How did this product make your life easier?
Elly: This product is amazing. The baby started teething early and struggled to hold teething dummies or the matchstick monkey. This one, however, he loved. He found it easy to hold, to manoeuvre to his mouth and of course chew. The fact that it was hard in places and then flexible arms meant he could chew it and help relieve his gums. He did not keep dropping it and I could do the dishes while he was chomping on it.
Clare: My daughter did enjoy using the teether, and it was well designed in terms of her ability to grasp it. It kept her occupied for a while although she did have a tendency to drop it on the floor. However, it was easy to wash and dry so not a big hassle when this happened. It can also go in the dishwasher, which is a definite benefit. The material feels nice and soft which I think appealed to her and felt good on her gums. The bright red colour is smart and the monkey theme is cute.
Laura: I've found this teether to be great for distracting my daughter when she starts whinging! If we're out and about I can give it to her to chew on and she'll sit quite happily for a while, giving me a little peace and quiet whilst relieving her gums. I like the size of the product too as it's perfect to keep in the baby bag.
Would you recommend this to other mums?
Nicola: I would recommend this as it's a perfect size for our baby. He's 6 months and recently started to teethe, he's been gnawing this every day and it looks as good as new. The strong silicone can withstand the chewing and is safe to sterilise to clear any unwanted germs. The elephant ears are great handles to hold onto, my little one is able to grip these tightly. The teether isn't too big so it is very easy to carry around with you in the changing bag.
Victoria: This product is providing relief to my daughter's teething. It looks fab (we received the elephant), it's easy for her to hold and has plenty of bits for her to chew on. It’s is hard enough for her to chew/gnaw on to give relief but not too hard. It’s not big so can easily take out and about, so far it hasn’t been out of her hand. We have decided to call him Eric.
Claire: I would recommend this teether to my friends because it is easy to clean, good value for money and most importantly my little one likes it. The hygiene factor is important for me, there is nowhere for dirt or mould to gather like some teethers and putting it in the dishwasher requires minimal effort for mum! The Yogis teether is a good size to put in your change bag/day bag and take out and about.
Would you choose this product to win?
Laura: I think this is a good product and I certainly like the colour and the shape of the teether, but I don't think it stands out against some of the competitors which are more multi-functional and have additional sounds. My baby tends to prefer another teether that we have, although I personally prefer the colours and design of this one.
Claire: I would choose this product above others on the market because the design is great and bright which my son loves. Its silicone material is great on my son's gums, massaging them when in pain, and he loves holding it and chewing it. The size is perfect and easy to grasp. It's easily washable and we're able to put in dishwasher.
Elly: I would always choose this product and always recommend it to other mums. The one thing that stood out for me was the flexibility of the top arms. This meant that the baby could push it into his mouth, without hurting himself or needing a lot of coordination. This meant that I did not have to hold it in his mouth for him to chew it.
What changes would you make to this product?
Clare: It might be nice to have different textures incorporated into the teether, for example, bristly areas or bobbles. Different colours may also add to the appeal, or maybe design different animals in different colours, in addition to the red monkey. On the whole, though, I think this is a good quality, functional item.
Victoria: I wouldn’t change anything about it. As I have said above, it’s size, design, the material seems to be doing the job for my daughter. It looks great and is bringing joy and some relief from teething to my daughter. Its quality and ease of use surpass other similar products that we have already tried.
Nicola: I would include more texture, the teether does have different textures but I'm not sure my baby can feel then when he chews on it. I think a stronger change in texture would make this product better. I wouldn't want to compromise on the shape though as I thought this is great for small hands to hold. I would probably make the bumps on the elephant's paws more prominent so that the baby can feel a stronger difference in texture when chewing.
