Responsible – Mizzie The Kangaroo is an environmentally conscious brand with a strong purpose: to Develop Young Children Through Fun. They utilise recyclable packaging made of ethically-sourced cardboard, using only minimal packaging when absolutely necessary (i.e. to protect the teethers from dirt and germs). Mizzie strives to be as eco-friendly as possible, printing thank you cards on recycled paper, and shipping with recyclable boxes and minimal brown paper.
Their products are all non-toxic, natural, and made with materials sourced through nature in an ethical manner in their efforts to be as sustainable as possible. These materials include their Hevea tree rubber, paper/cardboard, and water-based paints. Mizzie The Kangaroo also believes in supporting local and national charities; during the recent Australian Wildfires, Mizzie The Kangaroo donated 10% of returns to Australia Zoo’s Wildlife Foundation to help rescue wildlife. The company is also a supporter of the Starlight Foundation.
The Mini Mizzie is a great size to carry in my bag and this has saved me from the babies who don’t want to go into the car seat or pram a number of times.
Like the teething toy, my bub loved the teether. She could hold it easily and loved chewing the knobbly face. I feel reassured knowing that my bub is chewing on, and having such fun with, a product that doesn’t contain toxic materials and is made by a company that prioritises ethical sourcing of materials.
My children always went wild for natural rubber teethers due to their almost skin-like soft rubbery texture. Mizzie also cleverly combines this with a nipple-shaped nose and ears to chew on. The Mini Mizzie comes as an easy to hold ring and is so easy to clean. I love that there’s no way mould can get inside this toy and I can clean it completely. Highly recommend.
We love Mini Mizzie! My 2-year-old loves this teether and constantly asks for it! It fits perfectly into his hand as he gnaws on Mizzie’s ears. He loves playing games with his brother with it, too. I love that it’s made entirely from Hevea rubber. Easy to wash as well.
