      5 stars

      I bought a pack of these teethers for my grandson when he was teething and they really helped to soothe his pain.

      The pack that we bought had two teethers in and they were in the shape of stars. One was bright orange, the other green so they were ideal for a boy but could also be uni-sex too. They are made by Tommee Tippee which I know as being a very good band so thought they would be good quality.

      When I took them out of the packet I noticed how firm they were and definitely thought they were good quality. They could be squeezed a little bit so when your child chews on them they would squeeze down a bit but only to an extent so that they still are firm on the gums.

      They are filled with water which means that you can put them in your fridge or freezer to cool them down. Having a cold teether gives more relief to your teething child. The coldness on their gums helps to soothe the soreness and reduce some swelling.

      When I put these in the freezer the water inside froze. Before giving them to my grandchild I'd make sure they had warmed up a bit so that it wasn't freezing cold but just moderately cold against his gums.

      I noticed that my grandson was able to hold these himself and would enjoy chewing on them. They did seem to reduce his pain as he wouldn't grumble as much afterwards and seemed more comfortable. I wouldn't say that they took away the pain completely or that the effects lasted a particularly long time but they did give him some relief which is the main purpose of them.

      They are able to be washed thoroughly as they are just plastic so you can get them in your steriliser so ensure they're clean enough to be gnawed upon.

      I do rate them, they definitely helped soothe teething pain and they are nice and bright so looked just like a toy. They cost me £1.99 which I think is a bargain.

      Disadvantages

      decent teether

      When my son was a baby, he was a very bad teether. He would wake constantly in the night and, during the day he would always be chewing on something - often this would be his finger. In an attempt to ease his discomfort and help him through this difficult spell, we bought a vast array of teethers and teething products. One of the ones we tried were these waterfilled teethers by Tommee Tippee.

      The teethers we purchased were a start shape rather than the fruit pictured above. They cost around £2 for a pack of two teethers - so were quite reasonable value. The pack we bought had a blue star and a green star (for boys) but there is also a pack with a pink and an orange star (girls version). The teethers are made from plastic (BPA free) and are filled with water. Therefore, you can chill these in the fridge to make them cool for baby's gums. It is ideal that they come in a pack of two as you can chill one whilst the other one is in use.

      The teethers are brightly coloured so very appealing to baby. The surface of the star also has various bumps and ridges - the texture appeals both to baby's touch and helps their gums when they bite down on these. The stars are about the size of baby's palm so fit neatly into their hand. They can also be gripped easily as they have a hole through the middle.

      We gave these to my son as soon as he learnt to grip things. He could hold these nicely although, when they first came out of the fridge, they were a little cold for him and he didn't really want to pick them up. This somewhat defeats the purpose of having the cooling function as, by the time my son was happy enough to put this into his mouth, it had warmed up substantially. He did like to bite on these, especially when his front teeth were cutting. However, they are an awkward shape for back teeth and he could not really fit enough of the star into his mouth to really be of any help with these.

      They are robust and are also easy to clean. They do not stay cool for very long so I would be swapping these around constantly throughout the day - and therefore cleaning them up a lot. They are also quite thin so would end up under the sofas constantly.

      Overall, I would say that these are ok. They are priced quite cheaply and I guess you get what you pay for. The idea of them being filled with water is good but didn't work particularly well for us in practice. We have certainly had better teethers, but equally we have had worse - these are somewhere in the middle.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great product for a fantastic price

      I look after my niece a lot, and when she was teething her mum gave me a packet of the teethers to keep on hand for when Ellie became upset and needed something to soothe her mouth. I was immediately taken by the innovative design and range of shapes and colour the Tommee Tippee product offered, and as well as being practical they are also educational in this respect.

      The teethers come in a pack of two, and are brightly-coloured with fruit designs. To me they looked cool ad refreshing, although I think my niece probably did not appreciate the design element so much. The teethers also have a textured design, so children can make use of the various bumps and ledges should they need to. What really makes this product stand out against other teethers is the fact that they are filled with water. This worried me a little at first, as I felt that Ellie may possibly puncture one of them and choke on the water inside. However, they do have a durable covering and the company have clearly considered this problem, and used a material that will not rupture easily. Even so, I watched her carefully when she used the teethers just to make sure my fears were not realised.

