Most babies teethe after they gain the basic motor skills needed to hold a standard teething toy or object. However, there are some babies that need to teethe but cannot hold those toys. Darlyng and Company solves this problem with their line of teething toys that can be held by still-learning fingers.
Even better, Darlyng and Company will be at this year’s New York Baby Show, on May 14th and 15th, at Pier 92.
The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler. From top products to trusted parenting experts, the New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!
Tickets to the New York Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.
We spoke with Detara Darnley, CEO and co-founder of Darlyng and Company, to find out more.
For someone unfamiliar with Darlyng and Company, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Darlyng & Co. is all about making innovative products that are not only functional but stylish as well. We are all about creating unique products that will connect with the consumers. Our goal is simplifying the day-to-day challenges that comes along with being a parent. One of our missions is to be a leader in innovations for the future, while creating high-end and functional children’s products that reinvent and inspire.
What is the background of Darlyng and Company? When was it started, and how has it evolved since then?
Darlyng & Co. was born out of the need for a teether that did not exist on the market in late 2014. Like most mom-or-dad-invented products, the idea for the Yummy Mitt® teething mitten began after the birth of our first daughter. At around two months, she started teething and her hands were constantly in her mouth. She started teething earlier than expected and was frustrated at not being able to completely grasp the standard teethers that were on the market. Our need for a more functional, safe and stylish teether that she wouldn’t need to grasp created the idea of the Yummy Mitt® Teething Mitten. Designed for babies who haven’t developed the motor skills to hold traditional teething toys, babies that aren’t able to grasp standard toys can manipulate Yummy Mitt® Teething Mittens with ease and little effort. In less than a year since launching, we’ve grown tremendously and have even started distributing our products internationally. Our product line has extended and we are working on a few fun projects currently!
What are the most popular and/or newest products from Darlyng and Company?
Our most popular product currently is the Glow in the Dark – Yummy Mitt® Teething Mitten (3-12 months) and our Anti-Scratch Mittens for newborns to 3 months.
What sets Darlyng and Company apart from other baby apparel companies in the market?
We are a company that thinks outside the box. As parents, we always look at our products from that perspective. Our products must solve a need and must be set apart from the designs offered on the market.
What can parents expect to see from Darlyng and Company at the New York Baby Show?
We are excited to be at the New York Baby Show because we are a Brooklyn-based company, so we are very much at home. Parents will be able to see and feel our awesome products in person. We are excited to introduce new colors and products at the show. We are definitely excited to be a part of the show as an exhibitor this year!
