This Tooth Fairy Pillow sports a fun bicuspid shape, a big pocket for holding money, dental floss, fairy dust, etc., and a large hanger for placing over a bedpost or doorknob.

My great-nephew recently celebrated his third birthday and DesignWorks came to the rescue to help create a car mat community for his special day.
