For those who have everything: Cameo by RUX infant rattle

Designer Russell Greenberg immortalizes the facial profiles of Mom and Dad in the barbell-like ends of a baby rattle.

Don’t let the new parents feel forgotten the next time you buy a gift for a baby. Every Cameo by RUX infant rattle immortalizes the facial profiles of Mom and Dad in its two barbell-like ends. Using profile photos of both parents to guide a lathe, the company’s Queens, N.Y., workshop carves each of these one-of-a-kind toys from fine maple. Designer Russell Greenberg, a new father himself, says the idea for the rattles came to him after he used a profile of his wife to create a wedding ring. “There’s a lot of stuff out there” for newborns, he says. “This is intended to be a family heirloom that’s very special.”
