Colgate's New Toothbrush Encourages Kids to Take Charge - Review

I received products for review from Colgate.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Parents everywhere understand the struggle of teaching their kids to be self-sufficient. In honor of back to school, Colgate just launched their latest items in their kids product portfolio, the Interactive Powered Toothbrush.  

I know all too well the importance of oral hygiene. I know because I didn't do so well with it myself and paid a hefty price. Sugars and acid eroded my top teeth and I'm now doomed to top falsies. That's why I harp to my kids the significance of proper brushing and healthy eating habits.  Anything that will give kids incentive and encouragement to brush their teeth correctly is definitely worth a try.

The new Colgate Interactive Powered Toothbrushes make oral hygiene more fun, teaching kids to be a better brusher with help from their favorite character's voices.  The toothbrush is available in a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle or a Minions theme.

Depending on the theme, either a Minions or a TMNT character will speak to your child throughout the brushing process.  The batteries can be replaced, but the brushes automatically come with batteries in them.  There's an on/off button at the front of the toothbrush.

Once the toothbrush is turned on, the character talk during different times within two minutes and congratulate your child when finished.  One feature that I'm particularly fond of is that the characters tell your child when it's time to move to and brush each quadrant of their teeth (top left, top right, bottom left, and bottom right).  I think this is a fantastic way to get kids to brush all areas of their teeth.  Once the two minutes is up and your child has been congratulated, a character will remind your kid to power off the brush and will continue to do so until it's done.  

The toothbrushes are fun, the characters are encouraging, and the overall design is child-friendly.  If these toothbrushes don't get kids excited about brushing their teeth, I'm not sure what will.
