Aquafresh Brush Time App

Getting children to clean their teeth can be a real chore, so many children really dislike it and it can become a real battle yet we know how important it is. The Aquafresh Brush Time App is there to help parents and children to make toothbrushing fun.

The app features Captain Aquafresh and the Nurdles who entertain with catchy songs and dances as well as a tutorial demonstrating the correct way to brush. The timer counts down from the recommended 2 minutes brush time so they know when times up.

Children can even customise their brushing routine as they can choose from various characters, dances and even link up a playlist to provide variety and keep things interesting. The more brushing they do the more content they can unlock.

Of my two boys I have one who is a reluctant brusher. Sebastian is 5 and has never been keen and although he is getting better with age, he would get away with a 10 second brush if he could. I have never really thought about using an app before. I wanted to see if the app would keep his interest for a bit longer as well as show him the right way to clean his teeth in a fun way. 

We downloaded the app which is available for FREE on both the App Store and Google Play and gave it a go while using some Aquafresh Little Teeth toothpaste. Needless to say the boys loved the app and I had no issues keeping Sebastian brushing for the full two minutes. I really like that they are shown the correct way to brush, with Sebastian wanting to be more independent it is good to know he knows how to clean his teeth the correct way. We will definitely be using the app reguarly to keep teeth cleaning fun and I will humming away to myself as the music is ridiculously catchy!

Alongside the app we used Aquafresh Little Teeth toothpaste. The Aquafresh kids toothpaste range has been developed with dental experts to give a helping hand at each stage of children's development. My eldest children are 3 and 5 and currently use Little Teeth; with a child friendly mild flavour and sugar acid protection Little Teeth is available in retailers nationwide with an RRP of £1.55
