Get Your Kids into Brushing Teeth with Twooth Timer

My son has always been into brushing his teeth. He hasn’t always been the most efficient, but he has at least always ran to the sink when I’ve said it is time to brush his teeth. I remember his dentist saying that I should do it for him til he was at least 2 and continue to monitor him til he was at least 3. It didn’t take long for him to get the hang of brushing his teeth – brush the top, the bottom, on the inside and his tongue. But what seems hard for him to grasp is just how long he should brush. I can understand that for him 2 minutes seems like an eternity when he has so many fun and important things to do!

The Twooth Timer is an inventive timer that kids turn on themselves and that will time the 2 minutes for them. Shaped like a twooth, you screw the top part and the timer starts. At about 20 seconds left, the timer sounds letting you know to finish up! The timer gets my son giving his teeth a final scrub everywhere, making sure he hasn’t missed anywhere. He now proclaims that he has done a “good job” because he feels assured that he has brushed as much as he was supposed to, for as long as he was supposed to. And for me I feel good knowing that he has brushed the dentist recommended amount of time.

The Twooth Timer is easy to use, requires NO batteries to operate and helps improve your child’s dental hygiene habits overall.

Designed by a mother and recommended by dentists and hygienists, their are many products to choose from at to form your child’s educational dental care kit.

The Twooth Timer makes a great stocking stuffer for any child.

Twooth Pocket Pal

Part of the Twooth Time family, the Twooth Pocket Pal makes losing teeth fun. My wee dude has been talking about losing teeth for months with his kindergarten friends. He’s a bit panicked about the whole thing, partly because we *may* have told him his teeth would fall out if he didn’t take care of them. Ok, so scare tactics are probably not the best way to instill good habits, but we didn’t use this often. As I said before he actually likes brushing his teeth, but sometimes that little threat just escaped my lips if he was fooling around and wouldn’t come brush his teeth. It’s not a complete lie right?

I know my son is not the only child that has anxiety about losing his teeth. They spend 4-5 years taking care of strong white teeth only to start losing them! What the what? Hence why we as parents introduced the Tooth Fairy to ease the fear. The Twooth Pocket Pal add a little comfort to a potentially stressful and confusing experience. A 13” cuddly tooth, he comes with a little pocket to store the lost tooth in. The pocket makes sure the tooth doesn’t go AWOL overnight and also gives a place for parents to place a gift (coins? Dollar bills?). He’s soft, smiley and a reminder to brush and floss before bed. I’m sure my wee dude will love him when he loses his first tooth!

    My son hasn’t started losing teeth yet (he’s 3), but we will have the tooth fairy visit when he does. I’m not sure how much to leave. Maybe $1?

    My son has only lost one tooth so far, and I gave $5 for the first one. I’ll probably do $2 or so for the rest.

    This is so cool!

    My oldest is four and he hasn’t lost any teeth, but he’s sure the Tooth Fairy is real, just from watching TV. :)

    My Grandchildren are too young for the tooth fairy. But 20 years ago my daughter got $1.00a tooth, so I can imagine what they get now.

    The tooth fairy visits my niece. Not too much money, though.

    The Tooth Fairy comes to our house often. My daughter has very poor enamel which led to her having her teeth pulled. So if it’s a pulled tooth she gets $10, if it falls out on it’s own she gets $5.

    I have 2 daughters a 4 year old and an almost 2 year old. Up til now, my 4 year old has moods when she doesn’t want to brush her teeth and a lot of times she brushes so quickly that I let her do it again. I agree that they find a lot of things more fun to do. My 2 year old shuts her mouth after a few seconds of me brushing her teeth. This is a great product and would love to win it for them. :)
