melting fruit :-(,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The First Years Fruity Teether (Pink or Blue) (Toy)
On first receiving the fruity teether I was very happy. It looked sturdy, colourful and above all practical for teething babies. This because it has various textures which will give baby different nibble surfaces and it's quite easy to grasp for tiny hands. However I try to sterilise all that goes into baby's mouth, including this teether and it was quite a disaster. All the fruity bits have melted and they've shrunk as well. Granted the instructions don't menton sterilisation, but one would imagine this is one of the first requirements of a teether. In short it looked very nice but is not very useful as it's now a colourful blob.
On relection I'm not sad. It was not an expensive product and it doesn't say it's BPA free anyway. I won't buy any other Learning Curve products though as a result of this, because a company should get the right. Like teether => needs sterilasation.
FYI: microwave steriliser, 6 min
Company can improve product by:
add BPA info and cleaning instructions or warning it's not microwave sterilisation friendly on both packaging and website.

True - I made that mistake but it's true it has no mention on the packaging that its not suited for microwave sterilising...hope they refunded you or gave you a new one. I know it's not a lot of money but still it's the principle

the same thing happened to me. I'm not buying special stuff to sterilize...if it can't be boiled for 2 minutes, it's out.
