So far, Wolfie has lost about…hmmm, 5 or 6 teeth now? The first one he lost while we were walking around on Fisherman’s Wharf. We were in a bustling chatchke shop and he triumphantly held it up. “Mama! Mama! My toof!” I squealed in delight….grabbed it, and promptly dropped it. And it was gone. I was crawling around on my hands and knees but no luck. Wahh! Wolfie was awesomely indifferent about it. I was devastated. We ended up drawing a picture of a tooth and leaving that under his pillow with hopes for a visit from the Tooth Fairy. Luckily for me, the Tooth Fairy is a smaht lady, and she came through!
I have to admit, we don’t really have a good system for leaving the toothies behind. I usually try and scare up some lil envelope somewhere. Which was why I was SO THRILLED to discover Toothy! In a word, this little dude rocks!
Toothy is a sweet and quirky lil plushy with a snazzy pair of trousers that have a fun little front pocket—the perfect place for keeping teeth safe while you wait for the Tooth Fairy to arrive. There is also a larger handy back pocket, where you can store the sweet little story book he comes with. Toothy is super cuddly and well made. He’s already become a favorite fixture on the bedtime cuddle circuit!
We have the plaid version but the talented Maranatha of Etsy shop Tao and Me makes them in all kinds of fabric—even slightly sweeter versions in floral or gingham. The shop is updated constantly with different colors/styles.
We looooove our Toothy and I think he’d be a swell gift for any little boy or girl. You can get your own Toothy right here.
Do you have your own special system for loose teeth? And WHAT is the going rate for teeth anyway? We usually do $1 but then he got a $2 bill once….and I think we even did $3 for a particularly tricky front tooth. Are we totally low-ballin’ it or are we being extravagant? I remember getting a quarter for a tooth!
