Is it weird that I’m kind of obsessed with paying attention to my kids’ teeth?
I don’t know about you, but trying to get my eight year old son to brush his teeth is beyond painful. In fact, even when he does brush them, I usually catch him brushing him with water or maybe just the front teeth.
In the end, I’m either standing there, watching him and instructing what to do or I am actually brushing his teeth to ensure that he’s doing it right. I’m not totally sure who hates this more.
It’s not fun at all.
Luckily my five year old daughter thinks brushing her teeth is the best thing ever, and she’ll brush them ten times a day if I don’t stop her.
See, it all balances out in the end.
Enter Philips Sonicare Toothbrushes to the rescue!!!!
A while back I had the chance to test out my own Sonicare Flexcare Toothbrush, and loved it. Then I had the chance to check out the Sonicare spa suite at Blissdom Canada ,which was fantastic. Between the numerous lattes and massages, I noticed that there were also Sonicare toothbrushes for kids. So I was very excited to have the chance to try out the Sonicare toothbrushes with the kids.
First of all, when they arrived, my son was very excited to try them out – seriously begging me to open the package a.s.a.p. so he could check out all the cool stuff they do. My five year old just thought they looked “very pretty” and wanted hers to decorate. Receiving the brushes and having the kids use them confirmed what I assumed – that these are fantastic power toothbrushes.
Why is this toothbrush so fab?
- They come with three interchangeable panels, so kids can make their toothbrush their own.
- Each toothbrush comes with two heads – one for younger kids, one for older.
- The toothbrushes have a timer (which can be set at one or two minutes) to help kids brush their teeth long enough.
- There are musical tones, that are reminders to move to a different area for brushing, so that no section is missed – really my favorite part of this brush.
