RECOMMENDED: February events calendar for kids in NYC
What's a baby tooth worth in NYC? Apparently, a whole lot more than anywhere else! A survey released last week reveals that New York parents (AHEM, "The Tooth Fairy") offer the most money for their kids' pearly whites— to the tune of $13.25 (on average) per tooth. That's a $265 payout by the time they've lost their last baby tooth!
In Sunstar Gum's 1,000-person study, Los Angeles is next in line, offering $9.69 per tooth on average. Other numbers include $5.95 in Chicago, $5.28 in Dallas and then $5.02 in Boston. For a normal family, these numbers seem pretty inflated—what do you leave under your kid's pillow? Personally, we'd rather be spending that money on a ticket to one of the best NYC museums.
