MatchstickMonkey™ is a training toothbrush and teething gel applicator aiding pain relief, getting teething gels or granules right to the source of the pain.
"Finally a teether that actually works! A must have for all mums"
MatchstickMonkey™ is a silicone monkey which young children just love to hold, with thin flexible arms it's really easy for young children to hold on to. MatchstickMonkey™ is a fun safe monkey design to help keep their mind off their teething pain and helping keep teeth clean.
It can also be used as a fun training toothbrush encoraging children to keep there teeth clean in a fun & safe way.
An ideal teether which infants will love to chew on with or without the teething gel.
MatchstickMonkey™ is Eco friendly and made from FDA approved silicone which is compliant with government standards. The wide monkey arms provide an easy to grasp surface for infants to hold as well as help you get the gel or granules into the right place, soothing sore gums.
MatchstickMonkey™ is a teether which will help your child get through their teething pain!
Can also be used as a follow on training toothbrush helping with early oral hygiene.
MatchstickMonkey™ will come in 8 fun and vibrant colours so you are not limited and will hopefully find a good colour to suit you and your child.
MatchstickMonkey™ sits on the edge of your work surface so when your child is a little older they can literally tell you when they are teething. My 1 year old daughter reaches out to the toy when she is teething and gets so excited when I get it for her. When I put the teething gel onto the bristles in front of her, her legs start kicking and she literally can't contain herself. I can see her face and the relief she gets when she chews the gel into her gums. This is a teether that really does work!
I am passionate about helping children with this pain that unfortunately they all have to go through. Some worse than others but with your help I hope that other mums like me will see how effective this teether actually is.

Risks and challenges
I have come across many risks and hurdles along the way. It has not been easy to get Matchstick Monkey to where it is now:
After 1/2 a year of planning & designing I finally produced the first mold, but it turned out the monkey was a tiny bit too skinny. This set me back a lot of time & money as I had to produce a second mold. I had to go back to the drawing board and redesign the perfect monkey. It took a further 5 months to design and sample the second batch of samples but luckily they turned out to be great.
I then had to make sure my design passed all the necessary testing. Using the highest quality materials with your babies safety in mind and every dimension thoroughly & lovingly thought about Matchstick Monkey has used the highest quality of FDA approve silicone.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
