No matter how many awesome toys babies have, they always go for remotes, phones, and keys. I’m a germaphobe and chemophobe, so I freak out every time one of those goes toward the baby’s mouth. We’ve bought fake (wooden) remotes, cameras, and phones- but those haven’t fooled baby A. I saw Kleynimals online not too long ago and was skeptical if baby A would enjoy them enough to spend $35, but I thought they were adorable. Baby A is quite picky about what she plays with, so without seeing in person, it is hard to buy for her. As luck would have it, an opportunity arose for me to review the Kleynimals Rattle and these are going to be my new go-to baby shower gift!
Kleynimals uses 100% American sourced, food grade stainless steel so everything is safe to go in your baby’s mouth. That also means no lead, cadmium, BPA, or phthalates. The Kleynimals rattle is made up of three 1.5 inch key animals attached to a large ring with several separator steel beads. When jiggled, the rings clack together to make a metal rattle sound. The ring is 3.25″ in diameter whereas their Kleynimals key rings are 1.50″ in diameter. The animals are larger with the keys but I love the small size with the rattle.
Baby A loves to pick up the rattle and walk around the room shaking- especially when her daddy is sleeping. She also loves wearing it as a bracelet. The cold metal of the animals has been soothing her irritated gums from teething and it works great to freeze for 10 minutes for the extra cold effect. The rattle and keys are dishwasher safe! The rattle is very lightweight, so great for babies 5 months+ and I’d encourage to have on hand when teething begins. This would have helped a lot with the front teeth irritation!
Baby A reminds me of Ludo when she puts it in her mouth and walks around.
Another cool thing about Kleynimals is that you can have the keys engraved with the child’s name and even date of birth.
Even if you don’t engrave, Kleynimals make an excellent heirloom gift that is unique and useful! I plan on hanging ours in a shadow box when baby A gets older.
