  • Tintookies were pixies in the Australian Brownie Guide mythology and this was a common name for Sixes.

    "Tintookies are ground-dwelling spirits. They are extremely inquisitive, but their special interest is helping to make wishes come true when deserved. Nobody has ever seen a Tintookie, as they do their good deeds by stealth." (The Australian Brownie Guide Handbook, 1975)
