Sugar is a menace, and the last thing you want is a child growing up with more gaps than teeth. WoodieHoo Brushing Teeth to the rescue: it’s a dental hygiene app that teaches your child the importance of brushing after eating, and ensures they are brushing for long enough.
To start, try your hand at a game. Pick a mascot, from a cheeky cat, a mischievous fox, a sleepy rabbit and a jubilant pup in a beanie hat.
Tap the animal to start feeding them and before you know it, their teeth will be covered in leftovers.
The only way to help is to brush vigorously until their gleaming white smile is returned. Next your child is invited to brush alongside their animal mascot, while a watchful bird sits balefully atop a clock that slowly counts down until tooth-brushing time is over.
A jaunty theme tune trills in the background, and every so often, a team of supportive ladybirds will pop up to say hello and offer their wise words.
In no time at all, these animal instructors will have taught your child an invaluable lesson in oral hygiene. All that’s left is an even harder challenge – getting them to floss (not the dance move).
