We always got a gold coin. Mum told me once that you got two dollars for a really clean tooth, only one if you hadn't been brushing properly

First tooth - how much?

Our $20 was never a note though...it was all in coins. We used to leave the tooth under an upside down wine glass on the table, and in the morning the glass would have heaps of gold coins and glitter inside. It was really quite magical

First tooth - how much?
We do $20 first tooth, $5 others, $10 if dentist pulls it! (SD has had to have a few pulled) and there's always a note from the tooth fairy!

My ds got $1 for his first tooth and when his 2nd tooth came out he said "I got a gold coin last time, maybe this time I'll get a silver coin" (said with great excitement! ). He got $1 again though

We give $2 which my DS is thrilled with
On a side note, for me personally, everything is becoming about more more more. christmas, birthdays, easter, tooth fairy, when does it end? No wonder we live in a society where so many people have things piled up on credit. It's as if their is an expectation now to have more........
(not that giving a large sum for a tooth means you are going to end up with a huge credit bill, but you get my drift )

I was thinking $2 and glad to see that seems to be a common amount, should be right for the first few. I also like the idea of $1 per year of age - this will be good once she's older (and knows who the tooth fairy is).

Dh gives $5 or $10 depending on tooth size lol! If it were up to me a gold coin would suffice lol
