Have you ever wondered who leaves behind the shiny coin when you lose a tooth? That special someone is none other than the Tooth Fairy!
The idea of the Tooth Fairy is a lot of fun and brings extra magic to the experience of losing a tooth. Some people believe that she’s a delicate little fairy, others think that he’s a mouse, but everyone agrees that the Tooth Fairy has a special love for baby teeth.
It all started a very long time ago in America. The story of the Tooth Fairy became popular among American families during the early 20th century. This special tradition has been passed down from generation to generation since then.
The biggest job of the Tooth Fairy is to collect teeth that have fallen out and leave a small payment in place of the tooth. You see, when a child loses a baby tooth, he or she would place it under the pillow while sleeping. The Tooth Fairy visits while they sleep, taking the tooth and leaving a coin or small gift in its place.
This magical fairy is believed to take all the baby teeth up to her castle in the sky. These teeth are used to build her city, add to her collection, or even turned into stars!
One of the best things about the Tooth Fairy is that every country has a different version of the story. This can make the Tooth Fairy seem even more exciting, as she comes in so many forms!
So the next time you lose a tooth, remember to place it under your pillow and wait for the magical visit of the Tooth Fairy. But, shh! She only comes when you’re fast asleep.
