Baby rattles are a great way of helping baby develop auditory skills and gross motor skills. Rattles make great newborn baby toys. Your baby will follow the sound of the rattle and will eventually learn to grasp it and create the sound all by herself.
A wooden baby rattle makes an ideal teething toy for baby, too! Baby can bite down hard on a wooden rattle when she’s got sore gums. We love the rattles from Hess Spielzeug and Plan Toys, and the combination of sustainable rubberwood and natural latex in the Hevea baby rattles.
A soft toy rattle make great baby teething toys, too. They’re soft and snuggly for baby, and have a rattle tucked away inside. We like the Wee Gallery rattles with wooden rings, and for something different, have a look at the Apple Park wrist rattles.
