Wretched Sepps. Tooth fairies are ubiquitous in the UK. The current wording smacks of American arrogance. Also, why is this kid losing so many teeth? Three at once is questionable and it makes one think that one should save up teeth to exchange, cchat in truth, a single tooth is exchangeable. There is an answer missing from thisthe answer to a very important question contained in a letter my 8 year old has just written to the tooth fairy: Why do you collect teeth?
I didn't see the earlier removal of the spoiler stub. I reluctantly removed the stub myself. Schmiteye11 November UTC I added the spoiler warning, it needs a god damn spoiler warning, you bastards. Let's be serious here. We're not adding spoiler warnings to every myth.
Melchoir23 January UTC Two important points to consider, first the spoiler warning is necessary to protect everyone, not just. Second, if it were censorship, I'd have deleted the phrase "fictional character. Spoils wwith spoiler warnings. I took out the phrase 'deciduous dentition ' because its stupid.
No one knows what that means, and it should be readable for the layman. Besides, what do you accomplish by putting the warning before the entire text? The innocent reader who believes in the tooth fairy won't understand what's going to be revealed before it's all too late. I agree wholeheartedly on replacing 'deciduous dentition' with 'when it falls out of the child's mouth', though.
Muahahaha Mythology is fine, given the contemporary academic usage of the word, but fictional is seriously POV. I agree. Keep the spoiler warning. Encyclopaedias are meant to give people information they don't know - it's almost as bad as putting a spoiler warning on every other article in case the person reading it might not know about the subject, which in effect kinda defeats the purpose. I think it should be removed. This is an encyclopedia article Basho5 September UTC I think that you should keep the spoiler warning because when I read that the tooth fairy wasn't real, I was devestated.
I don't want that to happen to someone else. There's plenty more here to open kids' eyes than just the revelation of the truth about the tooth fairy. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk. No further edits should be made to this section. The result of the debate was Not moved.
Tooth Fairy is the name of the fictional being and thus it should be capitalized. Similarly to how Easter Bunny is capitalized, Tooth Fairy should be capitalized also in its title. Meriam Webster uses lower case, as does the article linked. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk. Protection request I Have reverted vandalism on this 2 times in the past day and a half and it has been reverted by others as well.
These are not "prominent examples of folklore" Puley is a minor cartoon reference on Nickelodeon. Ohnoitsjamie, is reverting everything I do without even reading it. There is no protection. The next sentence is "The Tooth Fairy calls upon the European folklore" which makes it clear that the character is fictional. There is no censorship request.
The "Tradition" section also starts out "The Tooth Fairy is an example of folklore mythology" which links to mythology. Obviously fiction. I will make the change to traditional.
I will also take out the fictional Great Pumpkin and replace with something else. Steve Dufour26 May UTC parents should this article really mention that your parents are the tooth fairy see information about putting the tooth in a glass of water? The myth wouldn't be sustained without parent's active encouragement. Alpha Ralpha Boulevard talk15 August UTC Copyedits There were a of places where the language was tightened without affecting meaning. The claim that Peanuts was pivotal to the modern image of a tooth fairy, or that it was the first major use in a comic is original research.

And it doesn't "ring true" didn't Little Nemo include a tooth fairy, for example? Also, the comment wasn't appropriate in an article that includes other international versions that were probably untouched by Peanuts.
Since many editors have come up with references, it would be useful if someone used them to quote to round out an important aspect of the whole thing: the tooth fairy's purpose. I can come up with a couple directions: Distract children from a scary situation? Conform to peer pressure? Support 's view of the relationship of trial and wkth

Also, when I went back to the article to consider the Discussion comment above by Noahwoo, I removed a considerable amount of language claiming some book, comic strip, or academic theory is "first", "most commonly accepted", "responsible for the modern image" etc. This language is original research, strongly contrary to Wiki policy, as a quick glance at WP:OR will confirm for those who are interested. Moreover, it's apparent that the tooth fairy myth is practiced in many cultures, and possibly for hundreds of years, so statements about origins and influences need to take an international viewpoint.
Henryrothschild talk24 August UTC I remember hearing some variation on this, occasionally. But a It's not cited, b it's not an central part of the myth, and therefore c doesn't belong in the introduction, and d isn't written in an encyclopedic style.
I removed it. The editor might want to find a source, and re-add encyclopedic material later in the article. Alpha Ralpha Boulevard talk7 November UTC I don't know what this means This combination of ancient international traditions has evolved into one that is distinct Anglo-Saxon and Latin American cultures among others. I thought I understood this sentence until "distinct".
I don't think it parses after that. I would boldly correct this if I had any clue what it meant. Therefore, I will be bold and remove the entire sentence until someone is able to make sense of it. The math doesn't add up, and the cited article does not mention the date of closure. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows. The result of this discussion was to merge.
Alanl talk6 September UTC A duplicate of this Tooth fairy article called Traditions and customs regarding deciduous teeth was misguidedly created by User:Marcosm13 on 12 January with the stated purpose, "Transistioning the Tooth Fairy article to a more suitible, global namespace". This has merely resulted in two articles with near-identical content — apparently a copy-paste job with some minor, divergent edits occuring to both articles in the few months since.
They both address the same topic and should be merged, and proper citations applied as well: the article is in poor shape. Suggestion: new article title Since this article is much more broad than the "Tooth Fairy," I suggest it be renamed to something like "Traditions and customs regarding deciduous teeth" with a redirect from "Tooth Fairy.

This isn't about a tooth fairy, but rather "Traditions and customs regarding deciduous teeth. The article would be better if it were re-written as an article about the tooth fairy with a sub-article about the traditions.
It will need to wait for bulking up however, that's how articles grow, it all goes in here first, until there is enough to separate off. The American Dental Association does NOT produce a monthly periodical entitled "Ortho" and the whole section does not even cite a source. It is not supported by the reference given. The ref is a good ref however, and I've used it in preference over two others, and the wording was better, so I've incorporated that as well. I've left those refs as comments as a courtesy to anyone who wants to check that it was 'newspapers' pluraland to tidy up the paragraph.
Although it's not required, it's just an idea some editors follow. Penyulap talk8 October UTC Even though this book was written primarily for children, as a folklorist I found it most enjoyable and discovered so many fascinating traditions that are not recorded in any folklore archives. Here every single continent is represented and we learn how children of different nationalities dispose of their lost milk tooth.
Of course, it is only to be expected that a few obscure examples have not been included.

For instance, there is no reference to the old Cornish custom by which "children's first teeth are burnt to prevent dog's witb or 'snaggles' - irregular teeth coming in their stead" M. Faidy "Folklore and Legends of Cornwall",rep. Moreover, there is no mention of the Maltese custom of burying the tooth in a flower pot so that the new tooth like the plant in the pot will emerge Pullicino, J.
Press,rep. Yet there are so many fascinating examples, most of which were unknown to me. I was pleasantly surprised to see the Greek custom of throwing the milk tooth onto the roof a custom I was interested to learn is also pracitised in Korea and Taiwan. Dhat, in Greece the throwing of the tooth onto the roof is accompanied by the reciting of a little rhyme which can be loosely translated as follows: 'Take sow my tooth and give me an iron one so that I tioth chew rusks'.
In cat regions of Greece, it is a mouse not a sow which is invoked. Therefore I was interested to see how the mouse also features in several parallel traditions throughout the world. For instance, we learn that Spanish children believe that the mouse Ratoncito Perez will substitute the tooth under the pillow for money or sweets candies as will his French counterpart La Petite Souris. Some peoples wrap their teeth in various materials for different reasons.
Children of other nations bury their teeth e.
