“This beautiful infinity teething toy is made up of one ring of beech wood and another of different coloured silicone and multi-textured beech wood beads.
This had instant appeal to my teething 17 month old son Charlie. He picked it up, pulled it with one loop in each hand and then chose to hold it in the centre so that he could explore each of the different textured rings with his mouth. Charlie also loved twisting and bending this toy and stayed interested in it for much longer than a simple ring teether. My only hesitation, as with all multi beaded teethers is that they are not fully enclosed and so there is the potential for mould or bacterial growth inside the beads. For this reason, I would not to give this to a baby whilst they are eating.
This gorgeous non-toxic teether is both visually, texturally and kinesthetically interesting. A beautiful choice.”
“”The Infinity Teething toy is such a gorgeous teether. From the timber, to the beads and the way it is designed. I love the style, colours and knowing it’s sealed with a handmade, organic sealer. Bub just loves playing with it, soothing his gums, tapping it on the table and moving in through his hands – a lovely sensory experience for him. I just need to be careful that the grooves on the beads are cleaned carefully if he uses it with messy hands. A lovely toy overall.

“This is not only beautiful to look at, it’s ergonomically designed for little hands to grip at and tiny gums to soothe. I love the mix of materials – silicone beads, beech & maple timber beads and a timber ring. Not that babies care, but the colour palette is lovely: silver and beech.
I particularly love the ridged wooden beads. Bub, who is currently cutting his four top front teeth, is consumed by it for hours in the car and pram. I think it’s the fact that there are two rings (hence the name “infinity” as in figure 8) – one to grab and the other to chew on. Great little teether!”
“Such a great design! This 100% Non-toxic teething ring is made with BPA free silicone & natural beechwood timber that is safe for baby. Its chew-able, antibacterial by nature & resistant to bacteria, mould & odour. The timber is sealed with Certified Organic Beeswax & a blend of Olive Oil to help prevent mould & bacterial growth. I think this teething toy is ideal for anyone looking for a brilliant design that is pleasing to the eye & ideal for baby, non-toxic & unique by design.”
“The design of this teether is so perfect for kids, just a really great shape. My little one loves this teether.”
