How much does the tooth fairy pay these days?

My dd has her first loose tooth. Her father and I are divorced and we need to make sure that we both pay the same so she doesn't get one thing from one "tooth fairy" and another from another "tooth fairy"

  • My parents were divorced and always took my tooth, so the tooth fairly only came to 1 parents house, there was no double dipping lol. My son has his first loose tooth, we've decided on 5$ for the first and 1$ there after.

  • The 1st tooth gets special treatment- $5.00- then $1.00 per tooth after that. Have fun!

  • The tooth fairy in our house brings $1.00 for a tooth, and $2.00 for a molar, if they ever fall out. My 7 year old has only lost 5 teeth.

  • My son will be 6 next month and doesn't even have any loose yet but I always thought it would be cool to have the tooth fairy leave something a little more unique, like a $2 bill or the dollar coins. So when it happens, we will do something like that.

  • i think the tooth fairy should only come once at who evers house she looses the tooth.. my mom used to go by what the tooth looked like if it was white i would get a 2.00 or if it has a crown it would be 1.00 cus you cant make fairy dust with silver lol

  • I had to do the same thing when my granddaughter lost a tooth while here with grandma. Daddy said they paid a dollar, so that's what I did.
