I got my kiddo a toothbrush that lights up for the length of time she needs to brush! I let her pick out her toothpaste, as well! We also brush our teeth together so she can see what to do!

Quoting bupkie:

We have the Oral-B toothbrushes with the built in timers... but the boys just seem to ignore them...


Hmmmmm  I betcha if there was a toothbrushing APP.... THEN we might have a solution!!!!

My kids have light up toothbrushes. They love to brush until the light stops blinking
