Skwish tensegrity toy

Skwish is a postmodern take on the classic rattle and winner of numerous awards for its ingeniously simple design. Wooden rods are attached with an elastic string, providing hours of entertainment while developing logical reasoning, fine motor skill, eye-hand coordination, and teaching cause-and-effect.

This tensegrity structure was invented by Kenneth Snelson and developed into a toy by Tom Flemons. The term tensegrity was coined by visionary inventor Buckminster Fuller to describe a structure that combines compression and tension to create structural integrity.
