Help: Going rate for the tooth fairy?

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by rico_the_redneck, Mar 12, 2007.

  1. My 6-year-old lost her first tooth last night while she was sleeping. Any of you other parents out there know what the going rate for the tooth fairy is nowadays? When I was a kid it was like 50 cents a tooth. I know it's got to be exponentially higher now some 30 years later! Bottom line: how much money should my daughter find under her pillow tomorrow morning?

    50 cents? I got a fucking quarter.

    We initially gave them the Gold Sakajewea dollar coins. Or a $5 bill.

    A buck should do it.

    First tooth = $5.

    Next couple = $2.

    We're down to $1/tooth these days.

    Ya, just an American kid wants to wake up to: three quarters, a nickle and two pennies (or, the equivalent of a loonie) :D

    It was a dollar the last time the tooth fairy visited our house, which was about 7 or 8 years ago.

    Dollar. No need to set any higher precedent than that. Otherwise, she might start yanking them out just to raise money for video games.

    Gave the gold/brass dollar (Sakajawea) to make it special; then gave two old silver dollars.

    A dollar should do the trick. Kids haven't figured out that inflation thing yet.
