We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...

How did this product make your life easier?  

Charlotte: My son found it very easy to pick up, hold on to and use straight away. It was very easy to keep clean without a huge effort. Small enough that it could be taken anywhere with us. Was also a good distraction for when we're doing nappy change too as normally he likes to get away as quick as possible!

Lucy: The Mini Mizzie makes my life easier as a mum, as I can hand it to my son and allow him to chew on it and play with it at ease, without me needing to be too involved. It has a large round handle, which seems easy for him to handle, therefore I can let him soothe his gums without too much input from me. It is also very light and fairly small, which makes it a great product to put in the changing bag for use on the move.

Kiran: This teether is probably the first teether my baby will sit with longer than five seconds. She is either playing with it or exploring the colours and feel of the silicone and has definitely chewed on it more times then the ones we have bought from asda or tesco. Or even the Chico brand. It's so easy to just take every where too with it being so lightweight and transportable.

Would you recommend this to other parents?  

Charlotte: The ease of cleaning was fantastic. I find a lot of teething toys pick up dirt and dust very easily - especially when covered in drool etc but it just wasn't the case with this. And the ring at the bottom is perfectly sized for my little one - he was able to keep it in his hand easily.

Lucy: I would recommend this product, as it does what it says it will do. My son was able to use the Mini Mizzie to itch/sooth his teething gums. As the product is based on a Kangaroo, it has a pointy snout which he was able to push into smaller spaces to get it where he wanted it to go. It is made of rubber which is easy to clean and hygienic. It was fairly small and lightweight which make it easy to transport and not too heavy for baby to hold.

Kiran: I would recommend this product because of how soft and lightweight it is for my baby. She had really enjoyed the bright colours and design which is really functional for little hands. My baby manoeuvres all the way around it and chews on the ears more and also the nose/ mouth because of the rounded point.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?  

Charlotte: Although it is very reasonably priced and is easy to keep clean, I felt it didn't quite do the job for my son. It is incredibly squishy and now he's a bit older and has a few teeth I feel he needs something sturdier for him to get a better grip on with his teeth. When he was younger it would have been perfect though.

Lucy: My son liked this product, however there were products from another brand that he preferred more. I would however buy this product if the other brand was not available, so I would not completely ignore it.

Kiran: I would choose this product because of the design and also the soft material used. Overall she has loved this teether more than others to chew on and to help soothe her.

What changes would you make to this product?

Charlotte: I would change the texture of the toy. As mentioned above it squashed a little too easy for my son. There was also nothing for him to gnaw on, like a lot of other toys have. Because of this he would often pick it up, put it in his mouth and them reject it quickly as it wasn't quite doing the job for him.

Lucy: If I could change one thing about the product, it would be the material it is made of. The Mini Mizzie is made out of rubber which has quite a strong smell. The smell personally puts me off it, as it is quite powerful and some babies may feel the same way, however my son didn’t seem to mind. I would personally prefer it to be made from silicone, as many other teething products and toys are.

Kiran: The one thing I would change about this design is adding some textures as I have found babies do like the textures.
