My little girl was born with lots of hair and has always had quite a bit of hair so when she was only a couple of months old I decided to invest in a burns and comb for her as even though her hair was nice and straight when she got out of the bath it always needed a bit of a comb during the day to stop it from getting all wild and crazy.
I decided upon the Tommee Tippee Brush and comb set and at just £2.29 for both I thought that was a real bargain. I bought the set in Boots and to be honest only got this set because it was the only one in the shop but I know the Tommee Tippee name and rate it very highly so for me it was not a problem that it was the only one available.
Just as the name suggest this sets comes with a brush and a comb. My set is in a light blue colour. What I like about them is that they are quite little and this is a benefit for me in two ways. Firstly you only need a little comb to use on a little persons head, any bigger(and I have tried my own brush on her hair) it just doesn't do the job and is a bit uncomfortable for them as well. Secondly, as she has been getting older she likes to comb and brush her hair herself and this comb and brush is big enough for her to hold in her hands and use on her hair herself which is actually very cute.
The brush has really soft bristles for delicate scalps and to be honest I don't use the brush that much. I think the bristles are a bit too soft and they make her hair really static and fly away if it use it on her. The bristles are alright now for her very thin hair but in a year or two when it gets thicker I just don't think the brush will work its way through the hair well enough. The comb I really like. It is plastic with short little prongs and glides through her hair really nicely, it's basic but that's really all you need. THe comb does not create any static and does not have any scratchy bits on it either so its perfect for little heads.
A set I definitely recommend.
I first bought this Tommee Tippee brush and comb set when I was expecting my daughter. I purchased it for around £2 in Asda whilst doing my grocery shopping. We still use the comb now!
The brush and comb set are suitable for babies ages 0 months+, the set was available in either a light blue or lilac colour. I purchased the blue, just because I was having a girl didn't mean I couldn't buy blue stuff! It came on a cardboard backed packet with a see through plastic cover over the brush and comb to keep them safe, and so we could see what we was getting.
The brush has been specially designed with extra soft bristles so that it is soft on babies head. It is around 10cm long and 2cm wide, its made from a tough plastic and would be hard to break. The comb is slightly longer than the brush at around 12cm but thinner at between a cm to 2cm wide, it is made of the same tough plastic. The head of the comb has lots of spokes, these are slightly rounded so they aren't to sharp on a little ones scalp, this part of the comb takes half of the length, then the rest is an easy to grip handle.
I used the brush on Kacie's hair until it started growing properly, the bristles are so soft that they wouldn't go through her hair when it started to get longer than a cm or two and couldn't cope with knots. However, we used it everyday up until then and Kacie was never bothered or seemed in pain when I brushed the little hair she had. Since we stopped using the brush we started using the comb instead, I was a little sceptical at first but with the ends of the bristles being smoothed over and rounded it did a fantastic job at combing Kacies hair without any discomfort.
Overall, at around £2 a set I find these to be fantastic value for money. I'm still using the comb on my daughters hair now, 22 months later! The brush is still used from brushing dollies hair. I would definitely recommend.
One of the first buys for my little man was toiletries for him so when I was browsing in Tesco and cam across this brush and comb set for £2.50 I was delighted.I chose the blue version as it was for my little boy but there was also a pink version there.
You receive a brush and a comb in a pack together they are both much smaller than a regular comb or brush as you would expect as they are for a baby. They have both been designed so that they can be used from 0 months +.
The brush has a solid plastic handle and base and then at the head of the brush are soft bristles form the part that can glide through baby's hair. When you brush little ones hair they softly move them in place to make them form a straight path whichever way you choose to move it. As they are extra soft and flexible baby is not hurt by them they are not scratchy and most of the time I found my son did not even realize his hair was being brushed.
The comb is made of hard plastic and has many grooves at the end to form the head. Although it is made of a sturdy plastic the edges of the comb have been rounded of so when you brush little ones hair it still provides a super soft experience a little more noticeable to baby than the brush but it works a little better keeping the hair neat and tidy for a little longer than the brush.
Both the brush and comb are sturdy we used them for 2 of my children before going in the attic with the rest of the baby stuff. They are easily washed as they are plastic so wipe clean easy enough. For my boy both were just as useful as each other but when it came to using them for my little girl who had just a little more hair I did find the brush was just to soft and would actually seem to make her hair a little wilder. I used the comb on her hair perfectly and it had the desired effect I was looking for helping tidying her hair up.
I would recommend this set to anyone its a very sturdy but basic necessity and retailing at £2 -£3 it really is a bargain!
Babies dont generally have a lot of hair, but i think it is always good to get the little ones into a routine with teeth brushing and hair combing.
I found this brush and comb set in my local 'cheapie shop' for £1 and thought, tommee tippee = quality, and at a quid, not a lot to lose.
I bought the set pictures above in a blue colour, the only colour available in the store and had a good look when i got home. When the inital smell of plastic wore off when i had opened the packaging i took a gander at the products.
The comb is around 10-15cm in legnth and is made of plastic. It has a hamdle to hold, although a little on the small side and has many 'spokes', only mm's thick and apart in which to comb the hair through. If vigorous, the edges of this comb i think would be a little scratchy on the scalp and i believe the plastic to be quite brittle, especially if snapped. None the less, a perfect size for little hands to have a go at theit, or mumm'y hair...ouch!
The brush also blue in colour, has a handle and a paddle like head with tiny clear bristles which are soft to the touch. Oval in shape, the paddle is roughly 8-10cm with the paddle at the base.
This brush wouldnt be much cop at actually removing knots, but feels very soft and almost massage like to the scalp. My son finds it very fun to brush his teddies until they are balding!!
Practically, this set isnt top of the market, but the comb especially will get rid of the odd knot and the set are a great way of introducing personal grooming to the children.
Apologies, not a huge amount to say about a basic brush set.
4/5 for me!
Well is there really much to write about a brush and comb set?
I bought this set because it's cheap. *see prices below* I had my newborn son and the soft bristles are perfect for a newborn's head. The comb is still sitting in one of my handbags and hardly been used.
Now my son is 8 months old and the brush is useless! It's far too soft to do anything for my son's hair - perhaps there is another brush for older babies?
Although, my son does enjoy holding his brush - as they are easy for an 8 month old's hand to grip onto. It is less likely to poke him in the eye which makes the set very safe and you don't have to worry about where to leave it. The comb makes a surprisingly good teether too, the plastic is hard and bowed to give a smooth and blunt edge.
I would reccommend this set if you are expecting a baby, but if you are shopping around and your baby is already a few weeks old, there probably isn't any point - unless that is, you want to buy it for a toy!

Comes in Lilac or Blue.
This is a baby brush and comb set. Our local Budgens sells them at £2, and in lilac or baby blue. I bought the lilac, but I don't suppose it reall makes a difference.
Baby brush and comb sets are all very similar. Small sizes, with very soft bristles on the brush and wide teeth on the comb. With my son I hardly used the comb, but my daughter has curly hair, and the comb does get her hair neater than just using the brush.
What differentiates the sets are the ease of use, the shape of the bristles, and the size and shape of the handle. The brush and comb are both very small, and I found the narrow rectangular shape of the brush took a little getting used to after using wider brushes, but it's actually very nice, especially if your baby has lots of hair early - for smaller heads, a smaller brush is brilliant. The short length of the comb tines is very useful for short hair especially very short tines.
The handles are very comfortable to hold, and my daughter can also hold them and pretend to brush her hair, which she finds hilarious (and means she's more likely to not complain when I do the brushing!)
I think this set holds its own against all the others I've tried, and the price is definitely right.
