We spent 23 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Toys can be so much more than just playthings; they can actually help your child develop more quickly and fully by, for example, strengthening motor skills and teaching them about object permanence. To get your baby on the right track, we’ve chosen a range of rattles designed to encourage cognitive growth while being fun, too. Just remember to always supervise appropriately. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best baby rattle on Amazon.
