Proudly manufactured in Britain, Squidge & Pip were conceived by a mum, Mary Lord, whose personal experience has driven her to create the next generation of premium teething toys. The characters take the nicknames of Mary's two children and the experience of her second child being born with a cleft lip and palate, helped Mary shape the design and features. Inspired by searching for the perfect statement gift for her expectant friend, Squidge & Pip were born from Mary’s passion to create a fun yet stylish toy that blends function with contemporary design. Squidge the Dog and Pip the Cat are made from medical grade silicone which is the perfect density for babies to bite and chew, whilst remaining soft and comforting on their gums. Squidge & Pip have lots of interesting parts and textures to explore orally, stimulating senses and helping babies learn about different shapes while developing the muscles needed for speech and weaning development. Plus, these fantastic toys can be sterilised. Each toy comes with its own handy travel pouch and is beautifully packaged to make that perfect statement gift.
