Bed time routines go fairly well except brushing their teeth. I can’t quite figure out why we’ve tried lots of things, I think it’s mostly me. At that time of night I get grumpy and out of patience and it’s contagious. The kids catch it like wildfire. So Silliness needs to be found in any shape or form. Look at these happy kids brushing their teeth.
Zoe has the Darth Vader toothbrush just released by GUM. The GUM® Star WarsTM Power Toothbrush is available in two of our children’s very well known characters, Darth Vader™ and Clone Captain Rex™.(Miles just calls him Storm Trooper) Zoe actually chose to have Darth Vader over the Light Saber toothbrush. She said she wished it was Princess Lei though. This battery-operated power toothbrush features ultra-soft oscillating bristles that gently massage gums and teeth. Nearly all dentists surveyed agree that a power toothbrush like this one may make it easier for children to brush properly. And it certainly makes them happier!
Now Miles is using the GUM® Star WarsTM LightsaberTM Toothbrush. This toothbrush is exciting because it lights up. Nearly 90 percent of dentists say that most of their pediatric patients don’t brush long enough. This lightsaber-shaped toothbrush flashes for 60-second intervals to help train kids to brush longer and ensure better oral health. Available in three character designs, color-coordinated lights illuminate the entire brush in colors specific to each character’s lightsaber: blue for Anakin Skywalker™, green for Yoda™ and red for Darth Vader™. So if you don’t have a timer then you need to make sure you child brushes for at least two rounds of flashing.
I also wanted to make sure you knew about the funny video that GUM created, called Dark Side, Good Habits. Tell me what you think.
The kids found the other pack (GUM® Star WarsTM Manual Toothbrush Twinpack – Makes brushing fun with its colorful character-inspired design including brushes representing: Anakin Skywalker™, Yoda™, Darth Vader™ and Clone Captain Rex™. ) we received this morning and said, hey mom we can have Star Wars toothbrushes upstairs and downstairs. LOL, and side note, my husband LOVED the lightsaber toothbrush too.
I had to let you know that GUM® is currently hosting the GUM® Brush Like a Jedi™ sweepstakes on their Facebook page .
