I consider you moms who have kids who bounce off to the bathroom and happily brush their teeth to be lucky. I don't have that. I get attitude, mumbling, and the slowest movements possible. It's like watching a grumpy old man. It's horrible, and I've tried so many incentives and little tricks. All but one. And I think I found a magic toothbrush.
What I saw in the bathroom blew my mind. He liked it. He danced. He smiled. He stopped and asked me, "Can I use this tomorrow? (sure! Just make sure you actually brush all of your teeth.) Okay, I'll dance too!"
Every ARM & Hammer Tooth Tunes toothbrush features 2 full minutes of music - this helps encourage longer brushing. Think about it, kids get in and get out and have to be missing teeth or not doing a thorough enough job. With a Tooth Tunes brush, if you set the rule as they must be brushing while the music is playing, you're encouraging them to hit all of their teeth and have fun while doing it.
So how does the toothbrush work? The brush technology produces sound vibrations from the bristles to the teeth so you'll hear it while you brush.You press a button and start brushing after the beep. It's simple. It's fun. It got him to brush his teeth without complaining. For a retail price of $9.99, I would pay it in a heart beat! It also comes with batteries already installed, so it's ready to go as soon as you bring it home.
There are two new brushes that feature the hot new boy band One Direction! One plays "One Thing" and the other "What Makes You Beautiful". Don't have a 1D fan? You can find the following brushes at a retailer near you:
“All Day” performed by Cody Simpson
“Dynamite” performed by Taio Cruz
“I Gotta Feeling” performed by Black Eyed Peas
“If I Ruled the World” performed by Big Time Rush
“Round & Round” performed by Selena Gomez & The Scene
“Tonight, Tonight” performed by Hot Chelle Rae
“We Will Rock You” performed by Queen
