The Grippie Ship is a proprietary accessory to The Teething Egg (sold separately) that allows little hands more control while teething! The stick length of the handle can assist younger teethers with use of the egg, while the grip texture prevents the 'drooly drops' that often happen with teethers. Snapping directly on to the bottom of The Teething Egg, The Grippie Ship can turn your teether into the perfect rattle for play too! Safe and Made in the USA, The Grippie Ship is BPA, BPS, Phthalate and Lead FREE. Dishwasher and steam-sterilizer safe as well!
