Bringing the magic of the Tooth Fairy alive in your home can be exciting for both you and your child. Your child will be filled with wonder about the Tooth Fairy as she collects his or her baby teeth and leaves rewards in their place. You will be thrilled to create this joy and excitement in the life of your child. If you’d like to have the Tooth Fairy be about more than just money, you can write letters from the Tooth Fairy to encourage your child to brush their teeth and to answer any questions about the Tooth Fairy that they may have.

Why Does the Tooth Fairy Collect Teeth?
If your child wonders what the Tooth Fairy does with the teeth from all of the children in the world, can you blame them? Some think that tooth fairies are gathering teeth to build a giant castle for their queen. The nicest, cleanest teeth are used to build the castle and other teeth are ground down and made into paving stones. The tooth fairy could hint that she pays more for decay-free teeth.

How Many Tooth Fairies Are There?
There are different opinions on this and different mythologies, so this is up to you. If you decide that there is only one, signing letters, “The Tooth Fairy,” shows this. If you would like to go with the mythology that there are many tooth fairies, you can give your child’s fairy a name and a personality. This can make the experience even more fun! If you go with the multiple tooth fairies mythology, this could explain why your child’s tooth fairy leaves letters, while other tooth fairies only leave money.
