    My 12 year old sister has had coach purses and nice cell phones for yeeeeeears. And my parents aren’t even wealthy. Being a kid aint what it used to be, I tell ya….

    I got $10 a tooth when I was a kid. The tooth fairy also made a stop at both grandparents houses for each tooth lost so I’d walk away with about $25 per tooth. It helps being an only child.

    Uh yeah, quarters were left, and I am not at all old. But kids these days scare me. A lot. No kid of mine is getting a $20 for doing exactly what their biology was made to do.

    I think I remember getting a dollar, maybe two. No more than that though.

    We gave our daughter $2 per lost tooth. I got quarters as a kid, ha. $20 is INSANE.

    I usually got $1-2 per tooth.  Once I got $20, and when I was really excited in the morning, my dad said it was a mistake and took it and gave me $5. lol.

    Oldtimer here…

    The Canadian Loonie (our $ 1 coin) came out in 1987, a very pretty “gold” coin that the Tooth Fairy liked to leave… so even back then I was paying a lot more than 25 cents for a lost tooth for my kids.

    Could totally see where 25 years on… the price has gone up but again (Canadian Twoonies… our $ 2 coin or a $ 5 Bill in my mind, would not be unheard of)

    $ 20 does sound a tad extreme… but then as other Bees have said, maybe they mean when all is said & done… after Gramma & Grampas, and GodParents and Nannies chip in too (those who see the child regularly and would mark all the major milestones with the child)

    Hope this helps,
