My Milk Toof–Perhaps the Most Artistic Tooth-related Blog on the internet

My Milk Toof–Perhaps the Most Artistic Tooth-related Blog on the internet

If you’re not familiar with the adorable blog sensations known as ickle and Lardee, you’re missing out. My Milk Toof tells the story of what happens when your baby teeth come back to live with you, and have grand adventures on a miniature scale. Created by artist Inhae Lee, the blog phenomenon has captured the hearts of devoted fans all around the world.

Inhae Lee moved to America from Korea at age 16, where she became interested in animation at a young age. After ickle and Lardee moved in, Lee turned her attention to being their caretaker and photographing their hilarious antics, including trick-or-treating, building snowmen and playing with bubble wrap.


“When I was young, I placed my baby teeth under my pillow and when I woke up I’d find a shiny new quarter. But whatever happened to those little teeth? Where did they go? Would I ever see them again?

Many years later, a little tooth was standing at my door. First came ickle, a smart and inquisitive little toof with a suitcase full of books. Then came Lardee, a hungry fellow with a penchant for getting into trouble. Together these two milk teef keep me company in my cozy little apartment. Welcome home, my milk toof!”

Inhae Lee

inhae_leeLee first developed the concept for My Milk Toof in 2009, when she found herself newly unemployed after working as an artist in the video game industry. After brainstorming and sketching, ickle was born. ickle, whose name is always spelled in lowercase, is a smart toof with a love for books (and David Bowie). Lardee is the larger tooth who likes to get into trouble. Along with Carrot, their couchsurfing goldfish friend, ickle and Lardee first came into the world on and have since graced the pages of their own hardcover books and the walls of art galleries.
