Baby Product Review! The Vintage Honey Shop’s Wooden Ring Teething Necklace, Part 2/3

Almost three weeks ago now, I typed up a blog post about how I had just ordered a handmade necklace from a website called The Vintage Honey Shop. I received it pretty quickly, it arrived from a bordering state in the mail in about a week, give or take. We’ll say take, because I really want to say that it only took about five days, but there may have been some weekend days in there that I’m forgetting to account for. vintage_honey_shop-vhjan2_17-0089_grande

This is the actual design that I ordered. The fabric is called Peachy Pink Cotton Blossoms.

I’ll start by saying that my little one is still too small to use this for teething purposes, but I’ll continue with my review because it seems like a promising product already anyway.

First off, the wooden teething ring. The site claims that this ring and the beads along the length of the necklace are made from organic wood. I can’t back that or deny it, I have no idea. I will say, however, that the ring is exceptionally smooth (the beads aren’t exposed) and feels very nice to the touch.

There are NO rough bits, edges, divots in the wood, etc. The fabric also feels very nice to the touch, very clean and new. You’ll probably want to work the necklace around a bit in your hands as it does feel stiff, though I’m not sure whether or not that will change or help.

I also like how the ends tie with a ribbon. Not the ribbon idea itself, as I’m not sure whether or not it will hold up and not unravel eventually, but the fact that you can tie it at different lengths depending on where you need it to come down to.

I’ve gotten my 1-Month baby to hold onto the ring itself while feeding, though that’s been all for now. I believe it’s a matter of training them with it as they get older, including popping the ring into their mouth to show them the example of chewing on it. I’ll keep putting her hands on it and when she can finally hold her head up on her own, I’ll be working on introducing her to the beads and the length of the necklace while I hold her. I truly believe that when she can be carried around and worn after she can hold her head up, that this necklace will be worth it’s weight in gold as a teething option, a toy and a visual for her to watch as the necklace moves around while it’s being worn.

I’ll make another post here in a month or so when she starts cutting teeth as an update to this review, though it’ll be in a different post.

Thanks for reading!

Baby Product Review! The Vintage Honey Shop’s Wooden Ring Teething Necklace, Part 1/3

I just sent off for one of the teething necklaces pictured below from The Vintage Honey Shop in the colorway Peachy Pink Cotton Blossoms. I haven’t received the shipping tracking code yet, so I’m not sure how long it will be before it arrives. Luckily, it’s from a state bordering mine, so hopefully it’ll be a quick mail delivery!

Now, to be honest, I probably wouldn’t have paid $30 for one of them if the silicone ones in every store weren’t already the same price. I wanted to get one of those silicone ones for the longest, but the price made me pause and then the fact that I wasn’t too sure about what they were made of or where they were made, with what standards. The ladies at tVHS claim that the wood used in their products is organic. It certainly looks nice and pretty in the pictures.

So basically, this post is a pre-product review post to let everyone know that there will be a review on one of these bad boys here soon!

(Also, it’s an easy thing to find a 15% off code for their site (check the blog link below), which made my order less than $32 with shipping).
