  • They are so cute I didn't want to throw them away but I suppose I should.

  • Yes I have them in a little jewel box. I'm getting pretty many I should throw them away.

  • Well I have only had 1 to lose teeth and she has lost 2.... although 2 more are about to come out. But for now they are in a ziplock bag in a drawer in her closet. IDK what I will do when all 3 start losing teeth.

  • I keep them in old prescription bottles. I put the child's name on them with permanent marker (after removing the label) so I know whose is whose. Not sure why, but I just don't feel like I can throw them away.

  • When it's one or two it's cute. But when you see a bunch in a baggie it's a little gross! LOL

  • The first teeth I lost I knocked out on the playground so my mom kept all my teeth in the box they gave me at the dentist when they knocked the first two out. It was kind of cool collecting them (I'm too curious for the tooth fairy gig to have worked), a little weird when she gave them to me when my son was born, and time for them to be thrown out when little got tall enough to find them and stack them up on the dining table.

    Don;t know if I'll be able to throw his out though. I'll probably just keep them in a baggie in his memory box.

  • I have a bank shaped like a large tooth on a pillow and it holds all the teeth in order of when they fell out. So yes, I keep all the teeth.

  • My kids haven't lost any teeth yet but I intend to keep them - in a little jewelry box.
