Just so so
I ordered this because my 6 month old was constantly trying to chew on my jewelry. I was excited to get this- when it arrived I was disappointed. It’s huge! Looks like something the flinstones would wear. I’m petite so maybe that’s part of the problem but all the people I showed it too agreed. I gave it a chance and wore it around the house and gave it to my baby in the stroller and car and she was never interested in it for more than 1-2 minutes. She will chew on Sophie and other teething toys much longer. Now she’s 9 months and is still very uninterested in it even though she has a tooth coming in now. She’s still very interested in any other jewelry I wear though! Overall pretty disappointed.
What a FANTASTIC idea!
Some of the other teether necklaces I’ve seen are not very cute, but this “Hudson Necklace in Turquoise” is so stylish! And unless someone is inspecting it, it looks like a great piece of jewelry, NOT a teething necklace. But I love that it is a teething necklace! My little guy loves to grab my jewelry and munch on it, so this works perfectly. He’s content, and I’m not worried. Must order in another style in this color – perfect for summer!
Super cute necklace. I have gotten several compliments on it for looks alone. Nice to have something handy to pop in your babies mouth when out and about. Comfortable. Unlike the round beaded necklace, this one does not pinch my hair.
Best thing so far for my teething baby
I’ve only had this necklace for a day, and I’m so happy about it that I decided to write a review. My 5-month old baby really likes to chew and play with this necklace. I do not wear / use this while nursing because it is too much of a distraction.PROS- This really, really, really keeps my teething baby occupied. It serves its purpose perfectly.- This is dishwasher safe.- The necklace easily slips over my head. (It has a clasp but it’s not necessary to use the clasp.)- It doesn’t pull on my hairs like some of the other Chewbead necklaces do.CONS- Yes, it does look jewelry from the Flintstones (but the baby does look super cute having it in their mouth).- It is a little on the expensive side but it’s worth it to me.- It is a little heavier than expected but it’s not too bad.- I can see how someone would think this looked cheap. In fact, my husband commented that it looks like the necklace came from a cheesy Polynesian festival. I bought the deep blue sea color.
My baby loves this
This is the best chew toy we’ve had. Not only is it our baby’s favorite, it’s also much more portable. Because of it’s shape he can’t throw it easily, so I’m not bending over to pick up a toy every 5 minutes which is great. If I string it around his neck, he looks like a Hawaiian king, and he can’t throw it from his carrier or stroller. It’s just the right size and texture that he loves to chew on. Great toy.
Cute, but difficult to keep clean
This necklace is cute, though a bit heavy. My nephew, who was 7 months old at the time, took to the necklace immediately. As my daughter has started teething, she has liked it, too.I ordered it in ivory and wish I had gone with a different color. (The ivory is actually quite difficult to match with clothing.) My biggest complaint, though, is that the necklace picks up dirt and lint easily and visibly. Overall, I think the necklace was a bit overpriced for what I got.
Even with new design, still a little big of hair tugging noticed.
I’ve noticed that this necklace does still pull a bit at your hair, especially the small hairs on the back of your neck. I do have very sensitive hair / scalp so it may not bother others at all. Not something that would keep me from wearing it, but a small annoyance. Also, as others have mentioned, this material does pick up EVERYTHING! Lint, dog hairs, etc WILL get onto the necklace. Easy to wipe off with a wipe, but another small annoyance. Lastly, my son just doesn’t seem to care too much for it. I think it’s hit or miss on if your little one will enjoy this to chew on.
Don’t waste your money
These beads are totally dorky and I’m horrified as I look back on the few times I actually wore this thing out in public. As someone else said, it’s like somethign from the Flintstones. Not to mention my baby was NEVER interested in chewing on these things. And it’s so over-priced for what it is. DON’T DO IT!!
looks nice and 9mo likes it too
The beads are bigger than I expected, but it looks nice. Comparable size to other statement jewelry that is currently fashionable. I can wear this with something casual or more dressy and it isn’t obviously a teether. My son knows exactly what it’s for and loves to play with it and chew on it while i’m holding him.
Love this necklace!
I love this necklace! My baby loves it as well. Everyone compliments it. I understand why it needs a safety clasp, but my 5 month old can pull it off effortlessly. Sort of a pain when we are shopping and then it falls on the ground, but we will survive. I think it’s a little overpriced, but I would still buy it again.
Disappointed I spent 40$ on these for my son to take no interest in them whatsoever. I suppose it’s not their fault, he may just not preferred soft chewy things. He prefers the hard things….like the metal parts of his paci leash. I cannot get him off those.
Heavier than I thought
I have had this necklace for a couple weeks and my daughter loves it. It works great the only reason that I didnt give it 5 stars is it is a little bit heavier than I would like. Not a big deal- still would buy it again
This is a great idea, but my baby isn’t really interested in this necklace. I bought this in deep sea blue, which is a gorgeous color, but I doubt I will wear it enough to make it worth the price.
People can’t believe it is for baby!
I bought this necklace so I could wear it with my baby, but it is so cute that I wear it to work sometimes! People are always surprised when I tell them it is soft, they think it looks much nicer than a baby necklace. The beads are pretty big, so think of it as a statement necklace.
I received two of these necklaces as gifts, and they are great! Not only are they stylish, they are completely functional. I only wish I had come up with the idea!
perfect but pricey
i love these necklaces! they’re a bit expensive but they’re definitely great to have in your wardrobe if you have a baby.since they’re long you don’t even have to deal with the clasp, just slide it over your head and go. they’re very easy to care for, just wash and dry. my baby has had a great time holding onto it while i carry him and fiddling with it to entertain himself. when we’re out and about i sometimes even take it off and use it as a toy, the bright colors catch his attention and he loves just about anything he can shove in his mouth and he can wrap his tiny hands around the beads of both the Jane and the Hudson.these would make great baby shower gifts (i wish my friends had known about them!)
I get compliments every time I wear these
Very cute and my kids love them and love to chew on them. I just wish they were a tad bit longer.
This is a beautiful necklace. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is that it is a very large necklace so it is difficult to find a casual outfit to wear it with. Mom on the go T-shirt and jeans may not work.
