How to Make Tooth Brushing Fun for Toddlers: Introducing the Baby Blu Toothbrush

We all know that teaching our kids how to take care of their oral health is as

fundamental as teaching them to eat healthy and exercise regularly. And as the health link between the mouth and the body becomes ever more clear — research suggests that oral health could be a factor in the development of heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and more — tooth brushing has jumped to the top of the list of the most important health habits to emphasize.

None of this matters one bit to toddlers, of course, which is why it can feel next to impossible to get kids to regularly brush and floss. This is why we’ve added something new and exciting to the GO SMILE lineup — a fun and interactive toothbrush for kids! This is one brilliant device that can help you improve your child’s dental health — and, in turn, their overall health — and make your bedtime routine actually fun and genuinely painless. 

Meet Pepper the Panda, your child’s new tooth-brushing bestie! This kid-friendly toothbrush is appropriate for kids ages 2-7.

Here are some of the ways you can use Baby Blu to make tooth brushing more exciting for kids.

  • Sing as You Scrub — Singing and listening to music during any activity increases positive associations for youngsters while simultaneously boosting their mood and improving their sensory development. Our product engineers put this concept to good use with the Baby Blu toothbrush by having Pepper sing your child’s favorite tune while they brush their way to great oral health. 
  • Record a Fun Message — Another amazing thing about the Baby Blu is that it actually allows you to record your own music or messaging to help make the experience more fun and light-hearted. If bedtime is handled by one parent, you may want to record the other parent giving words of encouragement or singing a special song. You could also have a grandparent or sibling record a sweet message that will instantly make your little one want to brush. A message from your child’s favorite show or character would work, too!
  • Time It Just Right — Timing is everything, they say. And this is definitely true when it comes to kids and teeth. Choose a kids’ toothbrush that features a built-in timer — preferably one that sings a song or lights up in a fun way for the duration of the recommended brushing time. This will also help kids get an idea of how long they should be brushing and forge independent habits later on.

  • Keep It Safe — With a kid-friendly toothbrush and some fun luxury toothpaste, you can make brush time even more exciting while keeping it safe and effective. The Baby Blu Sonic Toothbrush offers 800 RPN of gentle yet thorough spinning power to deep-clean toddler teeth without worry. This toothbrush also comes equipped with red and blue light technologies to increase circulation and kill oral bacteria that can cause various problems throughout the body.
  • Make It Kid-Friendly — Sadly, kids probably won’t get too excited about the most exciting new dental health products in the teeth aisle at the grocery store. But they undoubtedly get excited about the latest additions to the toy aisle. The solution? Make your dental health products look like toys! You should also use smaller, kid-sized products that are easy for little ones to grip and made to fit into small, growing mouths.  
  • Keep It Fun — At the end of the day, the best approach to getting kids to adopt healthy habits and do things they don’t necessarily want to do is to encourage positive associations. When little ones see the fun look of Pepper the Panda and hear their favorite songs, they’ll think of the brushing routine as something to look forward to rather than dread, and that’s an association they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
