I know this was at the top of your mind this year, so had to share the second I caught wind 😉
“Tooth Fairy Payouts Plunges for Second Consecutive Year!“
According to the Original Tooth Fairy Poll® by Delta Dental, average monetary payouts are down $0.43 from last year, bringing the current rate to $3.70 for a single lost tooth.
$3.70 a tooth – can you believe it???
But don’t worry, because not all hope’s lost… The Grand Daddy of all prized teeth (the *first* one lost) is still holding strong at a solid $4.96. Whew.
If you were wondering how it fares across the nation, they have stats on that too:
- The West: $4.19/avg — the highest average monetary gift for a lost tooth
- The South: $3.
