This beautiful animal rattle gourd are perfect for babies and young children. The long slim "tail" end makes them perfect for little hands to grasp. They are carved by hand and coloured naturally by blowing heat from a smouldering eucalyptus stick onto the gourds skin. The longer it is exposed to heat, the darker the gourds exterior becomes. And because these little animals have no nasty additives or colourants, your child can chew on it to their hearts content! A favourite in our household!
