How to Get Your Kids to Enjoy Brushing their Teeth

One thing that’s tough with my sons is getting them to regularly brush their teeth without telling them to do so! It’s not that they don’t like brushing their teeth, it’s just that they do it so quickly, I often wonder if they did a good enough job. I’m usually up in the bathroom doing an “open your mouth” check to see if their teeth look good and clean. 4 boys, every morning and every night. It’s quite the scene!

I’m always looking for new products and ideas to try out to make brushing more enjoyable and just down-right fun for them (but that will get the job done thoroughly!).

I was excited to have Crest and Oral-B send me some new products to try out, along with information about a Disney Magic Timer App by Oral-B.

So what is the Disney Magic Timer App by Oral-B all about?

It allows you to bring more fun to your daily brushing routine with Disney Magic Timer by Oral-B, powered by DreamPlay! It features 23 of your favorite Disney, Marvel and Star Wars characters, and you use this app to seamlessly encourage your kids to brush longer. Collect a new digital sticker after each successful two minutes help with your child’s brushing; there’s track progress with stars and milestone badges on the Brushing Calendar, too! KIDS LOVE IT!!

Disney Magic Timer App

And parents? I’m happy to say that longer, happier brushing for your little one is just a download away!

All it takes is three simple steps:
1. Download the Disney Magic Timer app by Oral-B
2. Scan any Crest or Oral-B Pro-Health Stages product with your iPad, iPhone or iTouch
3. Reveal more fun and let the brushing begin.

Now for the fun products!!

My son Henry was over-the-moon, it’s pretty amazing how the “right” toothbrush and toothpaste can really inspire!

Oral-B Pro-Health JR. Health Toothbrush – it’s designed for kids aged 8 through 12, and this brush is perfect for getting in the tight spaces and gaps. With gentle vibrating bristles, its deep cleaning power helps break up plaque. It’s battery-powered and retails for $5.99.


Henry’s came in an FROZEN-inspired theme, but there are many more, too!

I don’t know about you, but anyway to inspire happy and healthy brushing… I’m ON IT for my guys!