      The idea behind the twin pack is that one of the teethers can be being used by the baby while the other can be cooling in the fridge, ready for when the other one is no longer sufficiently cool. This cuts down on the time the child experiences discomfort, and also means you have a spare in case something happens to one of the products. The teethers have a space in them for the child to grab the teether firmly to themselves, and this gives them a lot more control when using the teether. Ellie seemed to enjoy this, and the teether certainly cut down on her misery during the time she was teething. Holding the teether and examining its interesting surface and colour seemed to provide her with a distraction from her pain, too.

      A pack of two Tommee Tippee teethers usually costs £1.99 - £2.40, and they are available from most large chemists and pharmacies, as well as online companies. The teethers are durable and inexpensive, as well as being visually delightful. I have also found that they are very good at retaining their coolness, even when being touched by the baby's mouth and hands for a long period. At such a great price they delivered a lot more than I had expected, and I have not seen any other teethers with a similar design.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Cheap & Cheerful Soothers.

      With a small baby in the house items like this are being bought/used and generally lying around all the time because every baby at some point will need a product like this. Alfie has a few different teethers around at the moment but a few weeks ago my mom bought these because she felt he now (at 7 months and about to get his first tooth any second) needed something sturdier that would actually help relieve the pain rather than just become another toy to play with and so she (with my help) settled on these "Tommee Tippee Waterfilled Teethers" as we had both heard really good things about them and heard that they actually help. Now we've had them around for a few weeks I have to say I dont know how any of us lived without them because they really have helped Alfie and been a godsend for me personally when Ive been babysitting!

      Useful Information:
      Price: We paid 99p for 2 teethers.
      Stockists: Ours came from 99p shop but Ive also seen them sold in Poundland and on amazon - although they are slightly more expensive on amazon.
      Other Info: These rings can be put in the fridge for extra comfort but are never to be frozen as the water will force the plastic to explode!

      *You are supposed to get 2 teethers in the set: a green bunch of grapes and a strawberry - we do have two but they are both grape shaped only different colours - shame because the strawberry one looks really cute!*

      As anyone who has been around a teething baby will tell you they can be quite happy one moment and then in real pain the next but with these that hasnt really been a problem. The small hole makes it easy for a baby to hold the teether themselves which I think is great because in the past we have had to hold the teether in place and these just make it so much easier. Im not all together sure putting them in the fridge makes to much of a difference because Alfie has had these both cold and at room temperature and they seem to work really well both ways so if you want to give your baby one of these straight away I think thats fine because they are just as effective either way.

      Another thing is that even though these are very cheap that doesnt make them poor quality as they seem to be made of very sturdy plastic. We had one a few months back that actually split as soon as Alfie bit into it which I think you'll agree is quite bad but these ones dont show any signs of that at all and Alfie happily chews these for hours without showing any signs that he is teething at all so I would definately say they have worked for us. They are very basic with no frills but they do the job and help relieve some of the pain caused by teething and thats all anyone really wants.

      They are also very easy to transport and believe me they can be a real godsend on long car journeys as if Alfie is anything to go by babies will just sit there very content chewing on this teether and not in any obvious pain at all. They are cheap and they are very effective at helping babies who are teething so I highly recommend them if your looking for something simple and basic that will help. They wont break, are cheap, nice enough to look at and will keep a baby quiet and happy for hours!

      I definitely recommend. Thanks For Reading.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      FOR THE PRICE YOU CAN'T GO WRONG.

      When my children were teething, I was almost obsessed with trying different soothing teethers. I wanted to have a variety so that I could make sure that there was always one to hand during a painful episode of the dreadful experience that is teething.

      I have written a couple of reviews on teethers. However, these Tomee tippee waterfilled teethers are at the cheaper end of the teething products price range. However they did seem to offer a good deal of support to my babies when teething.

      These teethers are a nice big size almost the size of the baby's palm. They have a great handle on the side which my baby's found really beneficial as they could get a firmer grasp on the teether. These teethers are made in the shape of different fruits. They are indeed really colourful and cute in appearance. Each variety has different textures so that baby can have some relief by rubbing thier gums along the ridges.

      There is water inside each of the teethers. This can be put in the fridge and cooled. I found that this offered my baby a huge amount of relief. The coolness of the teether on the gums was enough to stop my son from being fretful and settle him into a more relaxed and painfree state.

      However, my daughter did not like the cold sensation against her gums and would become very cross. I think this coldness was too much and made her gums even more sensitive. So I suppose it is only effective on certain baby's preferences.

