    Q: My lil boys first tooth has fallen out, what is the going rate of the tooth fairy baring in mind fluctuations, credit crunch, stock martket share values etc?

    He's 6 btw...Is a first tooth worth more than others? When he takes out his wisdom teeth in his twenties/thrities, whats that worth?

    weigh the tooth

    First tooth is definitely not worth more - you're about to set a precedent. £1 is still the going rate in our house, less/nothing if it's rotten (only had one of those luckily).

    Typically, but it's weekend I'm afraid...£2 Saturdays, £2.50 Sundays...

    gave my kids £5 for first then £1 for the rest

    It's only £2 when the tooth fairy forgets to come and comes the following night she leaves £2 instead of £1 ...Bad tooth fairy!!

    My son got £1 for his first with a new tooth brush and now gets £1 for each tooth.

    The general consensus is roughly £2 first tooth and £1 thereafter on a little google research! And I'm very proud to say his little tooth was shiny and white! lol!

    Yeah, most have been saying a pound but he was kinda upset about losing his first tooth and I think a pound will be a little bit 'meh'!

    I.O.U. £1... redeemable when 21 years old.

    in his thirties for wisdom teeth? by then it will be about a million, but you will be a toothless pensioner anyway

    Do we add income tax, VAT etc to the price?

    I give my girl £1 but at one fell out when she was staying at her dads and they gave her £2 so i had some explaining to do when she came home and wanted to know why the tooth fairy at dads gives more!

    I know! Thats what all on FB was saying! If I gave £X amount, I'd have to explain why the tooth fairy has a charging scale!

    and just remember that the tooth fairy does get very busy sometimes (i.e i forget!!!) but they have mobiles and are really good at texting to say when they will be coming next!! BTW my son gets £1 for each tooth but got £3 for the first. And I have hidden them all!

    I think the first one is easy to explain a diff cost tho. One of my son's teeth fell out in france and as Grandma was with us, he got 4 euro's but we explained it was due to the exchange rate!!

    Get a fiver under his pillow, you tight ass!

    First one is special make it worth while a fiver at least. Saying that the tooth fairy cost me a fiver every time and I had to make up a little letter too.

    Here is one I found: familytime.com/asp…asp

    About a quid does seem right.

    You could just put the money under his pillow, but it's quite fun to jazz it up a bit.

    We did with our youngest and I do wish we'd thought of it earlier.

    We hit on the idea of putting a note from the tooth fairy with the coin. He ended up with his own personal tooth fairies: Fat Mick and Bert.

    Of course, as the notes came from Fairyland, they had to be a bit odd, so we started doing them in mirror writing, which puzzled the lad no end till we told him to look at their reflection. We put in little titbits of news from fairyland - how the Goblins were making themselves pests paddling in the chocolate fountains and so on.

    Brilliant

    First time he was a bit giggly about it but, as more teeth came out, he got more giggly and embarrassed-but-chuffed. As time went on however, it just got sillier. It got to the point when he'd come into our room in the morning looking quite pleased and embarrassed, both at the same time. We'd ask if anything had happened during the night and he would just stand there giggling. We'd gently probe a bit more and the giggling would get worse. We started laughing as well and it just descended into complete mayhem with none of us able to speak and the tears rolling down my face.

    He's 22 now and still fondly remembers the laughing and his little missives from Fat Mick and Bert.

    Fat Mick and Bert rule. OK

    Just found another card we used, can't remember where I got it from but it did the trick especially when all personalised.

    My 2nd little boy and he is little just turned 5 lost his 1st the other day and his bigguns are coming through, his older brother then told him it's a fiver for the first one, so that's what he got:w00t:

    To be fair we had no change and I wasn't expecting him to be loosing teeth so young, but after the first it's £1-£2.

    In my house the tooth fairy leaves £1.

    However, daughter wanted to keep her first tooth, so she wrote a letter to the tooth fairy asking if she could do that (and put the note under her pillow)!

    Her second tooth came out at school and teacher put it in an envelope for her. However, she dropped the tooth in the playground when she took it out of the envelope to show her friends. She sobbed as she wrote a note to the tooth fairy saying she'd lost it!

    Her third tooth she lost in the Mediterannean sea as she was pulling her goggles off her face and yanked her wobbly tooth at the same time!! More tears as she wrote yet another letter to the tooth fairy!

    Tooth fairies are kind though, and still left £1 each time and took the notes instead of teeth!

    I give my kids £1 for each tooth which they promptly take to the shop to buy sweets!!!!

    Yeah that sounds about right

    Of course, in Terry Pratchett's Discworld books there's a Tooth Fairy. She goes around with a little pair of pliers and, if she doesn't have enough change, she takes extra teeth to the value.

    I think she appears in Hogfather, amongst others.
