Wooden Egg Maracas from Finns Finds

maracas, green maracas, eco-friendly maracas

Happy Cinco de Mayo! What better day to discuss our love of maracas in this household? Babies absolutely love to shake handheld musical toys, and maracas in the shape of an egg have been Olivia's favorite since she could make her first tiny fist (and she's been ruling the world ever since!)

These festive red egg maracas are from Finns Finds, an adorable online boutique for babies and children. They are designed in Paris, by Vilac, a toy company which has been in business since 1911. The sweet shakers are made of wood that is turned, smoothed, sanded and lacquered by skilled craftsmen, and then coated with non-toxic paint. I love that they are made of wood, and not plastic, which is all I had previously come across before finding these gems.

So get your groove on today and every day there after by shaking it up a notch with these musical eggs!
