A Tooth Fairy letter: Wot so Funee?

Wot So Funee?My brother has a wobbly tooth. I am livid. Do you know how long it’s been since I had a visit from the tooth fairy? I exchanged a fair few letters with her a couple of years back, but that fair-weather friend has done a flit of late. I knew I should have made more effort with the mermaid.

Anyhow, riffling through my correspondence the other day I stumbled across this. She never replied, the ungrateful pixie, and she never came back for that dress/skert I promised her. Just as well really as it’s currently draped, tramp-like, over a felt-tipped Barbie who’s seen better days. All I can say is that if she’s planning a nocturnal visit to the Bug she’d better not tickle him under the armpits – he keeps a light-saber under his duvet…

In the meantime, let me tell you that our parents have wised up. They’re not daft, you know – they know that we know, and they know that we’re manipulating them with our negotiation through the medium of the Tooth Fairy letter. Huffington Post quoted a dental poll recently, suggesting that us kids are getting better at using the Tooth Fairy, Santa, and the Easter Bunny to our advantage. Remind me to tell you about how I conned the Bunny into bringing me roller-skates.

Swallowed teeth are no longer a problem, extra cash is definitely a possibility, and emotional blackmail awaits the fairy who forgets. We are all expert stockbrokers.

Finally, I’ve spotted a gappy smile in the market. A website called the The Real Tooth Fairy has today reported that its traffic has topped 7 million visits a year.  The site hooks you up with your personal Tooth Fairy, with whom you can play games, swap letters, and design outfits. But by my reckoning it’s for girls aged around 3. Take, a look – you’ll see what I mean. Now call me naive, but I’ve never seen 3 year old lose a tooth. And by the way, boys lose teeth too! Now if such an asinine, stereotyped website can attract that many visitors, I reckon a seriously cool Tooth Fairy letter website aimed at girls and boys old enough to have a chance of actually losing a tooth would go through the roof! Remember, you heard it here first 😉

Oh, and Mother, if you’re reading, I’m still waiting on a reply from that French mermaid – just in case you’d forgotten….

  1. Hey tooth fairy, let’s just get this straight: it’s a SKIRT, not a dress, right?!! Love it – poor old fairy was probably a bit scared to turn up in her frilly frock!

  2. it’s a whole minefield all the toothfairy stuff isn’t it! I think we get off lightly in our household – my children’s cousins get a fiver for each tooth – yet we’ve managed to keep ours fairly content on 50p (when we remember that is!).

  3. It’s not a dress, it’s a skirt! Hahaha…. 😀

    I really think you should start that website. We’re gonna start losing teeth here in a year or so, that gives you time to get it perfect 😉

  4. hahaha – so funny! (or funee) – isn’t the going rate for a tooth about a tenner these days… lol 😉 No wonder they’re happy to shed eyelashes… I might try that too… #needginmoney

  5. I could have included Matilda’s letter this week, she asked for fairy dust on Sunday. It missed the spot because I was not amused, ready for bed after a couple of glasses of wine that the tooth fairy had dropped ‘ fairy dust’ all over the kitchen floor and Daddy looked very sparkly – suspicious!!

  6. When it comes to the tooth fairy kids can be very imaginative in their persuasion tactics can’t they? I remember Tom writing to tell the tooth fairy that he’d run out of teeth but ‘do you take other white things like shells and piano keys?’

    *makes mental note to tickle Bug under the arms in a couple of weeks time*
