Colgate Magik Toothbrush Review- Sugar Bug Fighting Toothbrush
Okay so this is going to be a quick post but I just had to share this cuteness with you all! This children’s toothbrush works with your smart phone or tablet as a sugar bug fighting game!
Check out this Colgate Magik toothbrush review and definitely check out the Colgate Magik toothbrush video my son did below!
Colgate Magik Toothbrush Review Video
Here is my son’s Colgate Magik toothbrush review video. You can see him brush and squash the sugar bugs. See him earn rewards and take fun photos. Such a cool way to make brushing fun and rewarding!
Sometimes Technology is a Good Thing
So before I get attacked, yes I know kids should be able to brush without technology…I get it…blah, blah..
BUT y’all this makes brushing FUN. Not only is it fun, it is educational.
Yes, I know that they shouldn’t have to be glued to a phone for every little thing..but hear me out. The Colgate Magik toothbrush teaches your child A LOT. It is so precise, that it probably teaches them better than you could. It has motion detectors that show exactly what spots on the teeth and gums are missed.
It shows the child EXACTLY the spots they missed while brushing and what areas they need to work on the most. Trust me, as a pediatric dental hygienist, kids miss a lot. This toothbrush game actually shows them how to brush and educates them on brushing every area in the mouth.
And trust me on this, anything you can do to make tooth-brushing more fun, do it. If a child is motivated as they are younger, those good tooth brushing habits will hopefully stick with them as they grow older.
Motivation is Key
The Colgate Magik toothbrush encourages better brushing by using a reward system on the app. The more often they brush and the better brushing job they do, the more points they get. The more points they get, they can unlock more worlds and more cool photo filters. My son loves getting new rewards and fun photo filters.
Makes Brushing Fun
My son just loves this game. It is so motivating and keeps him wanting to brush better and more often. The Colgate Magik toothbrush is a fun way to encourage better brushing while showing your children the areas they need to improve on.
My child laughs and giggles the entire time he plays the toothbrush game while he squashes all the sugar bugs. It is like a competition with himself each time to get more points and do a better brushing session.
I tested this myself and the sensors and motion detectors are spot on.
Check Your Child’s Progress
Parents can go back and check their child’s progress so they can see where their child needs improvement. I believe you should always help your child brush their teeth because at a young age. They just don’t have the dexterity or patience to do a great job every time while young. This app can help you be a little more hands off while still keeping up with them and making sure they are doing a good job.
Whoever came up with this app and brush is just PURE genius. I kinda feel like it is a secret parenting hack.
Shh…. don’t tell the kids how great and helpful this is. Now if only they could come up with a game to make them eat their veggies. Hmm.. next invention? I’m gonna need a cut of that lol.
Again, totally cool toothbrush game. Encouraging, motivating, fun and most importantly educational. The Colgate Magik toothbrush literally teaches your child to brush the best way possible. Hats off to the genius behind this cool device!
