All About the Tooth Fairy

Who is the Tooth Fairy?
The Tooth Fairy is said to be a 3 to 4-inch-tall fairy who wears a white dress and white slippers with wings that sparkle with glitter when she moves. However, the Tooth Fairy is very stealthy, and no one has claimed to catch her in the act of retrieving teeth from under their pillow. It is said that she lives in a castle and keeps tracks of children’s teeth in a log book and checks it before doing her nightly rounds. Once collected, the children’s baby teeth are stored in a tooth library where the names of all the children around the world are posted. Children lose 20 baby teeth over the course of a few short years; that’s a lot of teeth! So, the Tooth Fairy gives some of the teeth to her friends to make jewelry out of them. There are a variety of stories and tales about the Tooth Fairy that are told internationally about who she is, where she lives, how baby teeth became valued, what she pays for baby teeth, her hygiene expectations, a museum, and even a national holiday!
