Take Teething Keys from Kleynimals for a Test-Drive

Jingly-Jangly Teething Satisfaction

kleynimals toy keys!

Just as soon as baby stole the key to your heart, she was angling for the set to your car.

Hand over Kleynimals instead, the new stainless steel animal-shaped teether, er, keys for gumming babies.

The jingly-jangly ring comes with keys resembling an elephant, giraffe, and lion. Instead of the sharp, germy, lead-filled keys you put into your ignition, your little locksmith will get a nontoxic, ecofriendly, and equally satisfying food-grade stainless steel that’s safe for her mouth.

Plus, they can be tossed in the dishwasher. Would we steer you wrong?
