I like this rattle, it has a bit of a different twist to it. The Chicco Fun Saxophone Rattle produces what the site describes as realistic sounds of a sax. Now that's pretty cool! It has been reduced in the Mothercare sale from £7.99 to £2.39. Delivery is free if you can collect instore.
The rattle is shaped to look like a saxophone, in a stylish kind of way more than a realistic one. As well as making music, when your child shakes the rattle, or the sax, the rhythm of the melodies and the light effects vary. Should make it a little bit more interesting for them!
I think this would also make a fabulous gift. It is certainly something a little bit different, plus a little bit cooler than your average rattle. I'd have to actually hear how realistic the sax sounds were though before I could say for sure. Anything that's too tinny or electronic sounding could be awful!
The site says that the rattle is suitable for children aged 3 months and upwards. The rattle requires two x AAA batteries, and a set of batteries is included as well.
