After spying this Sqwish in another little girl's toy box, I knew I was going to brave another store.
Manhattan Toys makes these elastic-connected parallel rods with sliding beads. We bought ours at Land of Nod. About the size of a softball, it resembles more of a piece of artwork than a chew toy. The beads of this delightful wooden toy even make a very soothing sound as my little Mig shakes her pudgy hand.
I can't say that this is this is my daughter's favorite toy out of the toy boy, but it sure is mine. Go head, go to the store.
