Pebble rattles: perfect bright and colourful unisex baby gifts
Here at Uni and Jack we are proud to stock Pebble rattles by Hathay Bunano and knitted toys by Best Years. Pebble rattles are ethically sourced and socially responsible, or as Pebble put it themselves they are “helping women out of poverty and putting smiles on faces worldwide!”
The Pebble crochet rattle collection is constantly being updated to keep a colourful contemporary style with children at heart. We have carefully chosen our selection of rattles to mix and match with our other bright unisex baby clothing ranges by Helen Gordon and Maxomorra. To get you started, the Pebble gingerbread, toadstool and owl rattles make a fabulous unisex gift set teamed with Helen Gordon fairtytale prints and the pear rattle makes a great set with the Maxomorra apple print baby vests.
Pebble rattles are made by Hathay Bunano
These quality hand made toys are sourced from community businesses in Bangladesh by Hathay Bunano meaning “hand made” or “hand knitted” in Bangla. Hathay Bunano is a non-profit fair trade organisation in Bangladesh. Its mission is to create fairly paid, good quality, flexible and local employment for rural women who are poor and often disadvantaged.
According to Pebble’s website “Hathay Bunano aims to provide employment which fits in with the rhythm of rural life and to prevent economy migration to the cities. It aims to keep families together and in particular to keep mummies with their babies and children by providing employment in a village setting close to their homes. It aims to address all the reasons why a woman might not be able to work and to support her so that she can work and can earn money to support her family.”
So, you can rest assured that your baby gift will do good to children at the other end of the world at the same time as it puts a smile on your new baby’s face at home.

Best Years soft toys and knitted T-rex rattles
Best Years striped T-rex rattles have to be one of the funkiest knitted crochet toys to hit the shelves this season in the UK. The stripy design is perfect as a bright and colourful unisex gift – who said that only boys could have dinosaurs anyway! The crochet T-rex rattle also comes in green for the more traditional amongst you (like knitted dino rattles are traditional). Even better, these knitted stripe T-rex rattles are tested to EN71 and CE, suitable from birth and machine washable.
… and if you really wanted a knitted stripe T-rex for your older child, the good news is that they also come without the rattle in a larger sized toy to cuddle – buy now here!
