This printable letter from the Tooth Fairy takes on a lighthearted joking tone and is great for older children.
Text of the letter:
Dear Young Sir or Madam,
Kindest regards for leaving one (1) tooth under your pillow. I attempted to retrieve it last night but am unable to remit payment for its full value due to the situation(s) outlined below:
___Tooth was not present at the time of the Tooth Fairy's visit. Tooth Fairy will attempt re-delivery.
___Tooth contained excessive decay or damage.
___Tooth has not yet fully emerged from the mouth. Preemptive Tooth Fairy submissions are not accepted at this time.
___Extensive owner-inflicted extraction damage was found on the tooth, including but not limited to: plier marks, string residue, glue, magnetic devices, explosives.
___Tooth found was not human. Tooth Fairy, LLC, and its derivative companies do not accept teeth of dogs, cats, squirrels, rabbits, small rodents or any other non-biped species.
___Item left was examined in Tooth Fairy Labs and found to be artificial: a forged, or fake, tooth. No compensation shall be given in the event of attempts to defraud the Tooth Fairy.
___The tooth procured, when checked with official Tooth Fairy records, was found to be a tooth for which payment was already remitted. No double payments will be issued.
___Evidence was uncovered indicating that you no longer believe in the Tooth Fairy, or professed to younger believers that there is "no Tooth Fairy." Such utterances make the child-Tooth Fairy contract null and void.
Please feel free to appeal this decision, and/or to resubmit the tooth following approved guidelines.
The Tooth Fairy
