Frequently Asked Questions
Does The Toothless Monster replace the Tooth Fairy?
Not at all! The Toothless Monster experience enhances the regular, old cash-for-tooth swap by giving children a friend that they can actually give "their" teeth to. The Tooth Fairy still collects the teeth, and she still leaves gifts as a "thank you," and her assistants still get to tiptoe through a child's dark room to make sure the process goes smoothly. Good luck!
How on earth did you come up with this?
THIS is the question we hear most, which is often followed by, “you should go on Shark Tank!” See our story in the About Us section. And we just might. :)
When and where will The Toothless Monster be available?
The Toothless Monster first launched exclusively on this website at the end of 2018. We are now busy partnering with specialty retail stores and pediatric dental practices, and plan on adding a store finder feature to the website soon. If your local toy store doesn't currently carry The Toothless Monster, ask them to, and buy something else while you are there!
What is the appropriate age for this product?
The Toothless Monster is designed for children that are about to lose their first tooth or are already losing teeth. Accordingly, The Toothless Monster is recommended for children over the age of 5, which is typically when they begin losing teeth.
What if my child has already started losing teeth?
No problem! Whether it is your child's first lost tooth or their tenth, giving teeth to The Toothless Monster will be the same rewarding experience for both your child and their new friend.
Can the teeth be removed once inserted?
Each tooth is designed for one-time insertion into The Toothless Monster's mouth. Imagine the devastation both Monte and Meli would feel to lose the teeth that they waited so long to receive! And although we love seeing our dentist friends, the reality is that having teeth pulled is never a good time.
What about safety testing?
As with all toys that contain small parts (the plastic teeth), The Toothless Monster is NOT for children under the age of 3. This product is designed for children ages 5+, which is approximately when children begin losing teeth. The Toothless Monster has been independently tested to satisfy the requirements of ASTM F963, the safety standard prescribed by the US Consumer Products Safety Commission.
