One of the things I find frustrating as a mom is the daily nagging I have to do to get my kids to brush their teeth. Oral health is important to me and I want my kids to understand how important for them to take good care of their own teeth by brushing at least twice per day. We’ve tried all sorts of things from automatic toothbrushes to specially flavored toothpastes. Sometimes that helps for a little while but nothing has helped quite as much as the Colgate MAGIK toothbrush!
The Colgate MAGIK Toothbrush turns brushing into a game using an app with augmented reality. It’s really cool! Kids can travel through an AR universe, defeat cavity monsters as they brush, unlock new worlds and win MAGIK Brushing Masks all while developing healthy brushing habits through the gamification.
The app is free but you need the special MAGIK toothbrush for it to work properly. The toothbrush also comes with a stand for your device so you can set it on the counter while you are brushing and have your hands free. I love that I can set up more than one profile on the app so that my girls can both use it. Another cool thing is that it offers feedback in the parental dashboard so that I can help my kids improve their brushing technique. The Magik Check Up provides a personalized mouth map to show where each child has brushed and where they missed.
Colgate MAGIK was designed for kids ages 5+. My girls are 9 and 11. I thought it might be a little too young for my 11 year old but she seems to be enjoying it! Both of my girls are now brushing their teeth on their own rather than needing multiple reminders. This actually takes a big load off of my shoulders because it’s one thing I don’t let slide. Typically I have to tell my kids over and over again to brush their teeth until they finally do it.
The MAGIK kit is sold on Shop.Colgate.com or Amazon.com and retails for $14.99. It includes a manual toothbrush, a smart toothbrush connector and a phone holder and the MAGIK app can be downloaded for free on all iOS and Android devices. For every kit purchased directly from Shop.Colgate.com, Colgate will donate a manual toothbrush to their ‘Bright Smiles, Bright Futures’ cause, which helps children around the world have access to quality dental care with a goal to give every child a healthy smile.
