  • 1 BILLION dollars! lol j/k I always got a silver dollar
  • $2 or $3...kids think its a lot!!!
  • I gave my son a dollar every time he lost a tooth.
  • $100,000 in $50 bills, a passport and a 9mm. Glock.
  • I believe that the $1.00 is still appropiate. IF it can be a Silver Dollar; seems to make it a little more SPECIAL.
  • I used to get quarter but, with todays inflation, she better give him a dollar.
  • It's been a bad year for tooth fairies. Baby teeth haven't exactly been in demand lately. Inflation is running rampant. And the economy is very bad. A dollar should do.
  • a 50 dollar savings bond.
  • When I was young I did this thing where I took a 20 from my aunties purse and put it under my own pillow. When I awoke I jumped up and down screaming "He left me 20 bucks" No one wanted to take the twenty away and crush the tooth fairy myth. Thats what they get for playing that game with me.
  • a dollar would be a good amount!
  • I usually go for a toonie ($2 Canadian).
  • Front teeth have gone up in price since we were children. I think I would give a five dollar bill to the front tooth. Only once do you lose it and it plays a very important part in the mouth.
  • it really depends on how much you want to give in the future. if you start big, they tend to expect it. i used to go to the post office to get the gold coin dollars (to make it more magical) and put two under her pillow. later on she ended up having to have 4 teeth pulled because of crowding and they were worth $10 each because of the drama. ++
  • I'm sure that at that age he would be happy with coins.
  • 1.50 enough he can go buy alittle toy, hell be over joyed.
  • What we have done with our six year old is give the gold Sacajawea one dollar coins. He loves it.
  • I always received $1 for each tooth. Of course, it has been almost 20 years since I lost one... When penny candy still cost a penny.
  • I always got silver dollar coins. I think my mom has saved them all in a special jar somewhere too.
  • At least $5!
  • Maybe a quid or 2 but no more.
  • If you are in the US, I would suggest a $2 bill or a special silver dollar.
  • They way kids get spoiled these days maybe throw a cell phone or laptop under there! :-P
  • As a tooth fairy how much are you worth? I would leave maybe a dollar or two!
  • I always gave them a dollar. At that age they dont know a nickel from a rock.
  • I would not leave anything since the tooth fairy isnt real. Just give him 5 bucks for it, instead of lieing to them
  • I do a $2 bill. It's so rare and magical. Makes it seem like the tooth fairy must be the only one who can make them. And if they are found in circulation, they must be from someone who spent their tooth fairy money. My oldest daughter, the only one who's lost teeth yet, thinks they are so special that she refuses to spend them.
  • When my sister and I were kids, we figured out early on that our house, and our grandparents' house, were apparently on different tooth fairy routes. The tooth fairy that covered Grandmother and Grandfather's house, according to historical trend lines assembled and plotted by my cousins, my sister, and me, was no less than four times as generous as the tooth fairy at our house. Is that shocking or what? So whenever any one of the four of us lost a tooth, it meant that we immediately began planning to spend the night at our grandparents' house. (I swear I'm not making this up. You lost a tooth, and it was slumber party time at Grandmother and Grandfather's house -- the guest of honor being the kid most recently untoothed.) Our parents and grandparents understood this, of course, as it was an extremely rational economic decision. Now, 40 years ago, when I was losing teeth, the tooth fairy would leave me 25 cents at my parent's house and a full dollar at my grandparents' house. I'm sure that these numbers have been updated to account for inflation, but I suspect that the 4 to 1 ratio has been preserved. Funny thing -- whenever my sister or my cousins or I lost a tooth it turned out that my parents and my aunt and uncle ended up going out to dinner and catching a movie the very same night. What an incredible coincidence. I'm sure there must be some deeper pattern working that would explain this, but it's still a mystery.
  • i got a dollar for my first tooth...
