Our Junior Maracas are perfect for working and playing with children from infants to toddlers. They are lacquer-free, made entirely of natural beech wood, and children love them mainly for their simplicity. The maracas can be shaken individually, simultaneously or alternately. The Junior Maracas are filled with fine steel sand. This gives the rattle a beautiful, bright sound.The handles of the maracas are ergonomically designed for small children's hands. With a length of 130 and a diameter of the corpus of 45 millimeters, they are just the right size for our little ones.
