zippitippitoes Sat 03-Jun-06 11:17:43

hub2dee Sat 03-Jun-06 11:25:28

They come with ribbons, ghosty.

Does that help ?

ghosty Sat 03-Jun-06 11:28:42

No, no help at all ... what are they?

hub2dee Sat 03-Jun-06 11:32:50

You suck them. Well, they suck them.

Blimey - there really are 2 people int he world that have never heard of bickie pegs until recently.

At least Ghosty has an excuse as she does live on a remote island, but you Hub.....

ghosty Sat 03-Jun-06 11:38:47

You SUCK them ?

Ummmmmmm ..... and what do they DO exactly? Are they sweets?

ghosty Sat 03-Jun-06 11:39:47

They suck them? Who's 'they'? Children? Are they lollipops?

eveloped in 1925 by a leading paediatrician - Dr. Harry Campbell - to provide the correct exercise considered vital to the development of a baby's teeth and jaws and chewing skills - with the added bonus of easing the pain of teething!!
There is still nothing to beat the original BICKIEPEG, made today as it was then from only the finest ingredients.

NO added sugar, sweetner, artificial colourings or flavourings.

Bickiepegs are kosher and are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. Recommended use from age 6mths.

DW has just told me the instructions say they can only suck them for 20 mins at a time and you then need to throw the bickiepeg biscuit thingy away. That sucks (haha).

Here, ghosty.

ghosty Sat 03-Jun-06 11:46:30

1925? Well, what do you know? I never ever ever heard of them .... ever ...
Thanks Hub ... am off to tell the world ...

Did you know that no one in NZ has ever heard of paper maternity knickers?

hub2dee Sat 03-Jun-06 11:52:20

I hope you wear them all the time so that people in changing rooms etc get educated.

Nemo1977 Sat 03-Jun-06 11:58:08

never heard of them either and I have a 2yr old and a 5mth old.

ghosty Sat 03-Jun-06 11:58:32

I told a friend of mine about them recently and she pissed herself ... she said they sounded kinky - along the same lines as edible knickers!
As I recall there is nothing kinky WHATSOEVER about paper knickers

lanismum Sat 03-Jun-06 12:01:13

they always remind me of bonios, erm, bickiepegs, not paper knickers

zippitippitoes Sat 03-Jun-06 12:01:24

they used to come with a safety pin too

NannyL Sat 03-Jun-06 22:27:47

You mean you've never known the joy of finding a half sucked/gnawed bickiepeg down the side of the sofa??

brimfull Sat 03-Jun-06 22:52:11

My dd sucked these all the time when she was teething, remember the soggy thing pinned to her top .

LadyCodofCOdford Sat 03-Jun-06 22:53:24

oh god give it a rich tea fgs

WigWamBam Sat 03-Jun-06 22:55:26

I remember my mum giving my little sister Bickiepegs 26 years ago, attaching them to her clothes with a little pink ribbon ... I also remember having to clean the gooey, sticky mess up once my sister had dropped lumps of the damned things everywhere!
