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.
Caring for Your Wooden Toys
Wooden toys are beautiful and durable. Toys made of natural materials bring your little one a little closer to the nature by nourishing the child’s senses.
Wood has natural anti-bacterial properties, so keeping them clean is simple and you can even get your kids involved in the process. Here are some tips that can come handy while taking care of the wooden toys –
Wooden toys can be wiped with a dry cloth for daily maintenance and cleaning.
No Soaking. Never submerge wooden toys in the water; to clean or otherwise. The wood can soak up the water which can gradually lead to cracks.
Instead, a slightly damp cloth or sponge can be used to remove dirt or dust and then the toy should be air dried.
While drying the toys,do not leave them in a direct sunlight. Sunlight can cause the colours to fade and long exposure to the sunlight and air might damage the wood.
Every once in a while, you may want to moisturize wooden toys when it starts to look dry or dull. Coconut oil or olive oil can be applied sparingly with a washcloth. Then let it dry.

Note: 1.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. 2. As with any baby toy or accessory, please use only under adult supervision. 3. Always inspect for damage prior to use.
