Tooth fairy paying a lot more this year
September 1 , 2013
A new survey revealed that kids are now getting gifts worth much more than they were two years ago for their lost tooth .
The jump is 23 percent over last year's rate, which was $3 a tooth. It is now $3.70 for kids that live in the West and South.
Midwestern kids received the least amount of money from the Tooth Fairy and those in the Northeast receive $4.10 per lost tooth.
A shocked mother in the report said "a dollar seems reasonable to me."
The Tooth Fairy would be paying $74 at this rate for a full set of baby teeth today.
Jason Alderman of global financial education said "I think the Tooth Fairy is suffering from irrational exuberance. She wants to be the best one on the block."
