Getting my son to brush for the recommended time can be a real challenge. That is until we discovered The Firefly Toothbrush. It lights up and blinks for one minute, making teeth brushing fun so my son will do it longer. I have him brush his top teeth, then once the light goes off, press again and do his bottom teeth.
The Firefly Ready Go Toothbrush contains a blinking LED in the handle that turns on once you squeeze the buttom. It looks like a stop light so it will start blinking on green, when time is almost up it changes to yellow, finally when time is up the red light will blink!
There is also a Star Wars version which pretty much works the same way, you push the button and then the light saber blinks until time is up! It also has side effects which my son and nephew love. They tried to use them as swords. LOL The Star Wars Light saber tooth brush is $6, Ready Go is $4 and the electric toothbrush is $7.
My son can also be a pain when it comes to using mouth wash. We were both super excited to see that the Firefly Mouth Wash came with it’s own little cup. I also love that it has a line showing where to fill the cup to. I haven’t had a fight out of my son since we received it. He actually WANTS to use the mouthwash! He says that it tastes better than any other kind we’ve tried for him. You can get the mouthwash for around $5.
The Firefly Toothbrush line is VERY affordable and it is a great way to make your kids WANT to brush their teeth! You can find this line at your local Walgreens. I have also seen them at Wal-Mart! For more information be sure to check out their website fireflytoothbrush.com.
