I use to get a quarter when I was younger. Now my kids get $5.00. Yes $5.00 for a tooth. I wonder what its going to be when my kids have kids. Wow what a thought.

Okay now. Remember this would you please.... There is NO such thing as the tooth fairy. the Easter Bunny and Santa both say she/he is a fraud. They only want your enamel is all. HAHAHA!! My kids are 28 and 30 and they would get at least a dollar. Now days my daughetr gives a dollar or two as well. I have known some to give $5. Too much for such a small piece of enamal I feel though. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I was born in 1972, and as a child growing up in Toronto, I recall getting anywhere between 25 and 75 cents per tooth. My older son was born in 1999 and the twins in 2001, and their first tooth lost got them $2 (in coin form... gotta love those toonies! :D ). For each and every other tooth, they get $1 (in loonie form of course! ;) ). I"m thinking that molars will land them a toonie as well, but that will depend on what the tooth fairy has available on those days. One thing I do make sure of, is to NOT have the boys put their teeth under their pillows. Instead, they get a small shallow plastic cup from our kitchen cupboard, and put the tooth in it, on their bedstand. In the morning when they awake, their money is in the cup in replacement of the tooth. I have explained to the boys that the tooth fairy just doesn't have time to try and find the teeth under goodness knows how many pillows each and every night, and so to make her job easier, the cup system works well.

The older boy will be 9 in May, and the twins just turned 7 a couple of weeks ago. So our home is in prime tooth outage season. :P

Hmmm... nothing. I have to say that over here, we don't believe in toothfairies. It is to the dentist if we have a toothache or we pluck out the tooth ourselves. We don't keep the tooth and no toothfairy.

Right now the tooth fairy that visits our house gives $1.00. The last visit was in September when my 7 year old lost his first tooth. He hasn't lost any since, but with him and 2 little brothers ages 5 and 2 we should have many visits still to come.

Oh we did as well ...we used to get so excited...but the tooth fairy used to bring a three penny bit or a sixpence!!I think things are a wee bit different now though..i reckon the tooth fairies probably leave around a £1 just hope that they dont lose too many teeth at once!!

After you factor in inflation, adjust for the gross margin and incorporate the falling value of the dollar, I think $1.00 is fair. (please don't respond to this unless you realize it is a joke)

I don't really know. My kids know the toothfairy isn't real and even if I pretend they say "The toothfairy is not real." My oldest son I just gave him a little money as a treat and my other two sons have not lost a tooth yet.

The tooth fairy would leave me and my sister a quarter a tooth. Five dollars seems too much for me, I think that is a bit much - I mean they still are little kids.

I guess I may have been excited about getting my nickle or dime when I lost my tooth but I don't recall it being a huge deal. I guess we gave the kids a quarter for the older and up to a dollar when the last one was loosing her teeth. xoxoxoxoxo
