Rattles have been used to soothe and entertain infants since antiquity. Rattles can simple, like a clay pillow filled with small balls, found in an 2500-year-old burial site in Poland. Then there are more elaborate rattles, status symbols like the $45,000 diamond, sapphire, and ruby encrusted rattle designed for Princess Charlotte. But if you need a rattle in pinch you can always download one of the many rattle-apps to your phone.
