Even The Tooth Fairy Is Cutting Back

Today is National Tooth Fairy Day!

Do you remember back in the day when we couldn't wait for the tooth fairy to reward us for loosing a tooth?  Well, times are changin'!  

The Tooth Fairy is cutting back and tightening its belt According to a new survey.

When you add up all of the kids waiting to rewarded last year, the Tooth Fairy handed out $271.6-million for lost teeth last year.

Kids received an average of $4.13 per tooth in 2017, a decrease from $4.66 in 2016.

Overall, 84% of homes with children get a visit from the Tooth Fairy, with 95% of kids getting money for their teeth

Not every kid gets their treat right away though, with 55% of parents admitting the Tooth Fairy sometimes forgets to visit. It's bound to happen when you're stashing $271.6-million for lost teeth in one year.

And not every Tooth Fairy leaves behind money. Believe it or not, 47% of kids get a small toy or game, while 35% get a letter from the Tooth Fairy, and 31% get a toothbrush, but these could be in addition to money as well.

Of course a child’s gift does vary depending on location. It seems the Tooth Fairy is most generous in the West, paying an average of $4.85 for a tooth and $6.76 for the first tooth, followed by the Northeast, with an average of $4.35 per tooth, $6.45 for the first tooth.
