Even the Tooth Fairy is Affected by the Bad Economy

Cnn.com’s “In this dire economy, even the Tooth Fairy is pinching pennies” highlights a 13% decline for the national rate the tooth fairy pays for a tooth. A recent survey found that the national going rate has seen a 40-cent decline this year: From $3 to $2.60 with 10% of kids not getting a visit from the Tooth Fairy at all. The survey also found that the economic pinch has taken a bite out of the Tooth Fairy’s generosity most dramatically in the eastern United States. Kids there received just $2.10 — a 38% decline from $3.40 last year. In the West, kids pocket more than the national average: $2.80 and up 4% from last year’s $2.70.
