I absolutely lived with my gameboy attached to hands as a kid, still will take any opportunity to play Tetris that I can, lol. My baby just started teething and I tried a few different kinds but not only is this gameboy teether so insanely cute and nostalgic, the way the screen is open creates a good area for my babe's little hands to grasp and be able to gnaw down on the other side with the buttons. It's really light weight too, which helps her be able to hold on to it for longer once that grip is on there. With other teethers, I've noticed she has a hard time grasping on to and holding them for long because as small as they usually are they're not super ergonomic for their tiny hands to hold on to for long. Would absolutely recommend this for the parent looking for something that makes you smile just looking at it even amongst the difficult teething phase!
