A few of my friends and loved ones have decided to start families, which is a good thing… for them. I personally find the little crumb-snatchers cute and lovable as long as I can run when they get noisy and stinky. But I digress. The point is, there is a little one I see quite a bit and, against my nature, I like the little tyke. He is hitting the point in babyness where everything is interesting and new. He inspired me to try making a baby rattle.
It is made from the left over maple ends that toy companies used to make wooden wheels. Can you believe they just throw away the three inches of wood their automated machines don’t use? I got a deal on some and viola! Toy!