      These Tomee Tippee waterfilled teethers seem to maintain thier cold temperature better than more expensive teethers when removed from the fridge. I found this very useful and convenient as I didn't have to keep running back and forth to the fridge. I also found that these teethers had a firmer texture which offered a much more stimulating effect on the gums. I believe this is due to the fact that these rings are indeed filled with water.

      I bought my Tomee Tipee Teethers from my local chemist for around £2. I found that although they were effective in easing teething pain they didn't last very long as they began to loose thier shape and due to constant knawing they began to look shabby.

      I think these teethers are excellent to pop in your baby bag if you are going out. Because they are cheap and cheerful but also effective. I really like these teethers as they did work well for my children. Although my son had much more success with his than my daughter. She was not overly keen on this teether although she did take great intrest in the colour and feel of this product.

      As far as teethers go, I don't think these are the best on the market. But due to thier cheap price I think that they are certainly great value for money.

      Disadvantages

      See review

      When I had my baby, one of the stages other mums would warn me about was the teething stage and how hard it can be, so its safe to say I was absolutely dreading it!! In preparation I purchased a few different types of teethers just to be on the safe side, thinking that at least one of them would be suitable and enjoyable for my daughter. How lucky was I that teething was an absolute breeze and not once did my fantaastic baby girl even wimper about her teeth coming through so I needn't have worried in the slightest!

      I did however still give her the teethers that I had bought, and the tommee tippee waterfilled teether is the only one she bothered with the odd time so this is why I thought I would review this particular one.

      These tommee tippee teethers are stage one only, they are to cool and soothe hot little gums and not for use when teeth are through.

      The teethers came in a pack of two, which I bought from my local chemist for a couple of pounds. In the pack there was a green grapes teether and a red strawberry teether. There is an easy to hold handle on each of the fruity teethers which is great for little hands! They are plastic coated and filled with water, and can be put in the fridge to cool them down ready for baby. When they are cold your baby can have a right good chew and work their gums on the cool ridged plastic, i'm not sure which they prefer as I think both have a good effect on their gums. One thing my daughter did seem to like was rubbing her gums along the teethers and making a squeaking sound, there were quite a few giggles from her doing this!

      I like that there were two in the packet as you can always have one in the fridge cooling while your baby is having a good old chew on the other one. Strangely my daughter wasn't really keen on the strawberry one and when she wanted a chew she always wanted the grapes!

      The teethers are extremely easy to clean, I always gave them a good wash in warm soapy water, making sure to give an extra rinse but they can also be sterilised but it must be cold sterilisation only! It is important not to put the teethers in the freezer so they should only be cooled in a fridge.

      As I said, I was lucky enough to have no use for this other than a bit of fun for my daughter, and I was happier at her chewing these rather than a hard toy! My main reason for purchasing these particular teethers was purely for the fact they are made by Tommee Tippee which is a trusted company and have 50 years experience in babycare.

      I would recommend these teethers, they are good quality, bright coloured and easy for your baby to hold. At around £2.00 I think you get a decent bargain as they really are good for babies and I think it shows you don't need to spend a large amount to get a good teething ring.

      Thank you for reading my review :)

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      -

      Any Mother will know what it is like when a child starts teething. Dribble starts forming and turns into the Niagra Falls and there is the constant chewing of anything. When my daughter was teething, she settled on trying to chew her hands so I had to get her something to chew on.

      I found the Tommee Tippee Waterfilled Teethers in Tesco one day when I was on a hunt for one. It was a pack of two like the ones in the picture; one was a pink strawberry and the other was a green bunch of grapes. They cost me £1.60 for two which I thought was a bargain at the time. I have a feeling they were on offer. Both teethers also have a hole in them so that your child can hold on to them whilst they are biting them.

      To make these teethers soothing for your baby's gums, you need to put it in the fridge to chill the water inside it. Once you think it is cool enough for your baby, you simply take it back out of the fridge and give it to your child. My daughter did not need any prompting or instruction for use! She shoved it between her gums and bit down and chewed. It seemed to relieve the pain for her. My daughter started teeting at 5 months old, so I used to put it in the sterilser at first as baby's under 1 need everything sterilised.

      My daughter never managed to chew through the teethers so they are very strong and sturdy.

