The Palmar Block

The palmar grasp block is to be given to children as early as 8 months. It is considered a type of first puzzle for the child. This material aids the child in developing the palmar grasp (the whole hand grasp). As the child learns that the cylinder should be placed back into the base, he/she uses the palmar grasp to grab onto it and pull it out, then attempts to place back into the hole. This item builds concentration and fine motor skills. These blocks are made of solid wood and sealed with a beeswax/oil sealant so they are totally non-toxic.

The dimensions are:
2.5''L X 1.75''W

Made of ash with a maple rod.
