One of the last "magical" figures I beleived in was the Tooth Fairy, but as I got older i eventually started having more logical questions about the mysterious lady i imagined. So i decided since i didnt have very many teeth left to loose i should go ahead and start a correspondence with her to find some answers. So with my tooth, i left a letter asking all sorts of things; where she lived, how she got in the house, how she could afford to leave $20 a tooth with so many children in the world loosing teeth, etc etc. i was so excited to find her reply the next morning that i barley fell asleep. when i awoke i found she had indeed replied. all my questions were answered,and i was so excited. (i mean this was some good stuff for show and tell) After i calmned down i realized there was one problem.... she had the same exact hand writing as my father!! LOL

I always wondered how on earth did the tooth fairy could carry those big 50p coins. All my friends had 50p for every tooth they lost. As fairies are smaller than a thumb.

when my aunt was about six my grandmother was driving her and her friend somewhere. one of them said "i know who the tooth fairy is! it's my dad." (my grandmother can't recall who said it)
they were quiet for a minute and the other said
"well, i'm glad it's someone i know."

When I was about 7 my little sister had lost her first tooth. I was a little jealous because I wanted the dollar instead of her. Since we shared a room I stayed up and watched for my mom (I found out earlier that she was really the toothfairy) to put the dollar under her pillow. After that I snuck over and took the dollar and left a little note I made that said that the toothfairy died. The next morning my sister was heartbroken that there was no money under her pillow. She gave my mom the note and you could imagine the trouble I got into.

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!

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.

.. you know the tooth fairy story righhtt... well.. when I was 5 I was so excited to lose my first tooth so I could receive some money from the tooth fairy like the other kids did .. I eventually did and was so happy I went to sleep early and kept the tooth under the pillow I told my parents they were excited too and they told me I would receive money from the fairy... I woke up in the morning and with excitement I whipped my pillow up .. and realize there was nothing.. at all.. I checked around my bed, to find my tooth on the floor with my toys... looked like the tooth fairy forgot about me...... and so did my parents .... thanks mum & dad that was my first tooth too.

When I was young, my friends and I believed that there were tiny fairies everywhere, and you could travel to their world by spinning and jumping on special stepping stones.

When I was about 12 I was told the facts about Father Christmas...even though I should have realised from that moment on that most things like Santa, Monsters etc wasn't real...I still asked if the tooth Fairy existed...broke my heart ;)

When I was a little girl, my dad would always tell me to leave a little bit of food on my plate at dinner for Miss Manners. I thought that Miss Manners was a tiny lady like the tooth fairy who came by after dinner to eat our leftovers.

I used to believe the tooth fairy was real until I saw my mum creeping around in the bathroom one night. We left our tooth is a glass of water in the bathroom and the 'toothfairy' would leave us a silver coin.

I grew up with snowy winters and I believed for some reason that in winter the "Little People" needed shelter. Consequently, I would make little hollows along the snowbanks for them to get out of the cold. Occasionally I would make more elaborate ones.

It never occurred to me to check to see if they had been used, or where the "Little People" stayed in summer. In fact, I don't recall ever thinking about them at all if there wasn't snow on the ground.

I started to lose baby teeth right before my fifth birthday, and had lost all of them with in a very short period...anyway, my mom told me that the Tooth Fairy took my teeth to give back to God for babies to have when they were born. In a sense, Tooth Fairy was just a big fan of recycling.

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 lost a baby tooth and put it under the pillow I got a dime form the Tooth Fairy. Mom told me the Tooth Fairy took the teeth because she wanted to use them in doll heads.

I used to believe that the toothfairy was real and that she lived in the fairy good wood with all the other fairies, but one night i caught my grandad taking my tooth and putting the money there, I was really upset cuz I thought the tooth fairy had died but my grandad told me she was on holiday and I believed him!! it wasnt until years later when I found a poem he had wrote about me catching him that he was the tooth fairy all long... he must have looked really silly in a tutu... lol

My nephew refuses to put his tooth under his pillow in case the fairy burns him with her wand.
