Would it be unreasonable if the tooth fairy left "parking change" (but to the correct amount) rather than pound coins?!!

But it won't be gold and shiney.

Nah, so long as tooth fairy visits I'm sure child will be thrilled with whatever form the reward takes!

I thought tooth fairy money had to be silver? Or am I a bit dense on this matter?
Also, (sorry to hijack slightly) how much is normal for the tooth fairy to leave? grin

No! It's got to be a proper coin!!

our tooth fairy has been known to "borrow" from the child's piggy bank before

Not at all. Perhaps the tooth fairy might leave the coins in an envelope to keep it all together. Maybe even with a little note or fairy picture (from the fairy internet! wink)

Our tooth fairy has even been known to be a few days late. What with the cut backs and tooth depreciation confused

My cynical 5 yo told me today that the tooth fairy wasn't real, no fairies are real apparently.

Our tooth fairy didn't turn up last week - we used the excuse she had lost her own tooth and had to wait in for the tooth fairies fairy... When she did turn up, it was with mixed coinage!

Lol, I used to leave a bunch of silver coins amounting to $1 that I found at the bottom of my handbag

I felt a bit hacked off the other day as my children nearly heard a strangers little girl gleefully announce that the tooth fairy left her £10 whilst the dad mouthed 'first tooth' at me. Reason being I can't afford that much, didn't know such ridiculous amounts were bandied around by other parents and felt sad that if they'd heard I'd have had my work cut out trying to explain the toothy fairy didn't rate the little girl above them even though she gave them £9 extra.

Guess the tooth fairy is like father Christmas...some children get bought one or two presents from him and others get the world and more!

I've seen me raiding the 2p jar when a tooth has unexpectedly fallen out and I have no money in the house. I do shine them all up first though. The tooth fairy always gives a pound and leaves a note in this house.

$100 like the Kardashians shock

Irrelevant to your question but rural tooth fairies have a big catchment area and often don't arrive on the first night

We are on a wobble watch for the first tooth. Didn't even think about how much to leave! Is it just £1 then? As shiny as poss...Or a big silver 50p?

I can happily report this morning that mixed coinage is apparently fine! bob £2 is going rate round here for first and £1 thereafter. Some in DS class have too received ridiculous amounts for first tooth but can't remember what excuse I came up with. Thank you for your responses, note yes rather like FC especially when he leaves some children iPads!
