New to Bounty?
As the name suggests, teething toys have a dual purpose – they are something for baby to chew on when gums are sore, but they can also entertain.
And when even a toy won’t distract for the pain, there are also natural and tasty gels to ease sore gums.
At Bounty, we have selected our favourite teething products.
The winning baby products of the year have all been exhaustively tried, tested and voted on by real mums, bubs and Bounty’s expert panel.
This year the awards, proudly brought to us by Babies ‘R’ Us, saw more than 40,000 Aussie parents plus a panel of industry experts cast their votes on a range of products from nappies and car seats, to prams and breast pumps, judging each one on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.
Products were put through their paces over a period of six months in three different settings: real-life situations, a retail environment and online. The products submitted were assessed on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.
