Kleynimals – Clean Key Animals®

(19 customer reviews)


Meet Eli the Elephant, Gus the Giraffe, and Leo the Lion.

They are non-toxic stainless steel toy keys that will satisfy your child’s desire to play with metal keys without the hazards of lead contamination, sharp edges, or the daily grime that come with the keys in the bottom of your diaper bag. Our toy keys are a “practical” keepsake gift that help stimulate a baby’s sense of sight, touch and sound, as well as both their fine and gross motor skills.

This item is not available for shipping to Canada. However, our rattle is a great alternative.  We like to call our rattle Zookeeper Keys!

Available in New Zealand and Switzerland through local stores.  We recommend that Australian and European customers also use these outlets. Please refer to our retail locations page for more information.

*Please note that engraved orders take an additional 2-3 weeks to ship.

    We just purchased these for our 7-mo son when we learned that it wasn’t safe for him to be playing with our house and car keys, which he loved. I’m happy to say that he likes the Kleynimals Keys even more than the house keys! He holds them and shakes them and chews them practically every waking moment and even likes to sleep next to them. Highly recommended and thoughtful product.

  2. Christine Chitambar

    I purchased our set in 2010 and each of my three children loved them. Now that they are older they are one of my most treasured keepsakes. These make a great gift–durable and don’t take up much space!

  3. Andrew

    I (and my daughter) immediately fell in love with this unique gift. I truly appreciate that this comes from a small and thoughtful company. This is a great gift idea. I’ll be keeping the keys out of reach of traditional toys so that my daughter continues to think they are “special” and not something she “should” have; I expect they’ll come in really handy when she gets fixated on other actual items like that.

    As an OT in the school system, I was searching for the perfect item to provide oral sensory input to a student who was seeking sensory input by exploring other metal items within their environment. Kleynimals exceeded my expectations! They truly have been a gamer changer for the student. They are well made, durable, non-toxic and easy to clean. The customer service was absolutely phenomenal. I will be returning to purchase Kleynimals for my students in the future! Thank you for creating such an outstanding product!

    My son loves these keys. They are super easy for him to grab & hold onto. I love that they are made in the USA and are super safe. They are also outstanding quality!

  6. Amy

    Everything about Kleynimals is a win for me! All of my kids have wanted to chew on my car keys and I never let them because they are gross and dangerous. But kleynimals are the perfect solution. They are darling, non toxic, so easy to clean, and the cold fun texture that babies like. Plus they are durable and can easily be used for more than one child. I love them, and so does my baby.

    I simply LOVE Kleynimals. They are my go-to baby gift for anyone and everyone. A beautiful (dishwasher-safe too!?!), personalized keepsake that doesn’t command tons of storage space after the kids move on. Everyone I’ve gifted to loves these too!

  8. Melanie Ehasz (verified owner)

    The design is beautiful and my baby loves them – especially useful during clothing and diaper changes!

    Ordered for my 7 month old son. So beautiful and such a great little toy! He loves metal and putting cold, metal things in his mouth so I knew this would be a hit! He also loves to shake them. Such excellent quality that I know will last. Highly recommend this company.

    Fantastic product and wonderful and personal customer service. Loved the cotton bag and little hand written card!

    I love our kleynimals, and my little ones do too! They both love munching on them! They’re also great for playing—my little one loves the sounds they make. They’re very easy to clean and maintain!
    As soon as I received them, I saw how well made they were. I think these would be one of those gifts that my little ones would pass on to their children.

    The Clean Key Animals make an amazing gift and keepsake! I have purchased many over the years for family, friends… and clients! The quality is excellent and the engraving option adds a great personal touch. Good luck giving this gift for a first baby and not giving it again as younger siblings are added to the family. Parents and babies love them that much! I also appreciate that they are made in America. This is a fantastic product from an exceptional company!

    I love the kleynimals keys, rattles and flatware and so do all my family and friends who receive them as gifts. My five grandchildren all have a set of the keys and now put them on the Christmas tree each year as their ornament. It is so easy to send as a baby gift and the baby loves them. I have them engraved and it makes it even more special. The keys are safe and so useful.
    Thank you for this wonderful toy.

    For my niece’s first Christmas (about 9 months old at the time) I gave her a pair of Kleynimals and they were, without a doubt, immediately her favorite gift. From the moment she opened them she could not put them down, and even when she was playing with other toys she often had the Kleynimals in one of her hands. My sister (her mom) couldn’t believe how much she liked them. Ordinarily an infant will play with a toy for a minute and then get distracted, but the Kleynimals had serious staying power. It was definitely the winner of Christmas!

    I ordered the keys and flatware for my daughter Maya (9 months) and she loves them! Mom (me) loved the service and attention to my order given to me by Kristen (especially the engraving part which I highly recommend). Her personal note attached to the gifts was also great and made you feel like you know Kristen personally, I don’t lol. I definitely will be spreading the word about this awesome company. Love, love, love all of it from order to arrive! Thank you so much I’m a completely satisfied customer and will be making future purchases as baby shower gifts for family and friends. Rock on Kleynimals!

    I absolutely adore these keys, as does my 7 month old daughter. They have provided hours of enjoyment since I got them 2 weeks ago and have quickly become her favorite toy. They are absolutely beautiful and I love that they are safe and fun!

    I ordered Kleynimal Keys for my 8 month old granddaughter for Christmas. She absolutely loves them, and they really do keep her from grabbing mommy’s keys. In fact, her 3 year old sister is quite fascinated with them too! I’m getting ready to order another for a newborn gift. Very unique, yet useful.

  18. Grace

    I was so excited when I discovered Kleynimals! Babies, especially mine, love playing with keys because of the loud sound and hardness for teething. I cringe every time I see other babies chewing on their parents’ keys with all the germs and toxic metals. Kleynimals keys are the perfect solution, as they are non toxic stainless steel! Perfect! The ability to personalize it makes it even more special. Kleynimals is a must item for all babies!!!

  19. Annie

    We absolutely love our Toy Keys! They’re great quality, easy to carry around, and makes the best jingle to distract my baby! She started teething around 5 months and it really helped. It’s also easy to clean – I just threw it in the dish washer! Thank you, Kleynimals!
