If you think all baby rattles are similar, think again—read on to discover what’s special about the wide array of baby rattles available on Peekaboo!
What should be considered when choosing baby rattles?
The age and developmental stage of your child are what matter the most when it comes to choosing baby rattles. Babies who are teething will need rattles designed out of more chewable soft plastic, whereas older kids may enjoy light-up designs or ones that make different sounds.
Since they’ll be in your baby’s mouth faster than you can stay “stop!” rattles for newborns or very young babies must never include small parts.
Another important factor to consider is how much noise you’re willing to tolerate on a daily basis—if your answer is “close to none,” you may want to opt for a soft rattle rather than a loud, noisemaking one.
