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.
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.
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 received 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 £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!
There’s an extensive range of TellTails available, so which is your favourite TellTail?
