Here are the latest news on TalkTools' product arrivals and updates in regards to feeding therapy.
1. VIBE & TIPS KITS
Our previously called "Dn-Z Vibe Travel Kits" have been upgraded. A replacement battery and a disinfectant have been added in each kit, all for the same price! The new "Vibe & Tips Kit" and "Vibe & Tips Kit with Spoons" now include 1 Z-Vibe with a collection of tips, 1 Z-Vibe replacement battery and 1 4oz spray bottle of PureGreen24, assembled in a sturdy travel case. PureGreen24 has been chosen for its safety and convenience with tools involved in feeding. It is a proven hard surface antimicrobial disinfectant and deodorizer that offers rapid efficacy with unique 24-hour residual effectiveness. Non-flammable, non-corrosive, and odorless, without the fumes or skin irritation associated with traditional disinfectants, PureGreen24 not only kills everyday household germs, but also the most deadly of superbugs. None of the chemicals in this product are considered hazardous by OSHA, and the product is EPA registered for use on children's toys (no rinsing required). The Z-Vibe plastic handle is available in 3 colors: light blue (shown below), light grey and magenta.
