LocoMOmomma Review and GIVEAWAY


I contacted LocoMOmomma on my search for green, safe and adorable teethers for Kingsley. I was busy as a first time Mom with Zealand researching breastfeeding, sleeping and developmental progress that I skipped over some pretty important stuff. I am now finding that I only want to buy wooden or handmade toys. I gave Zealand so many teethers that carried ingredients that I cannot even pronounce let alone understand. Hence why I am bringing to you a natural teething week.


LocoMOmomma sent me her clutch set which includes 3 rings and a connector. Christian like to tether this into her carseat straps so her toy isn't dropped while driving. I don't know who is more clever LocoMOmomma for making this or Christian for executing;)

I love the detail work and the obvious love that goes into this product. Here is her bio that can be found on her etsy page:

I grew up on a farm in Iowa and taught myself how to crochet, embroider, latch-hook, and macrame (yes, it was the 70's) to fend off boredom.

Fast forward 3 decades, now I'm a SAHM of 2 youngsters. I began making amigurumi toys after our first child was born. As a paranoid first-time mom, I was exceedingly careful that my toys were baby-safe (NO plastic eyes, felt pieces, buttons, etc. to worry about baby choking on). I have continued this practice even now that my kids are beyond the choking age.

Recently I stumbled upon some 100% organic colorgrown cotton yarn at my local yarn shop. Immediately a light went on in my mommy-frazzled brain--crocheted baby toys! Stuff them with natural wool and viola!--the perfect combination to make my toys as safe as I can for babies! No worries over what chemicals your precious baby is ingesting every time they suck on these soft teething toys!!

In addition to organic items, I am also passionate about upcycling and waste reduction (not waist reduction, that's a whole other ball of wax!). Frequently I troll my local second-hand store for unwanted wool sweaters then felt them and turn them into baby hats and booties. Revamping discarded things into baby items that are functional as well as beautiful brings me endless satisfaction. I hope I can transfer that joy to those who buy from my shop!



She has many other wonderful products like this adorable organic lamb and monkey rattle. She also has croqueted balls and hand bar rattles. These are baby safe and really made to last.

I have to say that we use the ring set more to hold her other toys than Kingsley uses them to chew on but I love the fact that she CAN chew on them. I know that what she puts in her mouth is important and I feel safe knowing that anything from LocoMOmomma's store provides that!

Her products are also priced really great! I think the most expensive item in her store is $13.75 and you get 2 things for that price!
LocoMOmomma has GRACIOUSLY decided to give YOU your choice of product from her store up to $12!
And if you NEED to buy now she is offering 15% off (excluding shipping) with the code zealandsmom in the message. She will refund money after order goes through:)

I'd pick this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=31677383

My daughter loves anything that has rings, and this will feel unlike any toy she has, so I'm sure she'd love it!
