I bought this for my son when he was about 2 months. He was an early starter for teething. He was too young to make is vibrate on his own so we would squeeze one side while he had the other end in his mouth. Worked great! Now at 10 months, he chews on everything including this. He can make it vibrate on his own and loves to shake the rattle. Its really cute to watch becasue he cant decide if he wants to shake it or chew on it.
I'm an administrator for a group home for children. Many of the children display PICA behavior (which is putting objects in their mouths that they'll eat or suck on). Finding something that is soothing and "clean" for these children to substitute for their bad PICA behaviors is hard to find, but this vibrating teether has become their welcomed "friend".
my seven month old grandson loves it
My gf recommended it since her children loved it. Our son loves it.
My son uses it as a rattle, not a teether!
I had one for my son when he was teething and just bought another one for my daughter for when she needs it.
This is great to just stop a fussy child. THey enjoy working with the cause and effect.I used it for both teething and for entertainment- it is still functioning 2 yrs later!
I tried several other teethers, none of which my son liked. This one he loves. He shakes it as a rattle and learned cause and effect rather quickly as it has to be bit on to engage the vibration. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!
When I saw this, I didn't think twice before I buy it. I think who doesn't like massage. Right? But my son hates it. He loves to chew it but when it vibrates, he throw it away in 1/100 second like there is a monster in it. I believe most of the baby like it but not my son...
Great for going out, but it picks up every bit of lint/cat hair it can when it ends up tossed on the floor.
This item works great for my son. I had one for my daughter and she loved it so I was so excitied to find it on here! HE chews on it non stop!
This seems like it would be good for some kids. My daughter is unable to make it vibrate at 9 1/2 months. Plus, when I squeeze it to make it vibrate, she seems bothered by it. She does play with it as a regular teether and rattle. She has others she seems to prefer a lot over this, though.
My 6 month old son absolutely loves it.
The ad says nothing about not being able to replcae the battery, now I know why the person who wrote the review was upset about the battery being dead. Once the battery goes, nothing can be done and you have to buy a new one. I would recommend but tell anyone about the battery issue.
My granddaughter loved it, so I had to find one for my new grandson. He loves it also.
My son has been "teething" for several months and has yet to cut a tooth. This teether seems to do an excellent job soothing him and it will no doubt be great when those teeth actually break through the surface. I am going to buy a few more just to be sure that we have one with good batteries.
My daughter loves this teether and seems to get comfort from the vibrations. However, the child must bite the teether to initiate and maintain the vibrations -- there is no off/on switch. It took her awhile to figure that out so I would only recommend for kids 8-12 months.
My son start teething pretty early--a little before 4 months. I tried several teethers, but nothing worked. Since he was so young, most of the teething toys on the market were simply too big for him to handle (or too hard to chew). This one has nice soft rubber and the massager is sensitive enough that he can activiate it with his own gum pressure. He also uses it as a toy (he likes the rattle on the end). A great double-duty teether!
I recently bought this teether for my son who is 5 months old. My cousin strongly recommended that I buy it after seeing great results when used by her 8 month old daughter. My son has only used it for 4 days and is already having his first tooth breaking through on the bottom left. My two year old likes to play with it too!
My daughter is teething now at 5 months. she is pretty coordinated (for a 5 month old!) but still has a lot of difficulty holding this in her mouth, keeping it there at it's kind of bulky. HOWEVER, she does like it when I hold it and press it. She's still learning how to make it work. If this was much smaller and lighter I think it would be a 5 star. My daughter is still learning how to "chew" on things like this. So far..nothing has worked. I suppose as she grows it will be very helpful to her.
my son loves this. I have caught him biting on the railing in his crib at nap time, then I give him this toy, and he stops biting the railing and plays with this until he falls asleep. This toy goes everywhere with him.

The teether has not always been an easy find. I have recently purchased one for my 4th child who has started teething. This is my all time favorite product. Each of my children has use this product. I plan to purchase more as I come across them in case one gets misplaced. The only thing that I wish the company would change is the ability to change the battery. I have not seen other colors or shapes offered.

I bought this teether for my twins and both babies dropped it like a hot potato the minute they felt it vibrate. They are 10 months old. I tried to give it to them a bunch of times, but had the same reaction each time. I put it away and will try it again in another month or so. So, be aware that some babies will be a bit freaked out by it.
My son loves this star. He prefers it to most of his other toys. He had no trouble getting it to vibrate at all. He has always been a good nurser, though.
I highly recommend this product! [...] My daughter is almost 2, and just starting to get those last 4 back molars in, and she STILL uses this. It has different textures on each tip of the star, that she likes, and the soft vibration soothes her. This was the first teether that I didn't regret buying, and the longer she uses it, the happier I am! :D Hope it works great for you too!
I have three children and bought this for each of them. It was a LIFESAVER! A must for every baby and for every parent with a teething baby!
This has been my 11 mo old's favorite teether for months. It was a bit heavy at first, but he soon grew into it. Now, it's the only thing that really comforts when the teething gets bad. We depend on it so much, we got two. It kept getting swiped at playgroup, so now most of the kids have them.
We also use it to tell how bad his teeth/gums hurt. If it's not so bad, he'll play with the rattle end too, but if he's really working on a tooth, he only uses the vibrating end.
My son loves this teether! He chews every square inch of it, and the vibration soothes his gums. He has used it since he was 6mo. old, and still enjoys it at 1yr. I hope the batteries can hold out!
This is an interseting product but my baby can't put it into her mouth enough to make it vibrate. I have to push very hard on the side as she has it in her mouth for it to vibrate. NOT as good as others said it is.
This is one of Carson's very favorite toys. We always have it hooked onto his diaper bag. He is 9 months old with four teeth, but has trouble getting the vibrating on the star to come on so he just likes chewing the spinning end.Images shared by: Shelli Norwood
I like this teether because it does soothe and work, I just wish it was a little smaller, my 4 month old is already getting teeth and she can't quite fit the points in her mouth.
This Massaging Action Teether is the only thing that soothed my son when he was teething. Definitely money well spent!
This is an AWESOME teether! I bought it for my daughter when she was 8 months old. She is now almost 13 months old and still loves it!! It didn't take her long to figure out how to make it vibrate and still does it quite easily! Thank you for such a great product!
This is a great teether. I got this for my son at 4 months, it was a little heavy for him at first, but soon after he loved to chew away. The teether rattle at the other end is great too.
Wonderful Teether! We bought for our son at 5 months...he is 13 months and still loves it. We are amazed that the batteries are still going! By far the best teether!
My Daughter is thirteen months old and teething horribly... I could do nothing to comfort her until we found this teether.... Now it is her favorite teether and often the only thing that works as she is getting five teeth in at the same time. It's either that or the freezer teethers....
My seven month old teether will not bite down hard enough on this to make it vibrate but still chews on it and likes the rattle on the other end.
Wonderful product for children with Special Needs/ Sensory issues. We use it in my daughter's Special Day Class for all the children who need extra oral stimulation.
This was my son's favorite teether when he was going through that teething phase. I bought it for him when he was 6 months and the batteries are still working. This is a great buy.
