I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of Firefly®, REACH®, and One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.
Getting our children to take care of their teeth properly can be a bit of a struggle. My son is eleven and I still feel like I have to remind him to brush his teeth nearly every day. However, I have found the more fun we make brush time the more he remembers and actually enjoys it. Thanks to Firefly and REACH I’ve been able to make brush time more like playtime.
Firely is actually a leader in children’s oral care solutions. I love their recent expansion of toothbrushes for kids with fun characters and products that are ADA approved. They offer Good. Clean. Fun. at an affordable price point for every family. If you’re a Star Wars fan like my son you will love the complete Firefly Star Wars Collection, including the Kylo Ren Lightsaber toothbrush that lights up for 60 seconds, teaching kids to brush for one full minute on each row of teeth.
Tips for Getting Kids to Brush
Make it Fun. My son loves the character voices, memorable movie quotes, flashing lights and lightsaber sound effects of the Kylo Ren Lightsaber toothbrush. Rinsing can be fun too with the new Firefly Spiderman Fun Pump Rinse. My son really loved the convenient no mess cup to be sure he dispenses the perfect amount of rinse. I also love that the rinse is sugar free, alcohol free and has an amazing melon smell my son loves.
Play Dentist. Go over the importance of brushing with your children. Such as, did you know that you need to change your toothbrush every three months or every time you get a cold? REACH is a trusted brand with a wide variety of products that offer more benefits for a lower price than the competition which means I won’t be spending a fortune every time we replace our brushes. It’s good to always have extra toothbrushes on hand. My son loves learning so this makes it more fun for him to know the reasons why brushing is so important.
Sing a Song. There’s a cute brush your teeth song on YouTube my son really enjoys. It keeps him brushing longer without even noticing!
Do it Together. Brush with your kids. Do this every time you brush so they can see how it is a habit for you. Kids learn so much just from watching us. They are sure to get in the routine sooner than later!
The Firefly Star Wars Collection Kylo Ren Lightsaber toothbrush and Firefly Spiderman Fun Pump Rinse can be found at Walmart and Walgreens.
The REACH UltraClean toothbrush, available in a single or 4 count, is available at Walmart and Target. Or, if you want a toothbrush with longer outer bristles and shorter inner bristles to perfectly clean along the gun line and the plaque from every tooth, try the REACH Advanced Design Toothbrush, available at Walmart and Walgreens.
