Where did the Tooth Fairy come from? It appears that the idea of receiving some sort of reward for a baby tooth dates back to the Middle Ages in Europe. But, the actual Tooth Fairy character didn't come about until a play created in America in 1927. (source: Popular Mechanics)
Does the Tooth Fairy visit every child all over the world? In various forms, many countries have their own "Tooth Fairy". Some only visit when certain # teeth are lost or give some other sort of gift in exchange for the tooth. (source: Wikipedia)
When do children start losing their baby teeth? Average age is 6. (source: American Dental Association)
What is the going rate for teeth these days? In 2013, the average going rate for a tooth was $3.70. I know that personally I have heard anywhere from $1 all the way up to $20 as a reward from the Tooth Fairy. (source: Wikipedia)
I also came across this fun website, where your little ones can request letters and receive them from the Tooth FairyAs a kid I had a special pillow that held my tooth so that the fairy could easily find it and I'm thinking of definitely getting one for each of our kids. I did a quick search and found a really fun kit that I can order on Amazon!
I also think I'll order the book below to help in prepping them for when they start losing their baby teeth.
