My poor children. They have inherited my overly large teeth, and I worry that they may inherit my tendency towards cavities, too. This means I am extra careful to make sure they brush their teeth properly and I always make sure they’re booked in for routine checkups with our Dentist Wellington. I’ve never had a problem getting them to brush their teeth – they are rule followers, and if mom says you have to, well, you have to. (If only they shared this thought about making their beds…I wonder if there is an app for THAT? I digress…)

Getting them to brush well, and for long enough? Well that is another thing entirely. We’ve tried all kinds of things. We have a minute timer, but then have a battle as to whether it was flipped over for the second minute. I’ve tried a regular time too, but…boring.

Probably the craziest thing I’ve done is get them to brush their teeth to music – similar to how you should wash your hands to the tune of “Happy Birthday”, twice, only with a longer song. In the morning, we like to punk it out to the song “Bedhead” by The Jimmies. It’s a pretty appropriate song choice for their mirror reflection (and two minutes long) but maybe the head-bopping nature isn’t the most productive to truly thorough brushing, if you know what I mean.

My daughter has always loved her Oral-B toothbrushes festooned with her favorite Disney princesses, so when I learned about the free Oral-B Disney timer app, I figured it was a match made in heaven! (A productive use of her iPod is a winner in my book, as is anything Disney-related.)

So here is their creative solution for the brushing conundrum: using their FREE (did I mention free?) app , when you scan any Crest or Oral-B ProHealth Stages product with your smart device (in our case, the iPod), each time the kiddos brush for two minutes, a new hidden image of a Disney or Marvel character is revealed. The more they brush, the more prizes they collect in their magic album! The digital calendar within the app also tracks their progress, which is great for motivated kids like Miss M. She loves to see those rewards!

The app makes a cute little brushing sound as it counts down. Isn’t it fun?

What kid doesn’t love a fun toothbrush? My son was pleased to see the Marvel characters for the “big kids” and a flavor other than bubble gum (of which my daughter liked, but he has never been a fan).

We’ve just returned from a week aboard the Disney Fantasy, and with the kids being so anxious to get out of the room and DO things, having a timer was a blessing to keep them on task. And since the app is loaded on all our devices, we didn’t have to pack anything extra to do the timing!

If you need to encourage your little ones to brush longer, the Oral-B Disney Timer App is the way to go.
