With just a few minutes to spare, I walked through my local Bumble Bee Baby and Childrens Market when I spot a stall selling on-trend necklace designs in a selection of eye catching colours.

After a chat with the two Mornington (VIC) based ladies running Achoo-chew, I discover that not only are these funky pieces great to look at, but they also happen to be teething accessories for little ones.
Achoo-chew Teething Jewellery
Achoo-chew teething jewellery is designed for fashion minded adult carers to wear, and babies to play with. Produced in a variety of simplistic yet colourful bead combinations, Achoo-chew necklaces look great to wear, and are also attractive to the eye of a baby.

Made with 100% food grade silicone, non-toxic, BPA free and free from many more nasties, Achoo-chew necklaces are completely safe for your baby to play with whilst you are wearing, and of course chew on to relieve sore gums and teething pain.
My own chosen Achoo-chew is an aqua marine teething necklace, with five hexagon turquoise and six white circle beads. The beige coloured necklace cord, approximately 80cm, sits lower down and away from my neck, making it easy for bubs to reach for.

I took my Achoo-chew necklace home, and my 17 month old immediately grabbed it for a play; he is fascinated. Each Achoo-chew bead is sturdy enough for my son's little fingers to play with, yet soft enough for his teeth should he choose to use to chew.
In all honestly, the designs of Achoo-chew necklaces drew me in, but now I am aware of their practicality, I can't help but think these unique accessories would make great gifts for a mother-to-be at a baby shower, otherwise a birthday present, or perhaps a Mother's Day gift.
Also worth noting; the Achoo-chew teething range also includes cute little silicone animal teethers, bangles and teether tags for the pram.
