But, giving the tooth fairy a good name that would always work with the children can be difficult. After all, the name should excite the child and not be too boring!
Kids love to believe that the tooth fairy collects their teeth and crushes them to make fairy dust and distributes it amongst all the fairies so they can spread their magic. Kids might like to write to the tooth fairy when they lose their first tooth in the hope of a response from this magical figure telling them they have been good children and rewarding them.
