My youngest Child Nate-no is about to bankrupt the Tooth Fairy by of pulling his teeth out at the slightest wiggle, so that he can participate in the tradition of placing his tooth under his pillow and waking to find that the Tooth Fairy took his tooth and left behind cash as payment for his tooth. What kind of business has my child gotten into?
As soon as I hear Nate-no say “I got a loose tooth!” I can be assured it will soon appear on my desk waiting for him to place it under his pillow that night and hopefully the Tooth Fairy wont doze off before she retrieves her new tooth and pays her debt to this little guy.
This new business of Nate-no’s got me thinking are there other Tooth fairy traditions? What is to going rate that other Tooth Fairies are paying for these precious teeth?
So, First I asked our Facebook friends this question “ Trisha wonders how much the tooth fairy in your house pays for a tooth?”
Then I Tweeted our Twitter followers what the tooth fairy in their house paid? here are a few of the great Tweets we received back:
@MomMostTraveled We do a silver dollar for novelty, but also a small gift like socks or action figures or fancy soap (depending on the child)!
@areason we pay $1 but it has fairy dust on it (i.e. painted with glitter fingernail polish) so no matter how much other kids get, dust wins
@tracey1616 the tooth fairy leaves $5 for the first tooth & $1 for every tooth after & and certif signed by toothy fairy.
@spaboutique My mom used to write TINY notes from the tooth fairy. I loved it, still have them
@MidwestMoms Our tooth fairy still gives $ that jingles – quarters! With the added bonus of a pack of sugarless gum. (Front teeth = silver $)
@BarbaraJones Tooth fairy pays a-buck-a-tooth and maybe two bucks for the front teeth–always leaves a note and sometimes toothbrush or flossers
@amyd76 One dollar…in quarters. We have a tooth fairy pillow. 1st tooth was special…4 quarters and a gold dollar.
Next it was off to Google where I found some great FREEbies to celebrate the loss of a child’s tooth:
