The way Babies interpret the world in their early days, is by putting things in their mouths. It’s all in the parent’s “hands” to decide what “things” are suitable to satiate those sore gums. Teethers are usually the most straightforward and safe toy to grab from the baby department.
Most probably the ones that you are familiar with are Sophie The Giraffe, cold teether or fruit teethers, but have you heard of the new trending teethers that are made of Beech wood (that has natural antibacterial properties) and Silicon which is researched to be safer than the conventional plastic ones?

For parents who’s concern with what going to land in your little one’s mouth (either at home or on the stroller) which may contain dangerous substance from plastic-made toys, A+A provides a new trend to teether toys. All toys and accessories are made from natural non-toxic beech wood and 100% food grade silicone beads, certified and approved by International Standards – FDA and LFGB, and free from BPA, lead, PVC and phthalates.
With the products made locally, parents can be ensured that all A+A products are completely safe for your little ones to use on a daily basis.


  • Non- Toxic: Though not a “100% natural” material like rubber, food-grade silicone is a non-toxic polymer mostly made from silica (sand).
  • Non-contamination: It can withstand both heatings and freezing without leaching or off-gassing, hazardous chemicals – unlike plastics, which contaminate food in these environments.
  • Non-odour: It is also odour and stain resistant, hypoallergenic, and because of the smooth surface, very easy to clean.
  • Durable: It is soft life rubber and does not break. 
  • Eco-friendly: The perfect material for eco-friendly and non-toxic baby products in particular.

Beech wood:

  • No Splinters: Beech wood has a small grain so it’s hard to get splinters from them. 
  • Natural Antibacterial:  In a 2002 study scientists Gehrig, Schnell,  Zürcher and Kucera discovered that cutting boards made of wood (maple, beech and oak) were far more resistant to bacterial contamination than plastic polyethylene. 


Nowadays, most teethers bought from stores are made of plastic and may contain BPA, PVC or phthalates. To learn about the various dangerous contents, may refer to the link here.
