The palmar grasp block is to be given to children as early as 8 months. The pincer block should be offered at around 9 months.Sensory and auditory feedback Note:
Material Advantage: Hand made product, environment friendly. 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 he/she attempts to place it back into the hole.
The pincer grasp develops after the child is purposefully using the palmar grasp., when you begin to notice the child working hard to grasp objects with the thumb and forefinger.
Pro tip: Place the set on a low shelf or stool and watch your baby immerse herself in the wonder of purposeful play.
Benefits: The repetition of this builds concentration and fine motor skills.
Children love to practice this grasp, and this material is perfect for helping them perfect it.
