As a first time mom, I figured brushing my toddler's teeth would be a breeze. I will make it fun, I told myself. I will whip up a little song and dance about our teeth and that will get the job done! ...I couldn't have been more wrong. Choosing the right toothbrush for your toddler will be trial and error (just like everything else at that stage), but these adorable toothbrushes are sure to be a favorite with any toddler!
The Baby Banana Brush was created by a grandmother after her two year old grandson was attempting to brush his own teeth with a traditional, hard plastic toothbrush. The toddler fell and punctured the roof of his mouth, missing his brain by just a few centimeters! As a result, she sought the expertise of several engineers who assisted her with the design and materials needed to make a fun, but flexible product. Thus, the Baby Banana Brush was born! Designed to be baby and toddler friendly, this training toothbrush is made from 100% medical grade silicone, which gives it the flexibility needed to provide a safe and enjoyable experience while toddlers learn the mechanics of brushing their teeth! Plus, you can even place them in the freezer to help soothe sore gums! On top of that, this is the perfect toothbrush for keeping those little gums nice and clean - no extra brushing required.
The EleFriend Bendable Toothbrush design is a fantastic toothbrush for toddlers over 2 years old! It has the feel of a traditional toothbrush with ADA recommended nylon bristles, but it is completely bendable and gentle on the mouth (ensuring that your child won't have the same experience the creator's grandson did!). The fun elephant design is a must have for any child!
