Super sonic brushing

Philips Sonicare Kids' electric toothbrushBuying an electric toothbrush for your smallest family member might seem like overkill, but kids who brush their pearly whites properly could save you a lot of money in the dentist’s chair later on!

The Phillips Sonicare Rechargeable Toothbrush for kids has lots of thoughtful details – including different age-appropriate brush heads and power modes (for ages 4-10). But the best bit (apart from the excellent sonic cleaning of course!) is the musical timer that has turned our brushing time in to SHOWTIME! It plays little beeps and boops along the way to encourage kids to swap from front to back and top to bottom, then plays a little musical ditty at the end (cue happy dance). The timer increases slowly over 90 days, building up to the dentist-recommended 2 minutes – which is waaay longer than our little girl would usually tolerate brushing without her new musical friend. Verdict? It’s a winner in our house.
