~*~ EARNEST EFFORTS WOOD BABY TEETHING RATTLE

Our handcrafted wood baby rattles are a safe, natural alternative to plastic toys and developmentally appropriate for babies age 4 months and older. We have been sharing our rattles with babies for over twenty-five years in baby stores across the USA, Canada, Australia & Sweden.

Babies & Mother Earth are our most precious gifts and that's why we use the materials we have chosen. Each rattle is handcrafted from sustainably harvested Oregon woods and filled with copper-coated steel bbs for the lovely, rich sound of the rattle. We always use a certified non-toxic wood glue and finish all of our woodworking with Clapham's Beeswax Salad Bowl Finish. Consider adding a jar to your order so you can continue to preserve the beauty of the precious wood.

We NEVER use stains. We sand each rattle smooth to 320 grit for a perfect, splinter-free surface for teething.

Our rattles have been 3rd party tested. They are lead, phthalate, and formaldehyde free and comply with all CPSIA federal regulations including the ASTM F963 standards for toys intended for children under age three.

Our baby rattles were featured in Mothering Magazine's 2011 Natural Toy Guide

~*~ THE PHOTOGRAPHS
These photographs are a representation of our maple rattles. Because each rattle is individually crafted no two rattles are ever the same. The rattle you receive will look slightly different than the rattle in the photograph. These pictures were taken in a maple tree on our land. The second pictures shows the label that comes with each rattle. The third photo is from our Team EcoEtsy friend, Rain of Remainewicked, who sent us this picture of her daughter's hand holding on tight to her rattle! The fourth picture is of a maple tree in all of her fall glory. The final photo is of us, Earnie, Ellie & Myrtle, on the Coquille River collecting driftwood.
