The lowdown: My Milk Toof chronicles the adventures of ickle and Lardee - two polymer clay milk teeth created by Inhae Lee. This adorable blog started life in 2009 after Inhae finished a five year stint working as an artist in the video game industry. ickle (smart, loves reading books and nibbling furniture) was the first milk tooth to share her home with Lardee (loveable and pudgy, with a Mary Poppins-esque red bag) arriving a few months later.

What we love: Each of the photo stories Inhae posts are utterly charming labours of love. She custom makes the props, the models, does the writing, creates the storyboards, takes the pictures and does the colour editing herself which must be exhausting but the finished product is always bubbling over with creativity and spirit.

Look out for: We're not the only ones to have fallen in love with My Milk Toof - Chronicle Books have just published a hardback book which follows their miniature adventures and includes some brand new stories. To celebrate the launch My Milk Toof held a contest where readers could create their own tooth adventure. You can see the results on the Your Milk Toof blog - our personal favourite is The Very Hungry Miko!
