My son has just lost his first tooth, and I was just wondering. How much dose the tooth fairy charge these days?

Thanks in advance smile

Whatever the biggest coin in my purse is, normally 50p or £1

HighwayDragon1 Sat 06-Aug-16 09:41:01

£2 for the first one, and each of the front 2, £1 for the others

Tuiles Sat 06-Aug-16 09:41:11

£1 here, or €1 (why do their teeth always fall out on holiday? )

VioletBam Sat 06-Aug-16 09:41:14

A pound! And don't do what I did and let the fairy leave little notes written in TINY writing.

it's cute the first time but by the time the child is 10 and still expecting that level of craftsmanship when a tooth falls out, it wears thin!

The fairy should leave one pound and that's that.

We do 50p for a tooth because it's a big coin mostly and it was what I got as a child.

The tooth fairy didn't come during the heatwave as it was too hot to fly I forgot so doubled up that tooth to a £1.

I have heard that some parents give £5 per tooth though shock

Mine get 50p or £1 depending on the change I have

Dd has SEN and doesn't understand the concept of money so she gets a small gift from tescos . With my dss' they got the biggest coin in my purse, which was usually €2.

£2 for the first one and £1 for the rest.

BillyNotQuiteNoMates Sat 06-Aug-16 09:45:55

And if the tooth fairy forgets can't get across the room for the mess, then that's ok as well!

A super sparkling £2 coin here. It's the going rate at our school though some parents like to out do others and give £5 notes biscuit

Geekmama Sat 06-Aug-16 09:51:27

Awesome!! thank you allsmile! a £1 it is. A fiver is a crazy amount. confused

Rifleponyandme Sat 06-Aug-16 09:53:32

My ds just lost 1st 2 teeth wed and thur this week he got 10 for 1st tooth then a fiver for second will just give 1pound for rest of teeth

My DH bought me a couple of tubs of ice cream on behalf of the tooth fairy when I had my wisdom teeth removed. grin

The tooth fairy leaves an iPad under the pillow now, keep up OPwink

YumYumThePig Sat 06-Aug-16 09:56:31

£1-2 and a sprinkle of fairy dust glitter

Rifleponyandme Sat 06-Aug-16 09:58:29

U can download an app called icaughtthetoothfairy and u can photo shop wee toothfairy onto a pic of dc sleepinging i put glitter on windowsill and made wee feetprints in the glitter and photoshoped a fairy on the glitter ds loved it really made it special for him

TheFlyingFauxPas Sat 06-Aug-16 09:59:02

She brings £2 here but the rule was can't be spent on sweets or it would disappear hmm £5! Oh no. She can't bring notes! That's so wrong. Has to be a coin! Ds also had a little pot to put tooth in. TF would. Put coin in their. It can be really hard to find a teeny tiny tooth under a pillow in dark without waking child! I would sneak out pot put money in and replace

HerRoyalFattyness Sat 06-Aug-16 10:00:02

£1 for the first one and 50p for the rest.
It's not a lot but DS1 seems very happy with it.
DD and DS2 are still only babies. None of them have all of their milk teeth yet.

MsJamieFraser Sat 06-Aug-16 10:00:19

£5 note left with a letter next to the fairy door.

Rifleponyandme Sat 06-Aug-16 10:00:55

This was the photo

roomonmybroom Sat 06-Aug-16 10:01:33

£2 or £1, depending, but one of my young nieces leaves £10 and £20 shock ridiculous amount!

Rifleponyandme Sat 06-Aug-16 10:02:04

Toothfairy

You would probably get "traffic" in _Chat, Geek, for future reference.

It's a quid here for every tooth.

The tooth fairy gives coins it's always coins.
