  • I actually never gave my kids money from the Tooth Fairy I actually wrote a little note from the Tooth Fairy with a toothbrush and a book they loved it

  • I think it entirely up to the parents what rate they want to set. It is always a good thing to start small and mabey build up to more as you go.

  • I didn’t know there was even a going rate ! It’s totally up to yourself in my opinion.

  • We also love the little notes – such fun!

  • We pay $1 per tooth. And sometimes a cheeky note if the tooth fairy forgets to pay off for a night or two! You get extra if your dad accidentally drinks the glass of water containing your tooth…

  • We do $2 for the first tooth and then usually just whatever we have lying around (only gold coins usually though) My kids Dad (we are seperated 7 years) gives them a handful of coins or a note if it happens over there and I’ve never agreed but some people grow up with that. It’s really up to you.

  • My kids aren’t old enough for this but when I was young I never got money, I usually got a pack of stickers because I loved stickers. I think I got 5 bucks one time but it was probably only because I lost a tooth and mum didn’t have time to go to the shop and pick up a packet of stickers for me.

  • We do $5 for the first tooth and then $2 for every tooth after that. We also use the tooth fairy to ensure they are brushing teeth properly (as tooth fairy pays less for teeth that aren’t perfectly cleaned)

  • We gave the children coins making up One dollar per their age. So $6. The kids loved counting their coins and adding to their Tooth Fairy Bank!

  • Lot of little coins and a gold coin is always exiting and fun!

  • We did most of the time just a gold coin or alternatively a small gift.

  • We gave a gold coin for a tooth, $1 when they were younger, then up to $2.

  • We have always given $1 for a tooth for the younger children. The older ones only got 20 cents. My children range from 39 down to 8 in age.. Big suggestion though make sure you have some money put aside for it as the “Tooth Fairy” might give more then they were going to. My grand daughter got $20 as “tooth fairy was tired and had no change. Her mother told her that was only because it was a first tooth.

  • i give my kids equivalent to their age. 6yrs= $6

  • My daughter lost her first tooth yesterday, we gave her $5 and a certificate from the tooth fairy (printed off from google). She is 5.
