If you have a teen or tween daughter living in your house, then you more than likely know all about the popular boy band, One Direction. I think my daughter is slightly obsessed with them. Which is why when a package arrived with a toothbrush that sings a One Direction song, she grabbed it and did a happy dance.
Hey, if a singing toothbrush gets my girl to brush her teeth, then I’m all for listening to it belt out a One Direction song for 2 minutes! The new ARM & HAMMER Tooth Tunes toothbrushes, launched in 2012, are a great way to get any kid brushing the right way!
While my camera-shy tween said there was no way I was going to take a picture of her brushing her teeth, she did say that she really likes her new One Direction toothbrush. She said — “I have to brush for a long time to hear the whole song!” Before, she didn’t realize that she just wasn’t brushing her teeth for the right length of time. Now, we both know she’s getting her teeth clean because the song acts as a built-in timer.
There is a button on the front that she can press to start the music, then it’s time to brush (and maybe dance a bit) until the music stops. There is also a nice little nub on the back, to keep the brush from slipping out of hands. I love that the toothbrush has a wide base that’s easy to grip. It also allows the toothbrush to stand up on its own, No need to have a toothbrush cup cluttering up the sink.
Her one and only wish was that the brush itself would rotate, but she said the vibrations of the brush still felt good on her teeth and gums.
From the makers of the #1 kids battery toothbrushes, ARM & HAMMER™ Tooth Tunes™ features one of a kind Music in Your Mouth™ technology. This proprietary technology streams sound vibrations from the bristles of the toothbrush through the teeth, allowing kids to hear the music while they brush.
As a mom, anything that can get my daughter excited about brushing her teeth, is a win in my book! Knowing she is following the dentist’s recommendation of brushing for two minutes, without a big back and forth ordeal, is a relief.
