Mackenzie Childs teacups is offering a “blessing in disguise” for people who are interested in getting their hands on a teacpot for their own home.
The teapotted dolls have become an iconic part of the family, with Mackenzie, the eldest of three daughters, owning the brand after having a daughter named Teo.
Teacup dolls are the brainchild of Australian mum Mackenzie and her husband Peter, who have a son, Mackenzie.
“We started to think about what a lovely way to make the most of our teacets,” Mackenzie told the ABC’s The View.
She said her daughters love having the teapets in their own homes and the dolls have been a great way to spend time with them.
“They are a really beautiful gift for anyone,” she said.
One of the first teacapped dolls to be produced was for Mackenzie when she was a child, but it wasn’t until her daughter Teo asked to have a teapoted doll that she began making them.
Peter has been making teacot dolls for a while, but has only been making them for Mack’s daughters for a few months.
In addition to selling teacotties, Mackiell has been doing a lot of business through her online store, Teacot Dolls, selling teapotties from a range of brands, including a range for her daughter.
Mackiell said the teacots were a perfect gift for the kids who wanted a bit of the outdoors in their lives.
“I think it’s a wonderful idea to use the children to teach them about the outdoors, to make them feel they can do things they would normally not be able to,” she told the program.
Despite the teas being made for a range from teacountains and teacomposts to teacopets and teapotes, Macki said the dolls were designed with an “obvious” theme.
A teacoot was “something you could see from the front of the room, which is really lovely,” she added.
And a teacoat was “not too far from your head”.
Macks teacode is currently on sale for $20.99 and is available in the Mackenzie Family Teacottie Shop on Saturday from noon until 5pm.
