This past weekend the girls and I enjoyed a much-needed girl's weekend. We spent almost the entire weekend shopping, and it was tiring but so much fun! One of the things on our shopping list was the Philips Sonicare For Kids power toothbrush. The girls have been asking for this brush since the dentist recommended it back in January. After shopping at a few different stores, we finally found "the pretty one" as the girls call it and we headed home to try it out. Instead of getting two power brushes, I decided to start with one to see how they liked it. I have never used a brush like this so I figured we would give it a trial run, so I just purchased a new head for Lexi to use.
When we got it home, it was all I could do to keep them from ripping the package open and brushing their teeth in the dining room.
As soon as we opened the box, I realized I had made a mistake only purchasing one. Alexis and Anna immediately started discussing which stickers they should use to decorate their new power toothbrush, and at that point, I realized two brushes would have been a better choice.
They finally made their choice (after I told Alexis I would buy her one next weekend), and Lexi let Anna pick her favorite sticker.
Lexi even let Anna put the sticker on (I will have to follow through on that promise).
Once she had it ready to go, we had to charge it for a bit; it was torture, just torture to wait. I had to stop them from using it multiple times. It's a weird thing to say repeatedly "PLEASE stop trying to brush your teeth and let your toothbrush charge!!!". Kind of like living in a parallel universe, and I like it!
Brushing With Philips Sonicare For Kids:
Anna and Lexi both love this toothbrush, and I love that I no longer have to plead with them to brush their teeth before leaving for school or after dinner. Overall, I couldn't be happier. It was worth every penny. We haven't used it with the app yet; we've been swamped, but it looks like a fantastic tool for kids and parents alike.
The app is designed to help keep kids brushing longer, which honestly, isn't a problem right now. They are fighting over it as I type this, but I'm sure it will come in handy.
