Dev – Cause and Effect

This toy really motivated Arabella to press the large button-pad. It had vibration, visual stimulous (flying confetti in the dome) and a tinny music box rendition of Sesame Street’s theme song.

Baltic Amber Teething Necklace

My first thought with a roll of my eyeballs was, “Oh, God, what a hippie necklace!” A very, ultra alternative-type girlfriend of mine put them on both of her children and I dismissed it without much thought. It wasn’t until my ultra conservative Republican friend was pushing a stroller with her daughter in it, and she was wearing one. Upon questioning it, my girlfriend announced, “Oh, those? Everyone in Europe uses amber teething necklaces, it’s just Americans who are a little slow to catch on.”
