A handy little shaker at a handy little price! These colorful shakers make super party favors, or are a great addition to a basket of exploratory rhythm instruments. They are small and lightweight for little hands and easy to clean with an antibacterial wipe. Be sure to buy 2 of them if you want one for each hand—they are sold separately. -Melissa
These egg-shaped plastic maracas are 5" high and produce a great shaking rhythm.

I'm taking a mommy and me class and the teacher uses these to attract the kids to roll over, reach for toys, etc. I see that my daughter really responds to the sound and color. She is also really able to grasp the handle, unlike so many baby toys that are difficult for her to grab.
May be an odd question, but how well do these work after repeated sanitizing? (i.e. with a bleach/water solution) I have a similar pair of maracas but if they get sanitized too many times in one day or one week the beads inside stick together and don't shake as well. Just wanted to know if this would be a problem since they look similar to my other ones.

Best Answer:my understanding is that you should never submerge instruments like maracas or egg shakers. If you just wipe them with an antibacterial wipe (something like wet ones, not clorox or lysol) you should be fine.
