Although many countries around the world have unique traditions to mark the loss of a child's baby teeth, the tooth fairy legend is believed to have originated in the United States in the early part of the 1900s. This custom has remained popular, and even today, many parents search for fun and creative ideas about how to use the tooth fairy story to celebrate the loss of a child's baby teeth.
It is difficult for anyone to comprehend what the tooth fairy would do with the teeth from all the children around the world. Some say that tooth fairies are building a giant castle for their queen from the cleanest and most well cared for teeth, while the substandard teeth are ground down for paving stones. This may be why the tooth fairy leaves more money for some teeth than others. Your tooth fairy letter can hint that if your child wants a bonus under her pillow, brushing thoroughly twice a day is a good way to earn it.
No matter what your family's preferred tooth fairy looks like, tooth fairies all leave behind a gift when they collect a tooth, and so all parents are faced with the problem of determining how much money to put under the pillow when the tiny tooth collector pays a visit.
