Try These Tooth Fairy Tricks

The Tooth Fairy has come a long way since she first slipped a shiny dime under a pillow. While kids are definitely still thrilled to trade a tooth for treasure, Miss T.F. has been spicing up the exchange with custom pillows, Tooth Fairy doors, and even receipts for goods received. Check out her recent upgrades:

Custom pillows. Gone are the days of jamming a tiny tooth underneath a huge pillow and making the Tooth Fairy grope under a heavy sleeping head. Special pillows with tooth-sized pockets attached are now available online, with themes ranging from princesses to ninjas. Some of the pillows can even be customized with your gap-toothed child’s name. Do an online search for “Tooth Fairy pillows” or check out the Tooth Fairy’s Pinterest page.

Tooth Fairy doors. The Tooth Fairy could fly in through an open bedroom window, but giving her a door of her own makes her job easier. Miniature doors are available online, but it’s fairly easy to make your own from a dollhouse-sized door, doorknob, and some double-sided foam tape. You can even have your child paint it. Find a how-to here.

Tooth Fairy receipts. Some kids want more proof that the Tooth Fairy really came. This kit contains a Certificate of Record for filing lost teeth with the Tooth Fairy and includes an envelope and bag for safekeeping of lost teeth. You can also print off one of these letters, receipts, and certificates from the Tooth Fairy, or make your own.

Tooth Fairy money. With a spritz of hairspray or spray glue and a sprinkling of glitter, the Tooth Fairy can leave money that’s a bit more magical. It takes just seconds.
