What will I get?
- A black and white dumbbell shaped crochet rattle. This lightweight rattle has bells inside, which make gentle sounds when you shake it.
- A lightweight, smooth and sturdy wooden rattle ring with a black and white crochet grip. The rattle has red, yellow, and blue crochet rings around it that your baby will love to shake, squeeze, or move around the circumference.
How to play?
- Hold the rattles before your baby and shake them gently. Slowly move them from side to side, allowing them to follow the sound.
- Place the rattles at a slight distance from your baby as objects for them to reach for and crawl towards.
- Let your child hold and play with the rattles, exploring the different weights, colours, and textures. They will love the sensation of the crochet and wood and enjoy the sounds!
- Your baby could sink their teething gums into the safe material of the rattle. The organic cotton is soft and easy to chew on and the sturdy wood will provide the right pressure to soothe sore gums.
What will my child learn?
Your baby’s fine motor skills, grasp reflex, and hand-eye coordination will improve as they learn to hold the rattles and transfer them from hand to hand.
Their sense of hearing sharpens as they identify and respond to the sound of the rattles. The smart combination of black and white and primary colours will help improve their vision. Their sense of touch is enhanced through tactile stimulation.
The varied sounds, colours, and textures will engage your baby’s attention, invoke their curiosity, and keep them engaged in play.
They will develop gross motor skills as they extend their arms or try to crawl and reach for the rattles.
