Fancy a TellTail?

So what’s a TellTail? A TellTail is a handmade, wearable animal tail for humans. Simple. Available for kids and adults, there’s a huge range on offer.


TellTails Range

My kids have been showing off their dragon moves in our house this week as they now have a Daring Dragon TellTail. It’s caused no end of giggles, and for kids who spend most of their time making up stories and acting them out, it’s just brilliant.

TellTails say:

Wearing a TellTail promotes instant movement in the wearer. Once attached it is literally impossible to not start getting your waggle on. This involuntary movement of the hips leads to a palpable feeling of joy and giddiness which manifests itself in a grin of extraordinary measure not just on the wearer, but on those around the wearer too. We call this tail effect.

So true. As soon as both of my kids put the tail on, the waggling began. And it does not stop until that tail comes off! I had a lot of ‘too blurry’ pictures for this one, as they couldn’t keep their tail still – the bottom one of Little Man will give you an idea of the clompy dragon moves he had going on…


This TellTail has receivedΒ a lot of attention so far and has stood up to it well, remaining perfectly in tact. It’s been pulled about, cuddled, squeezed, jumped on, and of course, waggled. It’s on a thick and sturdy elasticated band, as you can see on Boo’s photo there, and it feels well made and robust. It fits both of them well (they’re 6 and 3), and is one-size for kids, allowing them to adjust to different shapes and costumes, as they needn’t ‘attach’ to anything.

I can see these being great for Halloween, handy for the many dressing-up days they seem to have at nurseries, schools and parties these days, and they’d make quirky and fun Christmas gifts. TellTails retail from Β£18, and you can find them on Facebook and Twitter.

I now have one TellTail up for grabs (winner can choose the tail), entry is via the rafflecopter below. The competition is open to UK entrants only, and closes at 12am 10th November 2015. Good luck!

  1. Oh wow these are just so “WOW”! From the moment I laid eyes on this post I had such a smile on my face, and as I continued to read this lovely and fun filled post it only got bigger. This is such a infectiously happy post. You can literally envision Boo and the Little man having a blast as they got their wiggle on. I can just see any child who’s lucky enough to have one of these having hours of endless fun!xx

  2. Oh my gosh, these are so cool! My favourite has to be the squirrel – when I was a little kid I wanted to be a squirrel and went everywhere with a scarf stuck down the back of my tights! πŸ˜€

  3. It would have to be the dragon one,demonstrated wonderfully by your two lovely children,the s shaped one is lovely too but I must be having a mental block as I can’t work out what animal it’s meant to be !

  4. Hi Jocelyn, how great are these? I remember trying to fashion tails out of bits of rope or old tights as a child and would have loved one of these. How can a person be an animal without a proper tail?


  5. I didn’t know you could get these; I recently saw Nichole Galicia on the Sky Sport’s F1 Show (Ted’s Notebook) from Mexico City with one and thought they looked fab then, and now I see this competition to win one, wow. I’m sure Nichole had a cat’s tail.

    If I was lucky enough to win I’d love to win the fox’s tail.

  6. My daughter is REALLY into dance and movement. She doesn’t stop! This would be perfect, all the tails are great my favourite being the Dragon but my daughter would opt for the fox.
