The Binky Breakup

Fun Farewells

Check out these clever ways to make pacifiers disappear.

Binky Fairy
When Sandy South's daughter, Kasey, was 2, the Castle Rock, Colorado, mom put the last pacifier under Kasey's pillow one night. "I told her that the Binky Fairy was going to take it because she was a big girl now and a new baby needed it," says South.

Pacifier "Present"
If you know someone who just had a baby, ask your child to wrap up her binkies for the newborn. Trash them when she isn't looking.

Toy Trade
Bundle up your child's pacifiers and take them to a toy store so he can use them to "buy" something. He can hand the bag to the cashier as payment while you slip her the money for the new toy.
