We are set for another round of production and will introduce a NEW colour per design to our existing rainbow range of teething and sensory toys!
Helles Teeth is dedicated to bringing safe gum-soothing goodness to brutal babes all over the world, now in a growing range of colours and themes. Our simple yet effective designs ensure that your baby gets the relief that they need at every stage of teething; right from the first signs of discomfort at 3+ months to the brutal back molars as a toddler (around 2.5 years). They are also suitable and effective sensory toys for children and adults.
We have 3 successful projects behind us which has resulted in 5 designs of 3 ranges - Teething for Odin, Sugar Skull and Cthulhu Chew. Each design is available in two standard and one metallic colour, and we'd like to add one standard colour (at least) for each design.
We'd like to expand our range by at least one colour per design, starting with the Teething for Odin range. All designs and colours are available as rewards through this project and will be sent in time for Christmas/Yuletide. If we hit our funding goal, the Teething for Odin range will be produced in the Fjordane colour set consisting of Blood Eagle Red, Glacial Green and Fjord Blue - colours inspired by my travels through the Fjords of Norway.
When we reach our funding goal we will reveal the stretch goals and proposed colours for the new Sugar Skull and Cthulhu Chew toys.
Proposed Teething for Odin colours:
The teething toys:
- are made of food-grade silicone
- are BPA, phthalate, lead and toxin free
- have no detachable parts so low choke risk
- are soft, flexible and durable
- can be frozen, boiled and sterilized
- are dishwasher and microwave safe
- are made to comply with international safety standards
Making teething toys that are SAFE for baby is expensive. I use an offshore certified factory that specialises in baby teething toys and operates to high standards. I will use the same manufacturer as I did for the original run of Teething for Odin teething toys, Sugar Skulls and Cthulhu Chews as the quality was incredible. The toys are larger than your standard toys to accommodate gumming through to aggressive biting, and so require more silicone and are heavy at almost 50g each. This makes them the perfect toy for babies, which can also be used by children and adults. They are shipped to me in New Zealand, taxed at our ports, packaged then shipped out to their new owners in time for Christmas!
Make the most of our Kickstarter rates and get sorted for Christmas. Teething toys usually RRP NZ$18 + $5 shipping local or $14 international. We have managed to offer cheaper shipping to Kickstarter backers in the US and UK by double shipping in bulk (NZ$17 + $3 shipping local or $7 US/UK).

Please note: My goal is to ship teething toys out during November, but this does not guarantee that you'll receive your toy by Christmas. Within Nz takes up to a week, US and UK shipping up to 3 weeks and other countries can take up to 4 months due to customs in your country.
Risks and challenges
My biggest concern when launching projects is whether or not I can reach the goal with the US exchange rate against me. I'm also trying my hardest to get all rewards shipped during November, so they arrive in time for Christmas.
I have run a successful campaigns before and was able to produce, package and send all rewards by my estimated date, despite set backs. I learned a lot from my first successful campaign and so feel equipped to deal with obstacles that may arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
