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

Wholesale prices for our rattles are available upon request.

The rattles are approximately .75" x 1.25" x 4.5" and weigh approximately 3 ounces each.

Your rattle come to you wrapped in a small label. The inside of the label lists the natural materials we use & care instructions.

These photographs are a representation of our cherry 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 cherry tree on our land. The second picture shows the label that comes with each rattle. The third picture is of our friends' grandson - who is a very satisfied customer! The fourth picture is of the cherry tree. The final photo is of us, Earnie, Ellie & Myrtle, on the Coquille River collecting driftwood.
