I wish I had known about these with my daughter but will definitely be getting one for future children.
Kathe Kruse Rainbow Baby - Pink is a wonderful grabbing and teething toy. The beeswax-finished, beech wood ring will help soothe baby's tender gums. Since wood is a naturally anti-bacterial material, it is an ideal and safe teether for baby. Kathe Kruse, known for attention to detail, individually hand paints tender expressions on each doll. The wooden ring can be removed for washing and be easily re-attached.

Babies need something hard and safe to bite on while they are teething. Wooden rings like the one on Kathe Kruse Rainbow Baby - Pink, helps soothe their tender gums. Also, interesting textures provide sensory stimulation and associations (this surface is smooth, that surface is rough, this thing is hard), which help them begin to organize information in their disorganized young brains.
Kathe Kruse Rainbow Baby - Pink is handmade in Germany using Oeko-Tex certified cotton and dyes. Products bearing the Oeko-Tex certification have met the Oeko-Tex uniform, scientifically founded evaluation standard for the human ecological safety of textiles. Gaining this certification is important in an effort to address the globalized and extremely fragmented nature of the textile manufacturing chain.
