Baby Banana Brushes are made of the highest quality food grade silicone. They are made using a dual injection molding process, which bonds all of the silicone into one extremely durable product. Baby Banana Brushes are 100% silicone–they have no hard parts, so they are safer for baby! They have been tested by Bureau Veritas and other private testing labs, and meet all the safety requirements as stipulated by the CPSIA for phthalates, lead and BPA. See “Safety” for detailed information
Baby Banana Brush toothbrushes are manufactured in NY, USA and Taiwan. We have a close relationship with our manufacturers, and regularly visit the factories. Our Spry Tooth gel is manufactured in American Fork, Utah.
The Original Baby Banana Brush has a slimmer head, thinner bristles and is designed for children ages 12 months and up, because it is primarily intended for brushing. The Baby Banana Teether has handles that make it easier for little hands to grasp and also block it from going down the throat. The Teether has a shorter neck and thicker bristles for gnawing and chewing. The Baby Banana Teether is meant for babies up to 18 months.
We started with the Baby Banana Brushes and are growing our product line to include all tropical plants and animals. The Baby Sharky Brush is our first product in the “under the sea” tropical theme. Come back to our site soon to see the other fun characters we will be coming out with!
The Combo Pack contains the Original Baby Banana Teether paired with Spry Xylitol Strawberry Banana Tooth Gel. This pack is great for children ages 12 months and up, and the tooth gel can be used by children of all ages. The Deluxe Infant Oral Care Kit contains a finger cot, a “drool tool” microfiber cloth, an eruption chart, Spry Xylitol Strawberry Banana Tooth Gel, The Original Baby Banana Brush, and Dr. Bloom’s Chewable Jewelry–silicone jewelry to be worn by the mother so she can still look chic while baby pulls on her necklace to teethe. The Deluxe Infant Oral Care Kit is designed to cover all of your baby’s oral care needs from birth to 24 months. Both of these products make wonderful gifts for a baby shower.
Xylitol is a sweetener derived from natural sources. It is also produced in the human body as a by-product of a normal metabolism. Our xylitol is of the highest quality possible. It is a pharmaceutical grade, meaning it must be more that 99.95% pure, and is made from non-GMO (non-genetically modified organism) corn fibers. It does not contain any corn grain and it is tested to ensure that no corn allergens, mycotoxins, or corn proteins of any type are in the product.
All of our products are available through the Products tab on our website. You can also find Baby Banana Brush at dental offices and specialty Baby Boutiques all over the country and internationally. See our “Store Locator” tab to find the store nearest you.
Baby Banana Brush products are unique because they are one solid piece of medical grade silicone–right down to the bristles. These brushes have been tested to pass a tear test equal in force to what can be applied by a baby. Most babies simply do not have the jaw strength required to pull out a bristle, so it would be very unlikely if a bristle were to come out. However, if this happens there is no need to worry. Baby Banana Brushes are made of inert silicone which is non-toxic, and if swallowed, can pass through the digestive system without any problems. Always check your babies toothbrush and remove any loose bristles before each use.
Baby Banana Brush is bendable and flexible. Risk for mouth injury is decreased should your child accidentally fall.
We determined through our research of safe shapes for baby to play with and use, that a slight C-shape less likely to go down the throat. When we looked at our safely shaped prototype, we all thought it resembled a banana, so we colored it thusly.
They can be boiled to sterilize, or run through a dishwasher cycle (just like baby bottle nipples) to sanitize. No need to toss the Baby Banana Brush when your child gets sick, like ordinary toothbrushes. Just run through the dishwasher!
