  • Don't really know. Back when mine where that age I gave them a quarter. That was back in the 80's. should be $5 by now.

  • i can only assume that it depends on the quality of the tooth. HAHAHA! too much candy, not enough brushing.. this leads to less money. this is what i'm planning on doing to my girls HA!
