Baby Teething Toys

As babies begin teething, they will want toys that they can chew on. This is because chewing on the toys gives the babies some relief from the pain of teething. Baby teethers should be soft, flexible toys that allow babies of all ages to chew on them comfortably.

The best baby teethers offer massaging to the gums. Some baby teether toys also double as a rattle, squeaky toy or other type of baby toy. You can even find teething toys that are eco-friendly.

Best Baby Teething Toys

Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether

The Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether is the hottest baby teething toy on the market for 2016. This baby teether is not only a super cute giraffe, but it also squeaks. So, if chewing on it does not keep your baby occupied, playing with the toy will entertain the baby. This baby teether is also an eco-friendly option. It is BPA free and phthalates free.

Philips AVENT Range BPA-Free Front Teeth Teether

If you want a good teether that is designed just for the front teeth, you have found it. The Philips AVENT Range BPA-Free Front Teeth Teether is an excellent choice, and well rated by mothers everywhere.

This inexpensive front teeth teether comes in a light green color and it BPA free. It is also designed to be easy to hold by the baby.

Sassy Flutterby Teether

This butterfly shaped teether is one of my favorite teething toys. The Sassy Flutterby Teether has bright colors and is made of fairly soft plastic, which feels good for the baby when he chews on it.

The black and white striped handle makes it an easy to hold teether for even the smallest and youngest babies. This teething toy also promotes development for the baby.

Baby Einstein Caterpillar Rattle and Teether

The Baby Einstein Caterpillar Rattle and Teether is awesome because it is a teether and a rattle. And it is the cutest caterpillar shape I have ever seen! The handle of the caterpillar is filled with water, which means that you can pop it in the refrigerator. Babies love cold teething rings like this.

Since it has a rattle side and a teething side, this toy gives the baby lots of different textures to chew on.

Yellow Vulli Chan Pie Gnon Natural Rubber Soft Chew Toy

This is an impressive Vulli teether in yellow because it looks so quirky. It also comes in a slightly different variation in both pink and green. A great thing about it is that it is made of the super soft rubber. That means your baby will love to chew on it!

The Vulli Chan Pie Gnon teether also squeaks, which makes it a great toy for the baby to play with then she is not chewing on it. It is also non-toxic as it is BPA free.

Top Rated Baby Teethers:

Nuby Icybite Hard/Soft Teeting Keys

Best Baby Teethers

Nuby Icybite Hard/Soft Teeting Keys are easy for the baby to hold and chew on. It is also nice that you can freeze them to help with teething.

Almost every teether says that you cannot put it in the freezer (although most just ignore this and do it anyway). This is because they have water inside and when the water freezes hard, it expands and can damage the teether and/or cause leaking. This baby teether has gel inside so it doesn’t freeze hard, you can put it in the freezer and it gets super cold for your babies gums but not hard. And the box actually recommends use in the freezer. A “must have” baby teether for your baby!

Baby TeetherThis baby teether has rubber sides, and smooth plastic sides. Your little one can twist it around and have a good time smacking you and herself with it. But the baby will have a good time biting this one and waving it around and smacking herself with it.

Zo-li Gummy Stick Baby Gum Massagers

Wooden ABC Blocks for Kids

There are very few toys that manage to stand the test of time but wooden ABC blocks are definitely one of them.

In fact, alphabet blocks date back to the early 1700s when the first wooden blocks were crafted. Back then they were used as a teaching tool to help children learn to read and spell in an enjoyable, hands on way. Little did they know then, that centuries later, wooden alphabet blocks would still be at the forefront of childhood education.

But it isn’t all about reading and spelling. Alphabet blocks also encourage creativity and help develop fine motor skills as children experiment with abc building blocks structures. They have proven to be so successful as a teaching tool that they are now commonplace in schools and homes.

Wooden Alphabet Block Set

The great thing about wooden alphabet blocks is that, unlike many modern day toys, you don’t need a college degree to use them. Parents and grandparents are all too familiar with the colorful cubes that they also used to play with as children and have no problem joining in building games with their little ones.

In this way abc building blocks provide a much needed link between generations that might not otherwise be there. This interaction helps to bring families together while at the same time helping to build social and co-operative skills.

Wooden ABC Blocks with Wagon

As good as wooden blocks are, there are usually a lot of them in a set so packing them up can be a hassle for parents and carers. That’s where a wagon comes in handy.

These sets of blocks all come with a wagon (or cart) to keep them neat and tidy at the end of the day. Of course the wagon has benefits other than just a storage device. It is the perfect base from which to begin a abc building blocks structure, it encourages early movers to get mobile by dragging the wagon and its contents behind them. It can also be useful in teaching children to pack toys away neatly after they have finished using them. Well, that last one might just be wishful thinking!

Classic Embossed Wooden Blocks

Uncle Goose ABC Blocks:

Interactive Wooden Block Wagon

Winnie the Pooh ABC Singing WOOD WAGON

Fisher-Price toys rarely disappoint and this wooden block wagon is no exception. Not only does it contain blocks with letters and pictures on every side but it also talks and sings! Push on the Pooh figure on the wagon and he asks questions which encourage the child to interact in response. Press on the blocks next to Pooh and he sings the ABC song. This is a great educational toy that the kids will love.

Melissa & Doug Wooden Alphabet Blocks

Melissa and Doug are well known for creating quality children’s toys so it comes as no surprise that they would have a number of wooden alphabet sets in their range.

The Deluxe 50 piece set of melissa and doug abc blocks is a top seller because it contains a huge fifty blocks, more than almost any other set available. Be aware though, that the quantity comes at the expense of size. These blocks are just one inch square which is considerably smaller than most wooden blocks sold and may be too small for very young children.
