Brushing teeth is one of those things that happens multiple times a day and is really important for the health of all of us including our kids. Having the right tools to get the job done is always extremely helpful for the war on cavities. Firefly sells all the things your kids need to keep their teeth clean and their products are doecorated in cool designs and colors that help make brushing as fun as it can be.
This year is the 40th anniversary of Hello Kitty which has always been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl. With two little girls of my own I knew they would love the addition of Hello Kitty brought onto the bathroom counter. The toothbrush has a light up timer to help kids know how long they need to brush. It starts out green, then blinks to yellow and then finally red to stop. That is a full 60 seconds and how long one should brush one row up teeth. Just press the button and continue the same with the second row of teeth. Kids enjoy watching the stop light design of the lights and I like that my girls know exactly how long they need to brush each row. The suction cup on the bottom works on bathroom counters and keeps it upright so the bristles don’t have to touch anything and can stay clean. The toothbrushes are for ages 3-12.
After brushing is complete kids ages 6 and up can use the Firefly Hello Kitty Anticavity Mouth Rinse. This melon kiss flavor tastes great (I actually did try it) and my older daughter agrees with me on the yummy flavor. It is sugar-free, alcohol-free and contains fluoride to fight cavities and strengthen tooth enamel. The great part is the attached cup holder right in the bottom so that it is convenient and shows kids exactly how much they need to use.
Their variety of products are available in Wal-Mart, grocery and drug stores around the nation. Dental care now has a fun factor and with familiar characters kids will want to brush and not just because they have to. Kids have to brush anyway and it sure is a whole lot easier when my kids are instead reminding me when it is time to brush so that they can use their “super cool firefly stuff.”