      These were great value for money and lasted well. even when my daughter chewed them, nothing came off of them nor did she manage to break them. They are very strong and we a good investment. Recommended!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Excellent aid for parents

      Anyone who has a child understands the nightmare that is teething. I have four children, three of which have gone through teething. I think I have been quite lucky in that none of my children have had that bad a time when they have got their first teeth, but still needed something to help sooth my baby's gums when they were sore. These water filled teethers did the job.

      I have two packs of these teethers which are plastic coated with water inside which can be put in the fridge or freezer to cool them down. Once they have been cooled, the baby can chew on them to their heart's content. The fact that they have been cooled seems to sooth the baby and my babies seem to like chewing the plastic outer covering.

      The fact that there are two in each pack, means that one can be cooling whilst one is being used so your baby can always have a freshly cooled teether to sooth their sore gums. My teethers have been well used and show no major signs of wearing out. They are very durable and the plastic coating hasn't deteriorated at all even though three out of my four children have used them.

      As the teethers are plastic coated they are easily washed using normal washing up liquid and can also be sterilised to get rid of any germs or bugs.

      One disadvantage is that the coolness doesn't last very long after you have taken them out of the fridge, but that is why I have two packs of them as it means I can have three cooling whilst one is being used.

      I fully recommend these to anyone who has a baby that is teething as it will give you some peace and they are very good value for money.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Workwonders

      These are so useful when your little one is teething. They are little tough, plastic shapes filled with water. They work wonders especially when you pop them in the fridge for a while before using them as they help cool down the gums. Considering how inexpensive they are they really do a great job. You get two in the pack which is handy as you can always have one cooling while the other is in use. My daughter did find it a bit tricky to hold them at first so i tended to do it for her. She now has the hang of it though and will sit chewing on them for ages. You can get lots of different shapes and colours in lovely little designs. We got ours for about two pound for a pack of two in tesco but you can get them almost anywhere for a similar price. For a couple of pounds there a must buy just for the peace and quiet factor

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A perfect break from the pain.

      Every parent knows that teething is absolutely horrible for both yourself and your baby. When my bubba started teething at about 6 months, she turned from a happy little angel to completely miserable and there was very little I could physically do to help her for the duration but give teething rings for short pain relief and apply bonjela.

      The Tommee Tippee water filled rings are great for a little pain relief, they cost £2 for a pack of two and they come in different sizes, shapes, textures and colours.

      They are made of solid thick rubber/plasti material that is filled with water inside them, you just pop them in the fridge to chill or put them in the freezer if you want them extra cold and take them out and they are ready to be chewed on. The cold seems to numb the pain and distract baby for a bit. My daughter also liked to just wave them around in the air but they fit well into babys mouth and hit the spot.

      These are easy to wash, they can be popped into the steriliser to kill any germs they may have picked up or if baby isn't really chewing them you can wash them with normal washing up liquid. Personally I prefer to sterilise as they get dropped all the time and my daughter put literally everything in her mouth.

      They are great value and provide instant relief. I would definitely buy these again.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great toy, but not really used for their intended purpose!

        I bought these teethers at the first sign of teething with my daughter (now 10 months). My son (now 10 years) had loved the cool teethers, and I was hoping for the same reaction. Sadly, despite the fact that she's now got 5 teeth, the teething rings have never really gone in her mouth.

        They're a great toy for her. She loves to hold one and wave it around, maybe bang it on things. We got two of the bunch-of-grapes shaped teether, the only pack available in my local Boots (and in fact it's only when I read other people's reviews that I realised that they came in different shapes!) Brightly coloured and cheerful, my daughter really enjoys them. However, these teething rings are one of the few toys that rarely make it into her mouth. The fundamental flaw in them is that they're too wide to fit into her tiny mouth.

        Having said that, she does enjoy them, they're cheap and cheerful, easy to wash and sterilise, so I do think they were worth buying, and worth trying for yourself.

        Editted to add: My lovely daughter is teething again, and has decided that actually, these are useful for chewing after all. So maybe I spoke too soon on saying they're not so useful. Sorry!

