Hi everybody, and welcome to anew NIL-Tech drawing tutorial: "Tooth Fairy". When you are a child, losing a tooth is thought a right of passage in many different cultures. Parents throughout history have created rituals to celebrate with their kids. The tale of the Tooth Fairy is one of the most traditional and iconic childhood tales in the world.


Here are some interesting facts about Tooth fairy:

1. She's Not Always a Fairy. Worldwide, the Tooth Fairy varies in appearance. Most of the baby-tooth traditions around the world are connected to rodents. Depending on the culture, the Tooth Fairy can be a squirrel, a mouse, or a rat. Cultural diversity is just one of the crucial things that make the Tooth Fairy so unique. Despite the form she embodies, the Tooth Fairy is one of the most splendid magical creatures all over the world.

2. She's Younger Than You Think. When compared to Santa Claus, who dates back to ancient history, the Tooth Fairy only went back to the early 1900s. She was first discussed in a post in the Chicago Daily Tribune's "Family Hints" column from September 1908. The story was more promoted by Esther Watkins Arnold in the 1927 bet children, The Tooth Fairy.

3. The Tooth Fairy had her museum. Found in a split level home in Deerfield, IL. The Tooth Fairy Museum showcased art, books, dolls, as well as other Tooth Fairy memorabilia.

4. She visits each child around 20 times! Kids have 20 baby teeth that will fall out over a few years. As long as each tooth is left under the pillow, the Tooth Fairy will find it!

5. No Tooth? Not a problem! Sometimes our baby teeth fall out, and we do not even realize it. By the time we discover it's lost, we can not find it! However, even if you can't find your tooth once it falls out, she will still come to you.
