Matchstick Monkey

Antimicrobial Baby Teething Toys

With their products being sold in over 40 countries, Matchstick Monkey designs baby teething toys and other accessories that help guide parents and babies through the key developmental stages of teething. The business idea was born when new mum, Katie Windridge, couldn’t find anything to ease her baby’s teething pain. Inspired by her daughters love of monkeys, the original designs for Matchstick Monkey were created. Matchstick Monkey was then launched with the help of Touker Suleyman from BBC’s Dragon’s Den in December 2016.

Innovation and problem solving are at the centre of Matchstick Monkey’s philosophy. Each of their products is tested to the highest standards and reviewed by real mums and dads. Matchstick Monkey received multiple awards including Mother & Baby Awards in 2019 and 2020.

The Matchstick Monkey teething toy is a fun and flexible textured teether that’s perfect for young babies. It comes in various animal shapes and a wide range of colours. For very small babies, the cute and compact Mini Monkey is easy to hold and it’s perfect for keeping it in the baby bag whilst on the go. All teethers have textured bumps that gently massage baby’s gums to relieve pain.

In addition to being BPA free, non-toxic and environmentally friendly, the Matchstick Monkey teethers are protected with integrated BioCote® antimicrobial technology. BioCote® protection makes it easier to keep the teethers fresh and clean, making them perfect for travelling too. Whilst the teethers can be cleaned in the dishwasher and through steam and cold water sterilisation, the added BioCote® antimicrobial technology reduces 99.99% of microbes within 2 hours on the surface of the product, helping to keep the teether hygienically clean and fresh in between cleans. More benefits of BioCote® protection in Matchstick Monkey teethers.
