The Mochi Maraca Teether is ideal for teething babies, ages 3 months and up. Of course, the eco-friendly manufacturing process will appeal to parents who are concerned about the toys that their baby is putting in his mouth. With its muted colors and contemporary look, this teether is also going to appeal to parents who are looking for alternatives to mass-market baby toys.
These products are called “mochi” because a mochi is a Japanese rice cake and the teethers are made from rice. According to the package, this is the process to make each Mochi teether. Each Mochi piece is created with rice harvested in Japan. Then, the rice is mixed with People Toy Company's unique blend of special ingredients to create a 100-percent safe and sustainable Mochi rice-plastic. Then engineers hand-assemble each piece to exact specifications, free of any harmful adhesives and paints.
Because of the environmentally friendly manufacturing process, this teether is going to cost more than traditional teethers. But parents who are looking for eco-friendly baby products and value innovative design won't mind paying the additional cost for peace of mind.
Other Mochi teethers and toys are also available and sold separately.
