I love the idea but I think the beads are too big. My 9-month-old is interested in chewing on every thing but this because she cannot fit the large beads in her mouth.

Our Story

When my son started teething, I began to research the teethers available at places like Target and Babies R Us. Questionable plastics and worries over BPA, phthalates, and PVC, recalls, and the "big box" mentality of it all got me thinking that there must be a simpler and more natural solution. Enter my eco-friendly, natural wood and cotton teething necklaces and rings! I sewed up a couple teethers for my son, and soon other moms I met at playdates, the mall, and the park were asking me where they could buy one. Thus, the Sugar Cone Shoppe was born! I have tweaked my necklaces and teethers several times to make them "just right", and many babies around the country and the world enjoy playing and chewing on them.

I am lucky to be able to do something I love while staying home with my son (who, I am happy to report, now has eight teeth!). Please let me know if you have any questions or are interested in a custom order. If you have a favorite cotton fabric, send me a strip and I'll make an all natural wood, eco-friendly teething necklace or bracelet/ring. I also have ready-to-ship teethers in stock and a wide selection of custom fabric if you are looking for something specific. I look forward to working with you!

All teethers are made in my smoke-free home studio. I have two small hypoallergenic Yorkies, but they haven't shown any interest in my teethers. ❤

In June 2012, I made the choice to switch to a slightly smaller wood bead that makes it easier for baby to really bite down and gnaw on my teethers. You may notice that some of the photos in my listings still show the larger size bead. In order to make up for length, I now use seven beads instead of five. All new orders are being filled using the slightly smaller size bead, but if you prefer the larger size, just let me know when you place your order. ❤

Contact me if you're interested in a bulk or wholesale order.
