Product Review: Tooth Tunes SpinBrush by Arm & Hammer

By Richie Ann Ashcraft

This one needs just a few quick bits of back story:

A) I just spent a small fortune fixing cavities inside all three of my boys' heads. So, I've been harping on them quite a bit about brushing their teeth and laying off the candy. Then, they hubby and I got new SonicCare brushes for Christmas, which made the boys jealous. They wanted new toothbrushes too.

B) We got Apple TV a few months ago. It's made us watch WAY too much TV, brought commercials into the house, and introduced the boys to music videos. Whenever we're bored, we watch music videos. Soren likes parodies where they work in the word "Minecraft," Jonas likes old school Beastie Boys, and Marek has fallen in love with "What does the fox say?" and anything by Katy Perry or One Direction. In particular, when "What Makes You Beautiful" comes on, he has what I've dubbed a "Pop Seizure." His mouth gapes, his hands stretch across his belly sort of like air guitar, and then he kind of convulses likes he's going to barf. This is dancing. We listen to One Direction nearly every single day.

These two seemingly unrelated stories came together yesterday when we went toothbrush shopping. Marek nearly peed his pants when he found this:

It's a SpinBrush that plays "What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction while you brush your teeth. The song plays for two minutes, the recommended time for brushing, then says "oh yeah" and shuts off. It's not that loud until you put it in your mouth, then you can hear it perfectly. According to Arm & Hammer's website, it's called Music In Your Mouth technology.

All three boys chose the same brush because they didn't know any of the other songs. There are a wide variety to choose, from Big Time Rush to Queen.

They all ran upstairs, turned on their brushes, and danced (seizured) to their favorite boy band.

I'm pretty sure this product is aimed at a different audience, maybe 10-12-year-old girls? Nonetheless, The Tooth Tunes SpinBrush is a huge hit (no pun intended) in our house!

I did some research once to figure out why some people get cavities and some don’t, since my youngest kid, who never brushed his teeth or flossed any more regularly than the other two, never had a single cavity growing up, while the other two had a mouthful. Turns out, some spit is better at protecting teeth from decay than others. My now-21-year old just went to the dentist today for the first time in 3 years - still no cavities!

Everyone knows that sometimes children can be very stubborn when it comes to brushing their teeth, but things are about to change with this singing toothbrush. To learn more about oral hygiene, you should check out the newport news family dentist resource, along with your children. The sooner they understand the importance of tooth brushing, the better.
