The Rackety Ratchet is an old-fashioned noisemaker. Commonly used in Judaism during the Purim holiday (a "grogger" or "gragger"), this ratchet has two differently spaced wheels, creating even more sound! All you have to do is spin it! The Rackety Ratchet is made of maple and measures 8" wide, 6.5" long (including the 3.5" handle), and 0.75" thick. Unfinished hardwood. Made in Vermont, USA. Ages 3 and up.
