May 13, 2017

“I love brushing my teeth & want to spend more time doing it”
— said no kid ever.

The fact is between Minecraft, YouTube Kids and running around IRL, chomper cleaning falls way down any kid’s list of Fun Things to Do Today.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
What if you could make brushing teeth more fun than Roblox?
What if you could get them to take the time to do it properly?
What if they wanted to do it on their own without having to start WWIII?
Enter Philips Sonicare for Kids — a bluetooth-enabled electric toothbrush that will have your kids as obsessed with a shiny smile as they are with The Sims. Or that’s the plan anyway 😄

Philips Sonicare for Kids: Making Brushing Your Teeth Fun Since 2017

So, how does it work? Simple really: witchcraft.
Joking!
Based on the fool-proof “if you can’t beat them, join ‘em” philosophy, Philips Sonicare for Kids turns brushing teeth into a game. Download the app, fire up the brush and you have everything you need to get your smallfry playing the game of polishing their pearly whites. Let’s show you how…

How to Use Your Philips Sonicare for Kids

Step 1: Unbox the device & marvel at the awesome gender-neutral covers available to customise your brush. Quickly hide the stickers of the fluffy character Sparkly so you can use them as bribes rewards down the track.

Step 2: Search for “Sonicare” in the App store / Google Play and download the Philips Sonicare For Kids app onto your phone or tablet for nada. Sync the Philips Sonicare toothbrush to your phone & enter in your kids’ name.

Philips Sonicare for Kids Special Features

  • Two Kid-friendly Power Modes — with a 3-year-old and 9-year-old sharing the device using different heads, we had no complaints flipping with the two (appropriately gentle) power modes
  • KidPacer — wouldn’t this be handy when you’re trying to get them ready for school: fun sounds encourage kids to keep going the entire time to reach the dentist-recommended 2 minute time spent
  • KidTimer — OK, 2 min is a pretty big ask straight off the bat when you’re working with goldfish toddlers. The KidTimer slowly increases the brushing time over 90 days until you hit the 2 minute milestone

What You’ll Love About the Philips Sonicare for Kids

Honestly, what’s not to love about less hassle for parents more fun for kids! At our place, my girls were totally down with gentle feel of the brush on their teeth (other electric toothbrushes feel like sandpaper, apparently) and they both loved tapping to receive prizes from Sparkly in the app.

Oh and those extra stickers? They came in handy when it came time to bribe encourage them to clean their room too. Win.

Take four kids, a room of pillows, cartons of Rice Bubbles and what do you get? An epic Kellogg’s Movie Night slumber party! This month Kellogg’s is bringing families together beyond the breakfast table thanks to the Kellogg’s Family Movie Night Giveaway. The best part? Mums don’t have to do a thing: simply grab three specially marked packs of Kellogg’s cereal (Rice Bubbles, Corn Flakes & Sustain are faves in our place) then use the codes inside to download killer kids flicks from Google Play movies — for nada. Choose from a bunch of animated faves like Puss in Boots, Rio & Madagascar, or classic smash hits like Marley & Me and Romeo & Juliet. Let the snoozing good times begin!

To celebrate, I thought I’d throw a little slumber party of my own with my little sister Eden and our neighbours Hutch and Willis. It was extra nice when little Milo and his mum, Katrina (@coolbananasblog) who came along with sleepover-ready treats including Rice Bubble slice, Corn Flake Clusters and strawberry milk. (Oh, and a few Froot Loop necklaces, for a midnight snack!)

For me, with little ones, downloading movies from Google Play is totally awesome: no need to collect a DVD or return it. Instead, downloading a full-length movie at home to your phone or iPad is super easy. Then it’s always on the phone or iPad, ready to go in the car or cafe. Too easy!
