Infants love to play peekaboo for a reason! Watching their favorite face or toy disappear from view, only to reappear again a few moments later, is engaging because it naturally appeals to their developing understanding of object permanence. This is the ability to understand that objects still exist even when they are no longer visible. Mastery of this concept is one of an infant’s primary developmental accomplishments in the first year of life.

An object permanence box is a classic Montessori material that is introduced to infants once they can sit up independently, at approximately 8–12 months of age. This material aids in the child’s development of object permanence, while also honing their hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, focus, and concentration.

To use the object permanence box, an infant places a large wooden ball into a hole located on the top of the box. The ball momentarily disappears into the box, but then reappears as it rolls back out into a tray where it is then easily retrieved by the infant. A baby who is still actively developing an understanding of object permanence will often engage in long periods of repetition with this task until mastery is achieved.

Quality & Longevity: Our object permanence box is crafted of eco-friendly, durable hardwood, and coated with a child-safe lacquer for a smooth, beautiful, lasting finish.

Beautiful heirloom quality

I absolutely love this beautiful piece for our shelves! The wood is sturdy and the construction is solid. The stain is gorgeous and the whole thing has been coated to make it nice and smooth to the touch.

Great toy

Baby loves this toy and it is such good quality. At 6 months she enjoyed watching me drop the ball and she would teeth on the ball. At 8 months she started attempting to drop the ball in and learned how to roll the ball back and forth with me. I would put play silks in it and she would pull them out like the popular tissue box toy. At 10 months she has finally learned how to drop the ball in. We also like to put her animal toys in it and watch them disappear and reappear. She loves this toy and I love that we’ve found multiple ways to play with it and have already gotten 4 full months of use out of it. The quality is incredible, this is a toy that our future babies will also use and that we could probably keep and save for our future generations.

Highly recommend!

This is an extremely well made toy! It was packaged well and arrived in one piece. Once I opened it, I could tell this toy will stand the test of time. It is sturdy and the ball is large enough that you don’t have to worry about it being a choking hazard. My five month old (and cats) love this toy. This is the kind of toy that she can develop with and find new ways to play with as she grows. Highly recommend!
