What you need to know

More than a wonderful plaything, this tactile toy offers other benefits too

This squishy ball by Val Pierce is crying out to be explored, touched, tugged, twiddled with and cuddled – no two panels are the same! There are 12 hexagons, all with individual cute motifs, and 13 bright colours in the version pictured. It may look a little complicated, but it uses easy stitches, so just take it a step at a time and enjoy putting your brightly coloured DK ball ends to good use. Did you know that playing with a sensory ball not only encourages motor skills, but also helps to develop coordination, concentration, colour awareness and more? Maybe we should all have one!
