Bunny Teething Rings
Textured teething toys feature your choice of cotton jersey fabric backed with white cotton terry cloth.

Created in response to the needs of my teething infant, these "teething bunnies" are made from colorful and soft cotton knit jersey backed with white cotton terry cloth and completed with a cute little "tag" tail. The fabric is then knotted around a lead-free Nylon "Slingring", and stitched for security.

The ring is the perfect size for gripping with little hands, while the textured terry cloth is not only soothing to a little one's tender gums while gnawing, but also absorbent of the endless drool that often accompanies teething. The ears may also be dipped into water and placed in the freezer before use for cooling comfort, as well.

Machine Washable.
