$5 the first one.

I explain the difference between other kid's is based on the health of the tooth, so drink milk & eat broccoliChat Icon

$5 for the first tooth.

And his twin who has yet to lose a tooth got 4 quarters for patiently waiting, since the dentist told him 11 months ago one of his teeth was loose. The son that lost a tooth was going to give his twin a $ so I felt bad that he was willing to give away his money.

We were thinking $2 for every other tooth.

Re: x-post - Tooth Fairy

We don't usually do money, we do gifts. Tooth fairy left a very small, but awesome army truck under my son's pillow when he lost his first tooth last August. Chat Icon

For the next tooth, it was a small race car.

All toys were under $5.

I was caught off guard for the third one, (and he also didn't right a note to the fairy, which is a prerequisite for getting a toy:)) so tooth fairy left $1, which is rated highly in our house because that's what you use to buy ice-cream on Ice-cream fridays in school cafeteria. Chat Icon

DD received $20 for the first, $10 for the second and prob around $2 to $5 for the rest. Her little brother got $5 also because she asked the Tooth Fairy in her note she wrote.

Amelia got a pretty little bracelet and $2. She was so proud of the bracelet and showed it off to everyone that it totally trumped the cash.

I swear my kid makes out like a bandit Chat Icon
Growing up I got $2-$5.
Apparently in DH's house it was a big deal.
We wound up giving $20 for the first tooth and $5 for each after. Once in awhile a $10 if that is all the tooth fairy had on her that night Chat Icon

Plus the grandparents all give $20 every tooth.

Maybe I should start loosing teeth Chat Icon
