Once upon a time, a young woman from the UK fell in love with a young man from Bangladesh. Eventually they moved to Bangladesh and had a baby. As the new mother cuddled her tiny boy, she couldn’t help but notice all of the young women streaming into the garment factories every morning. She was deeply saddened when she discovered that many of these woman had babies back home in their villages, left for months at a time with grandparents while the mom worked in the city. Lack of rural employment for women was separating families and putting the mothers in harmful situations and the babies without their mothers. So this new mom did what she could. She gathered a few women around her and taught them how to knit and crochet little dollies that could be sold in the Western markets. Samantha Morshed dreamed that this would grow and become an alternative source of income for women throughout Bangladesh. 15 years later, her dream is becoming a reality. More than 13,000 women are now employed making Pebble toys in their home village. They walk to work, taking their babies with them. There they sit together, yarn spilling onto their laps as they knit community and love together in each heirloom Pebble toy. Pebble was born out of a love for babies and their mothers.

I absolutely love this! My husband and I use this all the time to build out babies strength up. She is just turning 4mos and was a premmie so she is a little behind in growth. But this is turning out to work well. It is very soft and I feel comfortable when she gets to the point of putting things in her mouth that it is not going to harm her.
My son is seven months old and loves his garlic. He will carry it all day and chooses it over other toys offered at the same time. It makes a cute little chime noise
A perfect rattle for a 4 month old. Made really well
The only rattle that doesn't hurt when my 9 mont old bonks himself in the face with it.
Very cute! My Daughter is 3 1/2 months old and is beginning to play with things more all the time.
Really fun rattle. I love that it's soft. Baby can bend it every which way.
