green sprouts Rainbow Rattle

For over two decades i play., Inc. has been researching children’s health issues to make safer feeding accessories that come in contact with babies’ mouths and foods. Due to recent safety issues in children’s toys we saw a need for toys free from potentially harmful toxins. So in 2008 we launched a new line of PVC, phthalate, BPA and nitrosamine free toys made from synthetic materials. Inside Baby: Pregnancy and early childhood are critical times in babies’ lives because they are growing and developing so rapidly. During this time they are vulnerable to elements in their environment, and parents should protect them as much as possible from exposure to potentially harmful substances. The first priority for growing babies is to make sure everything babies put inside their mouth is healthy, safe and promotes the development of strong immune system. • PVC free and Phthalate free: PolyVinyl Chloride (PVC) is a hard plastic that requires harsh chemical softeners, such as phthalates, to make it appropriate for use in soft plastic baby toys such as squirty toys. In 2003 we discovered that phthalates were shown to disrupt reproductive functions and cause other developmental problems, so we launched a line of toys free from PVC and phthalates. • BPA free: Bisphenol A (BPA) is used in hard, clear plastics sometimes used in baby toys to prevent breakage. In 2006 we learned that BPA also disrupts reproductive functions and causes other developmental problems, so we added a line of BPA free toys to our line. • Nitrosamine free: Nitrosamines are found in latex products such as some infant teethers. They have been shown to cause cancer in many animals, so all our teethers and soothers are nitrosamine free.

fun

My baby loves to play with it. She can grip the handle well. She has a lot of fun shaking and banging it. Not so great as a teether since her hand covers most of the handle, the rings are too hard for sensitive gums and the ball ends are too big to bite (also too hard anyway). But it’s great as a rattle. Colors are very pleasing. The ball ends also turn which makes the toy more interesting and fun for baby to play with.

Pleasant sound

Despite my initial concern about the plain color, I got this one because it is toxic-free. I’m glad I bought it. The sound of this rattle is pleasant. My daughter seemed to like the color at the first sight. She is always excited, seeing me shaking it. Now she likes to shake and drop it all the time.

Another fan…great non-toxic rattle!

Agree with the other reviews — this is a great non-toxic rattle for parents looking to give their little ones something safe to teeth/mouth on. My 7-month-old is at the stage where everything goes straight to her mouth, so this is a great option. We got it recently, but I think she would have enjoyed it as a younger infant as well. It’s easy to rattle, she enjoys the different textures, and I like that it’s safe for her mouth and easy to clean — it’s a hit!!

safe toy for baby

I am thrilled that green sprouts is available to purchase on amazon. This toy is BPA free so it’s safer then other toys on the market. I wanted our daughter’s first toys to be safe and free of toxic plastics and paints. I bought every green sprout free shipping toy that I could buy. The shapes on a ring and this rattle are the best of the three. It took our daughter a while to grasp and rattle this one but now that she can she loves it. It is on the heaver side but is durable and safe.

Cute and safe

This is a really cute teether and I love that its made from safe products. I’ve put it through the dishwasher many times with no problems. My baby isn’t super interested in it yet, but he isn’t super interested in any toys yet so we’ll see. I’m happy with it and feel like it is exactly as advertised and worth the money. I went on to purchase more from Green Sprouts and have been happy with everything I’ve purchased from this company.

Organic Teether

I love that this teether is completely non-toxic. My 5 month old is teething like crazy and I feel good giving her this. BUT it’s a tad too big for her right now. I think she will really love it in another month or two.

Great rattle

Baby loves it. Good loud rattle. I wish the colors were brighter/more vibrant, but thats not a deal breaker in any way.

Great rattle!

The handle is soft and great for baby to chew on and fits perfectly in their hands. Each of the rings has a different pattern/texture which makes it interesting for baby. It does rattle a medium noise- it’s not a church toy for sure but isn’t loud and annoying like other squeaky/battery operated toys. And best of all it’s safe for baby!

Not a very good design for little ones

I purchased this rattle because I really like the Green Sprouts brand and the fact that it’s BPA free. Unfortunately, my son doesn’t seem to care for it much at all. I think it has to do with the fact that it’s curved – he can’t really grab onto it securely. It’s always falling out of his hands. If the toy was straight I think it would be a big improvement! The two balls on the end seem to be too large, he wants to chomp on them (teething) but they are way too big to fit into his mouth. So the curve + rattle balls too big = not much fun for little one. Overall I feel I wasted my money which is disappointing to me as I like the brand for over items.

Sounds rude, but the balls are too big for the baby to grab or put in his mouth

My son has had this toy for a few months now. I keep offering it to him hoping he’ll take to it. No such luck. He wants to hold it and tries to put it in his mouth, but it just doesn’t quite work.
