This 3-in-1 infant toy is a cleverly designed clutching and teething toy. Between four and eight months babies learn to grasp and clutch which take developing eye-hand coordination. This colorful clutching toy has been designed for baby's little hands to hold. By one year, infants should be able to pick-up clutching toys and also let go of their grasp.
Babies develop 20 teeth in the first three years, several in the first year. This colorful snake also functions as a safe teething toy. The rainbow-colored HABAform and beech wood pieces are threaded on an elastic band. This clutching and teething toy offers countless opportunities for gross motor skill development and hand-finger manipulation practice.
An eco-friendly toy, the beech wood is grown in sustainable forests. The HABAform is an alternative to plastic, made from organic materials. Developed in Southern Germany, it is made for HABA, specifically for clutching and teething toys, pacifier chains, and other baby toys.

Clutching toys help baby develop eye-hand coordination as well as fist control for grasping and letting go. At first, babies will hold the clutching toy, practicing a strong grasp reflex.
When placing a colorful clutching toy, just out of baby's reach, infants are more motivated to lift their head, learn to roll or squirm toward the toy. All of these developmental steps prepare a baby for crawling.
When adults hold and slowly move a colorful grasping toy, babies may visually track with their eyes, helping coordinate the eyes together as the toy moves.
This colorful snake has beech hardwood beads, making it a great baby teether as well as a clutch toy. Babies chew and gnaw on the wooden beads to help soothe their gums when cutting new teeth.
The rainbow parts can be twisted, turned and spun around, changing the shape and look of this toy, further developing baby's fine motor skills, engaging attention span.
Promotes dexterity, eye-hand coordination, and manipulation, as baby eventually learns to hold the color snake clutching toy in one hand and transfer it to the other hand.
