I am retiring from rattle making from the end of August 2018 but will accept orders up to that time. I have been making and selling rattles for over forty years and I have enjoyed every minute of it because of the wonderful customers both trade and retail I have had. I should like to thank you all for both your custom and loyalty and wish everyone best wishes for the future.

The Plate Rattle & Bowl Company is a small family business that was set up in 1987 producing kitchen treen (platters, salad bowls etc) rattles and bowls - hence the name. In 1999 we decided to become specialist rattle-makers, probably the only such company in the UK.We are committed to producing high quality gifts for babies.

We have spent time, not just on the design of a beautiful present but also to ensure that you receive a complete and satisfying product and service. We only make babies' rattles and as specialists can offer high quality, individual gifts at affordable prices.
Each rattle undergoes at least fourteen different processes before the final product is ready for despatch. At every stage we check for quality, making sure that you will be delighted with what you receive.

The Plate Rattle & Bowl Company supports The Footprint Trust, a charity on the Isle of Wight working with the Island's community to promote the benefits of sustainable living.

Many of our customers still have the rattle as a keepsake, with teething marks many years later.
