"But Not the Hippopotamus"! Inspired by this Sandra Boynton board book for babies, hippos are a perfect size for tiny hand.  The book features a rhyming story about various animals and a sad hippopotamus who feels left out until the other animals beg her to join them.  The book and a
hippo can be purchased separately or as a set. As you can see in the picture, each hippo is totally unique!

Fish, Rattle and Handle

Made of soft fleece, the fish has a handle that a baby can easily
grasp.  Inside is a small tin box with beads sealed inside, making a
quiet rattle that even a tired parent won't mind hearing.  Although this fish is a glorious yellow, red and green, each fish is unique.  Inquire about availability of special colors.

Patchwork Turtles

Patchwork Turtles have a variety of textures on the shell and legs.  The head is a soft loop for a baby to hold and shake.  Inside, buttons are sealed into a small tin box to make a gentle rattle.  Each turtle is unique. 

Hidden Treasure Box Travel Toy

Turtle Toys Hidden Treasure boxes make an engaging travel toy.  Sealed into a 6x3x2 fabric box with a vinyl window are 25 "treasures".  Every box has sea shells, pretty pebbles, and large beads, along with a variety of small trinkets.  These treasures are "hidden" in a filling of translucent "crystals" often used in vases of silk flowers.  By manipulating the crystals through the fabric, a child can find treasures by bringing trinkets to the vinyl window of the toy.
