Tepee Rattle Teether


by The Bird & Elephant

The Product:

These sensory rattles with wood teething rings attached are a great way to entertain your little one and help distract them during teething! They are offered in a natural off-white, featuring a block print-like black tipi, and are backed with 100% organic cotton fleece. The fabrics loops are made of 100% organic cotton flannel, and add a little extra play for tiny fingers. The tipi plush is a triangle shape, stuffed with polyfil and a rattle nested inside. The maple ring is hand-rubbed with an organic and food grade mix of olive oil and beeswax, all sourced from the US. 

The Maker:

"....The Bird & Elephant is an ever-evolving brand of baby toys, gear and clothing, including organics and non-organics, both of which are of high quality. My love of and background in graphic design, mixed with my love of vintage, cutting edge, and the sweetness of childhood, is evident in the fabric combos I create. Most of my products have grown from observing my own babies, what they were attracted to at different stages. My patterns and placements, functions and concepts are very much intentional. A lot of thought goes into movement within the fabrics, how one block panel reads next to the others, etc., to create energy and flow among even the calmest of prints. I come from a long line of artisans and crafters, canners and quilters, wood crafters and mule breeders, and all around problem-solvers. My memories of those sweet smelling preserves, the home-baked breads, the clink of wooden blocks and the warmth of a solid patchwork quilt are so ingrained that the natural memory of those processes is beginning to reveal itself in my work and home."
