A teething child can seem more monster than cub. The long days and even longer nights, the crying, the screaming – it can almost be too much for an exhausted parent to bear. Luckily RiNGLEY (http://www.ringleynaturalteethingtoys.com)
Called ZooLEY, the new line of soothing teethers was inspired by the “wild” animals found in nature: the elephant, turtle and monkey.
"My children were truly wild when they were teething,” says Shaindy Alexander, creator of RiNGLEY. “Each one of them had a special stuffed animal that they loved to snuggle and find comfort with. That’s the main goal of this new line.”
The new toys combine all of the elements parents have come to love and trust about RiNGLEY’s award-winning products.
Each teether is made with 100 per cent certified organic cotton terrycloth as well as
untreated, naturally antibacterial Maple wood, two items which are safe and soothing for children to suck on as they cope with the soreness of teething.
The products are made with Velcro, which means the softer, terrycloth parts of the toy can be removed and cleaned in the washing machine. And, like all RiNGLEYs, the new ZooLEY line is entirely BPA-free and contains no PVC or parabens.
“People are catching on to the fact that what children put in their mouths can be harmful to them. Mothers and fathers are taking time to read labels and educate themselves about what they are exposing their children to,” adds Alexander. “I’m excited babies and toddlers will be able to play with, gnaw on and snuggle up to the toys in our latest line!”
