Take a minute and visit this page to read more about their company and their amazing story! They have a high commitment to safety and it reflects in their products. Here is the safety disclaimer from their website:
Occasionally a customer will ask if Teething Bling ® is appropriate for a child of a certain age. Our products are designed for adults to wear to soothe and entertain babies with emerging teeth. Children with fully developed teeth may be able to bite through Teething Bling ®. Therefore, parents must determine what is best for their own situation and child and as always, we remind everyone that children - of any age - should never be left unattended with jewelry of any kind.
Each teething product they carry are made from the same kind of silicone found in other teething toys and spoons. They are free of phthalates, BPAs, PVCs, lead & latex. The 'chain' is made of nylon. They are CPSIA compliant & carry the CE mark (meaning we meet the strict European safety standards as well) and their materials are federally approved.
Ok now for the review!
I contacted Amy, founder of Smart Mom about doing a review & giveaway for one of her Teething Bling necklaces that I've been drooling over. She sent me out the Jade Donut Pendant. I swear it was the fastest shipping ever! We also were able to giveaway a diaper for review on their Facebook Page. As soon as their Smart Mom finishes her review, we'll share it with you.
When the mail arrived that day, it was as if my 15 month old knew that the package was for her. My husband grabbed the mail & told her to bring me the package. I set it aside so I could finish sewing before I opened; but, she wasn't going to settle for that. She climbed up on me, grabbed the package, shoved it in my face & started talking in her randomness. Needless to say, I stopped sewing to open the package.
It was so cool to see her face light up! It was so funny because I had never showed her Teething Bling before nor had I told her it was for her. Yet, she started bouncing up and down & squealing with excitement I said, "Oh, we have to take a picture before you can see it." She was not impressed.
I wish I had video recorded it instead because she could hardly control her excitement. Ok she really couldn't control it at all! She kept squatting in front of it making "OoOoOooo" & squealing noises. When I finally opened it, she quickly grabbed it & put it right in her mouth!! She walked around with it in her mouth for about an hour solid. She walked around the house and showed everyone her new love. She has since carried it with her everywhere each day since then. She'll put it in her mouth for a little while, then set it down & go play with something else for a while & come back and put the teething bling in her mouth again.The only other toys that she puts in a safe place & comes back for throughout the day are her baby doll & her 'quack, quack.'
Amy is so genius! She designed these amazing teething products & its the first one that my daughter has actually wanted to keep in her mouth. Normally she chews on everything but her teething toys. I absolutely love Teething Bling & highly recommend it to anyone who has a teething baby! They also carry bangles and Babe Magnet Ties.
