We believe that each and every moment of parenthood is worth treasuring; from the adoring smiles and giggles to those moments you just need to sleep! Each milestone brings something new to love and learn. At Matchstick Monkey, we design products that help you guide your baby through the key developmental stages of teething, from before the first tooth, through to the very last.
Innovation and problem solving are at the centre of Matchstick Monkey’s philosophy. Each of our products is tested to the highest standards and are reviewed by real mums and dads. We have been awarded multiple awards including Mother & Baby Awards in 2019 and 2020!
Matchstick Monkey is perfect for parents or friends and family looking for a unique gift that really makes a difference.
Matchstick Monkey was born when new mum, Katie Windridge couldn’t find anything to ease her baby, Minnie’s teething pain. At just one-month-old, Minnie’s pain was constant. She wouldn’t settle and no one was getting much sleep. Minnie refused every teething toy, and Katie’s fingers hurt from being bitten when she tried to apply teething gel. After nursing yet another bleeding finger, Katie realised there had to be a better solution. Inspired by her daughters love of monkeys, the original designs for Matchstick Monkey were created.
Katie, now Mummy to Minnie, Coco & Bailey launched Matchstick Monkey with the help of Touker Suleyman from BBC’s Dragon’s Den in December 2016. And the rest is history!
We’re delighted that Matchstick Monkey has proven incredibly popular with parents worldwide, with our products now being sold in over 40 countries. We continue to develop new innovative teething and baby products, including comforting muslins and blankets, plush toys and gift sets.
