Rattle, an inventory of forms
|Author||C. Daprey; S. Jacob; A. F. Ogata; M. Hale Lyndon; T. Nishikawa|
The rattle is often the first toy a child is given, because it stimulates their five senses and helps in their development. Its role as a toy that promotes early learning is essential, but it also acts as a “transitional” object, reassuring the baby when separated from their mother. Inspired by new theories of child development, 20th-century designers such as Kay Bojesen, Patrick Rylands, and Antonio Vitali made revolutionary changes to this familiar object. Drawing on a unique collection, this book presents a rigorous selection of dozens of imaginative creations from this period, with materials ranging from different kinds of natural wood to the smooth, brightly coloured surfaces of plastic.
