Ratings and Reviews
Earlier this year,I got the sonic toothbrush for my husband, oldest son and myself and after using it and getting great results I purchased the SonicareKids for my youngest son that’s 5. He loves talking care of his “friend” everyday. Sometimes he will brush his teeth twice in one sitting just to see his character do something different. As with the other sonic toothbrushes, you have to clean them to get the excess toothpaste that runs down the handle and under the attachable head. That’s normal maintenance that was mentioned in the instructions under caring for your sonic toothbrush. One review reported that this toothbrush is a breeding ground for bacteria and it has the potential if you are not the cleaning behind the decorative face. I guess they did not read the instructions; however, to alleviate this issue,I didn’t install the clip, I just put the sticker on. Start your child out young to prevent dental problems in the future.
This app teaches how long to brush your teeth in a certain area... for instance a visual picture. After you are done with your brushing, you get a prize, sometimes it is clothing items or food, backgrounds or spray paint. For the first few days, I was really excited, then, as there were less and less rewards, I wasn’t excited to brush... I felt it was a waste of battery to go on my phone and use the app to brush my teeth. Especially in the morning and I am running late. Also as my food pantry got more and more full, I got annoyed because I have so much food that my sparkly won’t eat and almost every time I get food. I just feel like there should be a trash can... maybe make a blending machine. I was just expecting more when I started the app.
Great idea, execution not so much
At first, my daughter loved this, but the execution of this app is really flawed. There needs to be a lot more that is flexible. First of all, there is so much feedback here about the prizes. So much food. At first, it’s fun. My my child could not care less after the 400th time she’s gotten a food item when she’s only gotten spray paint like 5 times. Why not ADD MORE SPRAY PAINT?!?! She’s got 700 pairs of star glasses and kitty ears. This makes no sense. She can’t change her Sparkly, which she named “Purple” back to purple because we can’t get anymore purple spray paint. The process to give her credit for brushing when my phone isn’t at home with her and she can’t use the app is lengthy and a pain and should be easy. It’d be great if parents could pick a special reward to give the child or a prize they know they’d want, like the spray paint to help keep them motivated on days that brushing is a challenge. This app could be great if the developers would take some of this feedback and put it to work.
