Sometimes, children can get bored while brushing their teeth, and their boredom could often lead to quick brushing that would only last for less than a minute. The average time that a person should take to brush their teeth is two minutes, but kids who may have a short attention span would only brush for at least 30 seconds.
To keep children busy or distracted while using a toothbrush, several companies have added extra features on some of their products to entertain the kids and enable them to brush their teeth longer. One of these companies is Tooth Tunes, who has a line of toothbrushes that can play music as long as kids continue pressing the toothbrushes’ bristles to their teeth. Here are just some of the best Tooth Tunes toothbrushes that you can purchase online.
The first toothbrush we will be talking about is the Tooth Tunes Jr. Lion King edition, which can play the song “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” from the first Lion King movie. It is significantly smaller than most of the toothbrush on this list, making it a suitable toothbrush for toddlers or kids who are just learning how to brush their teeth by themselves.
The song can only play when the user pressed the bristles on their teeth, and its duration or playtime is exactly one minute. Parents would have to reset the toothbrush if they want their children to brush their teeth for two minutes. Some consider this edition of Tooth Tunes as a collector’s item, but there are still a few stores that are selling this toothbrush for a low price.
Next up is the Tooth Tunes Selena Gomez edition that plays the popular Selena Gomex and The Scene Song “Round & Round.” The toothbrush can play music for two minutes instead of one, and it has a slightly longer handle that is perfect for children five years old and above.
In order for it to play music, the Tooth Tunes toothbrushes use special vibrations that it sends through the user’s teeth, and the music will subsequently play like it is in his or her head. The user must first press the button in the middle of the toothbrush’s body and wait for a beep before he or she starts brushing.
Those who remember the girl group Cheetah Girls who were popular in the 2000s may want to get this special edition of the Tooth Tunes toothbrush for their children. This version of the Tooth Tunes has the song “The Party’s Just Begun” built-in that can play for up to 2 minutes.
The Cheetah Girls edition is presented with neon green at its head and a light blue accent in its white-colored body. At the front of its handle, it has an image of the members of the Cheetah Girls who appeared in the sequel film.
For children who are fans of Ashley Tisdale’s shows and movies that are seen on the Disney Channel, the Ashley Tisdale Tooth Tunes may be the most suitable toothbrush for them. The first edition of the Tooth Tunes Ashley Tisdale features the song “Be Good to Me,” which was released in 2006 from her debut album Headstrong.
Like most Tooth Tunes toothbrushes, this edition can play the song for two minutes, and it encourages children to brush their teeth longer in order to finish the song. In addition, its colorway is similar to the Cheetah Girls edition because it has neon green and blue accents.
This Tooth Tunes toothbrush is also an Ashley Tisdale edition, but instead of “Be Good to Me,” it plays the song “Kiss the Girl,” a cover of the classic song performed by Samuel Wright for the film Little Mermaid in 1989.
The song can play for two minutes, and its volume gets louder if the user presses the bristles harder on his or her teeth. Its body comes in two shades of purple with white accents at the neck and at the handle.
The Turbo Tooth Tunes toothbrush is an upgraded version of the regular Tooth Tunes, as it has an improved dental mandibular sound transmission that allows the brush to play music with better sound quality. For this edition of the Turbo Tooth Tunes, it has a built-in song from the popular Hannah Montana TV show, which is “We Got the Party.”
The toothbrush comes in a vibrant purple color with white accents, and it also features an image of Miley Cyrus playing as Hannah Montana for the TV series. Like the regular Tooth Tunes, this toothbrush can play the song for two minutes.
Another Turbo Tooth Tunes toothbrush, the HSM 2 edition has the song “All for One” that is played in one of the most iconic scenes in the sequel to High School Musical. Similar to the previously mentioned Hannah Montana edition, the HSM 2 version has an enhanced dental mandibular sound transmission technology that allows the toothbrush to play music without having any large speakers.
As opposed to purple, the High School Musical 2 edition comes in a bright blue color with white accents at the body and the neck, and it also has the name of the song written at the front of its handle.
Besides these seven toothbrushes, there are dozens more Tooth Tunes products to choose from. Make sure that you match the song that the toothbrush plays to the likes or interests of your son or daughter so that he or she will enjoy using the toothbrush more.
