Simple toys are best. This handmade hanging toy will offer your baby something to focus her energies on as she develops her abilities of grasping and batting, causing the bell the ring each time she makes contact and thus encouraging her to continue her exploration. Position her so that her feet come into contact with the bell, and watch her little kicking legs go to town!

The shiny bell and contrasting ribbon will catch her eye and the sound she makes when she touches the bell will tell her that the movements she is making are having an impact on her environment. Even as a baby, she is empowered as she discovers that her actions make a difference and can cause an impact on her surroundings

The bell, small enough for the baby’s hand to grasp, is suspended from a ribbon with a tab of elastic allowing it to have some give when grasped and pulled. The metal D-ring allows for easy hanging.

This is one of the materials created by students on the AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) Assistants to Infancy course.
