The Top Teethers for Your Baby Geek

Lil’ G-Man still has no teeth, but he drools like Niagara and loves to put just about anything and everything in his mouth. Watch your fingers around this little guy! So we decided to save our knuckles and stock up on some epic teethers. Here are our top choices for geeky teethers.

Bumkins – DC Comics Silicon Teether Combo Pack – Superman & Batman

Why have one superhero teether when you can have two? Bumkins really nails it with their superhero line-ups and the silicone makes it really easy to clean. For little girl geeks (or boys who think she’s awesome), they also have Wonder Woman, but not part of a set. Lil’ G has Batman because we purchased before we knew we could get in a two-pack.

Bumkins Nintendo Silicone Teether, Game Boy

Did I mention how much I love Bumkins and how I think they’re super cool? They also show their geek love toward retro gaming with the Game Boy teether. You can also get a Nintendo NES remote, but the Game Boy is just too amazing not to get. And if Lil’ G ever gets interested in Game Boy, we still have a fully functioning system in black & white and everything!

Little Toader Teething Toys, Baconease Appe-Teethers

Mmm…bacon. Not sure exactly how it happened but bacon has somehow made its place in geeky culture (much like the beloved Mountain Dew). This bacon-shaped teether is sure to get you plenty of looks when out in public. And love the name – Baconease, not to get confused with the condiment Baconnaise. (which is awesome)

MyBoo Autism/Sensory/Teething Chewable Dragon Pendant – Green

While not quite as intimidating as Dany’s Drogon, all fantasy geeks need to have their own dragon chew toy. This dragon comes in a pendant format (with a safe, breakaway clash) so mommy or daddy can also look stylish. Ok, so maybe not stylish, but it’s better than a lot of teething necklaces on the market!

Fresh Baby So Easy First Teether, Green

So while this teether isn’t technically a sword – it’s a SWORD! It has little nubbies on the top to soothe gums and feel like a baby toothbrush, and a guard so that your baby isn’t the next greatest sword swallower.

Sugarbooger Silicone Teether, Retro Robot, 2 Count

So not exactly sure what a sugar booger is, or if I’d ever care to know (seriously – who approved that name for a company?), but these retro robots are pretty adorable. They feel very Mystery Science Theater 3000 to me, or even a little bit of Jetsons action. Just don’t think about boogers when you baby chews on these!

G-Tested Product Review: Little Tikes 2-in-1 Snug n’ Secure Swing

Lil’ G-Man recently got the Little Tikes 2-in-1 Snug n’ Secure Swing to use on his swing set. Even better, while normally about $26, Amazon Prime members can get it for $17.23 at the time of this article! The swing comes in blue or pink (G got the blue) and takes about a minute to put together. No idea how they make money on this – it’s also made in the USA.

It’s technically made for babies 9 months and older (up to 4 years/50 pounds), but we gave it a try a little early. The T-bar comes up to keep your baby secure and two shoulder straps further secure the swing.┬áThe fit seemed great for little G even though he’s on the smaller end (we tried it as early as 6.5 months and 17 pounds).

The T-Bar can be removed as he gets older and can secure himself, but we’ll have it in there for a while. The yellow rope straps connected perfectly with the attached s-shaped hook to our swing set. If you don’t have a set, you can buy tree hooks separately.

He seems to really love it – the higher the better! He also loves when I grab him and wait to release him to swing. It also swings on its own for a good minute without additional pushing (might be G swinging his little feet a bit).

Couple of quick tips though:

  1. The s-shaped hooks need to be facing opposite directions when you hang on your swing set or hook. If not, the swing won’t go straight.
  2. The shoulder straps hook is a bit tough to get undone. It did get better after the third or fourth time, but try it before securing your baby. Geeky Mommie and Geeky Grammy had a hard time getting it undone because of slightly longer nails. You have to push in and pull at the same time. I have nightmares of taking Lil’ G out on the swing without Geeky Daddy home and not being able to get him out! But luckily it loosened and I had no issues.

For less than $20, you seriously can’t go wrong with this. GeekyMommie highly recommends. Happy Swinging!
