It's Toy Time Tuesday for the Gift Guide and this is something for infants and even toddlers. Ella was given a Under the Nile Banana Teether for her first Christmas. I loved that it was made from 100% Egyptian organic cotton and felt totally comfortable with her gnawing on it. The end of the banana was perfect when her side teeth were coming in and it truly helped with the pain. This was much better than the plastic ones she had! I looked all over for pictures, but think they were part of the few that were erased when my hard drive died last year. :(
Best Baby Organics carries a Set of 4 Veggie and Fruit Teethers and I think they would make a perfect gift for the little ones! The fruits and veggies have adorable faces and are super soft- yet thick enough to really help with teething. You can put them in the freezer, so the cold soothes swollen gums or just hand them over for your baby to enjoy gnawing and playing. I love the shapes of the teethers and each one can help with a certain tooth coming in. Like the green beans would be great for back molars and the grapes would be awesome for front teeth. They also make sweet loveys. :)
The Veggie and Fruit Set are even fun for toddlers and creative food play. Since most toddlers still put things in their mouths, this is a safe alternative to plastic foods. Ella still plays with her banana even though she is done teething. I still find it in her mouth when she is distracted by something else. She also likes to make "banana ice cream sundaes" with it.
The Fruit and Veggie set is filled with organic Egyptian cotton, so no nasty filler will come out as your child gnaws. It is also dyed with low-impact dyes that are "metal free" colors. They are made in Egypt and are fair trade. You can get the whole set from Baby Best Organics for $29.99 or purchase them separately for $7.50 each.
