How much should the Tooth Fairy pay per tooth?
According to an annual survey by Visa, in 2013, kids are getting an average of $3.70 per lost tooth from the Tooth Fairy. That’s up 23% from last year, when kids were averaging $3.
Why is the price skyrocketing? Apparently, it’s because parents don’t want other parents to think they’re cheap. Parents know kids will talk to each other about what they got from the Tooth Fairy, and all the kids will tell their parents.
Visa also put together a calculator where you can figure out the approximate going rate for a tooth, based on where you live and what you make.
