Tooth Fairy - What's the Story?
The Story of the Tooth Fairy
Does anything top the anticipation of a visit from the Tooth Fairy? In Australia the Tooth Fairy is well established but it may surprise you to know she is not the only one with the job of collecting teeth.
The Tooth Fairy we know and love, good, kind, devoted to her profession, appeared in the early 1900s; exchanging gifts or money for lost baby teeth when they were put in a special spot under a pillow, in a glass of water, in a little box or special spot.
While the last baby tooth isn't usually lost until the tweenage years, parents and children are usually both happy to acknowledge the Tooth Fairy's important role until the process is complete. Precious memories of the Tooth Fairy are often rekindled when children have grown all the way up and continue the magic with their own children.
