Slovak "Noise Maker"

(great for football, basketball, baseball or hockey games)

milan9a.jpg (24683 bytes)This wood toy is known as a "rapkac" (pronounced as "rop-koch") and is a very old type of Slovak ceremonial tool originally designed as a replacement to the village church bell which was not permitted to be rung during the week before Easter. Children would use a small rapkac to call the people to church. Our idea is somewhat more modern; bringing it to the local sporting events. This one in the picture is just one version. There are some which have a double-ratchet for twice the sound. It is extremely loud! Bring it you root for your favorite football team.

Price $10 (plus shipping from Slovakia)
