In ancient Greece, rattles were usually made of clay or metal and varied in shapes. Rattles in the shape of animals, such as pigs and fish, were especially popular. They had pebbles or chickpeas inside them, in order to create a sound.
The rattle was also known as platagi and it was the first toy given to children and newborns, since the sound it made when they shook it stopped them from crying. It was also believed that the sound of the rattle kept away the evil spirits that lay in wait around the baby’s cradle.
