The Moo Reviews | Philips Sonicare for Kids

To recognise World Oral Health Day on 20th March, Moo is branching out and reviewing Philips’ Sonicare for Kids rechargeable electric toothbrush…and running her first giveaway for kids! You could win one of these amazing toothbrushes worth R899 (available at Dischem, Clicks and selected dentists and pharmacies) by entering at the bottom of this post.


We have had a long-term struggle around brushing, and anyone with a young child might identify. We’ve tried various brushes and toothpastes with limited success. So here is what Moo thought of the Philips Sonicare for Kids.

Did you like brushing your teeth before?

No. But now I like brushing my teeth. 

What didn’t you like before?

My old toothbrush was very boring and rottenish.

What did you like the most about this toothbrush? What are your favourite things?

It comes with stickers and it plays tunes. My other toothbrush never played tunes. And it tickles my teeth. *The Sonicare comes with a one minute or two minute cycle and plays a tune to show kids when to change areas as well as a special tune when the cycle is finished. It also comes with a variety of stickers so kids can customize their toothbrush. These little things really count with kids!

Do you think brushing your teeth is more fun now, and do you want to brush your teeth more often?

It is more easier because it brushes my teeth for me. And it is funner.


The results…

Along with the Philips Sonicare for Kids we received some Sunstar GUM plaque disclosing tablets. These are just amazing for showing your kids the invisible plaque on their teeth and helping them to see where to brush. The first photo was taken after brushing with a regular toothbrush. The second was taken after using the Philips Sonicare for Kids. You can see that before she was basically only brushing her front two teeth properly! The best thing was being able to show her how much plaque was lurking before she brushed (sadly…or luckily for you…I didn’t get a photo of that).


Top Tips from a Mom…

With the Easter bunny coming soon here are some basic tips for keeping the cavities away. I’m trying not to judge those moms who choose not to give their children sweets, but I think banning chocolate is…well…just plain mean. It makes me think of poor little Willy Wonka as a child, and frankly he turned out a bit mad from lack of chocolate. A tip is to get your child to drink some water after eating chocolate, which provide a bit of a rinse until brushing time. Older children can rinse with an alcohol-free mouthwash. Then of course don’t let them skip brushing! Find a toothpaste which your child likes, it will make them a lot more eager to brush. An electric toothbrush is more effective at removing plaque and also easier for a child to use. Find one with a built-in timer which will train your child to brush for the recommended two minutes. Make sure you take your child for dental check-ups every year. If the dentist terrifies them, look for a paediatric dentist or one who is geared towards children and will make it fun and non-threatening for them.

    I would really like my daughter to have one of these toothbrushes as I worry about her not brushing her teeth properly. She doesn’t mind brushing them & this has never really been an issue (I thank my lucky stars daily), I am just not sure how well she is doing it. I think one of these toothbrushes will make all the difference.

    Hi! Loved your article and can totally relate:) Sophia is about the same age as Moo and has pretty much the same feelings about brushing her teeth, haha.
    We use already for several years electric toothbrushes as I find the teeth feel much cleaner and specially for small kids to handle much easier. Both mine and Sophias electrical broke last year. I always wanted to try a sonic toothbrush for a change so I bought the Sonicare Diamond Clean and love it! Currently Sophia and I are sharing this toothbrush (obviously with different brush heads) But she would love to have her own toothbrush again and of the same brand but better (just say stickers and music;)) would be just awesome:)

    I LOVE Moo’s reviews ! ”Rottenish”haha! My little Abigail will be 3 in a few days, and every day is a struggle, I have to beg and bribe her to brush her teeth. Sometimes I can’t believe a little mouth can smell so bad. Hahaha

    OMW a toothbrush that plays tunes! When I was an au pair the kids had ones that played tunes and it made tooth brushing so much easier and a fun way to get the timing right. Back here in SA I was disappointed not to find them and two little boys really dislike brushing their teeth. A toothbrush that plays tunes is music to my ears 🙂

    Mila turned 4 a month ago and already there are more different tooth brushes and paste in her bathroom than in me and her dad’s bathroom. Getting her to brush her teeth is such a battle! She has a complaint for every flavour / colour / design. Decorating her own toothbrush would be such a motivation for her to brush more and complain less and the music would make it fun! This Philips Sonicare for Kids just sounds perfect.

  9. Sarah says:

    Paige likes for me to do everything for her … including brushing her teeth … so this can do it for me. I have an electric toothbrush and I know she would love one too, just like mommy. Shared on Twitter @themommycity

    i am about to have surgery & then I am getting adult braces fitted – all thanks to losing ‘rottenish’ teeh a few years ago! Because if this, I am determined to teach my kids all about taking care of their teeth – this would be amazing!!

    Looks like the perfect way to put the fun back in oral hygiene for my preschooler.. *giggle*! He used to brush those little pearly whites for ages, and I would have to wrestle him to get the toothbrush back, but these days he can’t race through it fast enough.
