Where are your Wood Toys Made?
All of our wooden toys are 100% made here in the United States. Our workshop is in our hometown of Madrid, Iowa. All of our lumber is sourced from Iowa and the Midwest. The few parts that we do not make ourselves such as wood rings are made by companies in Texas, Illinois, Ohio, and Maine.
How will my personalization be formatted?
Personalization size and format will be dependent on the information you want engraved and can be different from what is pictured on the website. We fit it on the toy the best possible way so it is uniform. Unfortunately, because each toy is different depending on how long the personalization is, we are not able to send a proof.
Where is your Silicone Manufactured?
We use a 100% food-grade silicone that is manufactured in China and 3rd party safety tested here in the USA along with all of our wood toys. There are no fillers or additives in our silicone. We've used the same 2 small manufactures in China since we introduced silicone parts to our toys, they are small factories that we talk to often! The silicone is: Lead Free, BPA Free, Cadmium Free, Mercury Free, Phthalate Free, FDA approved, CCPSA approved, LFGB approved, SGS approved, CPSIA compliant, have ASTM International Certification and CE Certification.
Are your Toys Really Natural?
Yes, our wood is natural. We do not stain it. We use Maple, Cherry, Beech and Walnut woods and their natural colors. Our finish is a 100% organic beeswax and flaxseed oil mixture that is all natural and nontoxic so it is the perfect finish for baby's mouth. The oil brings out the color and the beeswax provides durability. Our paint is a water based, organic paint from a company in the United States. They are 100% safe, lead free, no VOC's, non-toxic and approved for use in children's toys. The glue we use is non-toxic too. Our grasping toys are left "naked", there is no finish on them.

Every time I show someone this rattle, I have to tell them where I got it. It's so dang cute, and it's held up really well. (Even after the toddler gnawed on it, and a few experiences with the dog....) I can't wait for friends to start having more babies so I can buy more states :)
Very cute. Sure the baby will love it!
Absolutely love the quality of all Bannor pieces we have ordered. Top notch and heirloom pieces our little can pass down!
Super cute, easy gift to give! Love the Minnesota rattle.
Minnesota Wooden Baby Rattle™
I bought one of these after see an ad, because I was so drawn to the gorgeous natural wood. Best newborn-haze impulse purchase I made! Wanted something special for our third (and last) baby that wasn't another handmedown.
This teether is solid. It's clearly high-quality, and the option to customize with your own choice of color rattlers is icing on the cake. This and the silicone teether from bannor are always the toys my 8mo crawls to first. What can I say - he obviously has good taste :)
These easily have become my go-to newborn gift! Even better that they're made semi-local to us!
