This post is my entry to Nuffnang and Colgate's giveaway.
What I learned from my parents, I hope to pass on to my children. I want them to take good care of their teeth. When we were still in Saudi Arabia, we could afford to have our children go to their regular dental visits. Their dentist helped them maintain a healthy smile. She also taught them good dental habits, including how to properly brush their teeth and how to use dental floss.
Aside from the dental visits, I remember singing the song "This is the way I brush my teeth, brush my teeth .... early in the (morning)" when my kids are brushing their teeth. I really wanted them to learn proper dental care. Making tooth brushing fun for them is the first step towards their learning and keeping the habit.
I know that many kids don't brush their teeth. Why? Well, they could have different alibis -- from being lazy to postponing brushing their teeth until they forget to do so. It's sad that many parents aren't able to guide their children in taking good care of their teeth.
Having the right products plays a big role in making tooth brushing fun and enjoyable. Of course, you need to give them a good toothpaste with a flavor they love. And to complete the pair, you need to give them a toothbrush that suits their age and grabs their interest.
The good news for moms and dads out there is that Colgate has the products that could make tooth brushing for kids more exciting. It is Colgate’s Minions toothbrush and Minions toothpaste.
Kids will enjoy brushing their teeth using a toothbrush designed with a cartoon character they like. I know this is so because we bought our sons their Power Rangers toothbrushes when they were still small and they like using them to brush their teeth.
My daughters loved watching the Despicable Me movie and the Minions. Having these fancy characters on their Minion toothbrushes could encourage them to brush their teeth with extra excitement and consistency. Angel also like the bubble gum flavor of Colgate's Minions toothpaste. I was surprised to see her brushing her teeth twice the first time she tried it.
If you want to buy this set of Colgate’s Minions toothbrush and toothpaste to make brushing more fun, the product is available for purchase at Lazada. Just click the links below to check the price. As of this writing, the product is sold at a discount of 25%.
