    Default Electric toothbrushes for kids

    Which brand do you have for your kids? Are the $20 battery operated ones a waste of money? Is rechargeable better?

    Educate me

    Default Electric toothbrushes for kids

    I was thinking the same thing. DD hates brushing her teeth so thought an electric might be an incentive? Interested to hear what hubbers say.

    I buy the design your own brush with the stickers. DS has got much better with teeth brushing since i have been buying them. The battery last about 8wks for us but i generally like to buy him a new brush every 2mths. They are $10ish from woolies.

    My little one had a battery operated one but it needed a new brush head within about a month, and of course you can't by replacement brushes. I would look for one that is rechargeable so you can also replace the brush. Seems a waste to be throwing a $10 - $12 toothbrush out every month or so otherwise.

    They should be replaced every 3mths or after illness. I spend about $6 on a toothbrush just for myself and have no issues spending a little more on DS to encourage him to brush his teeth more.

    We all use the oral B ones as well, I decided to invest in them for the kids because I found the battery ones were a waste of money as they kept breaking!

    Same. They aren't cheap but when you are looking a $6 for a normal brush it's worth it. Mine is worth $200 lol

    I'm giving the cheap battery operated ones a go to see if she likes it first. The heads are quite different so this might deter her. Hopefully not. For anyone else doing the same, woollies have the character branded ones on sale for half price, so paid $5. I picked a Dora the explorer one up yesterday!
