    The last 3 teeth have been worth $5, 1 & 2. It just depends which tooth fairy comes!!

    Dds's first tooth was worth 2 from us - but her grandad gave her 5 as well!

    Since then, it's been 1 each - but it ended when she was 9!

    All mine have had 2 for the first tooth and 1 each for subsequent teeth. One of my boys last teeth to fall out was a front one when he was 14. DD is 9, still another 8 to go.

    My DD is nearly 10, has loads more baby teeth to come out, and the tooth fairy gives 1 a tooth.

    I got 50p a tooth, and got 10 when the Tooth Fairy rang the dentist and told him that "I'd been such a good girl brushing my teeth every day, he needed to take some out so she could give me some more pennies", although, I do think there might be something not quite right with that story....

    Like many other posters, our tooth fairy pays 2 for the first tooth and then 1 each after that. DS2 has had 3 in 4 days having lost 3 top front teeth in a row!!

    When one of my teeth came out, i left it under the pillow and the fairy hadn't been, the tooth was still there.
    Then to make matters worse i went the dentist and ............ He charged me.

    Usually 2 & a special new girly pink toothbrush. For her 1st one she also got a little miss book & a teeny wee card hand made by the tooth fairy (aka as magic mum)

    First tooth was 1, 2nd 3rd and 4th 1 too, then dd tried to pull a tooth out then placed bits of screwed up paper to look like teeth in hope she would get some more money. Then the tooth fairy forgot to visit the 5th tooth (i fell asleep) and we came clean about it.

    she got a book about the tooth fairy from my mum with number 1.

    Ds1 has yet to loose a tooth, ds2 has yet to get a tooth

    tooth fairy
    Our tooth fairy paid 5 euros for the first and 2 for each tooth after. It was only 5 euros for the first as we were on holiday and there wasn't a lot you could buy with less money!
    It seems like once one tooth falls out though it starts a chaiin reaction and they all start falling out - especially if they get wobbled for more money!

    50p is what I used to get, ie a piece of silver in return for a tooth

    It's always been 1 a tooth here.

    When my brother got to the age when he doubted the tooth fairy's existence, he decided to blu-tak the tooth to the ceiling above his bed. Somehow my Mam managed to get up there without waking him and stuck the coin to the ceiling
    Here I go again on my own....

    1 a tooth here. But they must be really shiny ones, I used to put all the shiny ones away and use those.

    we pay 2 for the 1st tooth and 1 for each tooth after that
  • zippybungle
    The tooth fairy that visits our house leaves 1 and sometimes a little gift such as a new toothbrush/toothpaste (fancy one with a character on)

    it's 1 a tooth but the first one was 5 because the tooth fairy had a difficult job retrieving it - tooth was accidentally swallowed so she had to magic herself into the digestive system! The life of a tooth fairy isn't all glitter and glam!!
    anyone know if the same applies to son's adult teeth about to be extracted due to overcrowding? he's only 12 - so it seems fair to expect her to call but can adult teeth be ground down into magic fairy dust (for Santa to use) in the same way that baby teeth are?

    20p a tooth (still got the 1st 20p ), I'm 23 now, so I don't know if that's good or bad. One of my friend's kids got 10 recently(!), I was seriously disgusted by that.
