Hippos’ design allows the baby to hold it with only one hand and put it in his or her mouth. It is a safe, light and fun design, and is suitable for babies from the first month. With an extra light weight, its different textures massage the gums. Moreover, the refrigerant teething ring brings down gum swelling and strengthens the teeth thanks to its bristles.

A cold teether can be very refreshing for a teething baby. But experts agree that you should chill your teethers in your refrigerator rather than freezing them. This is because when frozen, the teether can be too hard and end up damaging your child’s gums. It can also damage the durability of the toy.

Hippos was designed for Suavinex, a Spanish company that, since 1983, has been accompanying millions of homes on this special journey that is pregnancy, birth and bringing up a child. It is the industry leader in the Spanish market.

The company’s product portfolio has grown over the years to adapt to each customer’s needs and offer specific items for breastfeeding, bottle feeding, soothers and clips. They also offer small appliances, an extensive range of body treatments for pregnant women, mums and babies, and hygiene, teething, feeding and textile products, among others.

Teething is one of those stages that can be just as uncomfortable for parents as it is for their baby. A teething ring is a type of teething toy. It’s easy for small fists to grasp and provides the pressure needed to soothe sore gums. Teething toys are a great and safe alternative for babys.

We, at Alegre Design, have designed many products with babies and children in mind. Structures with a playful goal, such as Decco Bubbles, bike-racks inspired in the animal kingdom such as D-NA Wall and the Nana rocking chair are some of our designs focused the youngest of the house.
