Sonicare For Kids Is Teaching My Whole Family How To Brush

Thanks to Mom Central I heard about Sonicare for Kids. An electric toothbrush that teaches kids how to brush their teeth.

Sonicare For Kids is specifically designed to help parents teach their child (ages 4-10) to brush, then to help them transition their child to independent brushing. With its kid-friendly features for more effective brushing, Sonicare For Kids delivers superior results through every brushing phase.

Some of the product features are:
  • A Timer that increases over time to the dentist recommended 2 minutes.
  • Age appropriate tooth brushes.
  • Power modes for the right amount of cleaning. The low mode is for age 4 and over and the higher is for age 7.
  • The brush comes with 3 different designer panels depending on your child's taste.
Sonicare believes the following:
  • Advise your kids on the importance of oral health—just as milk makes for strong bones, brushing makes for healthy teeth and gums
  • Brush your teeth with your kids and make it fun
  • Create special moments with your child after brushing, extending this time into your daily routine
Look for Sonicare For Kids at Wal-Mart (new to Wal-Mart as of May 3rd). Or get yours at Target or Amazon

What I Can Tell You: My son and daughter were given the brush and told that it would vibrate and that when the music played they were to change position of the brush.  My daughter loved it, my son doesn't like the vibration in his mouth. My daughter however, loves the toothbrush. I love that the music is very subtle and not very babyish. I also love that my daughter is learning how long you are supposed to brush your teeth at a very early age. My husband brushed her teeth last night and asked her what the music was. I heard her telling him that when the music changed he is supposed to move the brush. Then I heard her say, "no daddy, you aren't supposed to shut it off, the brush shuts off all by itself. You didn't brush long enough."

The toothbrush comes with two brushes, the handle, toothbrush covers, 3 interchangeable covers and a charger with a place to put the toothbrush and 2 extra spots for extra brushes. Not bad for an electric toothbrush under $70.00.

I highly recommend this toothbrush and think it is a great way to get kids excited about brushing.

"I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Sonicare and received a free Sonicare For Kids toothbrush to facilitate my review.”

    I would like to pick this up for my daughter. She currently has one with blinking lights. I am pretty sure the toothbrush you have is under $7.00 not $70.00. LMAO!!!
