This hexagon-shaped rattle is handmade from natural hardwood and the rings are gently colored with child safe water based stains. Easy for baby to grasp, this rattle has 6 colorful discs which make a gentle noise when shaken.
Baby rattles like the Grimm's Spiel und Holz Wooden Pyramid Rattle & Teether satisfy a baby's early multisensory needs: seeing, touching, hearing, and biting. Babies need something hard to bite on to soothe their tender gums. Babies also need gentle sensory feedback like that of a rattle. It helps infants begin to make connections (when I shake this, it makes sounds). Interesting textures in general provide them sensory stimulation and associations (this surface is smooth, that surface is rough, this thing is hard), which help babies begin to organize information in their disorganized young brains.
Wood is an ideal material for a baby's first sensory impressions, as it has many different sense experiences. Bacteria cannot breed on wood. This is especially true for non-varnished wood.
