That’s the Tooth and Nothing but the Tooth!

How many times did you feel around in the dark under your kids pillow for that tooth? Trying to capture the elusive tooth beneath the pillow and artfully replace it with money without waking your child can sometimes be quite the undertaking. With that being said, you really need to get the Twinkle Twinkle Engraved Tooth Fairy Box. For yourself or a dear friend that is expecting or has a child about to lose some teeth. It has a string attached to it so it is easily found under the pillow.

There have been so many books and children’s stories about the tooth fairy it’s hard to count. The tooth fairy actually started out in the early 1900’s as the “Good Fairy” with a professional specialization. The tale was the same as today, she would take the tooth from under the pillow and exchange it for a gift. It wasn’t always money at that time. Sometimes a small token gift of some sort and more commonly candy. The first children’s story about the tooth fairy surfaced in 1949. From then on it spread like wildfire. Fortunately for all of us the Tooth Fairy is not encumbered by a mythos, therefore she has no religious, racial or holiday affiliation. We can all enjoy her!

Most children begin losing their teeth around 5 or 6 and are generally done losing teeth around 10 or 11. I was reading this study, yes a study about the Tooth Fairy, and most children no longer believe in her around 7 or 8. They just keep the game going, there is money at stake! I know I did. Have you noticed that the Tooth Fairy has kept up with inflation? I used to get a quarter to fifty cents per tooth, kids are getting around two bucks a pop these days! Anyhow, if you are planning on keeping those little gems or want to add to this gift, we have a couple of other gifts that also contain First Tooth Boxes, including My Sweet Love Baby Basket and the Mother Goose Tower.

  1. Thanks for the tooth fairy history. I always thought it was something my grandmother had made up. That gift is neat.
