Tooth Fairy Pillows
Today’s latest childhood trend is incorporating tooth fairy pillows into children’s bedroom décor. This fantasy figure celebrates yesteryear’s folklore, which celebrates children losing their teeth with a visit from this mystical, nighttime fairy that deposits money in exchange for baby teeth.
Parents teach children to simply leave their newly plucked baby teeth under their pillows. Instead of parents traditionally entering their children’s room with baited breath, waiting for children to gently move their heads so parents can grasp these durable enamel-coated bones, parents can teach children to place their latest losses in a special pillow.
These tooth fairy pillows are often colorful, which makes losing teeth fun and exciting for youngsters. Many of these pillows feature a secure pocket to hold the tooth, allowing children to place their teeth in a convenient location for the long awaited tooth fairy’s visit. Additionally, parents can further celebrate this monumental childhood milestone by sprinkling glitter dust around the room, allowing children to awake to a delightful fairy wonderland with silvery coins safely deposited within the confines of this pillow’s pocket. Helping turn a possible startling part of childhood – the loss of teeth – into one that is fun and celebrates the joys of growing up, is a great way for children to learn about the importance of dental health and permanent teeth.
