Though I have not lost a tooth in years, she still hangs at the foot of my bed. She is my tooth fairy doll. This little pixie may look like just another rag doll to some, but if you look closely, a little polka dotted pocket is sewn onto her dress that says, "Tooth Fairy." It is in this pocket that a lost tooth is tucked into, to be replaced by some form of monetary compensation for going through the trauma and sometimes tears, associated with losing a tooth.
I love this little doll. With her frosty white yarn hair and sweet little painted face, she represents a little girl that might be the right age to loose her first tooth. This tiny doll is about 10" high. She is all cloth. She wears a pink net tutu and sports white felt wings. She has a ribbon around her neck, which is tied to my bed post.
I think tooth fairy dolls are a fun idea for kids. I am glad I had one. There was nothing quite like the excitement I felt when I woke up, looked inside her pocket and found I was a little richer today, even though I was one tooth less. Though my tooth fairy doll's mission has long since past, she will always hold a special place in my heart.
