After the Candy: Colgate Review and Giveaway

kids toothbrush With Halloween just a little over a week away, my two girls are already having candy dreams!  They absolutely cannot wait to go trick or treating and dive into the treats they receive.  As a Mom, I am perfectly fine with indulging them on Halloween, but I have to set limits and be aware of any potential consequences.  One thing we make sure to do when Halloween night is over:  brush, brush and brush some more!

Halloween night is a perfect opportunity to teach your kids about proper brushing habits, so why not make it fun?  One thing you can do for your kids is to buy them a new toothbrush and toothpaste for Halloween night!  The Colgate Kids portfolio has a ton of options that will make brushing something your kids will look forward to!  From the press release, the portfolio includes:

  • Dora the Explorer, Spongebob and Bakugan brushes and paste – Reinforcing strong oral care habits is a breeze with the help of kids favorite characters.
  • Pop Stars 2in1 toothpaste for Tweens – This mild mint flavored toothpaste features star breath strips that dissolve inside the mouth for long lasting cool, fresh breath.
  • My First Colgate toothbrush and toothpaste for a toddler’s first Halloween – it’s never too young to start developing good oral care habits. My First Colgate toothpaste contains no artificial colors or preservatives, so parents can feel confident about the ingredients.

Photobucket My five year old received a pink princess toothbrush and the Pop Stars toothpaste.  Saying that she went NUTS for the toothpaste is an understatement!  She was fascinated with the breath strips in the paste and continually asks to brush her teeth to see how many stars land on her toothbrush.  My two year old did not miss out on the action as she received a purple Dora the Explorer toothbrush and My First Colgate toothpaste.  She is just now learning the proper brushing habits.  I do allow her to brush her own teeth first and then I “finish up” by making sure no spots were missed.  If you are looking for other great tips for teaching your child about dental hygiene, check out the For Parents on Colgate’s site!
