Knex baby rattle.

Well, my nephew C***** (He's about 6 months) came over, and he was a bit fussy. So I wanted to make him something to keep him occupied, but it had to have no small parts. So I made him a little rattle thing. You can't get the green rods out without taking the whole thing apart. Which is really difficult.

I'll also try to incorporate it into a "noisy ball machine" I'm going to make.

why not put green rods in a knex ball?

Tried that. Green rods occasionally fell out. Choke hazard. NO KILLING BABIES.
they could come out, and the ball can be taken apart...

Couldn't you just do this with a normal K'nex ball too? Those are a pain to get apart. I would fill them with rings tough just to make sure nothing comes out. It would be cool to see someone make a noisy ball machine.

You could, but like you said, I hate taking them apart. In fact, I need a chisel to do it. So, yeah....
