So what's the going rate on teeth these days?

DS son has his first loose tooth. I was thinking a silver dollar. I don't want him to get ripped off.!

  • We give a dollar. One time I didn't have any money in the house so I gave her some left over tokens from the roller rink, she thought that was the most awesome gift ever! lol

  • I gave my son a dollar for each of his 2 teeth he's lost so far. My hubby thought that was too much, but I thought it was good.

  • Around here it ranges $1-$5 per tooth. I try to stick closer to $1 but the first one we gave him $5

  • I have been saving up the gold dollar coins for when my DD gets to the point that she will loose teeth.

  • Damn, some of you ladies spoil your kids.
    I would say no more then a dollar, no less then a quarter.
    Five dollars to 10 dollars is a ridiculous price for teeth. Those kids are going to be rolling in cash by the time all of their teeth are gone.

  • Damn I use to get 25 cents... 50 if I was lucky... LOL Granted I know the two youngest kids got around five bucks....... My kids will get like a dollar I think.
