Last week, I got to be the “cool mom” by providing my daughter’s fifth grade class with Halloween-themed temporary tongue tattoos – or rather, Tung Toos. I’m telling you, sometimes it is the smallest things that prove to be the most fun! The kids in her class could hardly wait to head to pick out their favorite creepy Tung Too graphic to put on their tongues.
Exactly what are Tung Toos?
Tung Toos are fruit-flavored temporary tongue tattoos you apply to your tongue. They come in a variety of designs, and are sold 8 tattoos per packet. Some packets are holiday themed, like the Halloween ones I shared at Alyssa’s school.
They also offer packs of Christmas tattoos, Valentine’s tattoos, and even Easter tattoos. Other packets are character-themed (everything from Phineas and Ferb to Disney Princesses), birthday-themed, and the choices go on.
Honestly, there’s a Tung Too for just about every kid…or every kid at heart!
You simply stick the tattoo on your tongue for a few seconds, and then remove it. You’re left with a bit of tongue art! We found that a quick on-and-off action aided in getting a clearer image. About 5 seconds seemed to work the best for us. The truth is, the kids think it is cool even if the design ends up being a little blurry.
My Thoughts on Tung Toos
These crazy things are lots of fun! I think Tung Toos would make great stocking stuffers, goody bag items, birthday party favors, or fun incentives for good behavior and the like.
My girls and their friends liked the fruit flavors: Chillin’ Cherry, Sour Strawbelicious, Wacky Watermelon, Laughin Lemonade, Rockin’ Razzzzzberry, and Painfully Puckering Apple. Even better, these little treats are sugar and fat free. Their website also says that Tung Toos are made in a peanut-free facility – a big win for nut-aware classrooms and homes.
