Wishing for the Tooth Fairy

Do you remember the first time you lost a tooth? I started losing teeth when I was probably about 7 or 8 and didn't stop until I was about 12! I started very late but just because I was older didn't mean I didn't love a visit from the tooth fairy!

I still remember when I would lose a tooth, my mom would take it and wrap it up in special paper to put under my bed. She made the whole experience seem so magical! And every morning, I had something special waiting for me. When I was little, it would be a shiny new quarter and with it, I would go buy a toy from the coin machines in the supermarket.

Looking back at that, it was a very fun and special time for me. So I'm really looking forward to when Mary starts to lose her teeth so I can do the same.

Even though Mary hasn't lost her teeth yet, she still is excited about the tooth fairy. And to help her get excited, she decided to enter the Be a Tooth Fairy Hero Sweepstakes with her coloring picture of the tooth fairy below. The sweepstakes, sponsored by Tom's of Maine,will make a $10,000 donation on behalf of ten randomly selected winners to a dental clinic in their state, plus provide toothpaste for the winning child’s school! And since dental health is such a need everywhere, I think this is a worthy cause!

Would you like to win a tooth fairy kit for your child? One winner will receive the below pack (color of pillow is random) which includes the following: 
One full-size tube of Silly Strawberry Children’s Fluoride Toothpaste 
  • One bottle of Juicy Mint Children’s Anticavity Fluoride Rinse
