You may purchase this spectacular rattle for your own child or just because you want to touch it too! However, it will make a lovely gift for an expectant parent or newborn. I frequently hear the ooohs and aaaaaahs of customers (adults) who can't stop touching these beautiful rattles and see babies who won't let go of them, either. Each rattle is handmade from unique hardwoods and is sanded until it is silky smooth and finished with a certified organic hempseed oil. This is a spectacular gift that will be well loved. It is handmade by a Canadian couple. This rattle is 6 1/4" long and 1 3/4" wide at the widest point. There are two rattles to choose from, one has a dark wood with the light, the other has a medium colored wood with the light wood. You will receive 1 rattle for $25.95. Handcrafted in Canada.
