Back in May, a tiny, brown box arrived here at Rock Father HQ bearing the mark of a cute, little Tooth Fairy, and a Portland return address. What was inside was a baubleApp, a piece of hand-crafted jewelry that contains an NFC (Near Field Communications) chip, thus making it interactive with a variety of electronic devices. The fairyHeart baubleApp (I'm not too keen on the weird capitalization) is a sparkly heart that features the Tooth Fairy on the front, and is attached to a metal chain. It's a perfect necklace for a girl like my Addie.

Since receiving our baubleApp, the fairyHeart has been issued in a fancier package, consisting of a heart-shaped tin filled with sparkly sprinkles and a note from the Tooth Fairy. At $17.50, it's also a reasonably-priced gift considering that they're hand-crafted.
