The teething ring or the Rattle is a sensory toy that develops touch, taste, sight, and smell. Several different rattles are likely to improve the development and awakening of the baby.
It is the baby's first toy since Antiquity: its invention is attributed to Archytas of Taranto, a disciple of Plato. At the time, the rattle was made of metal or clay and had a stone inside. It can already take several forms. In the Middle Ages, it was a luxury item made of bone, horn, shells or coral. A wolf's tooth is inserted there, supposed to protect the child against the "evil spirits" which bring disease and death. The royal rattles are then true works of art. During the Renaissance, they were made of ivory, crystal or silver and the ornament placed there always claimed to protect the child. The rattle for everyone appeared in the 19th century and was made of tin. Today, rattles come in all shapes and textures, but wood remains a favorite.
