The Baby Toon™ is a soft silicone baby spoon that makes eating safer and fun and eliminates sharp angles and ends. Choking and gagging are prevented by the unique animal shape that is limiting how far the spoon can go in the baby’s mouth.
The Baby Toon is made of super-soft silicone that works as both a teether and a baby spoon and it is gentle on gums.
The Baby Toon is perfect for a ready-to-go baby gift and it is packaged in a white muslin tote. This product was invented in hopes to protect babies and prevent them from putting the back of a hard plastic spoon in their mouth and help a lot of families.
