Firefly Toothbrush Review and Giveaway

*CLOSED*
WINNER #17 Valerie CONGRATULATIONS!


I try very hard to instill good habits in my little girl Penelope when it comes to caring for her teeth. I know how important it is to your general health and I believe that teaching her at a young age will help her to continue to be conscious of this as she gets older. She is at that stage right now where she is wanting to do everything herself so I encourage her to brush on her own first and then I take over and make sure she didn't miss any spots. This has been working for us right now but I know that as she gets older she will want less of my help. So how do I make sure that she is brushing thoroughly? That's where FireFly toothbrushes come in. Invented by a father and daughter FireFly toothbrushes encourage children to brush longer. Dentists recommend that you brush your teeth for a total of two minutes but that can be hard for a kid to do on their own. As a parent I know that when I want my child to do something the best way is to make the activity fun. With just a tap on the bottom of the brush FireFly toothbrushes light up and flash for a total of 60 seconds. What a great way to get your child to brush for the recommended amount of time. One push for the top row and another for the bottom row of teeth. Your child will love watching her toothbrush light up while she is cleaning those pearly whites.

I was given the opportunity to review the Firefly Flashing Toothbrush for ages 2 to 4 years. When I first showed Penelope her new toothbrush and how it lit up it immediately caught her attention. Lately she has been really fascinated with flashlights and laser pointers so this was very cool. I showed her how to activate the blinking and she did have a little trouble at first until we found just the right spot to tap it. She had so much fun watching the light while she brushed and to tell her she could push it again once the minute was up, well that just made it even better. The last couple of days it seems all she can talk about is her new toothbrush. Don't you just live how excited children can get over the littlest things?

Each FireFly toothbrush is designed for 200 uses which reminds kids and parents to replace toothbrushes every 3 months as recommended by dentists. In addition to the style I was sent for review FireFly makes a few other styles to fit your child's age. They come in an assortment of translucent colors and FireFly has also aligned with top Licenses such as Spiderman, Barbie, Hot Wheels, Peanuts, Strawberry Shortcake, Tweetie Bird, Scooby Doo and Bratz. FireFly toothbrushes can be purchased at several stores nationwide including Target, Wal-Mart, Walgreens and Big Lots or online.

How would you like to win some FireFly toothbrushes? I have 3 toothbrushes in different colors to give away to one of our readers.
