Nuby Teething Blankie
Advantages: Easy for little hands to grip
Disadvantages: None for us
Jayden is currently suffering a bit with teething, whilst we have purchased him some gel for his gums he cannot have this applied all of the time, also recently he is trying to chew on everything whether its his hands or his clothes, he will often chew on his hands and then cry so when I was shopping in a large Tesco recently I spotted the Nuby Teething Blankie, it was cute, colourful and also had areas on it which Jayden could safely chew on to help sooth his sore gums.
The Nuby Teething Blankie comes attached to a large rectangle card, one half of the car is yellow and spotty, at the top of the name Nuby written in red with the words Teething Blankie written just underneath, the right hand sides taken up with a picture of a baby, also on the right hand side is various bits of information about the product including the age group that this is suitable for, right at the bottom of the card it states "N Every Step of the Way". The back of the card is split in two halves, white and yellow, this contains the product information including information about the product, the contents, care instructions and warnings about the packaging material. It also shows different Nuby Teething Blankies that are available, there is also a logo to show that this product was awarded the Baby and Pregnancy Editors Chocie Design Award in 2010.
The Teething Blankie
The Nuby Teething Blankie is basically a small square teething blanket, it is square and made up of different coloured sections, the back of the blankie and the border on the front is a deep purple, the front is also divided up into four sections there is a red and orange patterned section, a blue and green one, a green and yellow one and a yellow and orange section. These sections are made from a soft yet tough fabric, three of the sections are slightly padded and the fourth section is filled with a crinkly material, this section also has a small fabric badge sewn onto it with the word Nuby inside.
Along one edge of the blankie are small pieces of ribbon sewn into the seam, these are different colours including yellow, red, purple, green and orange, right in the centre of the blankie is the head of a bear, the bear is blue and cream with a large pink nose and a smiley face, if you squeeze the head it squeaks, the face is made from a felt type material which gives your baby a different texture to feel even if they are unable to make the head squeak themselves.
In all four corners are what look like plastic paws, these are red, orange, green and purple, these are made from a smooth plastic and has small raised star shapes on them which gives your baby different textures to chew on.
The Teething Blankie is approximately 9inchs square making it an ideal size for your baby, the bright colours and different textures are designed to catch your baby's attention, this product is suitable for baby's from 3 months onwards. The idea of this product is that it incorporates both a teethe and a blanket all in one making it ideal to sooth your baby's sore gums or to comfort your baby at nap time.
The contents of the product is stated on the back of the card, it includes paper cellophane, this is in the section which crinkles, the other sections contain 100% polyester fibres. The information also states that this product meets or exceeds the governments standards.
As with all children's toys there are warnings on the back of the packaging, this states that you should never leave a child unattended with this toy or any other stuffed toys, this is quite standard for this type of toy however there are no real small parts which could come off of the teething blankie and cause a choking hazard.
This is something that I have not really seen on the back of a toys packaging before, however this information states that the packaging should be remove immediately as it may cause a choking or suffocation hazard to your child. The information also states that the packaging may contain small parts such as bags, safety pins ribbon, tape and plastic tags, the only thing that this product had was small plastic tags which attached the teething blankie to the card.
The Nuby Teething Blankie is easy to care for, you simply need to wipe it clean with a mild soap and damp cloth and allow to air dry, this product should not be immersed in water and is not suitable microwave or steam sterilisation, you also cannot put this product into the washing machine to clean it.
Price and Availability
The Nuby Teething Blankie is available from a variety of stores including Boots, Asda and Tesco, we purchased ours from Tesco and it cost us £3.95, however the price does vary a little depending on where you purchase it from, I have seen it sold for £4.99, Tesco is the shop where it seems to be sold at the cheapest price.
The Nuby Teething Blankie is definitely a product I would recommend, Jayden loves his teething blankie, he finds with some teething products they are a bit difficult for him to hold or a bit big for his mouth, however this product is easy for him to manage, as it is a blanket and a lot thinner he can easily grip it and keep hold of it whilst getting it to his mouth, he doesn't drop it half way there and then get frustrated because he cannot do it.
The blankie is an ideal teether as you baby can happily and safely chew on it and also use it as a soother during naps. The product is of an excellent quality and made to a high standard, it is very good value of money and can be purchased cheaply from a variety of shops. As well as using it as a teether Jayden loves looking at the different bright colours and the feel of the different textures of the material, at the moment he cannot make the bears face in the middle squeak but he loves it if we do it for him and smiles every time. I am glad we purchased this for Jayden as he has had a lot of use out of it and it has helped with his teething as it gives him something manageable to chew on to help relieve his sore gums, this is definitely a product I would recommend.
Summary: A nice little teething blankie
