I was so excited when Teething Bling UK offered to send me a Pendant Set to review. I was given a huge choice of colours to choose from, I liked so many of them so listed the ones I liked and asked Lynne to surprise me.
I opened the envelope and pulled out a gorgeous pink Organza bag with the goodies inside. Immediately this gave such a good impression and made me even more excited to discover the pendant and bangle inside.
I was really impressed with the colour of the set sent to me. Lynne had decided to send the Jade set and it is beautiful. For some reason I expected the material to be a hard plastic (which now makes no sense to me) and was really pleased to find it was flexible plastic like normal teething toys.
The bangle looks very pretty on and the flexibility makes it very comfortable to wear.
I put the pendant on, as it happened I was wearing a black vest top and was impressed with the contrast between the Jade and the black, it really brightened up my outfit and proves that it works well as an accessory as well as a teether.
I showed it to Charles, my 21 month old son, and it was as if he immediately knew “ahhh that’s for me to chew on” He shouted “BUTTON” then grabbed the teether and started chewing on it.
He only has his 4 back teeth left to come and although it took him a while to navigate the pendant to the right position to get it to those currently toothless gaps, it seemed to do the job. He chewed for a while and then spotted the bangle. He grabbed my wrist and started chewing. It became awkward so I took the bangle off and gave it to him to chew, he loved it!
The leaflet warns that the pendant could be dangerous for children with a full set of teeth. I decided to test the durability myself and bit into the teether, I am positive that it would take A LOT of use and for the teether to be very worn down anyway for a child to be able to bite through it. Its not something I can see happening very easy so think safety wise, the product is very high-quality.
All in all this is an marvellous product, and I honestly didn’t think I would love it so much, I expected it to be like any other plastic necklace I could buy from Claires Accessories etc but its absolutely not.
I highly recommend this product for all new mums…it’s a great gift to receive and if anyone was to send me one when our new boy arrives in July (in the Zebra print ;-)) I would be over the moon…..seriously though, if I received this set from a friend then I would be really happy. Its also an amazing gift for Mothers Day or Birthdays etc.
With a huge range of colours available there’s so much choice and a colour for everyone, for every season and every outfit!
