The tooth fairy will be visiting my home tonight for the first time ever! (DS1 lost his first tooth today). I used to get 10p but that was then. What is the going rate now?

Dh set a precedent of £5 for first tooth!
I plan to revert to 10p thereafter.

I used to get 50p, which could buy me a quater of sweets off the market to rot my remaining teeth grin. That was 20 years ago though but I wouldn't give more than a pound.

My DS swears it is £3.50 each. We paid him that for a front tooth, but then DP said we had to give him £5 for the next one as it fell out in the same week!!! DS well smug, but looking like a vampire at the moment.....

i reckon a pound is fair, giving too much is silly imo, cos you always have to keep it at that, or up it, thats a fair few quid considering all the milk teeth! smile

£1 for the first and 50p thereafter.
