The £54,000 platinum dummy ©Russell and Case Jewellers

The world’s most expensive dummy has been made in Liverpool.

The extravagant solid platinum pacifier – weighing more than 250 grams – was made to launch the North West’s Baby and Toddler Show this weekend.

The dummy is thought to cost around £54,000 and was created by Matt Case from Russell and Case Jewellers in the Bling Bling building on Hanover Street. It is worth five times as much as the previous record holder – a $17,000 white gold and diamond dummy in the US.

Visitors to the event, to be held on 2nd and 3rd February, will see the soother displayed at the BT Convention Centre.

Manager of Russell and Case Jewellers and creator of the dummy, Matt Case, said: “The UK Baby and Toddler Show approached us to do something really bold and really different so we decided to make the world’s most expensive dummy and put our own twist on it.

“The previous one is from America so for Liverpool to now have the world’s most expensive, it is exciting. We took a normal baby’s dummy and scanned it and had it cast so it just looks like any other baby’s dummy but it’s made in platinum. It’s full sized; it just weighs an absolute ton!”

Marketing and events manager, Laura Davies, said: “We can’t wait for it to actually arrive at the show and for all the customers to come down and see it. It’s just pure bling, how can it not be? Especially in Liverpool; I think it’s the right place for it to be showcased.

She added: “The baby and toddler show is the biggest of its kind, especially in the North West, and to have the most expensive dummy in the world just showcases how big the show is as well.”

Around 200 local, regional and national exhibitors will be providing a wide range of baby and toddler products and offering advice to expectant mothers and families.

Tell It Once And For Autism

Honoring my mother here will help you with some original parenting tips; I promise.  Do you have an extremely difficult time getting your children from young ages to teens to do work around the house?  Have to justify to the younger ones why the older one’s get more money?

My mother’s system is full prove.  Mom gave us age appropriate tasks.  Here comes the trick.  Tell the kids, “Any money you find you can keep!”  This system serves as a tracking and monitoring system.  If your memory is lacking; write down where, how much money and the task assigned to each child.  If all the money is gone, then the child should have cleaned well.  You have to hide it good enough to get the results you want.  Design the task so it is fair for the child’s ability.  We were motivated to do the chores for what ended up…

dummyAs a parent, you are best placed to decide on the right time for the dummy to go – it’s your decision.

Sometimes children decide to give up their dummies by themselves. Most often, parents are the ones who decide. Try not to feel rushed or pressured by the reactions of family, other children or even strangers.

Your child is likely to have become very attached to the dummy. Touching and sucking on the dummy will be comforting. Like other attachment objects, dummies can help young children manage everyday stress in their lives.

But there comes a time when the dummy has to go. Your child will probably not find it easy to part with. So if you feel it’s time for the dummy to go, a gradual approach is the fairest and easiest.


When you’re ready to stop or reduce your child’s use of a dummy, the following ideas can help.

  • Take some pressure off by reminding yourself that sucking a dummy never becomes a lifelong habit. Many children will stop using a dummy by themselves. 
  • Choose your timing. A period of change or stress for you or your child might not be a good time to give up. 
  • Talk to your child about giving up the dummy, if your child is old enough to understand. 
  • When you and your child are ready, begin by restricting dummy use to certain times and places, such as in the car or cot. This gives your child a chance to get used to being without the dummy. 
  • Encourage the use of other comforters such as a blanket or teddy, if these are more socially acceptable. 
  • Once your child is coping for longer periods without the dummy, set a time and date – then take away the dummy. 
  • Mark the occasion of becoming dummy-free with a celebration or special reward. 
  • Finally, try not to turn back. No matter how well you have prepared your child for this change, expect some discomfort and some protest.
