Em loves to brush her teeth. I mean really loves to brush. She doesn’t necessarily get the concept of what she is actually supposed to be doing. So instead of moving the brush up and down she shakes her head side to side. If you follow me on Instagram you can see a video of it here.
Anytime Em can sneak into the bathroom she immediately points to her toothbrush and asks “brush teeth?” It’s impossible to say no to her cuteness.
My eldest J-bird wasn’t so eager. I created a sticker reader system in which each time he brushed his teeth he received a sticker. At certain points throughout the collection of stickers he was able to turn them in for rewards like extra TV time or even sleepovers.
I really wish the new Oral B Disney Timer app would have been available back then. It definitely would have been the magic ticket to get J-bird to brush his teeth without any hassle. It has a wonderful reward system built right into it!
You can program multiple children using the same app, and each one gets its own reward chart! It is so easy to get started. Simply download the Disney Magic Timer app by Oral-B, scan any Crest or Oral-B Pro-Health Stages product, toothbrushes and toothpaste, with your iPad, iPhone or iTouch and let the magic of brushing begin!
Some of the awesome characters featured in this app are:
Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Jake, Sulley, Belle, Lightning McQueen, Ariel, Dusty, Cinderella, Tinker Bell, Rapunzel, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk and Captain America. You are sure to find the perfect match for your little one.
For Em the Oral-B Disney Magic Timer has just been an extra special treat. The dentist recommended two-minute countdown timer simply isn’t long enough in her opinion. She thinks it’s a game and always asks “again?” when it finishes.
I can already see that brushing will never be a problem for this family again. I’ve even begun to build up Preemies rewards by using the app when I clean her gums. The timer encourages children to brush their teeth instilling in them lifelong healthy habits. All healthy habits begin at home. The importance of good hygiene can go a long way. Especially when it comes to oral care. Good oral care starts before your baby even sprouts their first teeth. Cleaning a babies gums is as important as cleaning baby teeth.
In the mornings and the evenings, it is Em that reminds me and encourages me to brush my teeth too. Making sure that I make time to get her teeth brushed, I take advantage and brush mine at the same time. I am ready to get myself an Oral-B toothbrush so I can use the app for myself as well.
Is getting your children to brush their teeth a struggle? How could you incorporate the Oral-B Disney Magic Timer App into your child’s brushing routine? Do you think the Disney Character filled app could help?
