Bonjour lecteurs! Baba loves photos. He is always happy to pose for the camera. But his new bad habit is to chew his the toothpaste and not brush his teeth properly. It’s a bit of a disappointment as he has always been interested before and we had a good routine. I was actually proud to have nailed this one… But lately, brushing his teeth has been a mission and I often had to do it myself! So when Playbrush asked me if we wanted to try their product that promises big changes, I said oui straight away. It doesn’t hurt to try something new! Plus it is a super famous brand seen on TV! Here is our Playbrush Review just for you!
Playbrush Review – Welcome to the World of New Technologies!
One of the reasons why I agreed to try this product is because Baba loves his tablet and I thought it would be a good motivation to get him hooked!
I am sure some people would say it is another gadget. But I reckon you don’t have to use it everyday! We have not as I don’t want to create a dependence to it but if we have a bad day with a tantrum when it’s brushing time, then I am happy to use it!
Seeing Baba starting to be so reluctant to do it was really worrying me. I remember my mum having a constant battle with my brother to do so. In comparison to him, I was 1 ange and very happy to brush my teeth 3 times a day! I think I was too scared to have to visit the dentist too often! Time for Baba to follow into his maman‘s steps! Keep Up Smiling Frenchie!
Playbrush Review – An Easy Start
Playbrush is this little blue piece (other colours available) that turns any manual toothbrush into a game controller.
It literally took me a couple of minutes to charge the base via the USB cable included in the pack and we were ready to play!
I created an account for both Baba and I so that we could have a bit of competition between us. Don’t worry, I made sure I won 🙂
The app has many games available on both apple & android devices. We tried it both on the tablet and my phone. If you fancy using it in the bath, you can also get a plastic cover to hold it and it still works through it so really well-thought when you have wet fingers!
Playbrush Review – Our Experience
We mainly used the one called Utoothia. It is super sweet as you are a knight and you have to kill baddies. And you do so while you brush!
It’s so well imagined as you have to brush in all directions to get them. Plus the timer set to 2 minutes means that there is some good brushing going on!
Now as you may have noticed on the pic, I was not too fussed about where the action was taking place. Bathroom, corridor… We brushed our teeth everywhere! It did not matter as Baba had so much fun. He was even eager to get extra points and tried to move the knight himself!
The whole game is very interactive. It encourages you when you do well and gives you extra rewards if you are champion at brushing.
A Very Interactive App!
The game in the app indicates in which direction to brush your teeth so that you make sure you cover it all. What I really like about it too is the little summary you have at the end so that you can see what areas you need to take care more of.
As an adult who prides herself of having a good dental hygiene, I was surpirsed to see that I actually had a weak point in my brushing! It makes you think!
More importantly, it really gave a boost to Baba. While we had cries and tantrums when it was time to brush his teeth sometimes (it was basically me doing it for him…), we have now a less reluctant toddler to do so!
Playbrush – What We Love
Playbrush has so many fab features to make your children (and you!) keep smiling!
- So easy to install and I am amazed by the battery longevity
- Parents receive a summary of kids’ performance so you can actually check on the good (or bad?) work done!
- This weekly update could also be a good motivation
- We love the competitive element in it. I reckon it would work very well on boys like Baba
- Each game is fun and really engaging
- It’s so small you can pack it away on holidays!
Playbrush Review – Le verdict
Playbrush is a cool device that encourages children to brush their teeth. Transforming la brosse à dents into a game controller is such a cool idée! And it works! Baba is not running away when I tell him ‘Viens to brosser les dents!'(Come to brush your teeth! Imagine me saying it in a very imperative voice, right?)
Still with his cheeky smile on, but he is willing to do it! I bet you he thinks he is going to get a better score than me!
One of the most boring routines turns into some great adventures filled in with so much fun! We are back smiling all the way through! Watch out decay monsters! Did you know that 25% of children will have tooth decay when they start school? This is scaring me! And Playbrush will help me to make sure Baba is not part of those horrific statistics.
Now if something similar could be created for him to go on the potty without a fuss or simply listen to me at all times, it would be SO GOOD!!!! I am allowed to dream! The mama life is a rollercoaster 🙂

Gaga I’m glad I’m not the only one with kids that chew toothbrushes! I reckon mine did it for about 12 months. Thankfully they are both very good at properly cleaning them now but this is a fun way to do a rather boring everyday job!
such a great idea to encourage kids to brush their teeth and make it fun!
What a great idea but do they do a Peppa Pig one?
This is a great incentive to brush correctly
great tool for kids
What a clever idea! I’m 31 and brush my teeth properly but I still want one
Great idea – teaching oral health at this age THROUGH technology can only be described as brilliant
This looks amazing!
I think this is such a great tool to encourge kids to brush their teeth, I know I’d have loved it as a kid x
This is great….I wish they had things like this when mine were little….its great for my nephew though ❤
So glad to read how well this has worked for you and Baba.
Holy moly, this sounds incredible! When Luke brushes his teeth, we often get him to do it himself first and then do it again for him afterwards. I’ve noticed he’s great on the back teeth, but doing his front teeth and bottom row seems to be tricky for him. Something like this would be great for encouraging him.
What a fab idea! Something like this would definately keep my 2 year old engaged in brushing her teeth xx
I chew my tooth brush now, maybe i need this for myself lol. Seriously though it sounds like such a clever idea. Both my girls are rubbish at brushing so this would make it more fun for them
I think my nephew would love this…actually I think I would love it too! 😀 Great tool for the little ones
I think that some parents use gadgets too often when it comes to their kids. However, it’s so important to introduce a good routine when it comes to their teeth that the use of a gadget (if it is going to work) is definitely warranted!
Fantastic idea nothing like a mobile phone to get children interested in something and will encourage them to spend more time cleaning their teeth
A great app with an educational element – never a bad thing, eh?!!
I am so impressed with this. I wish I had found it before now as Monkey has developed so pretty bad habits. I had no idea he wasn’t brushing all the areas of his mouth right either. A firm favourite in our house and I can’t wait to get Kipper doing his too!
An excellent and fun way to teach good habits without nagging, thanks for pointing it out.
awesome idea for kids to get used to using a tooth brush
Such a good idea.
Tech these days! great idea….
My goodness, there really is an app for everything these days~!!
What a great idea. I want one for myself.
Great way to encourage the little ones to brush properly!
This looks fab, I struggle with my youngest and teethbrushing, this looks promising for him
This worth a try to make teeth brushing less of a battle!
What a great idea, and what a gorgeous little one you have ?
Fab idea, my Son hated cleaning his teeth and used to clamp his teeth on the bristles and wouldn’t let go x
Fab idea, great toothbrush x
This looks like a really good idea my daughter Sheriah 5 doesn’t like to brush her teeth this could be a good help
