Created and designed by Jenny McLaughlan in 2010 to provide a modern solution to the age-old problem of teething. Inspired by her son and his painful teething experience Jenny thought it would be practical to always have a teether to hand. So she set about creating a range of stylish pieces of jewellery that looked great for mum, but would relieve baby teething troubles. These necklaces also make great nursing necklaces to help wandering hands have something to focus their attention on, as well as the perfect partner for babywearing. GUMIGEM® is a UK based family run business. Made from 100% medical grade silicone, so is soft and flexible. All our items are rigorously tested and you can have peace of mind that they are free from all nasty’s. They are totally non-toxic, BPA, lead latex and phthalate free. GUMIGEM® pendants can be removed from the cord and can easily be washed by hand with warm, soapy water or placed in a steam steriliser or the top shelf of the dishwasher. Our other necklaces can be washed by hand with soap and water or ran through the dishwasher for appropriate cleaning. With a breakaway clasp to provide an extra measure of security to mum and baby (the clasp should not be chewed). Our products make great baby shower gifts for an expected mother or can be used as a creative way to announce a new pregnancy to girlfriends, sisters or grandmothers that will also care for the baby! GUMIGEM® … for mum to wear and baby to enjoy! You may have seen GUMIGEM ® teething jewellery and teething toys on Dragons Den in August 2015, if you did, you will know the items were very well received!*Please note – necklaces and pendants are only to be interacted with by the baby when worn by an adult. They have a long cord and pose a strangulation risk, so must not be left alone with a baby and always worn by the adult – they are NOT toys.PEACE OF MIND – Finally a product that is OK to chew. Non Toxic 100% medical grade silicone – Easily cleaned in hot water or steriliser. Dishwasher safe. Silicone is naturally odourless so no chemical smell. Intended for adult to wear and baby to chew, saving your good jewellery and meaning you always have something to hand for a teething baby.
BREAKAWAY SAFETY CLASP – Secure fastening undone under pressure thus preventing injury to mum. Clasp is plastic, so no possibility of mummy or child having a reaction due to metallic clasps.
RISK-FREE GUARANTEE! – Use it for up to 30 days and if for any reason (or no reason at all) you are unhappy, let us know, and we will issue you a full refund.
FUNKY PENDANT DESIGN – The open heart is easy for babies and toddlers to grab and hold. The size is such little ones can play with it independantly off the cord too (just unknot and remove the cord). A stylish chewlery alternative to powder, gel, teether toys, rings, keys and animals like Sophie the giraffe. Makes a great baby shower gift.
ADJUSTABLE LENGTH – Comes long (drop approx 45cm) on a single super soft silky cord for maximum comfort, and prevents adults and kids fingers or hair from being entangled. Undo clasp and re-knot to your desired length to make it the ideal aid for wandering hands when nursing, breastfeeding or to keep them entertained when babywearing.
