Funky Toothbrushes to Get Kids Excited About Brushing

Sometimes little ones, and even no-so-little ones, flat out refuse to brush their teeth on their own or allow a parent to do it for them.

Unfortunately, tooth brushing is a nonnegotiable task for healthy children. And twice daily meltdowns over the subject aren’t fun for anyone, so we did a little research.

We found 6 funky toothbrushes to get kids excited about brushing!

GUM® Star Wars Light Saber Toothbrush

This product is perfect for the mini Jedi in your life! The brush is in the shape of a light saber and comes in three unique designs: Anakin Skywalker (blue stem), Darth Vader (red stem) and Yoda (green stem). The light saber flashes for 1 minute at a time to encourage kids to brush for longer.

You Get:

12 toothbrushes per bag

$29.29 per bag ($2.44 per toothbrush)

Batteries are included

GUM® Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush

Similar to the Star Wars Light Saber Toothbrush, the Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush is the perfect choice for any child. Who doesn’t love to color? The brush’s LED lights flash for 1 minute at a time to encourage longer brushing. Additionally, the brushes come with countertop suction cup holders that will keep their bristles cleaner. Four colors are included: Green, blue, yellow and red.

Infant Finger Toothbrush

Designed for adults to gently clean their infant’s gums, this latex-free product is fascinating. Simply slip this thimble-esque finger topper on and remove plaque from your child’s gums and/or erupting baby teeth. While your child may not be excited about brushing just yet, it’s important to form a mouth-cleaning routine as early as possible.

It’s a toothbrush and a water fountain all in one! Eliminate paper cups and wasted water, and quit putting your head in the sink by investing in one of these! Kids will love the fountain aspect, and you’ll love the reduced counter clutter! Also, the bristle section is replaceable, so you won’t have to throw out the entire brush every three months!

Pick your child’s brush based on their music taste! Then, songs will play for 2 minutes directly into their head while they brush (assuming they’re using the correct method)! Electric toothbrushes can get kids excited about brushing on their own, and when you combine one such brush with One Direction or Kidz Bop, then your child is bound to love it!

Upon reading reviews for this product, several buyers complained that there’s no way to replace its battery and that the battery lifespan was short. While this certainly sounds like a great product, you may want to further research it before purchasing.
