6 Tooth fairy gifts for kids getting ready to lose teeth faster than that little winged collector can keep up.

You know that time your kid turns 6 (or 5 or 7) and suddenly they start losing a whole slew of teeth in what feels like five minutes? That’s what’s going on in my house right now, as my daughter yanks out tooth after tooth. Seriously, this kid is proactive in the tooth removal department. So it’s only logical that I’ve been having some fun looking online for cool tooth fairy gifts for kids losing teeth. Not that she’ll get one for every tooth; I think the tooth fairy’s bounty for incisors and bicuspids cover that. But I love the delightful...

Tooth fairy pillows that double as awesome kids’ room decor

A giraffe grazing near a hut. A whale swimming past an iceberg. At first glance, these nature-inspired designs just look like fun decorative pillows for a kid’s bedroom. And if that’s all these Mighty Twenty pillows were, I’d still want one for my children’s rooms. But look closer and you’ll see a tiny tooth pocket on front of each pillow that’s in some way connected with the animal. Flip it over and you’ll find a larger pocket in a contrasting pattern stuffed with a tooth tracker journal. Surprise! They’re super clever tooth fairy pillows.

A tooth fairy pillow where any incisor would be happy to take up temporary residence.

When you have a kid losing a tooth, whether it’s the first or the fifteenth, you know how special it can be. Maybe that’s why I’ve always had a thing for tooth fairy pillows, and the lovely, affordable handmade ones from AppleWhite on Etsy just made me get excited for my youngest to start turning her beliefs into dollar bills. (Yes, our tooth fairy offers a dollar. Just one. I know she can probably get kicked out of Brooklyn for that, but tough.) The pillows are shaped like the sweetest cottages, homes, and even teepees, should you have a child who prefers something...

Letters from the tooth fairy – When you care enough to send the very tiniest

Need a little something more special from the tooth fairy than say a dollar under the pillow? We’ve got just the teeny-tiny thing. We fell in love with Leafcutter Designs teeny-tiny letters from the Easter Bunny a few years back, which would rock any child’s Easter basket even more than a 12-inch chocolate rabbit. Checking back with them, we’ve discovered that the duo now offers eleven different card designs with everything from a petite heart, ladybug, or kite imprinted on the front. Just type out your text and they’ll shrink it down to fit and fold it all up...

A tooth fairy box worthy of those special little teeth

On the nights I play “tooth fairy,” the last thing I want to do is wake a child while I shove my arm under their pillow in a not-so-subtle search for a tiny tooth. So I love that one of our favorite beautiful-keepsake makers, Tree by Kerri Lee, has done it again by creating such a special and convenient way to store their little tooth until this fairy can get in to replace it with a little ka-ching. The Turtle Tooth Fairy Box by Tree by Kerri Lee is a cute way to keep a lost tooth handy for...

A tooth fairy keepsake to help you fill in the gaps

The tooth fairy made another visit here this weekend, and while we’ve been pretty satisfied with her—she’s only been late twice with three kids—I’m not so happy with how lackadaisical I’ve been about keeping track of the moments that represent the transformation from toddler to big kid. Want to remember those tooth-fairy days with a special keepsake that your kids will probably hang onto a lot longer than the quarters under their pillow? I’ve found that very thing. {keep reading for the chance to win!} Handmade artist Kata Golda’s Tooth Fairy Keepsake: Under the Pillow Pocket and Memory Book is a...

The real tooth fairy – keep away from open mouse traps

Only recently did I learn that the origins of the tooth fairy may come from a French fairy tale called The Good Little Mouse (La Bonne Petite Souris ) in which a fairy mouse convinces a mean prince to be nice so that his teeth will turn beautiful and white. Yes, it’s a little weird. But aren’t they all? The whole thing is explained on the hang tag of the sweet new tooth fairy pillow, just out now from one of my favorite indie baby gift companies, Petite Miette. L.A. mom/designer Sarah Odenkirk has designed the pillow out of...

Tooth fairy kits for the super organized tooth fairy

Ever since my oldest daughter turned five, she’s been obsessed with losing teeth. And considering many of her kindergarten classmates have already lost two or three, I suppose she has a good reason to think about it. And that means I do too, hence my interest in this hilarious tooth fairy kit from Jillybean Green. Now this is not your average tooth fairy pillow; instead, this kit includes three actual certificates that allows the tooth fairy (ahem) to keep track of everything from which teeth were lost on an actual dental chart, method of extraction, and my favorite part,...
