What do you do with all the
The Tooth Fairy 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. Look Here: Name
How do you get through windows?
Part of being The Tooth Fairy 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.
I lost a tooth, and I can't
find it. Will you still come visit me?
Of course I will. As long as the tooth is lost, the Tooth Fairy will know about
it. Usually I will dispatch Tooth Fairy Helper Argyle to find the lost tooth.
He is the best lost tooth finder in all of Tooth Fairyland. 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 lost tooth.
How do you know I lost a tooth?
When a child loses a tooth, we used to have an alarm sound at Tooth Fairyland
letting us know that your tooth has fallen out. But since so many children
lose teeth, the alarm never stopped ringing. So, now Tooth Fairy Helper Lanie
monitors a silent map of all the children who lose a tooth. Tooth Fairy Helpers
Lanie and Emma make my list and map every night.
How do you know I'm asleep?
It's easy! It's all part of the magic of being the Tooth Fairy. 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.
How do you travel from 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
Where do you get all your
money to trade for the teeth?
There are several secret and loving adults that have a lot of money. They give
money to me so I can trade it for your lost teeth. Maybe one day when you get
older you will be able to donate money to me so I can trade it for other children's
When did you start collecting
I have been collecting teeth since my Fairy Princess Mother helped me decide
how to use my special Fairy skills. To learn about this, read the Legend
of the Tooth Fairy. That was a long time ago. I don't remember the
exact year, but it was very long ago.
Where do you live?
I live at Tooth Fairyland -- hidden away up in the sky.
What 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.
Tooth Fairy Helper Larry drew a picture of me which you can see at the top
of this page.
Tell me about your family?
I have a large family of magical Tooth Fairy Helpers that live with me at Tooth
Fairyland. We all share a lot of love for each other and I care about you
just as much. Also
read about my Fairy Sisters who also have special jobs in the Legend of the
Can I be a Tooth Fairy?
Maybe one day, you can be a Tooth Fairy Helper. But, those are jobs for grown
ups. For now, I need you to be a child. You should enjoy growing up, making
friends, learning at school, and ALWAYS be sure to take care of your teeth.
Do you know Santa Claus or
The Easter Bunny?
We are all very busy with our special magical jobs, but we've met before. Sometimes
we get together and have lunch, but most of the time we're just too busy making
children happy to spend a lot of time with each other. It would be nice if
we could spend more time together, but the children's happiness is most important
to all of us.
What 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?
How much money do other kids
Other kids get just about the same amount as you do. 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 the most.
Why didn't you come and get
Even though I can fly as fast as Fairy Speed Eleven, I just can't get to every
lost tooth in one night. Sometimes there are so many lost teeth to collect.
Sometimes the weather (especially blizzards and hurricanes) causes me to have
to slow down, and I get behind. 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.
What is your name?
My name is "The Tooth Fairy," but my friends call me "TF" for
short. Over the years many children and adults have given me other names such
as Flossy, Maria, Vicki, Carley, Katie, Marcus, Robert, Julia, Hammond, Keith,
Kathy, Melissa, Mabel, Winky, Samantha, and so many more. I don't mind at all
if you want to give me a name. But I'll always be The Tooth Fairy. If you want,
you can just call me "TF." If you have a special name for me, please
send me an email to let me know.
Can I have a picture of you?
So far, nobody has been able to take a picture of me with a camera. So, Tooth
Fairy Helper Larry, who is the best artist in all of Tooth Fairyland, drew
a wonderful picture of what I look like. You can see the picture of me at
the top of every one of my web pages. Next time you want to see what I look
like, just visit ToothFairyLand.com
What is the going rate for
a lost tooth?
Because the amount of money I have to give for teeth changes all the time,
I can sometimes leave more money, and other times, I have to leave less. On
the average, I leave one dollar. But sometimes I can leave as much as Twenty
dollars. One time I had such a generous donation to Tooth Fairyland that I
was able to give out ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS for a very special clean and white
sparkling tooth, but I don't know if I'll ever be able to do that again.
Are you real?
