Stephen: Inflation causing tooth fairy to dole out more money per tooth
Written by Stephen Lethbridge on March 2, 2023
Even magical beings have been impacted by inflation. According to an annual poll, the tooth fairy is giving 16% more per tooth this year compared to 2022.
In 2022, a tooth was worth about $5.36, but now kids can expect about $6.23 for their baby teeth.
The survey polled 1,000 parents with children between 6 and 12 years of age. If this inflation rate holds, a single tooth will be worth $30 in 2048.
