Tooth Fairy Rates?

Postby mutantseabass » Sat Aug 05, 2006 4:09 pm

My son took his first step into manhood today and lost his first tooth. I was wondering what the going rate for a tooth is from the tooth fairy these days? I cant even remember what I got when I was a kid, but im sure inflation has caused the tooth fairy to have to up the rates.

HAHAHA your parents are sick sick people.


I usually got around a dollar or 2, sometimes my mom would give me a $2 bill so it was something kinda special(this was back when they still used those)

I used to get $.25 when I was kid and losing teeth (some 30 years ago) but when our eldest started losing her teeth the going rate?

$5.00 big smackers!

Funny, I was just discussin this with a co-worker the other week. She said she gives her kids $10 for the first tooth they lose, then $5 for every tooth after that.

I remember getting $1 when I lost teeth.

I understand inflation, but $10 for a tooth? That's ridiculous.

They had quarters back then??? I thought you would have gotten 3 animal pelts and a new piece of flint.
