“ Manufacturer: Hawkins Bazaar „
I have bought some interesting items in the past from Hawkins Bazaar and this wooden rattle is one of my favourites. Many moons ago they were held by many supporters at sporting events and were very popular. The last time I saw one was many years ago, but I do have one myself which cost just £2.50 from Hawkins Bazaar.
The rattle is wooden and brightly coloured in red and blue. It is in the style of the traditional football rattle a is entirely made from wood. The noise produced is quite loud and is very popular with youngsters. I bring mine out for the big football matches and other sporting events and it goes down very well with the younger family members. The length of the rattle is 16 cm and I have never had any problems with it. I am very pleased that it has lasted a number of years now and at just £2.50 this is a surprise. definately worth the money and recommended.
My only criticism is that after a while the noise can become irritating due to the fact it is just the same sound over and over and because of the sheer noise it produces!
