Things to look for:
This kit comprises 3 handcrafted baby rattles and teethers: A bear head-shaped teether for your bundle of joy, a circular rattle cum teether with rings and a fish, and a Maraca-shaker baby rattle.
How to start playing?
For Teether, simply keep a few of Matoyi’s wooden neem teethers in the baby’s reach, so that the baby can easily pick one or two to gratify his/her senses in the best possible way.
For Rattles, you can hold this wood rattle over your baby and slowly move it from one side to another. The beads when struck against the handle make a fascinating sound.
These wooden baby rattles can be played independently or interactively.
Note: Since we use high-quality natural wood, it has unique markings. There will always be some variation in the wood grain and its color. Since these toys are hand-crafted and hand-painted, each toy could have some variations. These variations in natural wood are a sign of our superior quality, so enjoy this uniqueness.
These baby rattles will help sharpen the foundation skills, especially grasping, along with many others like,
1. Fine Motor skills:
Babies will attempt to hold the wood rattle tightly, twist it, move it from one side to another. They also learn to hold the rattle in one hand and then transfer it to the other hand.
Grasping and clutching a teether enhances their fine motor skills and strengthens the hand muscles, which helps in the smooth transition from teethers to using daily things such as spoon, brush, etc.
2. Cause and Effect:
It introduces the concept of cause and effect to your little one, which is a cognitive concept.
3. Hand-Eye coordination:
When you move this wooden baby rattle across their field of vision, it captures their attention. As you move across their line of sight, they learn to visually track and coordinate eyes together. They’ll also reach out and try to grasp.
This teether toy for babies helps to develop hand-eye coordination as they learn to clutch it with their hands and bring it to their mouth.
4. Sensory Skills:
Moving this baby rattle, banging it, or playing with it makes different sounds. These sounds promote auditory stimulation. Observing the shape and colors stimulates their vision.
It encourages tactile stimulation when they hold the rattle and feel the smooth edges and surfaces.
5. Strengthening mouth and jaw muscles:
Teethers for babies are not just to soothe a teething baby, but also to strengthen the mouth and jaw muscles for chewing and babbling.
