All babies love a rattle, and this lovingly crafted, easily held Wooden Animal Rattle from Hess is the perfect first introduction.

Designed with a large grasping hole for little fingers and softly “clacking” beads in contrasting colours that rattle against one another when shaken, this beautifully smooth toy will provide comfort and interest for the senses without over stimulating your baby.

Available in two, friendly animal shapes to choose from.

Based in the small German town of Olbernau in the Ore Mountains, Hess has been designing and manufacturing baby toys for more than 25 years. Using woods such as beech and maple exclusively sourced from the region and 100% manufactured in Germany to stringent EU standards, these colourful, kitsch toys are both fun and stimulating for babies of all ages.
