Touch rings, dummy chains: The test winners come from Heimess

Touch rings, dummy chains: The test winners come from Heimess

For its August issue, the magazine Öko-Test from Frankfurt am Main tested fifteen dummy chains from various manufacturers, including five made of wood. The Heimess dummy chain Soft Colours "Ladybug" completed the test without any complaints with the test score "excellent".

The baby toy series "Soft Colours" leaves the fine wooden structure visible. HEIMESS Soft Colours are also made exclusively from native beech and maple wood and are completely Made in Germany.

For the sake of children and the environment, we only use water-based paints and do not use clear varnish with solvents.

HEIMESS dummy chains fit every dummy

The HEIMESS dummy chains can be simply clipped onto clothes and the dummy attached to them – so the dummy does not get lost, and neither does baby's good mood.  

Convenient: HEIMESS dummy chains are compatible with all (commercially available) dummies – with ring or without.

Stiftung Warentest: Test winner HEIMESS

Stiftung Warentest had already tested numerous baby toys for the December issue of the "test" magazine. Heimess, the brand for high-quality baby toys from Gollnest & Kiesel, has impressively underlined the brand's importance. Four toys from Heimess underwent intensive testing by the product testers. Two impressed as test winners in their category, while two others were convincing with good scores and no complaints.

The Rainbow touch ring from Heimess (article number 736740) impressed the product testers, receiving a straight "excellent" rating for mechanical safety and pollutants. The glazed colours of the touch ring reveal the fine wood structure. The colours are water-based and of course completely non-toxic. Recommended retail price: 6.95 euros.

The "Moon and Star" dummy chain from Heimess from the nature series (article number 733700) has no colours at all. The ecological wooden series made of untreated wood is in high demand among consumers and is also ideal for allergy sufferers and immunocompromised babies. Recommended retail price: 8.45 euros.

The "Frog" dummy chain (article number 735170) was also given a respectable "good" rating, as was the "Vehicles" pram chain (article number 736000); RRP 9.45 euros and 17.45 euros respectively.

The "Ladybug" dummy chain, which was tested "excellent" by the magazine "Öko-Test", has the article number 736270 and costs about 7.45 euros in specialist retail stores.

Babies have being grasping the world with Heimess for 60 years. The brand for baby toys made of high-quality beech, maple and walnut wood from domestic forests is manufactured 100 percent by hand in Germany and sold worldwide.

Heimess is a brand of Gollnest & Kiesel

Gollnest & Kiesel is Europe's innovative manufacturer of wooden toys and the largest toy company in northern Germany. Its brands HEIMESS (baby toys made of wood, made in Germany), goki and HOLZTIGER  are well known in the toy and gift trade. The company was founded 37 years ago by Gerhard Gollnest and Fritz-Rüdiger Kiesel, who are now the managing directors of the company together with Frank Jungclaus. The HEIMESS brand has existed for 60 years, and Holztiger for handcrafted figures made of wood for around 20 years. More than 2,000 different products form one of the most widely varied ranges anywhere in the toy industry.

"We produce toys for children's hands, heads and souls," says Gerhard Gollnest. Over 500 Gollnest & Kiesel employees worldwide are busy making the world a bit more colourful every day.  

Gollnest & Kiesel places a very special emphasis on forestation. "Whoever takes something from nature must give something back to it," believes Fritz-Rüdiger Kiesel, who donates a new forest every year to Germany's least wooded state, Schleswig-Holstein. A tree is planted for every newborn child in the northernmost federal state. In this way, 300,000 new beech, maple and oak trees have been planted over the past 14 years.
