The tone! The sound! Of PLASTIC! Seriously...Milton Bradley never had this in mind when these game tiles left the mold, but these small Upwords tiles (there are two sizes) have such a pleasing bright, shimmery presence when made into a shaker. The tiles are also super light, making this hand rattle easy to play, and capable of fast patterns that would be more challenging with traditional seed pod or wooden versions. Check out the video to hear it in action!
