Objects to manipulate may include sliding belt buckles, beads on a cord, lacing strips, clothes pegs, d rings on tape, bells, zippers, velcroed and buttoned flaps with items underneath such as wool or lace strips or layered textured fabrics. All items are securely fastened either by strong crochet cushion (e.g for buttons) or machine stitching.
Handwashing is recommended.
