The heirloom quality Classic Baby Beads will instantly capture your baby's attention and feature smooth, naturally finished wooden beads strung together with elastic. These wooden clutching rattles are designed for tiny hands to reach for, grab, pull, twist, and rattle – an old fashion, hands on toy that encourages babies to experience the tactile world around them while engaging their gross motor skills. As baby delights in manipulating the wooden beads, a clickey-clop sound is produced, allowing them to explore sound and cause and effect. These beads have also been shown to be helpful to those on the Autism spectrum.
