Our resident Tooth Fairy is caught in a time warp. Her going rate is 50c for each of the two big front teeth and 20c for all other teeth.

I've always given DS $10 and the others will get $10 per tooth when the time comes. It means they can buy something nice each time or save it and buy something bigger next time. I use to get $2 but that was 30 years ago.

$2 here. Gives DS enough to go and buy a Hotwheels car!

Tooth fairy here bring $2 for first tooth and $1 for each after, which is cheap compared to some parents who have told me that the tooth fairy pays in notes, as much as $20 for the first

One gold coin with the magic queen on it.
DD1 had lost 7 teeth before she was 6 so the colour and the queen were more important than the value.

$2. It was $3 when the tooth fairy forgot to come for the very first tooth. Opps! I think she felt guilty!

ds lost his first tooth at 8 months knocking it out so he will get $10 for that one and $5 for the others as tooth fairy will pay the first one when the next comes out naturally

We gave $10 for the 1st tooth and $5 each for the two he has lost since.

the tooth fairy would steel my tooth, in other words my parents were not known to the concept of the tooth fairy and leaving money they would just take it so i wasn't sleeping with it on my bed.
id probably give $5 for my LO when he starts knocking out teeth in a year or two. just something for him to put in his piggy bank. i remember being so excited when i could put a whole note in my piggy bank i thought i was rich. (Oh how wrong i was)
ETA - sorry not really my place to comment my baby is still cooking at the moment so i cant talk based on experience only on what ill likely do.

Our tooth fairy also leaves gold coins - usually one big and one small.

The tooth fairy brings $10 per tooth (in gold coins) and $40 for the two teeth that had to be taken out last week.....DD scored well as she had already lost the two front teeth and then had a second set of baby teeth come up in their place which had to be removed. Bit of a rort really!

Five dollars for the first and $2 for each subsequent one.

wow i hope my boys never hear of these rich tooth fairies...
Tooth fairy here pays $2 for first tooth, $1 for the others... and if they need to be pulled out (DS1 has had 2 removed due to them refusing to fall out) then she pays an extra $1 in pain and suffering...

The tooth fairy gave my DD1 $10 for the first tooth, but it's different to the tooth fairy that normally gives to her at my place (She was at my brother's place lol). The tooth fairy at our house gives either $1 or $2 depending on how shiny the teeth are
Posted 14 November 2012 - 12:08 PM
Some very generous tooth fairies around for sure! Ours only brings $1 a tooth - I have never heard of anyone I know giving more than $2 a tooth (maybe more for the first one).

$3 for the first tooth, $2 for the rest. My kid has read/heard it is 'gold shiny coins' so he got a $2 and a $1 for the first and usually 2 one dollar coins for the others.
He is very happy with that.

$10 for the first tooth, then $5 for subsequent teeth.

$5 first tooth $1 after that
