Halloween is next week already. My kids love candy, but with that comes extra sugar consumption, a major culprit in the childhood cavity epidemic that is consuming the country.
I know this oh so well as my oldest has had many cavities filled already and he's only 8! We learned our lesson real fast and have limited him from eating things that get stuck in his teeth like fruit snacks and we practice better oral hygiene even though sometimes it seems like a dreaded chore.
We try to make it a little more pleasant by letting the boys' pick out their own toothpaste and buying them cool toothbrushes, i'm open to anything that will make brushing their teeth more fun.
We were recently sent a few of Firefly's new Ready Go Light Up Timer Toothbrushes to try and the boys couldn't wait to use them.
These new toothbrushes come in a variety of fun characters like Angry Birds, Spiderman and Barbie and each one has a fun flashing traffic signal design that flashes for 60 seconds. The kids can start brushing the top row of teeth first and when the red light comes on they will know it's time to push the button again and start brushing the bottom row of teeth. The lights encourage children to brush for the recommended 2 minutes.
My kids and nieces loved these toothbrushes. They loved the flashing lights and actually brushed until the green lights turned to yellow and finally to red signaling them to stop and begin brushing the next row.
These would make fun Halloween treats. I don't mind if my kids eat some candy if they brush their teeth really good after and these make them want to do it! You can find Firefly products at places like Walmart, Target and your local drug stores or you can purchase them online at places like Amazon.com.
