Babies can grasp an object from the moment they are born. This is an involuntary movement called the “grasping reflex”. But, by the time the little ones are three months or four months old, they’ll be actively trying to grasp things with better-coordinated movements.
The Montessori inspired Cylinder rattle can be introduced around three months when your little one has just begun grasping. The beautifully handcrafted rattle is of the perfect size for those little hands. The rattle is made from one of the highest quality natural wood – Beech wood. It makes a pleasant sound when shaken.
The Cylinder rattle encourages the development of more voluntary movements and coordination in your little one as she/he tries to transfer it from one hand to the other.
It also helps in improving the baby’s hand-eye coordination, concentration, grasping and exploring skills.
Babies also enjoy teething on it.
- During its lifetime, a tree is subjected to many natural forces that cause variations in wood grain, color, knots, splits, and stains. These variations are not defects. They enhance the beauty of the wood and add to the characteristic of the handcrafted toys making each toy unique.
- As with any baby toy or accessory, please use only under adult supervision.
- Always inspect for damage prior to use.
