Once you have your tonsils removed, you might need a cute replacement -- how about this tonsil pin? It just wants to jump back into your mouth and behave. This sweet little 1.25" printed aluminum tonsil pin comes packed on an educational card, was designed in the USA and made in China.
They took your tonsils, so take them back in the form of a huggy tonsil plush or wearable happy tonsil pin. Tonsil surgery was never cuter or more fun. What do tonsils do? Tonsils trap germs in your mouth. These blobs of lymphatic tissue battle bad guys! There are four types of tonsils: adenoid, palatine, lingual and tubal. Exciting spots such as tonsillar crypts and Waldeyer’s Ring make your mouth sound like it’s straight out of Tolkien. It's an immune system hero!
Tonsil surgery may not be fun, but it sure is common! There are a half-million tonsillectomies every year in the US! This is far less than it used to be, however. Because tonsils are one of the organs you can live without, surgeons removed them to help solve sleeping problems, reduce infections and keep tonsils in creepy jars in their basements. Sorry, that last one is not true. I'm lying. Anyway, it's one of the most common surgeries for kids under age 15.
Reward the ENT surgeon who stole your tonsils with a cute smiley tonsil pin! Nothing could be cuter to wear on scrubs, white coat or hospital badge reel. Care teams love little gifts!
