Review: Spinbrush By Arm & Hammer | Kid’s Electric Toothbrush

REVIEWS | | November 29, 2009 at 12:22 am

Timing in blogging is sometimes a little weird. My kids normally use the Colgate electric toothbrush (more for the Dora picture on it) but recently the battery ran out and on a Halloween trick or treat a house gave out (manual) toothbrushes (the dad was a dentist but seriously how cool is that?). The fact that there were Dora brushes meant both my kids forgot about all the candy they collected. Anyway I had been back and forth about getting another electric toothbrush since I had no faith in how well my kids were brushing their teeth.

Even though they were brushing twice a day I knew that the electric brush would be much more effective, especially since I use an electric brush myself. On days that I travel and use a manual brush, it feel like icky fur in my mouth. I always used to think it was a lazy person to use an electric brush until I started.  I began to wonder how worse my kid’s mouth would feel since they eat much more sweeter stuff than me and are less likely to mind the icky feeling. I needed no convincing that an electric brush was better, but which one?

When I was approached to test drive (or rather have my kids test drive) the new Arm and Hammer Kid’s Spinbrush I was game to try it. I had recently seen the advertisement on television and was interested. We received the Dolphin and the Butterfly design to review so I cannot vouch for the other designs.  After my 2 and 4 year old daughters tried it out, here is what I found:

Pros

  • Beats a manual toothbrush, hands down.
  • I had the more expensive brand for the kids and from look of the brush they looked the same.
  • Nice to designs that include non (commercial) character designs.
  • Motor is quiet enough it does not scare the kids.
  • Batteries are removed by unscrewing the screw, so kids cannot mistakenly (or purposely) remove it.
  • The designs really are fresh and the the 3D feel and look is really neat.
  • They have a wide range for ages 3+
  • They are truly more affordable (all under $7)

Cons

  • The butterfly toothbrush switch is much more difficult to switch on or off (even for me).
  • Although the switch on the butterfly spinbrush was a 3D plastic, the rest of the design on the same brush was a sticker stuck to it. Although it seemed to withstand the water for now, I doubt it would look so great a month or so later as it becomes porous.
  • I really wish on kid’s brushes the switches were more pulse like so battery would not get wasted. Just a note that this was a feature that was on other electric brushes too and was not specific just to this brand. Would be a wonderful feature to only have it work when the kid holds the button down.

    Further studies have revealed that this combination, the HCG hormone
    and a low caloric intake, does produce significant weight loss results.
    An individual on an HCG diet is able to lose nearly
    1 pound a day. For that reason, Noetic science is a multi-disciplinary field that
    brings objective scientific equipment and methods with each other with very subjective inner
    realizing to study the full range of human being
    experiences. Although it is utterly proven to help people shed unwanted
    weight, it’s safety is also being debated amongst both medical practitioners and users alike.

    By injecting it directly into your muscle tissue, HCG can break down your fatty tissue into energy.
    With so many diet options available to consumers it can often times
    be quite difficult for would-be dieters to determine which option is the best for
    them. Therefore, you should immediately stop taking
    the hormone when you are pregnant. Excess weight from unrelenting
    stress settles primarily inside the abdomen and literally poisons your body, increases inflammation, depletes immunities, impairs concentration and leaves you with a
    raging appetite. But on the other hand, in dry wines most
    of this sugar has been fermented away so from the weight point of view dry
    wines are better than sweet wines.
