These hand-crafted colorful clutching, teething, wooden toys are easy to grasp for the young children's hands and perfect for babies aged 6 months and up. For first grabbing and rattling. Wooden shapes threaded on elastic. We use wood that comes from sustainable forestry in Germany. When applying colors, we use multiple layers of non-toxic, water-based, solvent-free lacquers making the surface extremely resistant to wear and tear allowing the toy to be taken from the hand to the mouth.
