can you wave your little toe left to right?

I can wave my big toe independently but all the others can only move up and down, not fan outwards. I've just watched my dc wave their toes outward like a fan.

I mentioned this to dh and he can move the little toes independently too.

So quick (yet pointless) MN survey - can your little toe move left to right independently or not?

He thinks I'm unusual in not

I can!

Myneighboursnorlax Mon 21-May-18 20:22:14

I can move both my little toes left and right really easily. I don’t know anyone else who can though. It’s like my little party trick.

Watto1 Mon 21-May-18 20:22:15

I can. Sorry OP!

Yes. But I can't move them all independently. I'm just sort of stretching sideways and the baby toe moves first. If I stretch a bit further the next one starts to move.
So maybe that's not quite what you're asking. But the cat is fascinated.

No, not at all.

Left, yes

Right, no


TroysMammy Mon 21-May-18 20:25:19

Not at all. All my toes move together and only up and down.

chocolateworshipper Mon 21-May-18 20:25:34

I can. I can also roll my tongue, but cannot wiggle my ears like DH can.

Yes my claw moves left and right.

SendYouUpinFlames Mon 21-May-18 20:26:16

I can also curl the front if my tounge like a mountain in the middle.

How funny, I’ve got my feet under a blanket, tried it out and thought I definitely can’t. But when I look, I can!

dudsville Mon 21-May-18 20:26:40

Yes and those who can't are missing out on a nice stretch.

Only on my right foot.

DrMadelineMaxwell Mon 21-May-18 20:26:43

Nope. My littlest toe sits on top of my fourth toe and I can't move it at all in any direction.

Nope. Even when I fan out my toes, my little toe doesn't budge grin My toes just move over it haha. Learnt something new about myself, thanks

AnyFucker Mon 21-May-18 20:27:03

I can wiggle my ears and make a shamrock shape with my tongue

SendYouUpinFlames Mon 21-May-18 20:27:39

Show him this gringrin

Moussemoose Mon 21-May-18 20:27:59

Yep totally independently of my other toes right and left.

I believe this makes me both big and clever.

Whatififall Mon 21-May-18 20:28:05

I can

goose1964 Mon 21-May-18 20:29:11

BigSandyBalls2015 Mon 21-May-18 20:29:43
