In the first grade during St. Patrick's Day, my teacher put fake green footprints on the ground and told us that a leprechaun came in our classroom overnight. We even set up a leprechaun trap. I was so nervous because I actually believe that we were going to see a live leprechaun!

It's hard to believe that I was seven years old when I believed this and not younger :p.

My mum used to tell me that the drops that bounced up from puddles when it rained were actually little fairies dancing.

I never believed in the tooth fairy - instead I used to believe that your tooth somehow magically changed into a 20p coin overnight! A much more logical explanation of course!

When I was about 7 years old, I still believed in the Tooth Fairy. So when we went to Europe for summer vacation, I actually lost 2 teeth. So I wondered if the Tooth Fairy would find me in Europe and I got so worried, I cried myself to sleep. (Yeah, thats sad.) And then when I woke up, I found money under my pillow and I cried because of joy.

Boy, is that dramatic.

When I was about 6 or 7 I was beginning to become sceptical about the existence of fairies and when my parents had some carpet tiles put into the house (the type with a sticky side to fix them to the floor) I thought I might have a means of proving whether fairies were real or not.

I left one of the carpet tiles sticky-side-up in the garden, with a leaf in the middle, on top of which was a pile of mulberries that I'd picked from our tree. I ran outside first thing in the morning to see if I'd caught any, but of course the carpet tile was devoid of magical creatures - not even insects had been caught.

When I told my Dad that I'd proved fairies don't exist, he wanted to keep me believing in childhood things, so he told me that fairies were clever enough to avoid traps - that kept me guessing for a few years! He also told me not to set any more traps, because I wouldn't want to be trapped, so therefore I shouldn't do the same to other creatures. What a nice Dad!

When I was little we would take a ferry to get to my grandparents' house. So when my parents said the tooth "fairy" was coming, I thought they meant "ferry". So I imagined a big ferry coming into my room at night, and the little captain would get off the ship and take my tooth and leave money.

I was always a little skeptical of the tooth fairy. I've always been pretty logical about things. One of my teeth were really loose but the stupid thing wouldn't come out. I spotted some Milk Duds (lol) and decided to see if those wouldn't take it out. They did and I was watching TV at the time so I just stuck the tooth in the mini Milk Dud box, put it on top of the shelf by the couch, and totally forgot about it. I told my mom the next day when I remembered about the tooth and told my mom. She said the tooth fairy would come that night. Well... she didn't. I still tell my mom to this day about how cheap the tooth fairy is while glaring at her. lol.

When I used to get floaters (those things in your eyes that float around), I thought that they were fairies and since nobody else could see them, I felt really special. Then in health class, 7th grade, that specialness I had felt was crushed.

When I was in Elementary school I totally believed in Leprechauns and joined in the tradition for many years of building leprechaun traps on St.Patricks day. I thought they were little tiny Irish men- no bigger than anyone's thumb- and that they would drink a lot. I would construct little villages and somehow got some empty liquer bottles from the house then- thinking they would seduce them. I'd also put little gems in the villages. Unfortunately, I never caught a leprechaun- and they aren't supposed to be so tiny! ;-)

When I was little, I used to believe that fairies were friendly to kids and gave them presents (like the tooth fairy). Then my sister read me a poem (can't remember the name of it) and I began to believe that fairies were evil little creatures that come out into your bedroom in the night and kidnap you. Then, I believed you would be trapped in the fairies world or demension forever as a prisoner. Eventually, I learned that fairies are just make-believe.

i used to believe in the tooth fairy. i did some math and realized that she had to hold about $2 billion on her every night, since she wouldnt have enough time to go back to her house in between visits. and naturally, her first stop of the night would be my house. i decided to catch and rob the fairy, so i hid a small butterfly net under my pillow and pretended to be asleep the night after i had lost a tooth. i must have dozed off because the next thing i knew, there was a faint tinkling noise. i grabbed my net and turned on the light, only to find my dad there, change in hand, trying to find a quarter. im not sure who was more shocked...

I accidently had my brother terrified of the tooth fairy because I told him that the tooth fairy came in and took your teeth and left money for them. So he believed that some big macho looking guy in a tutu with a wand would knock your teeth out and pay cash for them. He slept face down for a few years because of that.

I used to believe that the tooth fairy was real so I tried to communacate with him/her. I wrote them a note with an answering machine please start your message now... on it. The next morning, when there was no message, I was convinced I had failed at communacating with him/her.

when i was younger i always believed that if u stuck something under your pillow that a magical fairy would take it away when u slept. (like the toothfairy) so i never put anything under my pillow until i was about 10 years old.

I once lost my tooth in a piece of pizza at a Bar Mitzvah in Colorado. When I put the tooth under my pillow, the next morning I only got 50 cents, when I would normally have 1 dollar. I told my parents, and every single member of our family about how cheap the Colorado tooth fairy was. Then, when we got back to Detroit, my mom slipped a not under my pillow that said, "Well, your a cheap little kid. From: The Colorado Tooth Fairy" From then on, I thought that The Colorado Tooth Fairy was out to get me and that I couldn't lose any teeth while we were in that state

When I was 7, mom began playing 'fairy' for me. She'd draw me cards, write letters, leave small gifts... I believed until I was eleven. Now, reading through those old surprises, I have to laugh at how many times "be a nice girl and tell your daddy to buy mommy..." comes up in them.

I once stole my great grandmother's dentures and hid them under my pillow. If one tooth got me a dollar imagine what a whole mouthful would get!

The next morning I gave her back her dentures and cried because the tooth fairy left a note it said "Don't try to trick me again or I'll take the teeth right out of your mouth!" Then everytime I lost a tooth I left a note saying "It's real!"

I didn't know my grandpa had left that note until I had lost all my baby teeth.

I was visiting my grandparents over the weekend when I had lost my tooth in a bean burrito. I went to bed with it under my pillow and axiously waited for the arrival of the tooth fairy. When I awoke in the morning i was devastated to discover that there was no money under my pillow. After crying for about 10 minutes my dad called me into my grandparents room and explained,"The tooth fairy left your money under grandma's pillow!", as he handed me a dollar. For the rest of my young life I thought the tooth fairy was stupid enough to confuse a young angelic child with an old fat wrinkly woman.
