do you do with all the teeth?
The Toothfairy Helpers put the teeth in special boxes designed
just for each child's lost teeth. We use the teeth to build
just about everything at Tooth Fairyland. Sometimes the teeth
shine so bright, you can see them as stars at night. You can
even pick out and name your own star.
do you get through windows?
Part of being The Toothfairy
is that I have special
magic. I can use my magic to go right through your window.
But it only works if you are sleeping.
lost a tooth, and I can't find it. Will you still come visit
Of course I will. As long as the tooth is lost, the Toothfairy
will know about it. Often a child will write a special note
for me and leave that note under the pillow. Here at Tooth
Fairyland a note from a child is just as magical as the
do you know I'm asleep?
It's easy! It's all part of the magic of being the Toothfairy.
But I can also make sure children are sound asleep when
they are snoring and dreaming. If I think you aren't sleeping,
I'll wait until you are sleeping.
do you travel from house to house?
I'm a magical fairy and I travel on the mystical energy
of fairy flight. Sometimes you can see the trail I leave
way up in the sky when the night is as dark as it is going
to get. But, most children are fast asleep at this hour
of the night.
do you live?
I live at Tooth Fairyland -- hidden away up in the sky.
do you look like?
I am not tall, and I am not short. I have nice skin, and
nice hair. My eyes are very pretty, and I have an enchanting
smile. Sometimes I wear my wings, and sometimes I do not.
If you close your eyes and imagine what I look like, you
just may be able to see me smiling back at you. When I was
just the youngest fairy, I learned that children’s
laughter made my wings move faster.
is your favorite food?
I have many favorite foods. I really like healthy foods
that are good for your teeth like fruits and vegetables.
Maybe you will leave me some carrots or celery next time
you lose a tooth?
much money do other kids get?
Losing a baby tooth really isn't just about getting money.
It is about the magic you share with your family and friends.
It is about the magic moment when you realize you are getting
just a little bit older. Be sure to always remember this
time and to cherish the people you love and that love you
didn't you come and get my tooth?
I just can't get to every lost tooth in one night. Sometimes
there are so many lost teeth to collect. Just remember to
leave your tooth for me, and I will get to it. Sometimes
I have to work overtime on the weekends to get caught up.
But I'll always come and get your lost teeth.
Well, of course I'm real! I find that question so silly
sometimes. Every night I visit thousands of children and
collect their teeth. They all believe in me, and they all
know how real I am. So many parents see the magic I perform
when they discover with their children that I made a visit
during the night. It is true that some children just don't
want to believe that I am real. This makes me sad, but I
hope that someday when those children have children of their
own, that they teach their children about me.
what age will I lose my first tooth?
The age for boys and girls is sometimes different. I can
tell you that children start to lose their baby teeth as
early as 3 years old, and as late as 7 years old. But around
5 to 6 years old is usually when children will lose their
do I get my loose tooth to fall out?
There are so many different ways to get a loose tooth to
fall out. I have heard of tying a string to the tooth, and
the other end of the string to a door knob. Then, someone
slams the door shut, and the tooth is yanked out. Sounds
scary to me, but it certainly does work, and it works FAST!
Other ways include eating an apple, making sure to use your
loose tooth to bite the apple. Or, you can just gently jiggle
it and wiggle it until finally it just gets so loose it
simply won't stay in your mouth any longer. The important
thing to remember is that you don't have to rush the tooth.
Almost always the adult tooth growing in will push the baby
tooth out of the way. So, use what ever way makes you the
most comfortable. There is no reason that you should cause
any pain during this magical time.
will my tooth fall out?
Part of the magic of losing baby teeth is the surprise when
your tooth falls out. I love surprises. I don't know when
teeth will fall out, but I'm always ready to come and collect
your teeth. I can tell you that children start to lose their
baby teeth as early as 3 years old, and as late as 7 years
old. But around 5 to 6 years old is the average.
I keep my tooth and still get the money?
If you leave me a note to remind me, I will usually leave
your tooth for you to keep, and I will still leave you a
it hurt when you lose a tooth?
It doesn't have to hurt. Usually it hurts if you try to
get your tooth to fall out before it is ready. Sometimes
the dentist has to pull your baby tooth out so the adult
tooth can grow in. Kids are sometimes scared that this will
hurt, but dentists do a great job to make sure that it doesn't
hurt. The strange feeling you feel when your tooth falls
out can sometimes be scary, but it doesn't have to hurt.
Just be patient, and the tooth will fall out.
do you get my tooth without waking me up?
Part of being the Toothfairy
is that I have Toothfairy
Magic. Using my magic, I can move very quiet and very fast.
So quiet and so fast that you don't wake up when I get your
tooth...even if it is under your pillow!
do you get into my room?
Using my Toothfairy
Magic, I can go right into your room, but my magic only
works if there is a lost tooth, and if your are really sleeping.
don't you let anybody see you?
Lots of people get to see me. But my Toothfairy
Magic only works when little boys and girls are sleeping.
Since they must be asleep, they don't see me when I visit!
