Chicco Elephant Teething Blanket
Advantages: Soft, cute elephant
Disadvantages: Too expensive for what it is
I bought my son this elephant teether months ago, he was around 4 months old and was just starting to hold things. I got it on offer for £5.50, and it is currently selling in Asda, where I bought it, at £6.59. This toy is well overpriced for what it is, and I would pay no more than £3.50 if I was to buy it again. Tesco do lots of teething toys for this price, and I think this is more of a reasonable price for this toy. I think you are paying more just because it is by Chicco.
This is a blue elephant teething toy. It is bigger than it looks online, it isn't a small elephant, I would say it is around 20cm big. This blanket does feel really nice and soft, but it doesn't feel brilliant quality. It is quite thin, although the good thing about it, is that is machine washable, which is essential with most of my son's toys as his dribbles all over them, or he is sick or gets food or drink all over them! It has lasted well through several washes in the washing machine, but doesn't look as new.
This has a plastic handle for your baby to grip this elephant, my son likes to chew on this part sometimes, but doesn't really use it as a handle, although it is an easy to grip handle for little hands. He chews on the actual soft material sometimes if I give it to him but overall he isn't really interested in this toy. It would be much easier and probably cheaper to give him a proper blanket to chew on and the elephant doesn't interest him. He looks at it and picks it up, but I think he much prefers noisier and more interactive toys.
It's a shame my son doesn't take much interest in this toy, as it was one of the most expensive teethers I bought, most are slightly cheaper than this one. It is a cute elephant, and it looks nice on my son's shelf with his teddies, which is where it lives now, as he takes so little interest in it! He looked at it more when he was a bit younger, he is only 9 months old now, and I think he knows there are more interesting toys to be playing with! He does quite often chew on the elephants nose if anything, this part is a bit tougher to chew than the rest of it.
I don't think the material is really that good for teething babies, I think rubber or plastic teethers, or ones you can put in the fridge are much better. The elephant isn't that bright, but they are nice pastel colours, and this could be for either boy or a girl, but the colours don't seem bright or stimulating enough to keep my little man interested with it. I wouldn't buy this again or recommend it, although other babies may love it, mine didn't unfortunately, and there are lots of other better teethers out there than this one!
Summary: There are much better teethers than this one for your money!
