Tooth Fairy Leaves U.S. Kids More Money This Year
Economic conditions are improving for one sector of Americans – children who receive money from the Tooth Fairy. A survey released by Visa, Inc. shows that the Tooth Fairy is leaving an average of $3.00 per tooth this year, an increase of $0.40 (15%) over the $2.60 left for each pearly white in 2011. To help parents answer the perennial question of how much their children should receive from the Tooth Fairy, Visa has created a new mobile app and online calculator. The amount calculated for each tooth is a reflection of what other people are already giving their children.
The survey results are based on 2,000 telephone interviews conducted nationally from July 13 – July 17, 2012 in cooperation with GfK Roper's Omnibus Service "OmniTel". The margin of error is +/-4 percentage points.
