Safety & FAQ's
Teething and nursing necklaces are designed to be worn by an adult. They should NEVER be put on a baby or child as they have a cord and are therefore a strangulation hazard. Never leave your child alone with a teething necklace or use it as a stand alone teething toy. Little Magpies disclaim as far as possible any injury caused by improper use of a teething necklace.
Our necklaces have a clever breakaway clasp as standard. This ensures that if baby tugs hard on the necklace the clasp pops apart to avoid hurting you. It also means you can adjust the length of the cord to suit you by popping the clasp apart and reknotting the cord to your preferred length.
All of our beads, bangles and teethers are made from food grade silicone.
This material is great for teethers and necklaces because it:
- is free from BPA, PVC, Phthalates, Lead, Latex Cadmium and Heavy Metals.
- is made from the same material as most dummies and teething toys.
- is easy to clean - simply wash with soap and water
- does not support the growth of bacteria and mould
Our products are:
- Compliant with European safety standard EN71 (Parts 1,2 & 3)
- FDA Approved (US food standards agency)
- Bangles & teethers are CE tested and are safe to be given to baby
Care & Cleaning
Our teethers and bangles can go in the top rack of the dishwasher or be washed with soap and water. Although they are dishwasher safe we advise not doing so too often to prolong their lifespan. Our necklaces are not dishwasher safe due to the cord and clasp. You can clean the beads with soapy water or use a toy cleaning wipe.
When you're not wearing your jewellery you can store it in the bag it comes with. This helps to keep it clean and prevent damage. If you wear the jewellery daily, put it in the dishwasher regularly and baby is a keen chewer you should expect it to last for at least several months. However, if it is worn less, chewed less and cleaned gently you'll find it will last much longer. Always check regularly for signs of wear and tear and discard immediately in this event.
All UK orders will be posted within two working days using Royal Mail First Class as standard which usually takes 1-2 working days. UK postage is £1.50 flat rate and free for orders over £20. If you prefer you can upgrade to next day delivery. If you need your order quicker than my standard processing times please contact me and I will do my best to make sure you get it in time.
International orders are shipped using Royal Mail International Standard which takes around 5 days to EU countries and 1-2 weeks elsewhere. Sometimes parcels can take longer during peak or busy periods and may be held in customs in your country which is beyond my control. Shipping costs are calculated at the checkout.
If for any reason you wish to return or exchange your jewellery you may do so within 28 days so long as the item is in perfect unused condition and in the original packaging.
In the unlikely event that your order is faulty or damaged in transit please contact us and we will be happy to offer a replacement asap.
