Noisemaking toys on Shabbat


It is inappropriate to give children noisemaking toys to play with on Shabbat.

These toys have "kli shem'lachto l'issur" status for adults, and therefore they may be moved for the sake of a permitted use or for the sake of use of their space - but only if moving them would not trigger the noisemaking mechanism.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:22:7)

Have a great day,
