Contest: FireFly makes proper brushing fun!

My own children are teens now, and they know how to brush their teeth properly (I hope!), but I have vivid memories of the days back when one or both of them seemed to believe that just waving the brush in the general vicinity of their mouths would be sufficient. Ahem.

So that’s where FireFly oral care products come in. Cool light-up toothbrushes in fun colors and popular character themes let your child know how long to brush (and when they’re nearly done), plus the accompanying fluoride foams are way more fun than regular ol’ toothpaste.

The nice folks at FireFly were kind enough to send me three Ready Go brushes and three accompanying fluoride foams. I have the Angry Birds set (pictured here) as well as a Spiderman set and a Barbie set. Three lucky Want Not readers are going to win what will hopefully become happy, compliant toothbrushing from even a reluctant brusher.

Want to win a FireFly set? Of course you do! First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 9:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 6:00 a.m. Pacific) on Saturday, May 25th, 2013 for an entry. Winners will be selected via my magical WordPress plugin picker thingie.

    Those look neat! And maybe my 10yo would actually get his teeth clean rather than sort of swiped? Lovely.

    I would love one of these for my daughter. I’m starting to hate nagging about brushing as much as she hates doing it!

    Brushing foam? Well, if it works, sign me up. Thanks, Mir.

    Sonia May 23, 2013 at 12:16 pm #

    We can always use a new tooth brush or fluoride foam… should I admit I have no idea what flouride foam is? Mouthwash, floss, paste…. Those things we have. Foam sounds interesting!
    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Oh man do I need these – the 4 yo does NOT like to brush (but loves Spiderman)!

    You’re pretty! And I would like my 10 yr old to keep some of his teeth as I’m going bankrupt orthodontically (yes, that is a real word. maybe. probably not.)

  27. 27
    Hope May 23, 2013 at 12:52 pm #

    I have these on my shopping list for this weekend, but I wouldn’t say no to winning a free set instead.

    We just found out my son has two cavities, so yeah, we could use a little toothbrushing help.

    I’m all for anything that might entice my children to brush their teeth.

    Jenny May 23, 2013 at 1:35 pm #

    OMG. I have this argument with my 10 year old EVERY. DAY. Walking around the house with the toothbrush IN your mouth is NOT the same as brushing. I think he’s get a kick out of the angry birds version! And maybe it would help!

  34. 34
    Laurin May 23, 2013 at 1:53 pm #

    My son would love either the Angry Birds or Spiderman set! Barbie? Not so much. :)

    Pick me!!! So we took my 5 year old to the dentist this week and now we have a dentist who is younger than me which is weird. He says, “How do you get her to brush? My four year old fights us and won’t do it.” REALLY??? You’re the dentist, sir!

    Gina May 23, 2013 at 3:32 pm #

    I am down with anything that gets my kids to brush their own teeth instead of my having to do it for them.

    cindy May 23, 2013 at 3:42 pm #

    I would love these! I was just arguing with my 7-year-old recently about buying one of the spinny toothbrushes for $6 vs. a regular toothbrush for $1. She seemed to think that she could take money out of her savings account to buy the cool spinny toothbrush. That child destroys toothbrushes! No way am I letting her waste her money on a $6 toothbrush that will last maaaaybe a month.

    My 9 year old daughter just got her first cavity! She gets so bored brushing she roams into the living room, bedroom, hallway well you get the idea. I NEED THE HELP!! Thanks Mir

    Jenn May 23, 2013 at 8:30 pm #

    This would be perfect for my son. He has autism and toothbrushing is one of his daily protests because of sensory issues. I bet he would do it for the Angry Birds though.

    Managed to get the night time brushing….well mostly. Hoping this will spur the morning brushing since his doctor, a higher authority than me, just told him it was true, he had to brush twice daily.

    I have two boys who would LOVE the Angry Birds toothbrush! I’ll pretty much do/buy anything that holds their interest long enough to get their teeth clean. Thanks!

  87. 87
    emily May 25, 2013 at 7:32 am #

    Maybe this would make my son brush for longer than 15 seconds. He seems to believe that that is adequate.

  88. 88
    chris May 25, 2013 at 8:57 am #

    I wonder if all it would take is angry birds to make my 6 year old brush longer?
