Due to some concerns about the jewel dislodging from the pommel and providing a choking hazard, I have added another pommel (pommel2) that does away with the jewel.

I also have an extra rattle that I will be raffling off at the end of April (2016): you can enter by sending an email to contest@targsworkshop.com, put “sword rattle” as the subject.

The totally awesome sword rattle has been picked up by a number of blogs and websites. The most notable being:
Make Magizine : http://makezine.com/2016/04/02/epic-3d-printed-baby-rattler-sword/
Gizmodo : http://toyland.gizmodo.com/prepare-your-child-for-pre-school-with-a-3d-printed-bab-1769339816
Adafruit : https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/03/31/baby-sword-rattle-3dthursday-3dprinting/

Print the peas first (i find that using 2 groups of peas makes the best rattle), and when the blade is about half way printed, drop the peas in the open end; this ensures that the peas are forever contained in the rattle.
