The owners of the Potion Shop, Luv and Bertie, have a small issue that needs solving in Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. Their crying baby hasn’t been able to sleep, as well as Bertie, who chooses to carry the baby around on his back. The only way to calm the baby is by giving the little one its favorite rattle. This is all a part of the Missing Baby Rattle sidequest, which doesn’t take too long complete. Keep reading onward for our guide on finding the baby rattle.
Where to Find the Missing Baby Rattle in Skyward Sword HD
The missing baby rattle can be found buried within a nest by the big waterfall in town. For this particular quest, you’ll need both the Clawshots and Gust Bellows. After speaking with Bertie at his house, located on the east of the island, head over to the windmill in Skyloft. Look upward at the floating islands and clutch them with your Clawshots to begin climbing the vines. Continue until you reach the waterfall, then leap from above to land onto a nest ahead of you. Finally, utilize your Gust Bellows to blow away the sand that’s covering up the baby rattle.
If you have trust issues with blind leaps of faith, you can actually speak with a Sheikah Stone to reassure you. This helpful talking stone can be found at the top of the waterfall, right where you’re supposed to jump. Whip out your Goddess Harp to play a tune, thus permitting the Sheikah Stone to rise from the group. After some brief chatter, the Sheikah Stone will tell Link: “Hey, if you tried to dive off the ledge here, I bet you could land in the nest on top of the tower down there. But what do I know? I’m a stone.”
Once the missing baby rattle is in your possession, return to Bertie at night time (he’s too busy mixing potions at the Shop). The baby is still giving Bertie a hard time, but the tears quickly subside at the sight of the rattle. Talking with Bertie will not only conclude the side quest, but you’ll also be reward with five Gratitude Crystals for your adventurous efforts.
This quest is vital for completionists who seek to collect all 80 Gratitude Crystals. Five may not sound worthwhile, but the Missing Baby Rattle side quest can be done within a short period; it would make sense to get this one done and over with to calm the sleepless baby.
