Last week Ellie and I were lucky enough to try out a cool new product that I’ve been eyeing online: the PaciPlay by Toes For Eyes.
It’s a pacifier clip that’s also a teether – choice! I’m a huge fan of pacifier clips these days, as Ellie loves chucking things (I see softball in her future!), but she’s still not quite crawling so she can’t retrieve her own stuff.
Toes For Eyes sent Ellie a pretty “fairytale pink” Paciplay with a pacifier adapter, so it fitsÂ most of our pacifiers with the exception of the soothie brand. (Even though most pacifier clips don’t fit the soothies, I’ve found that if I really need to, I can always use a little piece of elastic – like a smallÂ no-metal hairtie – to make the Soothies compatible with any clippie.)Â
Ellie loved it immediately, and began chewing and yanking on it as soon as I clipped it to her shirt. It has a few raised edges, so I imagine they feel pretty good on her gums – she doesn’t have any teeth yet, but I know they’re coming!
One of the things about the paciplay that I liked is that it’s super easy to clean. Because it’s silicone (non-toxic, BPA-free, FDA-approved silicone) I can justÂ give itÂ a quick paciwipe bath or rinse under theÂ faucet and it’s as good as new – unlike the ribbon pacifier clips,Â which pick up grime quick when they’re all slobbery and saturated from Ellie chewing on them nonstop.
The Paciplay isÂ obviouslyÂ a little more stiff than aÂ regular ribbon pacifier clip, so I did notice that sometimes whenÂ Ellie spit out her pacifier it wasn’tÂ that simpleÂ for her to get it back into her mouth – mostly because if she picked up the pacifier in a way that twisted theÂ Paciplay, itÂ kept wanting to twist opposite the way she was trying to guide it into her mouth. I don’t think this would be an issue if Ellie were just a little bit older, so I’m sure that when her motor skills develop just a bit more this twisty thing won’t even be an issue. She never got frustratedÂ with it anyway, because when she couldn’t get the pacifier back into her mouth she just happilyÂ chewed on the silicone Paciplay, so…Â success!Â Â
Superwife’s BottomÂ Line: WE LOVE IT!
Â The Paciplay is cute, functional, and safe. It’s stretchy and chewy and unlike anything I’ve seen on the baby market so far, and Superbaby loves it.
Paciplays retail for $8.95 at theÂ toesforeyes.com website, and there are 14Â adorable designs to choose from in 6 different colors.
