  • I always have $5 and a letter written from the Tooth Fairy and they loved the letter more then the Money lol

  • We do $2 a tooth with a sprinkle of glitter in the water…

  • We always gave $2 per tooth, but that was a while ago now.

  • my son had been given $2.00 for each tooth from the tooth fairy, and when he got a little older, it would be able $5.00 He still has some baby teeth. He didn’t lose his first tooth for ages.

  • Our tooth fairy gives $2 per tooth regardless of size.

  • Wow!, Just looked at some of the answers and can’t believe how much children are getting for their teeth. If I was a child I would pull all mine out, what a gold mine Ha! I used to get 5c (6d) to (1/-) 10cents. Maybe mums should leave a toothbrush and floss with the money for their new teeth. love to all Lyn

  • Our tooth fairy used to leave $2. Up until they turned 7 then it has gone up to $5.

  • I would say a dollar for the smaller teeth. Definitely more for molars as they’re bigger, so two dollars for them

  • The tooth fairy at our house gives $2 I think that’s plenty!

  • My nephew got $10 for his first tooth which I thought was a bit much.

  • My grandson is five and I was astounded when the tooth fairy left him five dollars! I think depending on the age a gold coin is appropriate for five year olds. Perhaps 8 or 9 year old, if they believe then I’d give $5.

  • $2

  • I gave my son $10 for his first tooth and a gold coin for every tooth after that

  • $2 for each tooth, which went up to $2.50 if my child pulled the tooth herself (tooth fairy gave her bravery money).

  • $1 for ordinary teeth and $2 for molars. :-)
