REVIEW: PHILIPS SONICARE TOOTHBRUSH FOR KIDS
Ahead of Oral Health Day, the lovely ladies at Philips sent my son a Philips Sonicare Toothbrush. It was during school holidays so it was delivered directly to him at his granny’s house. I immediately received a video call expressing his excitement to have received the toothbrush.
He initially loved the beautiful box and blue and white design. He then loved the fact that in the box were stickers that came with fun interchangeable K3 stickers for customization of his toothbrush. And of course, he loved that his new toothbrush was electric.
The Philips Sonicare for Kids is an electric power toothbrush for kids aged 4 and older. It offers maximum plaque removal, sonic technology, customizable stickers and educational tools to help make proper brushing fun.
Why is it so amazing? If the above hasn’t explained this, then let me tell you more about the specs.
2 brush head sizes available
This Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush has two brush head sizes that are specifically designed to gently clean and protect teeth as they grow
Kid timer helps to increase brushing time
To help kids ease into a proper routine, this electric toothbrush slowly increases the brushing time over 90 days until reaching the dentist-recommended 2 minutes to help instill healthy habits naturally.
2 kid-friendly power modes deliver a gentle, effective clean
With two kid-friendly power modes, this power toothbrush provides proper cleaning for different ages; a low mode for younger children and high mode for older kids.
Multi grip design
It is ergonomically designed to help kids brush properly on their own.
Sonicare dynamic cleaning action drives fluid between teeth
The toothbrush features a unique dynamic action that gently and effectively reaches deep between teeth and along the gumline.
Rubberized brush head is designed to protect young teeth
The rubberized brush head of this electric toothbrush is designed to help protect growing teeth.
It has a sturdy handle design that allows kids to store upright as well as apply toothpaste while the toothbrush is laying flat.
I’m excited about my boy’s oral health since receiving this toothbrush as it’s said to remove up to 75% more plaque than manual toothbrushes. And I have already seen the difference in his teeth, which are whiter already. Thanks, Philips!
My issue with electronic products is the battery life, and I’m happy that the Sonicare battery lasts for up to three weeks. Mpilo has only had to charge it once since he received the toothbrush – which is great. The Philips Sonicare toothbrush for kids retails for about R460 on Takealot. Moms can also purchase the brushing heads for just under R200.
