Our Royal Nursery wood rattle is made from strong and tightly grained Rock Maple. The rattle is carved from a single piece of wood. The rings are not put on separately, making this a wood-turner’s carving marvel. Rock maple is the cleanest and purest of all woods. There is no paint, lacquer, wax, oil or any other finish on our rattle. Baby can chew safely on the sweet Maple Wood without parents worrying that rattle will splinter or break. Recommended for babies 5 mos. and older. Comes boxed. Made in Vermont, USA.
