My daughter currently thinks that brushing her teeth rates up there with playdates and puppies and even has a song she dances to as she brushes her teeth. But, I know there will soon be a day when brushing her teeth will be a struggle both morning and night, which is why I love that GUM has teamed up with Crayola to introduce a cute and fun alternative to the boring toothbrush.
The GUM brand Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush is shaped just like a Crayola marker with a kid-sized toothbrush head and a suction cup bottom that makes it irresistible to kids. The Crayola shaped GUM toothbrush is not only cute and clever, it also teaches kids good dental habits in a fun and practical way.
The light timer stays on for 60 seconds, with two color-coordinated lights flashing to illuminate the toothbrush handle and allowing kids to time their brushing to make sure they are doing a thorough job. When my daughter found out that the toothbrush lights up when you press the bottom, she insisted that she brush her teeth immediately. Now, every time we offer it to her she gets really excited and starts dancing to her toothbrushing song. I love that the Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush not only keeps her attention focused on brushing, it also helps me keep track of how long she’s been scrubbing those pearly whites.
The suction cup base keeps the toothbrush upright and clean, without having to use an additional toothbrush holder or having to lay it flat on the counter in between brushings. My daughter especially likes sticking the toothbrush to the countertop (or the mirror, if she’s assisted) after she brushes, but hubby and I especially like that the toothbrush head isn’t laying in whatever the kids have dripped on the counters.
If you have a kid who hates brushing their teeth, or if you’re as lucky as I am and have a kiddo who would brush their teeth all day if they were given the chance, you should definitely check out all the cool new GUM brand children’s oral hygiene offerings. Because I’m a coupon freak, I am really excited to tell you that I’ve got a $1-off coupon code for the GUM Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush by using the promo code GUM100 at www.gumbrand.com.
