Fortunately, thanks to Dr. Fresh, we now have the Firefly Toothbrush, which makes brushing fun and encourages good dental hygiene!
According to the website, "Since 1998 Dr. Fresh has been focused on manufacturing quality oral care products, from baby toothbrushes to denture tablets. The Dr. Fresh brand expressly caters to the consumer who seeks high quality at a reasonable price (the best of both worlds). Using innovation in design and intelligence in the manufacturing process, we pride ourselves on products that offer the utmost in personal care value."
The Firefly Toothbrush (ARV $.99) is one of the most innovative products I've seen when it comes to kids’ dental hygiene. When you squeeze the bottom of the Firefly Toothbrush, a flashing light will go off for 60 seconds. Initially, the flashing red light distracted Little Music Man. He’d keep pulling the toothbrush out of his mouth to play with it and watch the light, but I had to remind him that it wasn’t a toy. This happened a couple more times after the initial use.
However, once he started to get used to the flashing light, he started to understand how brushing each dental arch doesn’t stop until the light goes off (first he brushes the bottom teeth, then he turns on the light again to brush the top teeth). I no longer struggle with him to continue brushing after two seconds, and he looks forward to using the Firefly Toothbrush while he brushes his teeth.
Another great thing about the Firefly Toothbrush is how it will “remind” you when it’s time to be replaced. I never remember to replace toothbrushes after the recommended amount of time, but you’ll know when to replace the Firefly once its light no longer works.
I wish I had the Firefly when I was a kid…maybe I wouldn’t have gotten so many cavities!
The Firefly is one of the neatest, most affordable inventions in dental care for kids, and I know it will help Little Music Man practice good hygiene so he won’t end up with a lot of cavities like his mommy!
