Phillips Sonicare for Kids toothbrush with app shown on tablet
Reading Time: < 1 minute

Have you ever had a war with your child over brushing their teeth? It can be the most challenging part of the morning or bedtime routine. We recently got a Philips Sonicare for Kids toothbrush which has been fantastic. The toothbrush itself is great. It is sonic so it works more effectively than a regular brush, but what makes it amazing is the app!

Phillips has created an app that syncs with the toothbrush via Bluetooth. The app shows an image of the mouth while your child is brushing to help ensure they got every tooth and brushed for the entire 2 minutes. The best part is the character they included in the app. The “Sparkly” is a cute little fur-ball that gets presents every time your child brushes. He gets clothing, backgrounds, colours and snacks (which he will turn down if you just brushed his teeth). It brings me back to the days of the Tamagotchi and feeling invested on keeping the digital pet happy and healthy.

If the sonic toothbrush is out of your budget you can still download the free app on your phone and have a great timer and incentive to get your child brushing!

A Wild Adventure

My family and I had the pleasure of visiting WildPlay on Monday. I have to admit the experience was beyond wild - it was absolutely exhilarating! I'm a little bit of an adrenaline junky. I've been paragliding, skydiving, cliff jumping, and the experience at WildPlay was thrilling. Let me tell you why...
