Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush and Flossers

Want your child to practice better dental hygiene? You might want to introduce a Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush from Sunstar’s GUM® brand ($2.99) into their dental routine. This toothbrush comes in four great colors (red, blue, yellow and green) and is a fun way to help kids practice better dental hygiene.

It works like this. Each toothbrush has an LED light that lights up for 60-second intervals to let kids know how long they should be brushing their teeth. My daughter took to this idea immediately. Not only does the toothbrush look like a giant version of the crayons she loves but she never wants to stop brushing before the light switches off. The bristles are soft too which are wonderful for tiny mouths. A friend of mine gave them to all the children she cares for and her daughter loves to brush her teeth in the dark just to see the light blinking away. All the kids I know who have used the Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush think it makes brushing their teeth a lot of fun.

What really amazed me though is the Flossers. GUM has designed easy to hold flossers for kids that come in purple, green and blue. My daughter will not go to bed until she has flossed her teeth now. Once she even woke us up at 3 o'clock in the morning to floss because she had forgotten during her nightly bedtime routine. She is that into flossing now that she has the GUM Crayola Flossers. Each flosser looks like a crayon and helps kids remove plaque that brushing cannot do alone. It is a great way for kids ages three and up to learn about good dental hygiene and make flossing a lifelong habit. As for me, I could not be more pleased. I find flossing relaxing myself and I was wondering just how to introduce it in a stress-free way to my child and these Crayola Flossers have completely taken the guess work out of the equation.

Crayola GUM products can be found at your local drugstore and big box store. There was going to be a fun giveaway for a lucky reader with a handy little bag, toothbrush and flossers too. Except that my kid liked them so much she really got into that bag and used it all up. So you know it's a good product!
