Ever since Mavis was a baby she loved when I sang about flying creatures, so these colorful and (as Jonathan always says) “awesome” pens with feathers on them are perfect. No biting the head of a bird required! A bonus perk? They just might be the thing to encourage my grandson, Dennis, to find his own bat wings and fly!
Shop them at Hay Mini Market
As sharp as fangs but much more convenient for hanging items on the fly, these fun pushpins are a bunch of fish eggs—and raw treats have always been a favorite of mine and Mavis’. Just don't let anyone try to eat them (unless he has metal teeth, of course)!
Shop them at Urban Outfitters
If your beloved pack of wolves back home ruins everything they get their paws on—a fact of life that Wayne and Wanda know all too well—you might want to buy this journal that begs to be destroyed as the school year goes on in bulk.
Shop them at MoMA Store
Protect your little monsters’ gear with a spiky backpack that brings out their inner beast (Dennis gives it his seal of approval).
Shop them at KarmaKiss
En Guarde! This pencil is mightier with this sword eraser (and another of Dennis’ top picks).
Shop them at Monkey Business
I made sure to keep Mavis’ room protected by keeping a chatty shrunken head on the doorknob. If you don’t have one of those handy, this guard dog would be a great addition to your kids’ bedrooms, even if this one only has one head.
Shop them at Target
Everyone who has a reflection needs a place to check and make sure there’s no lipstick on their teeth or fur in their fangs in between classes. This one does all that plus it has a useful pocket.
