When shopping for a children’s electric toothbrush, says Dr. Sweeney, DMD, “the biggest goal is to get your child into the habit of brushing and establish good health habits early.” Quip’s Kids Electric Toothbrush checks all the boxes with four bright, kid-friendly color options and timed sonic vibrations that teach kids how long to brush by helping them move through four different quadrants in the mouth during the timed two-minute session. Its soft bristles are surrounded by rubber massagers and operate with ultrasonic vibrations, which are designed to be gentle on delicate gums with loose and erupting teeth. In addition, it is one of the most affordable options on the market and is also environmentally friendly.
If you want something with smart features, you can always pay more for it ‘smart’ modelIt is compatible with the smartphone app. It does add an incentive to clean up regularly by letting kids earn rewards in the Quip app, but the upgrade costs about double the price.
What customers say:
Quip brush reviews for kids are mostly positive, averaging 4.5 out of 5 stars with more 17,500 reviews on Target. Customers say their kids 3+ enjoy using this to brush their teeth compared to others. Says one parent, “My child loves this electric toothbrush because it doesn’t beat it as hard as some other brands. It results in them brushing their teeth all the time!” It’s worth noting that quite a few customers found it difficult to switch subscriptions.
