Who is the tooth fairy?

The tooth fairy comes to visit you after you lose a baby tooth. The tooth fairy is a beautiful fairy, who ventures around the world every night – collecting lost teeth from millions and millions of boys and girls.

Once you have lost your tooth, place it under your pillow or in a special place for the tooth fairy to find. While you sleep the tooth fairy will visit you through the night and exchange your tooth for a small gift or monetary reward.

But what does the Tooth Fairy do with all of the teeth she collects from children around the world? She plants them in the sky and they become the trillions of stars we see each and every night!
