Little George was born late 2018 and at 6 months old, he received his Mizzie The Kangaroo 100% Natural Rubber Teething Toy and the Mizzie The Kangaroo books from a dear friend. Mizzie was such a hit with George and his family, that they quickly became favourites, and still are!

And so, 4 weeks ago, when George's dad, Paul, saw a joey fall out of her mum's pouch and decided to bring her home - there was no hesitation on what to call her - MIZZIE!!
Mizzie-Roo has moved in with George, Dad - Paul, Mum - Ali and Grandparents - Roberta and Peter, and she gets stronger every day! Mizzie-Roo is also little sister to Rosie, a kangaroo rescued by the family 15 years ago!
