Today I'd like to introduce you to a local lady called Maddi who runs D&M*R Yum-ee Dum-ee, a hobby business making functional and decorative (and most importantly, SAFE) dummy clips.
As an expectant mum-to-be, dummies and dummy-related gadgets are just coming back onto my horizon as you can tell from this morning's review. Maddi handmakes all of her dummy clips and is passionate about finding new and exciting designs - she stocks a wonderful array of ribbons and can make designs up to order as well as the items she has in stock.
I really love some of the themed designs for Christmas, as well as the character designs such as Peppa Pig. The dummy clip we tried really was very sturdy and it would take some mean feat to pull the dummy from it once attached.
Yum-ee Dum-ee Clips are handmade using durable ribbon, plastic clips and snap fasteners that are sewn into place. All ribbon is heat sealed and heat bonded to prevent fraying. I use a sewing machine to make sure stitches are secure. The plastic clips are kinder to clothes than the metal ones many other brands use and because there are no beads or embellishments on the dummy clips, there is a reduced risk of choking and entanglement compared to others on the market. You can buy Yum-ee Dum-ee clips with a traditional clip fastening or the specialist MAM clips to support MAM soothers.
Maddi's dummy clips cost from £2 to £3. You can find out more about Yum-ee Dum-ee clips on the website or on facebook.
