Keep Your Eye on the Ball

Your entire life you were told to keep your eye on the ball…just keep your eye on the ball.  Whether it was an actual ball on the playground during recess or gym class, or the proverbial ball that reminded you to keep your eye on the ball, eye on the prize, don’t give up and never surrender — your eye was definitely on the ball.

Well, it certainly seemed like an awful lot of pressure for a young child but you listened and watched and finally made it to adulthood…and you were exhausted.  (You still wake up during the night every now and then, in a cold sweat, after dreaming of running down an empty corridor, being chased by countless balls.  Those suckers were fast!)

Time passed and now that you are parent, you want your child to have every opportunity they can possibly have — but without so much pressure.  Why not start with something simple? Enter Vilac’s Maison des Boules.  Why even the name sounds soothing.

This colorful, completely natural wood toy is a lovely kinetic piece that lets your child keep their eye, fingers and hands on the ball; four of them to be exact. Think of it as a Rube Goldberg contraption that’s been genetically combined with the best Skee ball machine, ever.   How fun is that?

So for now, don’t worry about the getting them into the best preschool, high school and college.  Just let them have fun rolling those balls and hearing the teeny bell at the end of the ramp ring.  Yes, for now it’s that simple.

And remember, life is a ball.  Just roll with it.
