Silicone Finger Toothbrush - Whale
The world's first finger puppet toothbrush!
Such a clever idea, the brushies toothbrush can be used on babies as young as 4 weeks and is suitable right up to kids aged 4 years.
Starting early at 4 weeks can make brushing a familiar part of your baby?s everyday routine?so eat, bathe, Brushie, dress, sing, repeat! Children learn best through play?so get silly! The Brushies give you four hilarious characters to help you get your silly on!
My baby doesn?t even have teeth, why should we use the Brushies?
For too many families, brushing is a stressful time that?s either avoided altogether, or leaves everyone feeling like they were just in a pay-per-view cage match. Part of the problem is starting too late in the game, use a Brushie before your child?s teeth pop and your kiddo will learn to love fighting cavities right from the start. Brushing their gums helps stimulate blood flow, gets your baby used to a brushing routine, and helps prevent gum disease.
When & how should we brush?
To establish a healthy habit with your child, brush in the morning after breakfast and at night before bed. Sing a silly song or act out the Brushie characters to make it fun. Brush for at least 10 seconds on top and 10 seconds below to make those gums and chompers shine.
Can my toddler use a Brushie?
Once your child has teeth, they should transition to a bristle toothbrush. But if you?re having problems with your toddler and a brushing routine, the Brushies are great for helping start a new association with the power of play. Once you get into your new routine, you can switch back to a bristle toothbrush.

The Brushies, created for families by two doctor Mums - Their Story:
Once upon a time there was a family dentist named Hilary who day after day would treat TINY patients with BIG tooth problems, and even HER OWN children refused to brush.
But in a moment between her toddler and a finger puppet she had a flash of inspiration! She called her friend Colleen who happened to be a family psychologist with three kiddos of her own who somehow got her little ones to love brushing AND had a knack for transforming challenges!
Together they completely reimagined how brushing should be for children and their families and the result was the Brushies.
Start Early and make it FUN!
