This petite, manageable little tool has a nice springy, whippy feel that's easy to keep close courtesy of a sturdy wrist strap riveted through the handle. With a good hard smack, the cutout wording should show up on a playmate's skin, but the smooth opposite side can be used as well. This slick little paddle packs some fairly serious sting if wielded a certain way, and it's great for gentle, teasing doings, too. The Baby Paddle is approximately 12.5 inches(31.7cm) long and 2.25 inches (5.7cm) at widest. Polyvinyl, nylon, steel. Spot clean.
