This simple ball is one of Ivan’s favorite toys. It’s squishy and rubbery and makes a neat noise when you shake it.

We bought this toy originally because it feels oh so weird when you touch it and we wanted to expose Ivan to different types of textures. He absolutely hated it at first, but eventually he got used to it and now loves it. He likes to take the strings and pull them until they snap back and make a fun sound. We call it the “pull and snap ball.”

If your child has light perception, you can get one with a light inside that makes it glow: Light Up Puffer Ball. If you want to see this toy in action, check out this video of Ivan playing with his pull and snap ball:
