If you are a regular on our blog you will know that Pudding is currently a teething monster! If you are new here you might want to check out our teething post. At my wit’s end a few weeks ago I was scrolling through Twitter when I noticed a new teething device, Matchstick Monkey. My attention was immediately grabbed as the product was a monkey! I needed to learn a bit more about this monkey…
So I popped over to the Matchstick Monkey website to have a nosey. Well I was greeted by a beautiful page filled with colourful friendly looking monkeys.
I have to say I was sold on this product just from this amazing picture! On reading the website I was impressed by the concept of Matchstick Monkey and the design of the teether. Matchstick Monkey have put a lot of thought into the design of this teether. The toothbrush part is good for getting teething gel in the right places. It is also great for introducing little ones to brushing teeth. The Monkey is tactile and easy for small hands to manoeuvre. They are FDA approved and designed by Mum of two, Katie. Katie’s first baby suffered terribly with teething. When her second baby was born she designed Matchstick Monkey! When I got an email back accepting my offer to review I was chuffed.
Unfortunately Pudding looks less than impressed in this picture! Mainly because she was having a teething meltdown prior to the her monkey arriving! She was much more enthusiastic when she realised what it was for!
The Matchstick Monkey is great because he is so easy for her to hold. He also feels lovely. Smooth but sort of velvety. Her favourite thing is if I brush her gums with the toothbrush part. She also enjoys chewing his face!
