How long does it take you to brush your teeth? Be honest now. Most people I have asked have said they spend around 3 minutes brushing their teeth but the reality was more like 30 seconds. I timed myself, keeping in mind that I knew the recommended time was 2 minutes, and I was astonished to find that 45 seconds in I was alarmingly bored of brushing.
With this in mind, we challenged our 9yr old son, William, to test out the new PlayBrush. Day 1, without the PlayBrush interaction, we set a timer for 2 minutes, and yes, William was whinging, I have to say waiting for the alarm to go off was similar to waiting for the kettle to boil. Day 2, we hooked up to the game on the iPad and 2 minutes just flew, in fact, he felt the urge to brush his teeth more than twice that day and we didn’t have to fight or negotiate.
I must confess, I tried it myself and found I brushed my teeth for longer than I usually do, so, all in all, it was a winner at Entertain The Kids headquarters. Don’t panic though, we tested the PlayBrush Smart not the PlayBrush Sonic, so we just switched the device across our own Tooth Brushes.
Although it may appear a little expensive, if you opt for the PlayBrush Smart, you can share it amongst your children with their own tooth brushes. A little charging device connects via a USB port and a full charge will last several brushes, I can’t say exactly how many because the novelty factor got the better of us and we kept playing with it.
