Chewbeads Review and GIVEAWAY!

 CHEWBEADS Review and Giveaway!

So, I found out about Chewbeads at a friend's Christmas party during a gift exchange.  
I had no idea they existed until that night, and after I saw them,
I couldn't get my mind off of what a fantastic idea they are! 
So, I contacted Chewbeads to see if they would let me do a review and a giveaway for my readers, and they said YES! I was absolutely thrilled!  They let me pick out a Jane necklace, and a Hudson necklace to try out. I chose the olive green Jane and black Husdon. 

I really wanted to see which Evie, my 4 month old teething baby girl, preferred; the flat beads on the Hudson, or the round beads on the Jane.  She ended up loving them both, but could hold the Jane beads a little easier with her little hands.  She played with them as I nursed her, and I took them off while we were in church to keep her occupied.  I felt safe letting Evie chew on the necklaces since they are made of the same BPA free silicone materials that most nipples and pacifiers are made of.  It also has a break away clasp so that if she ends up pulling hard enough, it will just open, rather than break... which is more than I have to say about my two necklaces I attempted to wear to that Christmas party. (May they rest in peace.)

Not only do I love that Chewbeads necklaces are safe for my daughter to chew, but they are also very fashionable.  I don't feel like I'm wearing a baby toy around my neck, but rather something that is a nice finish to my outfit.  I chose colors that I would wear a lot, and that's the thing, Chewbeads has a very large assortment of colors to choose from!  In fact, I had a difficult time choosing just two colors.  I have built my outfits around, and have worn my necklaces almost every day since I got them in the mail!

 (My black Chewbeads Hudson necklace.)

The only thing that I don't particularly like about these Chewbeads necklaces is that the dark colors tend to show fuzz from sweaters and hair.  That only happens because they are made of silicone. Thankfully these necklaces can be washed with soap and water, not only cleaning the fuzzies, but also disinfecting them for the babes.

Over all, I think these necklaces are by far my favorite newly discovered item.  I know that they'll be a part of my outfit every day...maybe even after my babies are done teething!  (Yes, they are that cute!) Thank you, Chewbeads!
