  • From about the age of 5 I suppose, you want to start saving from the day they are born now. The tooth fairy leaves quite a few dollars these days



  • They usually start falling out in the 5-7 age range. I gave a gold coin for lost teeth. Kids loved them



  • 5-7 years most kids start to lose them



  • Usually around the 5, 6, 7 year old mark. And tooth fairy rate varies greatly. I only ever got silver coins as a child. My kids get gold coins. And the teeth are graded, some are worth more than others. Big ones are dearer and the first one is worth the most



  • Been wondering about this myself, and then yesterday my little girl (she will be turning 6 in November) told me that she got 2 wobbly teeth! She is all very shy about it :-). I know she think the tooth fairy will leave a gold coin. I will have to tell her Daddy, as daddy is the tooth fairy in our house!



  • my daughter has just turned 7 and has only lost 1 but her second is on the wobble!
    I start at 50c and then will do $1 for the big molars.



  • When they are ready; it does vary. A little pile of coins is nice; 20 cent pieces upwards.



  • A friend’s daughter started to lose hers about the time she started school or a bit later.
    Unfortunately some of her permanent teeth are coming through in the front of the baby ones – before the baby ones come out. She has had to have some extracted by the Dentist. At some point in the future she will have to have orthodontic treatment



  • Well I think it is normally 5-7 the first falls out, my girl lost her first when she just turned four, I was terrified but doctor said it was fine and some lose them earlier. For her first two I gave her $5 note each but then I realised I messed up as she lost her 3rd tooth just before bedtime and I only had like 30cents on me. I felt terrible but she didn’t think much of it luckily. I’d suggest just keeping it at $1 or so, what you know you will at least have on you if an unexpected tooth is lost



  • Between 5-7 years. A gold coin is plenty from the tooth fairy!



  • We gave our child $50 when he lost his first tooth but a gold coin is the going rate for us at the moment



  • I think it just depends on the child i have 4 kids and each lost their first tooth at different ages.
    1st was at 6 years, 2nd was at 7 years, 3rd was at 6 years and my 4th child is 4 and hes not lost any.
    The going rate i think is $5 for the first tooth then $2 there after.



  • My son is almost 6 and he has just lost his first milk tooth! Between the ages of 5-7 they will lose their first tooth



  • All kids vary in baby tooth lose, basically if their baby teeth come in earlier than the 6 month mark they will loose them earlier.



  • My son started getting baby teeth when he was 5 minths old. 2 months before his 7th birthday he lost his first tooth and 2 months after his birthday still waiting for the 2nd tooth to come out. No loose top teeth yet. The tooth fairy gave him $2.
