The new Noisy Ball from Eeboo is more than just a ball — which already makes children happy and gets them moving. This “traditional folk form” is improved on with built-in gaps that are perfect for little fingers searching for a good grip. The Noisy Ball lives up to its name by making satisfying sounds. It crinkles and squeaks when squeezed, and gently jingles when shaken or rolled across the floor. The soft, velour ball — covered in rich, stimulating colors (such as royal blue, spring green, and bright red) — is even machine washable. Recommended for babies and toddlers, this 5-inch-wide toy will be an instant favorite.
