Products produced between 1932 and 1962 carried a 2 or 3 digit reference number prefixed by the letter K.

Where there is a product in the archive we have photographed it. Where we have no product but do have a catalogue then we have scanned the catalogue page as an image 'holder' until we get an actual product to photograph. Where we have no product or no image then we've posted a 'WANTED' sign. Please contact us through the 'Contact Us' link in the menu bar if you can help.
Our grateful thanks to those who have already contributed images, acknowledgements have been made in product text.
For generations Teething Beads have consisted of a string of enamelled wooden beads. These have never been very satisfactory because a baby, even without teeth, can eventually gnaw off the enamel. With Kiddicraft Teething Beads it is quite impossible for a baby to remove the slightest trace of colour or material.
These hygienic Teething Beads can be washed indefinitely in hot soapy water but should not be boiled. The chain is plated with pure silver and is much more hygienic and easy to clean than any type of cord. The rounded links cannot hurt the gums, and each link is individually welded.
These Teething Beads are moulded from a special plastic which will not break or chip, and the Beads can be washed daily in hot soapy wate, dried, and are immediately read for use. Long before the first tooth appears, a baby needs something hard and cool to bite on.
The traditional enamelled wooden teething beads are not really satisfactory because even without teeth, babies always manage to somehow to gnaw off the enamel - a practise to be frowned upon. Since you can't put an old head on six months' old shoulders, Kiddicraft Hygienic Teething Beads solve the problem in another way - by making it quite impossible for Baby to remove the slightest trace of colour or material.
