The Tooth Fairy is tightening the purse strings. August 22nd marks “National Tooth Fairy Day.” A survey by Vis shows the Tooth Fairy’s 2014 rate for a child’s lost tooth is down 8% to $3.40 a tooth. In 2013 she left $3.70. For a full set of 20 baby teeth, that would equate to a $68, down from $74 last year.
Despite the reduction in payout, the numbers are still up 31 percent from the $2.60 the Tooth Fairy left under pillows in 2011.
