I received this adorable doll from Tooth Fairy Tykes and couldn’t wait to give it to K as she recently discovered she had a wiggly tooth!
I think her exact words when I gave the doll to her were “It’s so amazing, I’m going to go pull my tooth out right now!” and boy did she sure try with no success.
But then one day…
She was so happy to finally be able to utilize the doll. Under her pillow, the little doll slept with her tooth in its tiny little pocket.
Speaking of the tiny little pocket…that is one of the 2 things I would change. The pocket is tiny, and I mean tiny. I was actually concerned about the tooth falling out in the middle of the night. I think a fantastic upgrade would be to make the pocket about twice the size with some sort of velcro closure or a way to keep it shut.
The other thing I would change would be to line the pocket with some sort of wipeable material. I would have loved to be able to wipe it out after use since there was a recently pulled tooth in there. Instead, I went ahead and washed the whole doll. Oh well, that worked too!
The doll also comes with an app timer to help children brush their teeth for an appropriate amount of time and also an e-book download. This doll definitely beats those cheap plastic treasure chests I had for my teeth when I was K’s age, but would I truthfully purchase a doll for $14.99 for a tooth? Not so sure. However, I do believe in supporting companies with heart. Tooth Fairy Tykes regularly donates their dolls to children’s hospitals to help bring a smile to every child. In my opinion, supporting a company that gives back is worth a couple extra bucks.
This would definitely make a cute gift from Grandma or a special bribe if your LO is particularly scared to lose a tooth!
