Little Standout founder Staci Civins had been working in natural and organic children’s products for over five years when she was inspired to do something different. The fact that babies put everything in their mouths is common knowledge—and why, Civins wondered, couldn’t teethers serve as an interesting point of conversation, bringing parents together over something besides diaper changes and sleep schedules?
One successfully funded Kickstarter campaign later, Little Standout was formed. Civins drew the distinctive graphic shapes and made prototypes of the earliest models herself, testing them on dozens of teething babies to evaluate how easy they were to grab and chew before moving to mass-production.
These teethers are made from 100% safe, non-reactive medical-grade silicone that’s free of BPA, pthalates, and heavy metals. They’re naturally anti-microbial, durable, and dishwasher- and freezer-safe. And they’ve also been safety reviewed by a third-party American lab certified by the CPSC, exceeding ASTM testing and standards.
The best part? They’re designed to be relevant to adult interests and passions. Available in the shape of a hashtag, a camera, a diamond and a hand, these $15 teethers are a conversation piece for grown-ups and a toy that kids will love to integrate into play long after they’ve cut their last tooth.
