A fun tissue holder to get kids smiling through the phlegm.

Fun tissue holder shaped like a whale | ShopSparklyPony on Etsy

Kids will always have runny noses. Always. So I’m all for adding a little fun to the dreaded Parental Nose Wipe with this adorable Whale Tissue Holder we spotted at Etsy shop ShopSparklyPony.

We think that kids’ tissue holders can be a little corny at times, but this little whale is a charming work of art. Lovingly hand crafted and–get this– “individually tested for proper tissue-release,” each whale is stamped, dated, signed and numbered so you know your Moby Dick is an original. Because you know that’s just the kind of thing that kids care about when they’re home with a miserable cold.

With so many fun colors available, the whale tissue holder would be a sweet bedside addition to any child’s room. I can’t stop chuckling when I see its content little smile, that seems to indicate that spraying tissue out of its blowhole is the best thing it will do all day.
