The Tooth Fairy goes cashless with kids money app Spriggy

Mouth with tooth missing

The Tooth Fairy rivals dentists, according to estimates by ToothShow, she collects more than two thousand teeth from Australian children each night. And while the fairy of the night has traditionally paid children cash for their teeth while they are sleeping, along with most of the country, recently she has been stepping up her game turning to digital payments. 

Infact, the Tooth Fairy recently announced a partnership with Spriggy, an Australian pocket money app and prepaid card, to enable digital payments in exchange for lost teeth. According to Spriggy data, the average digital tooth fairy payment is $5.

 

How do we help the Tooth Fairy?

To help the Tooth Fairy make her payments, kids can leave their Spriggy card out alongside their fallen tooth - they will wake up to her payment and their tooth will be gone! 

Mum of two, Hayley Waterhouse says, “It is so convenient for the Tooth Fairy to transfer money using Spriggy. She no longer needs to find the right change, and my kids no longer lose their money before spending it … It’s a win/win in our household.”
