Design: BB Rattle
Materials: Ash and BB's
Designer: Niels Cosman
"These simple wooden rattles are crafted by hand for little hands (and mouths). BB Rattles are a refreshing alternative to mass-manufactured plastic toys, using natural textures and organic shaping to keep the little ones endlessly stimulated."
"BB rattles are made from locally harvested Ash, a material prized for its durability and strength often used to make tool handles and baseball bats. Ash is also valued by instrument makers for its superior acoustic qualities. The rattles are conscientiously made using FDA approved non-toxic glues and a special food-safe, natural oil finish."
