Philips Sonicare Toothbrush For Kids – Review

11th December 2011

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.
My kids now use these brushes every day, and they are actually brushing more than just their front teeth, and for longer than a few seconds. They literally enjoy brushing their teeth now, and anything that makes them want to brush their teeth is a huge win.


The Philips Sonicare Toothbrushes for kids are also ergonomically designed to allow your kids to have  a nice grip while they brush, no matter what their age. The brushes are pricier than a manual brush of course, $69.99 CDN MSRP at Loblaws, Wal-Mart and Shoppers Drug Mart, ($49.99 on Amazon right now – as of the Dec. 11 post date), but once purchased you only have to switch out the brush head.
I think promoting proper dental care from an early age is super important and using a toothbrush like this one with young kids, can really help make the process easier and fun as well.

I Made the Switch with the Sonicare Flexcare+ – Review

11th September 2011

A few weeks back, I was sent a Sonicare Flexcare Power toothbrush from Mom Central Canada to review and also to give away. I was excited about trying it out because I’ve pretty much neglected my teeth and gums beyond the basic day to day brushing.

I’ve owned and used aa different power toothbrush, and I thought it was alright. However, in comparison, I think the Flexcare is a really nice quality toothbrush – very solid and dependable and well made.

So, since using the Sonicare brush, what have I noticed?

  • My teeth definitely feel much cleaner after brushing – similar to when I get them professionally cleaned.
  • My gums feel and look healthier and also feel super clean.
  • I’ve noticed less bleeding between my teeth/gums when flossing.
Some of my favorite features of this fab power toothbrush?
  • Love that it has several different modes, from cleaning to massage
  • LOVE the UV brush head sanitizer – I wish it was bigger so I could sanitize other things around the house. (sort of kidding)
  • I like the two minute timer too – reminds me that I really don’t brush long enough without it.
I would definitely endorse this toothbrush to others, especially those who like really clean teeth and gums, and prefer an electric toothbrush. Although I haven’t been to the dentist since I started using this toothbrush, I absolutely notice a difference, and think (hope) that continued, prolonged use of the Sonicare brush will personally lead to fewer, easier future visits to the dentist.
    Disclosure – I am participating in the PHILIPS SONICARE FLEXCARE+ program by Mom Central Canada on behalf of Philips Canada. I received a Sonicare product pack and a gift card as a thank you for my participation. The opinions on this blog are my own.