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. The magic and ritual
of The Tooth Fairy (That's me!) is such a wonderful thing to celebrate and
How do you know my name and
where I live?
Tooth Fairyland is full of Tooth Fairy Helpers. One such helper is Tooth Fairy
Helper Emma. She is the keeper of the names, address, and map books. Emma and
the other Tooth Fairy Helpers who work with her spend their days and nights
making sure they know all the children's names and where they live. Every night,
before I go to collect teeth, Tooth Fairy Helper Emma gives me the list of
names and addresses to visit.
At what age will I lose my
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 first
Do you only leave money or
do you leave other things?
Mostly, I only leave money. I really think that children can learn so much
from saving their money to buy exactly what they want. Sometimes I do have
special toys and other gifts to leave. I've been known to leave stuffed animals,
action figures, toy dolls, and one time, with the request and permission of
a mommy, I left a little baby puppy - not under the pillow, but in a little
puppy bed. Can you imagine how hard it was to fly all around carrying that
How many teeth have you collected?
Since I collect new teeth every night, the number of teeth in our magical collection
at Tooth Fairyland is always growing. I have collected at lease 566,884,585,218,216,155,785,335
teeth. That's A LOT OF TEETH!! I hope that your baby teeth are next.
How 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.
Do animals lose their teeth?
If so, do you collect those teeth?
Many animals do lose their baby teeth. However, there is a completely different
Animal Tooth Fairy who collects those teeth. And, believe it or not, he leaves
special little treats for the animals to eat when they wake up. The Animal
Tooth Fairy is so busy that I hardly ever get to see him. But sometimes we
meet up for a healthy snack.
When 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.
How many teeth do you collect
in a night?
Every night is different. All over the world, there are over three hundred
thousand (that's 300,000) children who lose a tooth every day. I'm a very busy
Is there more than one Tooth
Nope. I am the only Tooth Fairy for people. Remember that there is an Animal
Do you have any pets?
I don't have any pets, but I love all animals. Some of the Tooth Fairy Helpers
Can 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 surprise. We do need as many teeth in
Tooth Fairyland as we can get, so I hope this doesn't become a popular request.
Without the lost teeth, Tooth Fairyland would fall apart and fade away.
What does your home look like?
You can see a drawing of my home on the top of my web page. It looks like a
big giant tooth castle. I love my home. It is so neat and clean.
How old are you?
I know I look like a child, but I am very very, very, very old. I'm so old,
that I stopped counting. I don't really remember when my birthday is. But
every year on January 1st, the Tooth Fairy Helpers and I celebrate my birthday.
I'm so old that I can remember when people didn't even live in houses.
Does it hurt when you lose
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.
Can I come and visit you in
You can visit ToothFairyLand any time you like. All you have to do is fly
up in the sky, around the ninth cloud to the east, and over the lavender fairy
bridge. Just down the big sky road, you will find the entrance to Tooth Fairyland.
Don't forget that you can always visit me here at ToothFairyLand.com
How do you get my tooth without
waking me up?
Part of being The Tooth Fairy is that I have Tooth Fairy 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!
How do you get into my room?
Using my Tooth Fairy 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.
How fast can you fly?
I am one of the fastest fairies. I can fly as fast as Fairy Speed Eleven. But
most of the time I only need to fly at Fairy Speed Seven in order to collect
all the teeth each night.
What is your favorite color?
My favorite color is blue! You can see that color all over my web site.
Why don't you let anybody
Lots of people get to see me. But my Tooth Fairy Magic only works when little
boys and girls are sleeping. Since they must be asleep, they don't see me when
I visit! When you are older, you can visit Tooth Fairyland, and see me.
Where did you get your magic?
I was just born with it! My magic wand is also very important to me. Without
it, I can't really control my magic at all.
How did you become The Tooth
Do you have children?
When I was a little fairy, my mother was a Fairy Princess Mother. She
taught me how to use my Fairy magic to become The Tooth Fairy. You can
read all about this in the Legend of the Tooth Fairy.
Each little child that loses a tooth becomes part of the magic of Tooth Fairyland
so I am surrounded by the love of children every day.
