Imbucare - OBJECT PERMANENCE Box with TRAY and Ball

 

This simply but beautifully constructed Montessori wooden Ball Return Box offers purposeful, repetitive independent activity that will build self-confidence, self-esteem and increase concentration.

Suitable for babies as young as 8 months, this wooden box provides early childhood development in the areas of hand/eye co-ordination, hand strength, finger dexterity and object permanence. 'Object permanence' is used to describe a child's ability to know that objects continue to exist even though they can no longer be seen or heard, and it plays an important role in the theory of cognitive development.

A simple toy teaching essential skills.

How to present the toy using the Montessori method:

  1. Place the box on the floor in front of your baby and pick up the ball using your thumb and pointer finger. It's helpful to name the ball and be descriptive, for example 'round ball'
  2. Engage your child's interest with a single word instruction such as 'look' or 'watch'
  3. Hold the ball above the hole
  4. Drop it through the hole and repeat the circuit
  5. Now offer your baby a turn
