A wooden rattle is an ideal natural, baby toy. It makes the perfect newborn baby gift.
The ‘Gnosi’ wooden rattle is a heritage toy that’s made to last. It’s designed to be passed on, passed around and down the family until it returns to become a treasured keepsake and reminder of all those sleepless nights and tiny toes.
To make it even more special, a name and/or date can be engraved onto your rattle. Just type it into the ‘notes to seller’ box at checkout.
‘Gnosi’ is the Greek word for knowledge. Baby shaker toys can initially be used by an adult to encourage Baby to focus and reach towards the gentle, clacking sound. Once Baby is older it strengthens their grip as well as developing their hand-eye coordination. Old fashioned baby become firm favourites as they’re a great comforter during teething and just get better looking with age.
Each wooden rattle is handmade to order, so please expect a 1 week delivery time.
The ‘Gnosi’ Rattle comes in a choice of 3 finishes:
Once the rattle’s shaping is complete nothing is added so the rattle comes as Nature intended.
Once the rattle’s shaping is complete 2 coats of sustainable hemp oil are applied and allowed to soak in. The oil protects the wood and gives it a wonderful, silky touch and soft sheen.
The rattles are painted using beautiful plant based colours: the gentle blue of the summer sky, the pure white of fluffy clouds, the yellow of a happy sunshine and the vibrant green of fluttering leaves. By varying the speed at which the lathe is spinning, whilst applying the paint creates a one-of-a-kind pattern.
Each one comes in a organic cotton, drawstring bag hand printed with the Love HeartWood logo.
Measurements: approx. Size: 17 x 5 cm 7.5” x 2”
Please note: Wood is a beautiful, natural material and individual pieces vary in colour and markings. This is what gives each piece its unique character so your rattle will not be exactly the same as the ones shown.

Natural, Oiled, Painted & Oiled
Love HeartWood’s toys are made from reclaimed local Beech wood from Oxfordshire and sustainably sourced Berkshire Ash. Each toy’s handmade by Liz and finished with completely plant based, natural paints and finishes. She uses her experience as a product designer, primary teacher and a mother to create her unique designs.
“My toys help children connect with Nature through playing with wood that looks and feels like natural wood. I don’t spray or coat my toys in chemical based paints or acrylic laquers. I make a range of traditional and original toys that allow children to develop their curiosity and imagination. As a parent, I believe that’s the best gift we can give to our kids.”
