Exquisitely crafted Wooden Toys and Wooden Baby Rattles
By renowned Maine toy artist William John Woods

Handcrafted by renowned toy artist William John Woods of Ogunquit, Maine

I made my first baby rattle about 18 years ago and it was love at first sight. Although I have made many more rattles since then, I still have that same feeling. I like to experiment with different colored woods to create these strikingly beautiful rattles.

As with all of my work, there are no stains or dyes used. The walnut oil and bees wax are enough to bring out the wonderfully warm colors of the maples, cherry and walnut and the plantation-grown redheart, purpleheart and cocobolo. This all natural finish is baby safe as well as environmentally safe. Gift cards, with a description of the woods, are included with each rattle. If you would be willing to send a photo of your baby enjoying their rattle, I would love to put it on my site.
