“Mizzie is a 100% natural rubber kangaroo which would be a huge hit with any baby as it is cleverly designed with a nipple shaped nose and ears. I noticed my son Charlie happily pop Mizzie’s nose straight in his mouth! He was also attracted to the fun, bright kangaroo character which has a variety of angles and parts to explore. The large, but light structure allows even a young child to wave it around. Mizzie also has a squeak which adds extra sensory stimulation and entertainment.
The squeak does mean that there is a hole in the base making it very important to follow the strict cleaning guidelines of not immersing in water, otherwise the inside can become a hidden mould reservoir.
A wonderful, fun, sensory non-toxic teether!”
“Mizzie has quickly become a much love member of our family. Both the baby and the toddler love her and she’s always near by. Easy to grab and chew as well as a fun character to play with. She’s the Aussie teething character that every bub should have. Give her a gentle wipe down from time to time as all that love can get her a bit dirty. A great teething toy that I look forward to gifting to other families in the future.

“Move over Sophie the Giraffe, Australia has released its own teething toy! This sweet little Kangaroo now regularly accompanies my baby boy out and about, and it’s been a lifesaver while he cuts his four top teeth.
The only drawback for us is that Mizzie’s a bit too wide for bub to grip in the middle area, so he often ends up dropping her. But she does have a hardy squeak and quite a thick skin – so I can see her lasting a lot longer than other rubber teething toys.”
“This is a hot favourite! Unique by design, this baby teething toy is tested & certified to all Toy Safety standards in Australia, New Zealand, USA & Europe. It is by far the most unusual & functional when it comes to a comfort toy that also soothes baby when teething. Safe for baby to chew on or play with, it certainly inspires fun when youngsters see Mizzie their eyes light up! The soft non-toxic rubber also works to soothe baby’s sensitive gums. I’m sure this teether could be a Childs comforter for years to come.”
“Love the design, very original. Baby has loved using this.”
