Colgate Kids Review

Today marked the consumption of the kids last piece of Halloween candy. With every piece they ate I couldn't shake the thought of what all that sugar was doing to their teeth. Fortunately we got a nice surprise just when we needed it most. A great package of Colgate Kids Toothbrushes and paste.

It really was great timing. My kids were super excited about their new toothbrushes and paste. Colgate kids age appropriate lines give kids something to really be excited about. As most Moms know when something is fun kids don't mind doing it. So we like that Colgate makes brushing fun and exciting with their kids line.

I also like that they are grouped into ages. It's hard to find the correct brush size for little and growing mouths. Colgate lets you know on each kids tooth brushes what ages they are about right for. They made for a great match to each of my four kids mouths.

We received a few products from the Colgate Licensed Kids (Recommended Ages 2-8) line. 
My 3 year old and 5 year old got a Dora and SpongeBob manual brush and matching Anti-Cavity Fluoride Toothpaste in a great bubble gum flavor. The toothbrush features a non-slip cushioned handle fit for small fingers, and an oval shaped head to protect children’s sensitive gums. While the toothpaste features clinically- proven cavity protection that strengthens and protects developing teeth.
My five year old refuses to use anything but bubble gum or vanilla flavored tooth paste so this was perfect. The head size on his toothbrush was also great. I had been struggling between brushes that were to small and ones that were to big.

My 8 year old got a Colgate Licensed battery operated SpongeBob Toothbrush which he of course loved and even brushed for a full two minutes with..WooHoo... This toothbrush features a small rotating head to gently brush away plaque while the multi-height bristles easily clean hard-to-reach areas.
My 10 year old got a nice adult toothbrush, and with all those big guy teeth almost in he was certainly ready for the switch. They have been sharing the
Colgate Kids 2in1 Anti-Cavity Fluoride Toothpaste in Strawberry and I have yet to hear a complaint. This 2in1 toothpaste and mouthwash not only protects against cavities while fighting bad breath, but also comes in two fun and tasty flavors –watermelon and strawberry – to encourage even the pickiest kids to brush. Recommended for children 8-12
The great thing is after a week of eating junk I haven't had to nag them once about brushing!
