The Enchanted Tooth Box® can be purchased with an accompanying storybook to help explain its purpose in a fun and exciting way. The storybook follows a little girl excited about losing her first baby tooth. However, when she wakes up moneyless, she's left disappointed despite placing her tooth underneath her pillow. What she ends up discovering is a mysterious enchanted box with a note attached. Could these be clues to what really happened to The Tooth Fairy? And will she ever get her celebratory prize? You and your child have to read to find out.
While the battery was built to last for a long time, it does come with a USBC cord to recharge the battery when needed. It's hard to predict how much time will pass between each tooth loss, but charging it for 10-20 minutes after each use is probably a good idea. You will know if it is not working if the LED does not come on when you open the lid. The Box is not meant to stay plugged while in use; however, it is okay to do so at night if your battery is not charged and ready for use.
The best place to keep the Box when it is not in use is on a flat surface out of the reach of your curious children. After all, it's not a toy to play with. Place it high on a shelf near the book. You can tell your child that we must not play with it because we don't want the fairy dust to run out, and the fairy dust helps it glow at night.
It's best to purchase the storybook with the Box to make this tradition easy to explain to your child. The book explains it all. You can let your child know that this Box will help The Tooth Fairy finish her mission quickly because it will glow and lead her directly to your tooth. You could further explain that The Tooth Fairy will not struggle to find your tooth under your pillow this way. Something like that!
It's best to buy this product when your child turns 5 years old or the first sign of a loose tooth. Some children lose their first tooth between the ages of 4 and 7. Your child or their dentist will let you know when they have a wiggly tooth. Read them the book the night of The Tooth Fairy's visit or at the sign of their first loose tooth. That part is up to you!
You can use one Box for all of your children, or they can each have their own. If your kids are anything like the author's children, they will want their own. It is highly unlikely that your children will lose teeth on the same night, but anything is possible. If your children are all in the tooth-losing phase, which is 5-10 years of age, it could indeed happen. The decision on how many to purchase is solely up to you.
