SMALL RATTLE DISCS
USE: Sound / noise maker insert used for creating items such as baby toys, pet toys, kids parties, and items used in celebrations (party toys.)
DIMENSIONS: 7/8 inches wide x 1/2 inch thick (22 x12 mm)
HOW TO USE: Simply insert this item inside and sew up the item you are making. Small rattles are great for small items. If you need a louder sound and have more room, try the large sized rattles (see pictures 3 and 4 for a size comparison) listed here:
CLEANING: Once sewn into a toy, you can machine wash/hand wash and machine dry/hand dry the toy as you normally would.
SAFETY: These rattle discs are encapsulated. This means the contents inside are completely sealed. If you were to break the rattles open, you would find tiny, PLASTIC beads inside. (Some rattles contain metal beads inside.) They have been tested to meet EN71 safety standards.
SHIPPING CHARGES -- PLEASE NOTE: If you see a large shipping charge, DO NOT be alarmed!
Shipping costs may not be correct. If you are trying to purchase SEVERAL items at one time, the Etsy shipping calculator may give a LARGE shipping charge. Etsy has automated their shipping charges. I continue to try revising this almost daily, but it still seems to not be working...
I only charge ACTUAL shipping plus a 35 cent packaging fee. Any overages WILL BE REFUNDED at time of shipping. Even if ordering several items in the USA, most bulk items will fit in a Priority Mail Flat Rate Padded Envelope. This charge ranges from $6.50-$7.50, depending upon where you live.
While I do ship International, the USPS has dramatically raised shipping costs from what they used to charge. Please contact me BEFORE purchasing if you would like an International Shipping Quote. I DO NOT mark items as a gift. You may be required to pay customs fees at delivery -- please be aware of your country's customs laws.
WHY DO I SELL THIS PRODUCT?
Several years ago, I used to make original baby toys and gifts for friends, family, and even my own kids. I started selling these items on Etsy. As my kids got older, my product focus shifted to other items that people asked me to make.
Part of the reason I got away from making items for kids, too, was the difficulty in finding the right materials that I wanted to use for my items -- especially kid and pet toys. When I did find materials, they were usually so expensive that I could not justify using them.
While I continue to make products in my store on a limited basis (mostly organizers), I want to share my original patterns for other people to make. My patterns will be offered very soon (I am still finishing the final touches.) And, I am offering these supplies so that anyone can have fun creating just like I did.
Handmade items are so personal! Part of the gift is knowing that you created something unique for someone and you made it with love. And, a little piece of you will be shared with someone else. Have fun creating!
