Totsam

Similar to the better known flotsam and jetsam, totsam is the generic term for those items discarded by a baby – often thrown out of a pram. Examples of totsam include small toys, fabric books and the classic single glove.

Actually it’s a made up word by my friend Mark Potter. I tried to get it on Wikipedia once but to no avail. Some of those editors have no sense of humour.
