If you’ve been following our parenthood journey, you will already know that Archie has been suffering with teething pain from as young as two months old. We’re yet to find a product that really works at settling his gums while keeping him entertained too.
That’s why we were super excited to receive our very own Matchstick Monkey in the post.
The slimline design makes it easy to hold even for the smallest of hands, making it a great choice for those of you who have young babies suffering with teething pain. Due to its flexible nature, your baby can bend and flex the monkey to reach the source of pain with ease.
The monkey’s head also features a textured side which mimics a toothbrush. It’s perfect for applying teething gel or powder to, so that your baby can reach the back of their gums too. It also gets them used to the feeling of a toothbrush in their mouth for when those little teeth make their appearance, improving their oral hygiene from a young age.
The wide arms and silicone design help your little one to firmly grip and chew with ease. If your baby likes something cold in their mouth like Archie does, then this monkey can be popped in the freezer and brought out when your baby needs it. It can also be used in the dishwasher so you can be rest assured that it will always be safe for your baby to chew on.
There’s a total of seven colours to choose from, making this the perfect companion for your little one. We love our green monkey as it’s nice and bright so it always catches Archie’s eye.
I think it’s fair to say that both Archie and I are massive fans of Matchstick Monkey. As soon as I recognise that Archie is suffering from teething pain, our monkey is quickly on hand to relieve some of the pain for him. In fact, it’s not only used for teething pain, Archie enjoys playing with his monkey regardless. If it’s not in his hand, it’s easily accessible in our changing bag or even my handbag so that I can quickly get it out whenever I need to.
At only £9.99 it is significantly cheaper than a lot of other teething toys on the market and is most certainly worth every penny! Archie took to his monkey straight away and it never leaves his side. He loves chewing on it and even holding it while he sleeps (adorable). I couldn’t recommend this product enough!
