    What is the going rate for a tooth these days?

    Just curious what the tooth fairy currently pays for a lost tooth today.

    I usually give my kids $3 to $5 depending on the tooth (molars are worth more), since this contributes to their savings $$$ and their personal spending money.

    When I was a girl, a quarter.  My kids got a dollar. Not sure what my grandkids get.

    Saving my tooth costs $80 ! But guess it is worth the money. That's my molar tooth.

    In my opinion my kids' friends are getting WAY too much for their teeth ($5-20)! We're refusing to compete and instead giving the kids foreign coins in exchange for their teeth. Then they have a cool souvenir and we don't break the bank.

    My five year old lost his first (and second) tooth in September. For his very first tooth the tooth fairy left a small toy. For the second tooth she left a dollar. After reading these answers I am thinking I might have to leave a couple dollars more next time because it looks like the going rate has gone up ;-)
