Recently we received a package and you would have thought that it was Christmas or a birthday gift or something by the excitement that was pervading through our house. What was in this mystery box? Colgate Kids toothbrushes and toothpaste! Eco-Friendly and chemical sensitive readers will be happy to know that the last I checked, Colgate products were low on “chemical scale”, except for the fact that some of them do have dyes in them. I think it was Colgate regular mint that was really low.

Our children have had no complaints about the Colgate products we received. They all have loved using their new toothbrushes and toothpaste. Sometimes I think new toothbrushes are like a new box of crayons, you know what I mean? It’s new, its fun and exciting to open it up and use it right out of the package. Of course, they all liked the color, style and character they received. It worked out perfectly.
One of our sons has been somewhat of a reluctant brusher and the battery operated toothbrush really has made him motivated to brush when he needs too. He and his brother have been found brushing their teeth 2, 3 and 3 times a day now! My husband and I have agreed we don’t care if we’ll have to buy new batteries, it’s worth it just to have them wanting to brush their teeth and doing it well.
Our two year old loves his new toothpaste and toothbrush. He already calls himself a “big boy” and I think having his own toothpaste for the first time makes him feel even “bigger”. It’s so nice that the My First Toothpaste does not have any dyes or artificial flavors in it.
I even like my new toothbrush. It’s the Colgate Max White. It feels like it is getting a closer brush to my gumline and I think it’s the design of the bristles. Our girls are not hard to please at all. Our four year old loves her pink toothbrush and toothpaste! She’s truly a girly-girl! She loves princesses too!
Special thanks to our PR rep and Colgate for providing us with a generous supply of toothpaste and toothbrushes!
