Having given the Firefly Toothbrush a whirl in our bathroom for the last week or so, it really is a wonderful little device. It starts in very small
sizes–small enough for toddlers to hold and handle, and the brush head
size is just right. The gimmick is that a light flashes for a full minute to let kids know how
long to brush, flashing more quickly (“like a firefly Mommy, get
it?”) toward the end.
does come dressed up in the kind of licensed characters that will get a
lot of kids excited for brushing; think Spiderman, Superman, Strawberry
Shortcake (ironically) and my girls’ favorite, Hello Kitty. I could live without Barbie, but at least she’s not available in the 2-4 year size from what I can tell.
One more thing I like: You can replace the 2 AA batteries when they run out. I
just wish we could replace the brush heads too. Considering how much my kids
are (finally) using these, we might need it. –Liz
