I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this yet, but Sunshine is teething. She is 9 months old and has 8 teeth already. My ferocious little nibbler is in need of lots of things to gnaw on so she doesn’t chew on me….or my couch. Three Little Birds Children’s Boutique (3LBCB) sent me two different teething toys in exchange for a review with my honest thoughts and opinions. I received one of their teethers, as well as a teething blanket.
3LBCB’s teething toys are a piece of soft, cute fabric wrapped around a natural wooden ring. The fabric section is removable, so that means it’s washable! It is very nice to have washable toys when you’re dealing with a slobbery baby. I also like it when toys are washable because I feel better about taking them to public places where other babies may get grabby and swipe a toy or two during playtime. Yes, I am a slight germaphobe. I like the combination of soft fabric with a hard ring, luckily so does Sunshine. At a price point of only $8.50 these teething toys are a steal.
Sunshine will not go to sleep without snuggling a lovey or blanket. I take it away once she’s asleep, but she has to rub it to fall asleep. The softer the blanket, the better! 3LBCB makes adorable teething blankets that have a removable natural wooden ring. Like the teething toys, 3LBCB’s blankets are washable. It’s a toy that functions as both a toy and a blanket/lovey, can’t beat that.
I never really thought of a teething blanket before I saw this, but it’s a pretty genius idea. One of Sunshine’s teething signs is she starts to take her blankets, put them between her teeth, clench down, then pull the blanket out fast. That’s the main way she chews on blankets. Well, with this she has a built-in teething toy to use instead of trying to shred her blanket. As you can see above, the wooden ring snaps out so you can wash the blanket. One side has a novelty print (I chose Star Wars), and the other side is a minky chevron. I don’t know if you’re familiar with minky fabric, but it’s ultrasoft and plush. It is one of my favorite types of fabric. A teething blanket from 3LBCB costs about $18, which I think is a very affordable price especially considering that teething blankets serve two purposes. I actually ordered a second blanket tonight to give as a gift. My budget is tight, so I try to get as much as I can for my money when giving gifts. I feel confident giving a 3LBCB teething blanket as a gift because I know the recipient’s baby is going to love it.
Speaking of love, why I love 3LBCB
- Well-made – both items held up well, the dog even went after the teething toy and it survived to live another day (with a few little doggie teeth marks)
- Prices are great, a lot of times for natural or homemade items prices are very high, glad to see this is not the case for 3LBCB
- Soft fabrics – the fabrics 3LBCB uses are cushy and comfy for baby
- Natural wooden rings for baby to chew on as opposed to plastics
- Colorful fabrics and changes in texture help keep baby occupied/interested
- Washable! I need to be able to wash baby’s toys and keep moving
- Great fabric selections used in the ready-to-ship items, and the owner also takes custom orders
- When you buy from 3LBCB you’re supporting a work-at-home-Mom (WAHM) - I love supporting WAHMs
