Children just love snakes. I don't know why but they all seem to! These are made in a lovely soft hand knit, in a garter stitch, which is very soft and make a great toy as well as a lovely rattle. These super fun friendly snake have a lovely gentle rattle sound, a sticky-out forked tongue!
Pebble Snake Rattle
All Pebble toys are 100% cotton with 100% polyester fill. About 13cm. They are all machine washable at 40 degrees and can be tumble dried on a low setting.
Caterpillars always fascinate little children. Its something about the way they wiggle. These crochet ones are oh so wriggly and have lovely smiley faces. Destined to be a favourite!
When we started Pebble there was never any question that we would make a range of snakes at some point. What is it about children, that they all love snakes. In fact when I was brainstorming with my friends for a name for Pebble back in the early days, there were many who thought that the new brand should be called snakes, so convinced were they of the love of children for these slippery reptiles.
The ones we make are not slippery, in fact they're rather cuddly. We make them in a hand knit garter stitch, which is where every row is knitted and although more time-consuming than a regular stocking stitch it gives such a lovely soft finish that we thought it would be perfect for these little friends.
At Pebble we like to think that our toys spread smiles worldwide: the ladies who make them in Bangladesh smile because the toys bring them work, the parents smile because the toys keep their babies happy and enable them to shop with a conscience and the babies smile - well you can see why! We hope you love this little rattle as much as we do.
