Little Alouette: Organic Wooden Rattles as smooth as silk!!

When I think of my two pregnancies and the excessive amount of presents we received at each shower, I really feel overwhelmed. For about two months after delivery, the postman would keep knocking at the door with boxes and boxes of gifts for these babies, who didn't even have enough days to wear everything on time. Now, they are 6 and 3 years old... and, what do we have left, out of all of those gifts?
Honestly, the only thing that still survives every closet cleaning is a pair of very simple, but super smooth wooden rattles with their names on. My girls loved them, had a lot of fun chewing them, banging them and now, they are a beautiful keepsake to remind us of their babyhood forever...
These days, handmade, wooden, baby rattles have got to an even higher level of beauty with Little Alouette!!
Modern versions of wooden rattles with bunnies, elephants or hippo silhouettes are coming out of this fun company based in Ohio. At Little Alouette, each finished piece is slightly different, every rattle is made by hand using local maple wood, sanded until it is as smooth as silk, coated with certified organic seed oil, filled with beans for a shaky-shaky sound and infused with love ... What else should we look for? This is the ohhh-soooo-cute!! perfect gift for your next baby shower...
If the baby stage is over and you are looking for an eco-friendly wooden toy for your mini one, Little Alouette also has a small line of basic toys. Animal figures, keys and blocks, wonderful to grasp and let your child's imagination fly away, so far away, that maybe you will be able to enjoy a "latte" in peace, without the usual interruptions!! ...hope, hope!!
