So much friendlier for the ears than those battery noise toys...
I was babysitting Milou and all the toys her parents gave me were those loud electronic toys with horrible sounds and music. My ears were in pain.

I was looking at this cute fabric wondering what to make and I came up with these. One bag is filled with rice and little bells, one with bells and buttons (feeling) and the other with a plastic sandwich bag. A much nicer sound in can tell you.

I made a fish once with crackly fins and I filled it with that cellophane grass you can find by the wrapping paper. I'll bet that would make a great sound in one of these too!

What a neat idea, I've been trying to come up with some homemade things for my niece. Maybe with this I'll get around to putting stuff together for her
