, and these make a nice "whooshing" or "whistling" sound when my son flaps the toy up and down which was an unexpected bonus really.
There's not been any real negatives to it, my son has always been a bit on the small side, so I probably got it for him too early when he was at 3 months, I think its probably better when baby is sitting up (and less chance of them whacking themselves in the face with it when they do their horizontal star jumps!) Excellent toy overall - I'm pretty impressed with the quality of Manhattan Toys so far.

Works particularly well for my disabled son who is working on his grasp - doesn't immediately fall out of his hand if he loosens his grip.

The Skwish is just wonderful, bright and light, easy for a 4 month old to hold and pass between hands, I even love the sound that the little wooden beads made sliding around. Something akin to a very quiet wooden wind chime. Baby even uses it with her feet, we thread soft toys through it, we roll it but it doesn't go too far which makes it ideal for baby to start reaching for. Encouraging learning to roll and tummy time. It gets chewed but because of the elastics cannot go far into the mouth. The person who designed this is a genius.
Obviously a classic baby toy. So much to enjoy and discover when using it.

A great toy for young babies.
○ Before our baby could reach out or hold things rolling this around slowly in front of him was very exciting (for him!).
○ As he learnt to reach out and grab this was the easiest thing to keep hold of as he could grab the strings or wood and it was easy to keep hold of.
○ He learnt that only the ends could be chewed on so he learnt to manipulate it to get the ends in his mouth. The design means that he can't get more than the tips in to chew.

All round a great toy and I'll be buying it as a present for other people's babies.

A lovely gift or toy for your baby. My little girl is 4 months old and reaching and grabbing things, another friend had one of these and thought we would get one. She loves it, there are so many places to grab hold and put in her mouth, it makes noise whenever it is turned and the moveable knots keep her attention as she plays with it. Even when it is thrown across the room through excitement it just bounces. I don't leave home without it, it goes in the car or pram and keeps her entertained.
Would definitely recommend and will be buying as a gift for my pregnant friends!

I got the 'Skwish' for our baby several months ago when he was learning to reach out and try to grab things. It was great because there were lots of opportunities for him to succeed in getting a grip--on the many elastic cords and wooden bars--and then it made a pleasant rattle sounds if he managed to hang on long enough to bang it around. Several months on, he still like to bang it around and we still find the sound pleasant. He hasn't discovered the 'skwish-ing' aspect of it yet, but I expect he'll enjoy that too. If so, I'll increase my stars to *5*.
