The Tooth Fairy Pay Out is Down 11% from 2016

posted by Aaron Zytle - 

An annual survey called the Original Tooth Fairy Poll just came out.  And even though the stock market soared last year, the average tooth payout DROPPED by about 11%. 

The average amount of money kids got for each tooth was $4.13.  That's down from an all-time high of $4.66 in 2016. 

Once again, kids in the western half of the country did best, raking in $4.85 a tooth, followed by the Northeast, $4.35 . . . the South, $4.12 . . . and the Midwest, just $3.44. 

But the average price for a FIRST tooth stayed pretty steady at $5.70.  That's down just 2 cents in the last year. 

84% of parents say the Tooth Fairy visits their home, but 55% admit she's MISSED at least one payment before. 

She paid out a total of $271 MILLION for lost teeth last year.  Aside from money, the most common things she leaves are a toy, a letter, and a toothbrush.
