Colgate Talking Toothbrushes: Great for Back to School

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



We have definitely had some challenges with my youngest son's teeth. I don't know if it was because we had well water in Michigan or not, but he was the only child out of four to get cavities as a child (and he did brush and floss regularly). In fact, he had to have oral surgery when we moved, and though it was a bit intimidating at the time, it turned out to be a huge blessing. His teeth are now in perfect condition and the challenges he had are no more. That being said, because of the ordeal he went through, he does appreciate the importance of taking extra good care when it comes time to caring for his teeth. Colgate has new Brush Coach toothbrushes that help, and they make oral hygiene fun.




Every parent knows that getting your kids to brush their teeth (and brush them well!) can be a hassle, but Colgate just made “brush-time” easier. The new toothbrush makes oral hygiene fun, teaching your child to be a better brusher with help from their favorite character’s voices. The toothbrush is available with either a Minions or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle theme and features:

  • Brush Coach- Characters coach your child through two minutes of brushing and congratulate them when finished
  • Quadrant Timer- Characters tell your child when to move to and brush each quadrant of their mouth (Top Left, Top Right, Bottom Left, Bottom Right)
  • 2 Minute Timer- Characters inform your child when 2 minutes of brushing is up and congratulate them on a job well done. Dentists recommend brushing your teeth for 2 minutes.

My son has been asking me to brush at the same time he does these days, so we can switch quadrants at the same time, lol. It's a silly way to bond, but we're all about silly in this house. ;) I love that these toothbrushes go the extra mile to make brush time awesome. Taking care of those teeth is of highest importance. Whether you have a child who likes to brush, or one who needs a little encouragement, the toothbrushes from this Colgate line are going to be a big hit. Stock up and buy them for gifts. We did! Available in major retail stores.

  1. haha adding a little extra fun is a win. Good his teeth are now normal as can be, no fun with crummy cavities and such.

  2. We have well water too, and I dentist insists on a fluoride rinse daily, which we do, and so far, only Mariah has had a microscopic cavity. These toothbrushes look like a lot of fun and a great way to encourage healthy oral hygiene.

  3. This is cute. We used to threaten our kids with the punishment of not being allowed to brush their teeth when they misbehaved. As a result, we never had trouble getting them to brush their teeth.

  8. The new Brush Coach toothbrushes do sound great to help kids with their oral health. We have similar toothbrushes that have a two minute timer.
