I did a post on baby rattles and teethers on challenge #72. Since that time (two and a half years) I have become very enamoured with rattles with faces. Very enamoured. In my previous post I had four of this variety.
This cutie was given to me by a blogland friend Doreen, for my birthday.
These two are both meant to suction onto something. The suction on the left has seen better days. The majorette head is a favorite.
The majority of my collection I have found locally. Every once in awhile I get one off Ebay or Etsy.
They are usually made of plastic. I have a couple that are celluloid. An assortment of beads make up their bodies as well..so many variations on style,shapes and colors.
Some are in their original packaging.
These smiling faces are just hard to resist! The smaller heads have bells inside and were attached to baby slippers. When the child walked they would jingle.
I gravitate towards human faces, but a few animal heads have snuck their way in as well.
I really, really like this collection. It finally has outgrown the spot in my studio and was scattered here and there. Since I really like things grouped together, I had to find a new spot for them. That post coming tomorrow.
If you have an idea for a future collection challenge, leave me a comment and finish the sentence "Show me your collection of ____." Fun to share a collection that has grown so much!
