Tooth Fairy Rates?

Moderator: Football Moderators

Postby Omaha Red Sox » Sat Aug 05, 2006 8:44 pm

My kid's 6 and hasn't lost a tooth yet. We hear that the later they lose their teeth, the healthier they are, so we'll see. I was thinking around $5 a tooth.

I was never given money by the tooth fairy, because he didn't exist. Neither did the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus.

WTF?! What do you mean Santa Claus isn't real?

Forget Santa Claus, I knew he wasn't real!

You've got to be joking about the Easter Bunny. I just saw him in the mall in April.

My dad had the belief that if you tell a kid that the tooth fairy, the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, etc. were real, and then they find out they're not, that a kid would think 'well, what else isn't true?'.

I guess I can see the point there. I found out there wasn't a Santa Claus when I found my presents in the basement one year. That killed off the Easter bunny as well. Didn't make me question anything else. I'd say I turned out ok.

I always got a dollar. Anything more than that seems a little ridiculous to me.

Note to self, remember this thread when my sons start losing their teeth. But, by that time, I am going to have to open rob a bank 8-o

BTW MSB, I got a quarter and then it worked its way up to a dollar :-]

$5.00 big smackers!


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


Didn't Jesus occasionally drop by and give Cap a new pair of sandals? ;-7

I started losing teeth in the mid 80's so bear in mind inflation, but I got a quarter from the Tooth Fairy. I think by the time lost my last tooth the going rate was a buck.

in my family it was usually a dollar, but i seem to remember getting 25 or 50 cents occasionally, and sometimes up to two. lol my brother got four teeth pulled when he was younger. he got ten bucks from the tooth fairy for not crying. :-b B-)
