All Natural 100% Handmade

Pebble-Hathay Bunano products are made with 100% natural cotton with polyester fill and are safe for your baby from birth.

As each toy is totally made by hand, there will be some variations in size, colour and design – you can be sure your toy really is unique in every way!

These are lovely, top quality, handcrafted items that will bring smiles to your baby with their bright colours, super-cute designs, and natural quirks!

Baby Rattles You Have to Have!

Your baby will start to grasp toys from around 3 months old and from then on they will start developing their fine motor skills.  At this time, it’s important to provide stimulating toys for your baby to look at and feel – and they love the sound they can make with a rattle!

Once your baby starts teething, you need to be sure that what goes in the mouth is safe and made from natural materials.

Hathay-Bunano rattle toys are handmade from 100% natural cotton yarn, and they are crocheted for softness and safety.

These baby toys are designed to stimulate and engage your baby with colourful designs, tactile feel and a gentle rattling sound.  We love these cuties!
