The Philips Sonicare Toothbrush - For Kids!

Want to know I secret that I'm really ashamed of?  I took my daughter to the dentist a couple months ago and she had cavities.  (yes, you heard me right, not one cavity but multiple cavities).

Needless to say, since our eye opening visit to the dentist, our brushing routine has changed drastically.  We're now very strict about brushing not just before bedtime, but twice a day (morning and night) .  We used to let our daughter quickly brush on her own, but now we're pretty strict on making sure it's a longer session (and that we help right at the end), trying to work our way up to 2 minutes.

One of the first things that was recommended to us to help with developing these new habits was getting a Philips Sonicare For Kids toothbrush.

The Sonicare not only encourages healthy brushing habits, it's kinda fun to use as well.  My husband and I have been using the adult version for years now, and my daughter thinks it's really cool to be able to brush just like mom and dad.

Probably the most useful tool on the toothbrush is the KidTimer, which slowly increases brushing time over the course of 90 days, working up to that magical 2 minute mark.  Another feature we love is that the brush heads are easily interchangeable, so multiple kids can use he same handle.  My daughters favorite feature?  She thinks it looks really cool, which makes her want to use it.  Hey - I'll take it!

GET IT YOURSELF!  The Philips Sonicare for Kids retails for $69.99 can be purchased at Wal-Marts nationwide.  Also find them online at Amazon.com

- 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.

  1. I love that this brush is on Simple!! I am a dental hygienist and was so excited that Sonicare finally came out with this brush for kids. It is such an awesome investment you can make for your kids.
    Another great thing about the brush is it is made to last 5-7 years. All you have to do is replace the brush heads...and they make two sizes to grow with your child too.
    Yay Simple! Yay Sonicare!!


Thank you for visiting us at SIMPLE!
