I remember walking into the PumpStation for a Breastfeeding support group class and falling in love with these colorful necklaces. As a new mom, you go from your typical fashion to at least a few days/weeks/months of yoga pants and t-shirts. Chewbeads was my way of adding a safe, fashionable item to wear. Chewbeads have been a staple in our house ever since then. I think I own three necklaces, two bracelets and now one Juniorbead necklace.
Chewbeads is a fashionable mommy jewelry line that is safe for babies to teeth on. The beads are made of non-toxic material and are brightly colored which is perfect for curious babies. It’s really great for when you are wearing your baby in a carrier. I found it to be much more efficient for Pumpkin then drool pads on the carrier.
JuniorBeads are the newest product from the Chewbeads line. They are geared toward toddlers/young girls that are eager to play dress up and wear jewelry like their moms. I noticed that in the last couple of months, Pumpkin has been wanting to “dress up” more. She wants to wear a crown, or a bracelet. But I didn’t find anything that I trusted on the market. Not that stuff goes in her mouth anymore, but I’m still wary how things break apart (if broken) and what it would mean to have tiny little beads everywhere.
The necklace we received is a beautiful, bright mint heart necklace. Pumpkin is in love with it! It’s perfect for summer/spring (well all seasons if you are in Southern California), and surprisingly matched with many of her outfits.
Even though Pumpkin is out of the putting things in her mouth phase at 3 and a half, I did find her chewing on this necklace. I think more because it’s the first time she’s worn a necklace and I was so thankful that I chose to make a ChewBeads necklace as her first necklace. I just feel safer knowing the materials are safe for her.
The necklace we received is the mint Juniorbeads Spring Heart necklace. Another cool feature? It glows in the dark! This was really cool at the LA Zoo where there was a cave!
The JuniorBeads line has grown and I love this glow in the dark star necklace. It seems like something Ariel would wear and perfect for a trip to CA Adventures Ariel ride (my daughter’s favorite ride).
Huge thank you to Chewbeads for showing our family the new line of JuniorBeads necklaces. Such a great line with lots of options and will be a staple for us and make great gifts for toddlers that are starting to play dress up.
I received the JuniorBeads necklace from Chewbeads for purpose of this article. My opinion and story were not influenced by receiving the necklace as we’ve been a long time fan of the brand.
