Tooth Tunes Encourage Kids to Brush Their Teeth

Arm & Hammer Tooth Tunes Toothbrush Review

 

This is a sponsored post.

I have written many times about how much Grace hates brushing her teeth. It's been a struggle for her entire life, and subsequently, it is a problem for Allie as well. (She learned that we throw a big fit at tooth brushing time from her sister. Isn't that nice?)

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, we got a One Direction Tooth Tunes toothbrush, and I have now had to set a limit on the number of times she may brush per day.

No kidding.

Grace may brush her teeth 4 times per day, but no more. She must save 1 of those brushings for bedtime.

We're going through a lot of toothpaste, but I don't mind because Grace's teeth are clean without argument.

One thing that we had to fix right away is that Grace chewed on the toothbrush for two minutes instead of brushing. Learn from my sneaky child; parental supervision is still required.

Tooth Tunes toothbrushes are really neat. When you push the button, the toothbrush plays two minutes of cool music and then a little “Oh yeah!” sound to let your kids know they've brushed long enough. Two minutes is important; that's how long dentists recommend that kids brush in order to maintain adequate oral health.

Let me tell you from personal experience. You do not want your children to get cavities, fillings, root canals, and crowns. The importance of brushing for two minutes two or three times a day and flossing once cannot be overstated. Anything that makes that process more enticing is getting a big thumbs up from me.

The Tooth Tunes brush that Grace got is a standard big kid-sized electric toothbrush, but there's also a Tooth Tunes Jr. for littler kids. I am going to look for that one because Allie is infatuated with Grace's toothbrush. She really wants one of her own.

If One Direction isn't your kids' thing, you can also get music from Cody Simpson, Big Time Rush, Black Eyed Peas, Kidz Bop, and others. (I am so out of touch. I have never heard of most of these songs, but I'm sure our kids {yours and mine, I mean} would know them all if we asked.) You can find the whole list of songs on the Tooth Tunes website.
