We have been an Oral-B electric toothbrush family for the last couple of years, starting with a basic model and then last year upgraded to the Genius 9000 fancy one. The three of us share the handle and (obviously!) have our own heads. This was causing me much rage as a certain small boy was ‘forgetting’ to remove his head each night and morning.
You know when you have kids (or husbands) and they ‘forget’ the same thing day in and day out and you should just ignore it, move on. But you don’t and it brings new rage every day? Just me? Anyway… The lovely people at Oral-B offered to send Ben a new toothbrush of his own, and even better than that a Star Wars one, just as the new film was coming out.
For me this meant no more rage and for him his own handle and head to leave on all the time! I love using an electirc toothbrush as your teeth feel so much cleaner, and letting Ben use one means his teeth have always got a 10/10 at the dentist.
The Oral-B Stages Power Kids Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush featuring Star Wars has the great 2D cleaning, soft bristles suitable for 3+ and a small head making it easier for kids to get to all their teeth. It also vibrates at the end of the teeth cleaning as a timer to let them know they have done 2 minutes.
It is a great tie in to the film to encourage teeth brushing, and there is also the Disney MagicTimer App by Oral-B, add it to their (or your) phone and it has rewards on it for teeth brushing and tracks their progress. For me, anything that makes them want to do it instead of me having to remind twice every day ‘BRUSH YOUR TEETH’
The charge lasts for 5 days and then Ben now has a charger base in his room to be independant and remember to put it on.
There is also Star Wars Oral-B toothpaste for children age 8+ in Berry flavour gel.
The new Star Wars film was a complete hit with us here, I have to admit it is the first one I have fully understood it all. I loved all the women in it and their roles.
Now the next battle in this house is to get Ben to put his new toothbrush into the holder on the sink, I managed to find an electic toothbrush holder that holds 2 and tooth paste. So let the new twice a day rage begin with pondering how hard is it for a 10 year old to put a toothbrush into a pot. Answer… virtually impossible apparently *rolls eyes*
