Forget the gossamer wings, wispy tutu, and flaxen hair — that’s so 2008.
This year we’re getting the job done without all that flittering and fairy dust.
Just slip that incisor, canine, or premolar into a Mindy and Lola tooth pillow, place it under her regular pillow, and head off to dreamland.
Each tooth-shaped pillow is lovingly hand sewn of cotton, fleece, and funky fabric remnants and then embroidered to add a little character. The handy pocket holds both tooth and cash safely.
No two are alike and special orders — colors, rotten teeth, whatever — are welcome.
