The average child now finds $2.60 under their pillow after losing a baby tooth, that’s down from $3 in 2010!
America’s economy is so bad, even the Tooth Fairy is feeling the pinch — a new survey reveals a sharp decline in how much kids are given ‘per tooth!’ How much do your kids get?
Ten percent of children get no reward at all when they loose a baby tooth — up from six percent in 2010 — according to the figures compiled by Visa.
And the economy is to blame!
Kids are expected to have a full set of 20 adult teeth by the time they turn three — by which time they’ll have cost the Tooth Fairy or their parents (if you’re a non-believer!) an average of around $60! That’s a lot of money!
Does this surprise you HollyMoms? Are YOUR kids visited by the tooth fairy? If so, how much do they get per-tooth?
