Tooth Fairy

We will be getting a visit from the Tooth Fairy this evening. Can anyone tell me how much Swiss Tooth Fairies leave? Or do they just fine you SFr1000 for not putting the tooth in a Züri-Sack?

Already found this thread but am still none the wiser.

Cheers,
Nick

Re: Tooth Fairy

we just give all the change we can find (which usually adds up to quite a bit) and it gives my son joy to sit and count the money add up, and learn a bit of math

Re: Tooth Fairy

One nice, clean shiny coin, the larger the size, the better. Also, get a little tin to actually keep those little teeth for later interest once Nickatbaseljunior stops believing in that little winged critter.

Re: Tooth Fairy

I asked hubby, he said he never had tooth fairy visits as a kid.

Off topic: Where do you find these, and how much do they usually cost? My brother got me onto them when we were looking for particular ones for his kids. (I have a Santa )

Re: Tooth Fairy

A Dental Gift Voucher, with no expiry date, is normally sufficient.

Re: Tooth Fairy

I heard that, here in CH, the tooth fairy charges a pretty hefty fee for her services (expect a bill in the mail).

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Re: Tooth Fairy

5 CHF for first tooth, 2 for subsequent ones, is what we have done, I think Maybe even 5 CHF for the big suckers up front, as I spoil my children...And if you forget, it doubles (made that one up, but the last time I think it took 3 nights before the lady showed up, lazy %)(§)

Our tooth fairy must be a bit on the stingy side as she only leaves 2chf here.

Re: Tooth Fairy

This is why England is going broke. Too many people with bad teeth is forcing the tooth fairy to get a loan in Euros from the Central European Bank. Factor in interest rates, long working hours and trade union meetings and you'll understand why Switzerland banned any giving of monetary gifts to people losing thief molars before the age of 21.

Re: Tooth Fairy

What do you mean? You gotta pay disposal costs. Tooth Fairies don't work for free, you know.
