Title: Non-removable snap fastener used to attach a pacifier, teething ring, toy or other article to any garment of children's clothing

Abstract: A non-removable snap fastener used to attach a pacifier, teething ring, toy or other article to any garment of children's clothing. It is comprised of a non-removable female part of a snap fastener, which is attached to any garment of children's clothing, and preferably, though not necessary for effectiveness, incorporated into a decoration of flowers, animals, toys or any other attractive decoration for any garment of children's clothing, created using embroidery, applique, needlepoint or other craft. The corresponding male part of the snap fastener is attached to one end of a strap, having both female and male parts of a snap fastener attached to the other end of the strap, which is used to secure the article onto the strap for the child's use. It is unique in being a safe, effective and attractive means for providing a child with ready access to articles that aid in fulfilling the sucking need of children, providing uninterrupted sleep, relieving the pain of teething and providing amusement and interest for the child.
