I thought it would be easy to buy a small light baby chime or rattle for a soon-to-arrive relative but I can't find one anywhere!

I remember my DS having one simle rattle that was the only toy he could hold and loved for months before other toys came into their own.

Looking online they are all either too big or have loads of stuff hanging off them...

I don't think I'm being hugely fussy, just a small rattle, about the size of a plastic buggy link, with either a couple of small rings or beads on it, or a chime or internal rattle to it.

Something like this if there weren't three of them attached together, would be perfect

Or this chime if it wasn't made of silver

I'm thinking of buying something like this and just hacking the bear off, but maybe that isn't a good idea!

More pictures of not-quite-right rattles.
1st lot - look perfect, but actually enormous
2nd one - wood not plastic
3rd one - chime rattle but ugly
4th one - not suitable for babies

I bought these for my nephew when he was born because they just strap round his wrist

Possibility?

Try the Pebble ones, my dd2 loved this one and it's easy to grip, light and not too loud:

They also have a charming stripy octopus, but that's a bit heavier.

Adorable octopuses - on my list for when baby niece is a bit older

Clearly I've spent too much time fussing about this. Who would have thought a small simple light plastic rattle would be an unobtainable dream!