        Disadvantages

        Would recommend

        As any mother will know (or will find out) teething is a horrible time for their babies and anything you can do to ease the pain a little bit will help the process. I bought the Tommee Tippee Waterfilled Teethers from Asda for about £2.50 along with a load of other teething equipment (i.e. teething gel, more dummies, Calpol). The moment I gave one of these to my son, I could see that it gave him great relief and he chomped away on it for a few minutes, however, as he was only about three and a half months old, he could not hold it in his mouth for long, so I had to sit there and help him. He is now six months old and he still uses them and can now hold them himself and therefore saves me lots of time sitting with him. However, I would state that the only stay cold for a maximum of five minutes and then you have to go back to the fridge to get the other one and so on.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        great to help with the pain

        Teething is one of the worst times in a childs and parents life. You spend most of the time feeding them medicine to take away the pain rubbing their gums with bonjella, but there is nothing that can be done to really help but there are aids that take that pain away for the child for short periods of times, and gives the parent a break from screaming.

        The tommee tippee waterfilled teather is good for helping this problem. When I was pregnant with my first child I got things very early to make sure I had everything you usually find out after that you hadnt got everything though. They only cost £2 for a pack of two and come in different colours and shapes and the textures of them are different too.

        The way these work is that they are made out of a solid rubbery type of material that is filled with water inside you can put them in the fridge to keep them cool so when your child is needin the little comfort to ease that pain you can just grab and go. If you need a fast action you can put them in the freezer for ten minutes that will get them cooler faster and they do seem to get more cold this way than in the fridge.

        They are easy to wash with normal washing liquid swill them clean and you can pop them in the sterilizer to get rid of any unwanted germs.

        My son never really got the use out of his due to being a fast teether but my daugher used them all the time. They are great price wise and do help the child with the pain I would give them a 5/5.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        all round good quality

        Tommee Tippee Water filled Teethers

        When I was pregnant with my son I had an obsession with 'stocking up' on everything I might need for him (five years ahead of myself)
        I purchased two packets of these as my mother had informed me I was a ferocious tether from a very young age.
        I paid about £1.90 from Tesco's, and I was drawn by the bright nice colours and also the tommee tippee name.

        In the pack contains two water filled soft but tough rubber teethers.
        One is green grapes and the other is a pinky/red strawberry.
        They have a hole in the middle for easy use for baby although my son started teething at 3 weeks and dint have the hand eye coordination to hold it to his mouth himself.

        I like the idea you can just pop them in the fridge to give a cooling effect on the gums although you should really pop them in sterilized solution with a lid then put them in the fridge for babies under a year.
        In all I think these are great to have for teething little ones and would highly recommend them.

        Also to note my dog got hold of one and dint manage to break the rubber so im guessing they are very very sturdy.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great value for money

          Anyone with children will know what a nightmare teething is! My son started teething when he was roughly 5 months old and cut his first tooth when he was 6 months. When he started teething he went from being a happy baby to being downright miserable!! This is more than understandable as I can imagine it must be very painful for them to cut their first front teeth.

          I used Anbesol and calpol when necessary to try and ease his pain, but I noticed that he was biting down on any object that he could get hold of and that when he was biting this seemed to ease his pain slightly, however I didn't want him to bite on something that would hurt his gums or make them any sorer than what they already were.

          I decided to purchase a teething ring for him and discovered the Tommee Tippee water filled teething rings from Asda so purchased a pack of 2 for £1.89. Tommee Tippee do teethers for all different ages and stages, the water filled teethers are stage 1, so are for the very first signs of teething, before the teeth even start to come through. As they are filled with water they are designed to go in the fridge before use to cool down the water and soothe your little ones sore gums. Tommee Tippee also do teethers for stages 2,3 and 4, stage 2 being the first 4 front teeth, stage 3 being the middle teeth and stage 4 being the difficult back teeth.

          As previously mentioned you get two teethers in a pack, the teethers I got were green and red and shaped like a bunch of grapes! They both have a little hole in them so that baby can hold the teether easily.

          When I got them home i immediately put one of them in the fridge to cool down, it advises you on the packet that you shouldn't put these in the freezer and should only place them in the fridge to cool down.

          I left it in there for a good hour and it was lovely and cool when I removed it. I then handed it to my son, he didn't quite know what to do with it at first but I moved it towards his mouth, he then started to chew on it, I think he was quite surprised at how cold it was at first but once he started to bite down on it he then realised that it helped to soothe his sore gums. He then continued to bite down on it for ages and I could see in his little face that it was easing the pain of his sore gums.

          My son continued to use the teether for the next few months throughout the time that his front teeth started to make an appearance. I thought these teethers were excellent value for money as I never needed to replace them and they still look as good as new now!
