How much do kids in Derbyshire get from the Tooth Fairy?
According to a new survey, children in Derbyshire collect an average of £1.24 from the 'Tooth Fairy' every time they lose a tooth, a number which presents a 10% decrease in the last four years.
Cosmetic dental brand 'Your Smile Direct' conducted the survey which saw 2000 parents take part.
The survey found that 2% of lucky children in the area receive £20 for each tooth lost, a number which would rise to a total of £400 for a full set of teeth.
Since 2015, average payments have dropped nationally by 10%, with payments dropping from £2.10 to £1.90.
More than a quarter (28%) of children get a £1 coin for each lost tooth, 24% get a £2 coin, and 14% get less than £1 - most typically 50p.
Only 8% of kids never receive a visit from the Tooth Fairy.
Dr Mark-Anthony Shepherd, lead dentist for Your Smile Direct, said: “Even the Tooth Fairy is feeling the pinch!
“But it is great news that the Tooth Fairy is still visiting 92% of homes with children".
Ironically, the survey discovered that the majority of children (34%) spend money received from the Tooth Fairy on sweets.
Other stuff children spend there Tooth Fairy money on include; Toys (33%), They save it (21%), Books (7%), and Clothes (5%).
