12 soft yarn balls approximately 2" in diameter — two balls each in red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. One of each color pair has a string, the other does not. The string (approx. 6 inches long) has a loop on one end so that they can be dangled. It is introduced while the child is still an infant and is used for children ages 18+ mos (post teething) with adult participation. The balls come packed in a sturdy, wood slide-top storage box.
