Tooth Fairy Letters From Kids Prove We Are Raising A Nation Of Negotiators (PHOTOS)

LOOK: 15 Incredible Letters To The Tooth Fairy

A recent survey lays the Tooth Fairy's financial habits bare -- according to Delta Dental's annual poll, she offered kids over 15 percent more money per tooth last year than she did in 2011. (HuffPost Business explains what this may mean for our economy.)

But can a nation's relationship with one of its most prominent magical celebrities be measured by sterile statistics alone? We think not. When it comes to evaluating the Tooth Fairy's role in modern life, it clearly makes more sense to look for insight in the words and pictures of our youngest citizens. (We feel the same way about a wide variety of other topics, too.)

The following sample, collected from the HuffPost Parents community, is far from scientific, but we suspect it accurately reflects a prominent trend in Tooth Fairy correspondence: everyone just wants to make a deal.
