We received a necklace from Little Sunshine Boutique for review. We were not otherwise compensated for this post and all opinions are our own. Gwendolyn Mayfield is the owner and designer for Little Sunshine Boutique. She’s a mother of four and her children have been her inspiration for her designs. There are so many beautifully designed necklaces! I decided to let my 4 year old pick which one since we’re past the teething stage and this would be used more for sensory purposes.
My son has been in a chewing phase, so he chews on his clothing a lot. He also has some sensory issues, so I thought this would be perfect for him to test out. He decided on the Child Rainbow Silicone Sensory Necklace! He’s pretty obsessed with rainbows, so this was no surprise. We received the one with the turquoise ring on it. The sensory necklace has knots in between each bead for extra safety. The beads on the necklace are 100% silicone beads which are similar to pacifiers and nipples. They are FDA approved and contain no BPA, phthalates, cadmium, lead, or metals.
Every necklace is brand new and comes in a sealed package. They are also very easy to clean and are dishwasher safe! Each necklace has a breakaway clasp for that extra safety, which is really important. These necklaces are around 20 inches long and have a very nice fit. Not only do they make great teething necklaces, they make wonderful sensory tools and would make the perfect gift!
Safety notes: before allowing your child to wear the necklace, you should wash and inspect it. You should also discard the necklace at the first signs of damage. We’ve been using our beautiful rainbow necklace for a while now. My 4 year old is absolutely obsessed with it. As is his younger brother, but my four year old doesn’t enjoy sharing his “special necklace” with his little brother.
If I forget to bring his necklace with us, he gets upset with me. One day when I forgot it he informed me he would chew on his jacket since I forgot his rainbow necklace at home. So, I think it’s safe to say that this necklace has been a huge hit in our house. There are so many adorable necklaces on her site. There are so many different necklaces that I’m swooning over! I may need some more for myself, er, uh, my children.
Head on over to her website and shop for teething necklaces. Also follow along on the Teething Necklace Mom Facebook page, @ Little2sunshine on Twitter and check out Little Sunshine Boutique on Instagram!
