The tooth fairy is widely accepted as a parenting standard in the UK. In a recent study it was found that the average payment left by "the fairy" is £2.10, a 60p rise on 5 years ago. Whilst just under 10 % received £10 - £200 for a full set of milk teeth. However, not all countries use the story of the fairy when it comes to disposing of their little ones' teeth.
Spain has the story of Ratocinto Perez, otherwise known as Perez the mouse. The tooth is again, left under the pillow. And the mouse will replace it with some kind of gift, not necessarily money. In Argentina some children leave their teeth in a glass of water. The mouse is said to be so parched from his rounds that he drinks the water and leaves a gift in the empty glass.
