I'm 24 now. When I was a kid, I always got 1-5 dollars per tooth. I think it started off as a dollar and progressed to 5. One time though, I got a note that was a voucher for a 2nd pair of "Air Jordans" which I was soo excited about (it was the time my tooth fell out in a friends pool and I never found it). Needless to say, by the time my next tooth fell out, I was informed of who the tooth fairy was. It was fun while it lasted and ended with a bang though!
