Loved by babies all over the world, our original Matchstick Monkey is a winner for little ones, even before they start to teeth. BPA free, it’s made from flexible non-toxic food-grade silicone so your baby can chew to their heart’s content.

Matchstick Monkey is ergonomically designed to be easy for little hands to hold, so encourages babies to develop motor skills early on. Your little one can bring their Monkey to their mouths to chew independently. We all know how babies like to put things in their mouths, from their fists to your hair! Matchstick Monkey provides them with something safe and easy to chew, wherever they are.

Once your little one is teething, Matchstick Monkey helps soothe the pain because your baby can bite down right where it hurts! Your little one will naturally grasp the arms of the monkey to place the head on a sore spot to chew. It even safely gets to hard to reach molars.

Tiny bumps on the back of the head massage your baby’s gums and can also hold any medication in place until it hits the spot.

The original Matchstick Monkey can also be used as a pre-training toothbrush, to help your little one get in the habit of brushing their teeth.

Mini Monkey is the perfect teether for very young babies. Because it’s smaller and can be thrown or kept in a changing bag or handbag, it’s often used as a great on the go option! I love keeping one of these in my handbag, so we’re never caught without one when my little one gets grizzly.

This teether has all of the great features that the Original Matchstick Monkey teether has, but it also has added BioCote Antimicrobial technology throughout. This reduces microbes on the surface of the teether to make it even more hygienic, especially when you’re on the go.

The different textures also provide sensory stimulation and help soothe sore, irritated gums.

If you’re looking for a pre-training toothbrush, Mini Monkey does have massaging bumps on the back of his head, but you might want the Original or an Animal Teether for this purpose as they’re a little larger.
