Springy, rebounding elastic strung between wooden teething rods makes the Skwish a classic multi-sensory activity toy which encourages the development of important gross motor skills such as grasping and reaching. Skwish has been an award-winning favorite of both babies and parents for over 30 years. It "Skwishes" and returns to its original shape, with beads that slide and rattle. Made from renewable rubberwood and finished with a water-based, non-toxic paint.

Activities and Outcomes
Babies, toddlers and young children playfully engage with a collection of multi-sensory activity toys and books, play sets, finger puppets, rattles and teethers. A variety of colorful, high-contrast patterns and textured shapes support early multi-sensory development, gross motor skills, image recognition, dexterity and beginner reading.

Why we like Manhattan Toy:
- Thoughtful design with high-quality materials

- Bold pictures with sharp boundaries for babies’ undeveloped visual pathways

At Manhattan Toy, they know that playtime is one of the most fundamental parts of childhood development. Year after year, the company strives to stretch its creative skills to create unique, high quality toys to expand little ones' imaginations and creative play.

The Manhattan Toy team makes frequent factory visits to ensure quality and safety standards are consistently met. All its toys are thoroughly tested to the most exacting U.S. and international standards. The company uses thoroughly tested, water-based paints and wood from sustainable forests for its wood toys.

Before Francis Goldwyn, the famous grandson of Hollywood studio mogul Samuel Goldwyn, founded Manhattan Toy, he left Hollywood to become a New York accountant! In 1978, his entrepreneurial spirit led him to start a toy company featuring a style of intentionally under-stuffed plush toys, which he eventually sold. The new owners moved the company to Minneapolis, where it continues to thrive and grow.

Headquarters located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
