Dr. Fresh is a company devoted to making our smiles white, bright and healthy. They do this with over 250 affordable personal care products. I was impressed to learn that Dr. Fresh owns more patents than any other U.S. oral care company. When browsing the site, I was also surprised to see that our family actually used many of their products in the past.
You know how it goes,
“MOM, can I have the Snoopy toothbrush??”
“Will it make you brush your teeth more?”
Indeed, she brushes her teeth as much as she should, but not always for the recommended length. I tried the recommended ‘hum a tune’ while you brush, but she’d always lose track and give up or forget to stop and still be brushing 5 minutes later.
To help her with this, Isabelle got some of Dr Fresh’s best-selling kids’ toothbrushes, called the Firefly. And the name suits it, because it flashes like one. And, it’s not intended to be just a ‘pretty product’ either (actually it was this prettiness that made Isabelle swoon over the toothbrush to begin with). But, it’s actually a timer that lets kids know when the recommended brushing time has passed. You just have to push up on the end of the toothbrush for it to start. I have Isabelle brush the top for the first round, then the bottom for another. This way, I’m making sure that she is brushing her entire mouth. Firefly is bright enough to see in a well lit room, and apparently it’s ‘super cool’ to brush with the lights off. And to me, if it’s ‘super cool’ to brush your teeth for 2 whole minutes,
then so be it!
The Firefly comes in such a wide assortment of colors, and in single or double packs. The price is comparable to other toothbrushes, yet this one does a little more for the buck.
And, this Firefly has caused enough buzz to attract the thumbs-up from The Doctors (Show) too!
