The Smily Mia has a super sweet origin story. It was created by a single dad who saw a hole in the teething market. And who did he name his invention after? His daughter who started to bite her fingers as a baby and inspired this project. The versatile product can act as both a pacifier and a teether, and we love that it keeps kids company while saving parents’ sanity.


The Smily Mia penguin is seemingly simple but it’s actually pretty genius. It’s like a glove that slides over a baby’s hand. In the middle, is a bar that they grab onto, much like they grab onto an adult’s finger. They can then suck on or teeth on one of the penguin’s nipple-shaped arms. The glove-like design makes the silicone product stay in place so that parents don’t have to pick it up a million times like they would with a pacifier that gets spit out or a teether that gets dropped. Sanity: Restored.

And then how cute is the little penguin?! We love how expressive and colorful it is. Shoppers say that even when their baby doesn’t have this thing in their mouth, they are staring at and interacting with it. It’s a pacifier, teether, and lovey all in one!
