We all know about the teething period: there’s fussing, turning, sleepless nights, crying, aching, rubbing, drooling, and basically the baby’s uncomfortable and well, so are we, moms too. There are gels, toys, rubbers, frozen dummies, and many other options, but we found the best option for the teething period, and not only: Oli and Carol is designing natural baby rubber toys for modern parents and fun kids. Or the other way around. Founded in Barcelona in 2016 by sisters Olimpia and Carolina, the Oli & Carol toys are the answer to soothing gums, and are to be kept until the toddler years, as they are so fun to play with at bath time or afterwards to be used as decorations for the kids’ rooms.
Made with 100% natural rubber from Hevea Trees, the toys are soft, easy to grasp and safe to use as teethers, bath toys, bracelets and sensorial games, and they are totally safe by being handmade and hand-painted one by one with natural food grade dyes. Hence, you can rest assured they are highly hygienic and mold free.
We have tested them on babies and toddlers, and honestly, I had equally as much fun playing with them as they did! We now have the fruit and veggies all around the house – bananas in the bed, broccoli and carrots in the mini kitchen for cooking – of course we are making soups, and boiling veggies for pretend dinners; watermelon in our picnic basket for a quick snack outdoors, and avocados along with the real avocados in the fruit basket. My son loves chewing on them all the time, and so did our baby friends we have gifted them to.
They’re also so cool for bath time fun- the rubber is so soft and ideal for bath bubbles.
