So what's the going rate for the tooth fairy these days?

My oldest son, 7yrs old just lost his first tooth. What does your tooth fairy leave?

  • We really don't do the tooth fairy per se, however, we buy their baby teeth.  We usually give them a dollar or two.

  • for her first tooth she got 20 (only planned on 10, but grandpa gave her 10 too)
    for her second one she got 10 (again, i only planned on 5, but grandpa gave her 5 too)
    and wen she looses her 3rd one she will get $ maybe 4..

  • I think it's juzst a $1:00 a tooth. But I guess some tooth fairrys are rich or at least they got good pay.

  • Whatever is in my pocket the night she loses it. Which is usually a few bucks. IF she's been good I will def. pamper her. LOL, probably shouldn't but here soon she will not believe in the toothfairy. So sparing 20$ for a tooth is nothing to me. I mean if she believed in it until tehy were all gone I would be doing a dollar.

  • If they take real good care of the teeth then they get $1.00 if not.......(shame shame) then they only get a quarter. $$$ is very good incentive for taking good care of

  • I don't son doesn't even have teeth yet, lol. However, when he loses them, I'll probably give him $10.00 for the first one, $5.00 for each tooth after. My parents always did a $5 bill and a little toy or something. I used to LOVE the tooth fairy. It was definitely an incentive to letting my mom pull out that loose tooth that was barely hanging in there. :)

  • we usually give 50 cents/tooth, but the bigger teeth, or extracted teeth are worth $1.

  • We give $1.00 per tooth no matter which tooth it is.

  • We give $1.00 per tooth too, just like previous poster. It's enough for one candy bar, or one thing at the Dollar Store or one hot chocolate at Starbucks, and a few times I've had a child save up and buy something that was the price of 4-6 teeth.
