Q: What if ...my child has already lost a tooth and received money from the Tooth Fairy?
Children possess an innate sense of wonder and imagination, and our Hold the Magic gifts are sure to spark their curiosity and excitement. It’s tangible “proof” of the Tooth Fairy, after all! However, if you’ve given money in the past and are just now starting your Hold the Magic tradition, you may consider leaving money along with the gift bag (just to be safe!). You can also start with any one of our gift sets, so feel free to choose the one that would best appeal to your child.
Q: What if ...my child splits time between households?
There’s no telling when (or where) those wiggly teeth will fall out! If your child splits time between households, it may be wise to clue their other guardian in on your Hold the Magic tradition. If a tooth has a “wiggle,” it’s as easy as secretly giving their caretaker the magic bag at drop off (just in case) and asking them to place it under your child’s pillow should the tooth fall out. And you can always direct others to the Hold the Magic website to fully explain the tradition.
Q: What if ...my child has an older sibling whose Tooth Fairy experience was different?
A: This is going to depend how much older the other child is. If they have completed their journey and no longer believe, bring them into the fun of holding the magic for their younger sibling. If the older sibling is still in the journey, transition them both to gifts and if needed, add a dollar or gold coin into the gift bags to ease the change. Most children are much more excited about the gifts than money, but it is important to understand their expectation.

Q: What if ...it’s my child’s first wiggly tooth? What is the best gift set to start with?
A: You can begin your Tooth Fairy tradition with any gift set you wish. The Healthy Smiles set makes a great one to start with because the gifts and letters encourage good dental habits. Let the Tooth Fairy inspire cleaner teeth! Most parents add the "Bigger" – a miniature brass magnifying glass to help make reading the tiny fairy letters easy and fun. Be sure to keep it in a safe place for future fairy letter reading. None of our letters specifically mention the first lost tooth, so you’re safe no matter which set you pick. If you still have trouble deciding, check out our Magic Gift Finder.
