I know the tooth fairy sometimes pays extra for a first tooth and have heard stories of some children receiving £20 (I kid you not!). Heidi wasn't so lucky though but in the morning was still delighted to find a shiny £1 coin under her pillow.
I was interested to read this research from Sunlife which states that a typical tooth is worth £1 to the tooth fairy! Phew! Although based on where we live, the tooth fairy may have been feeling the pinch last week as the North East's usual going rate is £1.70 (don't tell Heidi this).
The research also discovered that surprisingly London kids get the least from the tooth fairy - I would have expected more from our capital! Where as children in Northern Ireland and Scotland seem to receive the most.
I try not to get caught up in what other parents do and just concentrate on us but I have to admit, I would love to hear how much the tooth fairy pays where you live?
