Pincer Grasp Cylinder Block

The Pincer Grasp Cylinder Block is presented after your child has mastered the use of the Palmer Grasp Block. The knob is turned out of the cylinder. This means that there is no need for glue and the knob can never come loose. 

The knob encourages the use of the pincer grasp. This is when your child grips the knob between the thumb and the first two fingers. The development of the pincer grasp features prominently in the Montessori approach, as it prepares the hand very well to be able to hold and control a pencil later on. 

Turned by hand, from various Native Australian Timbers. Comes in an unsealed state. May be protected by sealing with a coat of olive oil, or beeswax polish.
