USE: Sound / noise maker insert used for creating items such as baby toys, pet toys, kids parties, and items used in celebrations (party toys.) This toy is commonly known as as a bird tweeter, but it has also been referenced as a squirrel sound (often found in dog toys.)
DIMENSIONS: 1 3/4 inches wide x 7/8" inches thick
SOUND: Cut and paste this sound clip in your browser to hear the sound of this noisemaker:
HOW TO USE: Simply insert this item inside and sew up the item you are making. This toy makes its sound when you shake it back and forth. It features an outer tube with holes in one end. Inside is a large spring and a smaller piece with a hole in the middle that slides back and forth along the spring. When the toy part is shaken, the sound is made when air passes through the hole of the inner part as it slides from side to side.
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 columns are tested to meet EN71 safety standards.
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!
Please refer to Etsy policy for payment guidelines.
International buyers must provide their shipping address in English.
I take pride in quick shipping of in stock items. In stock orders placed before noon Central time are generally shipped the same day. Otherwise, they will ship the next business day.
Items not deliverable or returned to me for incorrect address (I ship directly off of the address you provide) will be held for 45 days after purchase. After that time, the order will be marked complete. It is your responsibility to send me a corrected address within 30 days of purchase, but I will email you if I receive a package that is returned. This policy has been added since a few customers have waited 3-6 months before responding to me -- and my inventory has typically rolled over by then.
Custom items are dependent upon current order backlog and will ship as soon as the item is made. I do try to give an estimated ship date when an order is placed.
Request a cancellation within: 2 days of purchase
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

Due to the custom nature of my items, refunds for handmade items are not typically accepted.
At certain times during the year, I do accumulate a rather large backlog. If you are unable to wait for a custom order to be completed, I will cancel your order IF it has not been started yet.

<<Custom or personalized items will not be refunded after you have approved the information provided to me unless I am at fault.>>
I now offer a 1 year guarantee on my classroom chair pockets. Please contact me for further details on this item.
HOW QUICKLY ARE ITEMS MADE? I typically have a backlog of orders (orders come in faster than I can make them.) As such, please check my information page where I try to update my backlog schedule on a weekly basis.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU SHIP ITEMS? I do my best to ship stock items EVERY BUSINESS DAY (does not include Saturday or Sunday.) Items purchased BEFORE NOON Central Time are usually shipped same day.

WILL YOU MAKE SOMETHING NOT SHOWN IN YOUR STORE? Yes! I will try my best to accommodate any special requests! Several of my products resulted from custom order requests.

At that time, an appropriate decision will be made to either cancel the order or refund the purchase. IF YOU CONTACT ME after 30 days of purchase, I will not offer a refund or reship option.
