The Baby Grinch's Mischief Whistle is a post-Plantera pet summon item which summons a Baby Grinch pet that follows the player around. When the player is far enough away, a red balloon will carry the Baby Grinch to catch up with the player. It is dropped by the Ice Queen during the Frost Moon event with a 0.95% ~ 1.67% (3.33% ~ 6.67%) chance depending on the current wave.[1]


  • This item is a reference to the 1957 story How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss, specifically from the live-action movie, which premiered in 2000. In the film, the first of several flashback scenes depicts the Grinch as a baby when deuteragonist Cindy Lou Who asks several of the local residents of Whoville about the Grinch's past.
