    What is the name of the green ball in the picture? Where can I get it to buy?

      Hi! I am not sure if it has a name. I believe we got them through a company like Oriental Trading or something like that, as cheap little prizes. The actual ball itself is not important. The point is to give the child something – a green ball like this, a cotton ball, anything small that fits into the side of the hand – to hold on to with their fourth and fifth fingers. If you give those back fingers a job then the child uses their pincer grip more effectively. Hope that helps!
