Product Description

Product Description

This teether will be the "star" of your collection, with chewable star points that produce a safe, soothing vibration whenever baby bites down on them.

In a relatively new concept in teething, The First Years introduces this massaging action teether. The concept is really quite simple: offer even the youngest infants a means to massage their gums at will. The massaging action increases circulation, thereby helping to alleviate swelling and discomfort. This soft, yellow, star-shaped teether has a smiling face and three nubby points that vibrate when a child bites down on them. The star sits upon an oversized blue plastic handle that's easy for even the youngest child to grasp. There's also an opening at the bottom of the handle that accepts a toy strap. The star rattle is surface washable and is powered by a nonreplaceable battery that's sealed inside the teether's handle for maximum safety. --Tami Horiuchi

I had this very teether for my twin boys 8 years ago and they absolutely loved it. So, when my new baby started teething, I sought out the same teether. I was surprised when it arrived and the packaging stated that the product is, "safety tested" for BPA, lead, and phthalates. It does not state ANYWHERE on the package that it is BPA free. As a former regulator (of medical devices) I am very sensitive about company labeling and statements. Perhaps too much so. But, I would rather err on the side of caution where my child is concerned, and the lack of clear "BPA free" labeling on this product gives me pause. Specifically, when they test it for BPA, lead, and phthalates, is there an acceptable amount allowed?! If not, why wouldn't the company simply label the product as BPA, lead, and phthalate free?

Eight years ago, when I gave this toy to my sons, no one had ever heard of BPA. My boys put all manner of plastic toys in their mouths, and I'm sure it was all riddled with BPA. But, in this day and age, when BPA is strongly suspected of being dangerous, I cannot in good conscience allow my new baby to chew on anything that MAY contain it. And, though someone on this site indicated that a representative from the company TOLD them it was BPA free, I'm still skeptical. Again, why not label it as such? Most companies proudly label their products with that simple language that cannot be confused.

My son who is 7 months old loves this vibrating teether. I am not sure about some of the other reviews but the battery can be replaced easily and its very soft and durable. On the drive to daycare each morning all you hear is the vibration from it. Its also very easy to wash off and we haven't had any trouble with it.

My son has been teething for 3 months (he is 7 months old) and he got this teether from his mom-mom and pop-pop for Christmas and it has been a lifesaver. It took him a few days to get used to the vibration of the teether but now he loves it. It also makes a great toy for him!

We have another vibrating teether that is very similar to this one, there are some differences though.
This one is much softer on the outside which could be nice on tender gums.
This one has 3 points that she can use to pin point the problem area.
Each point has a different texture (bumps, ridges) so there is some variance
This one seems like it is easier to activate

I will say that I don't know if she favors one for the other. It seems like she uses them both about equally.
She also likes to play with it by making it vibrate on her hands, feet, cheeks etc. We have had a lot of fun playing with it.
It's a great find and I wish I had come across it sooner.

A friend of mine recommended getting a vibrating teether when my son was in a bad teething stage. He was trying to put EVERYTHING in his mouth and just wasn't satisfied; the coffee table, freezer handle, coasters...you name it. I had actually never heard of this product, but I ordered it and he has loved it! It was a quick fix, so whenever he started chewing on something he shouldn't, I gave him the star teether and he immediately was happy. It made me laugh hearing the vibrating sound coming from it, but he is very content with it. It was a great purchase.

I got this for my son when he was about 8 months. he loved bitting it and he carry it all over the house. He is now 18 months and it still works plus he still bits on it too. I found it very easy to clean too.

My daughter was teething very badly and I bought this in a state of panic when all of our other teethers weren't seeming to help any more (Sophie, freezer teethers, fruit-shaped teethers, etc.ect.). At first I was disappointed because she (at age 7 months) couldn't get it to vibrate on her own. However, now that she is 9 months with 2 small bottom teeth she can make it vibrate with no problem and it's very clear that it provides some much-needed soothing and comfort. Would highly recommend for tots teething who already have teeth.

Our daughter loved this teether more than anything else. However it quickly quit working and since the batteries were not replaceable there was nothing we could do. The manufacturer says it will replace it with a store receipt, but it was a gift so no luck. Since then I've tried several out in stores and none of them worked. Also, water does get into the toy when it is washed, which is a big drawback. Too bad, because our daughter really loved the vibrating action on her gums.
