Is the Tooth Fairy on a budget? Report suggests kids are getting less for their lost teeth

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Children may have noticed – the tooth fairy is a little less generous these days. She’s left 8 percent less this year!

On average, kids got $3.40 for each tooth they lost, compared to $3.70 in 2013. Visa began tracking the Tooth Fairy’s going rate in 2009, so parents have a better idea of what she’s handing out. Read more about this budget-bound Tooth Fairy here .
