DS[5.9yrs] has two wobbly teeth which I can forsee being out within the next couple of days. So what is the going rate for tooth fairy teeth??

£2.50 hmm

My son told me that the tooth fairy brings his friends £2.50

I believed him and £2.50 it is.


I think it's actually a quid.

£2 here for first tooth then £1.

I used to get 10p

It's £1 here, although I may go up to £2 for the larger ones!

DS's friend gets £5 from his parents. shock

Then £5 from his grandparents. shock shock

£1, £1, £1

Only together can we beat this creeping inflation

The tooth fairy has got realy lax lately round our way.
Sometimes --I forget-- she doesn't come the first night and we have to hope --I'm not too tipsy-- she isn't too busy.
And she pays a quid for a nice tooth

My DS told me that our tooth fairy was mean, so it must be me!!

saintmaybe £1.00 until the unions get involved. Those that give £5.00, think of the others in the class. If we want to preserve this tradition every one should be giving the same. Toothfairy should not be effected by the whims of the market!
I don't get grandparents, one min they say your spoiling the kids, next you find out your kid has had 2 milkshakes, cake, sweets and watched telly all in one day. hmm

Lol at a 'nice tooth', purepurple!

Starbear, we have our own union. This is our shop floor. You weren't thinking that we were the management, were you?

Starbear Sun 12-Jul-09 10:49:00

I haven't done commerce since 5th year. Fairy is the worker, making fairy castles with teeth, child holds the commodity (teeth)we pay for the happiness of our children via the tooth fairy so I think we are the management. Go on tell it another way?

Nemoandthefishes Sun 12-Jul-09 10:54:09

£1 it will be then!!

gorionine Sun 12-Jul-09 10:59:08

between 50p and a pound, £2.50 only if it is a gold tooth!

I am baffled by the £5 for a tooth???!!!

saintmaybe Sun 12-Jul-09 11:01:42

grin starbear!

saintmaybe Sun 12-Jul-09 11:03:02

Shit, I guess that makes this the CBI, not a union meeting. How did that happen?

fuzzywuzzy Sun 12-Jul-09 11:04:20

50p, because they're pretty......

Starbear Sun 12-Jul-09 11:06:07

Sorry when you become a parent you sadly become the authority that you fought against as a kid. sad

Takver Sun 12-Jul-09 14:11:09

50p round here

£1 a tooth up here, and a Special Letter from the tooth fairy. (Tooth fairy logos/letterheads available via Google images. )

saintmaybe Sun 12-Jul-09 14:29:59

Ach to your tooth fairy and her special letters. When dd found out about such things from the kids next door, our tooth fairy had to write a letter of apology in gold ink on tiny paper and leave it under a bush in the garden, thus sparking off an onerous correspondance lasting a week.
