These ‘stolen’ teeth sit in a container on a high shelf in our room which every now and again I knock over and get showered in teeth. It’s just revolting.
So I ask him periodically why he keeps them and he shrugs as if to say; well I’ve started now so I can’t stop? And I look at him with my best mum-look; Oh yes you can.
And recently, over lunch, I spoke of husband’s weird tooth collection and a colleague told me about lady on Pinterest who uses baby teeth to make bespoke dolls. She said the whole thing went viral earlier this year and nearly broke the internet – which I missed of course; but you know better late than never, right?
I was so intrigued by the thought that I went online to verify things.
And I kid you not. This is a thing.
If you want to know more, take a look at Mrs McGettrick’s Fuggler Emporium – you’ll find a website dedicated to making these strange-looking HUMAN TEETH dolls. WARNING: It is freaky!
So now I’m faced with a dilemma; do we keep our kids’ baby teeth in a container on a shelf in the bedroom for the next 20 years before we come to our senses and throw them out OR do I have them inserted into a doll NOW and scare my children and all who wander recklessly into our home … what would you do?
