WHAT IS IT?
A dummy by designer Ed Hardy.
This is a black dummy with tiger image drawn by Ed Hardy. It is a small dummy and made from a thick black plastic, it has a rubber appearance but is solid. The handle is loose so older babies can move and play with it. The tiger image is well done but the Ed Hardy logo is too bright for my taste because I am not a follower of Ed Hardy.
WHAT I THINK
I have used the self soothing method for my three babies and that requires a dummy as an object to latch on to when distressed. This size is designed from newborn to two years but I think it is too small for a two year old and only the correct size for large newborn babies, my daughter is seven weeks old and has been using this dummy since she was four weeks because the teat was a little bit too large when I tried it before.
My daughter likes the teat now and has become used to the shape quickly. It is easy for her to keep in her mouth and the plastic part of the dummy fits her small face comfortably without pressing her nose.
I do not like these Ed Hardy baby pieces in general because it is not a design I think is suitable for babies. I only use this dummy at home and carry a less conspicuous one for use when we are out. It is strongly made so I use it at bedtime and the teat feels very strong so if you use it for a baby with teeth they are not likely to bite through it.

This Black Tiger Dummy/Pacifier is another product that I treated my son to from the Ed Hardy baby range and it looks great! I love the Black Tiger Ed Hardy baby products and this dummy matches the bib that my son has. Obviously a dummy is a dummy, I know they all work the same! But this one is particularly nice to look at and my son is now at the stage where he is taking his dummy out of his mouth himself, looking and playing with it, then putting it back in his mouth. The Tiger pitcure on the front of the dummy catches my sons attention and he seems to enjoy looking at it.
The dummy is suitable for babies right from Newborn up to 2 years old, it does cost £9.99 on Amazon.co.uk which is expensive for a dummy, but you are of course paying for the Ed Hardy name. It is worth buying a pacifier clip to secure to your baby to prevent losing such an expensive dummy. The Ed Hardy pacifier clip to match the dummy is also available on Amazon.co.uk for £6.90, but you can get plain pacifier clips cheaper than that which you could also attach the dummy to.
This dummy always attracts nice comments from others and although it is pricey it would make a lovely gift for a baby or a nice treat for your little one.
