This app is a two-minute music video that you can brush along to. The song is catchy, with lyrics that describe brushing round and round. The video is bright and fun and features a diverse range of kids brushing their teeth. You can collect a sticker in the app each time you brush as motivation. However, the song does not remind you where to brush, so you will have to make sure your little one is brushing top and bottom teeth, inside and outside, and left and right!
This app is the best example of a toothbrushing app using augmented reality (AR) technology. When you set up the app, make sure you choose the “Fone’s Method” of brushing in circles, so the animation matches. Using the device camera, it puts a funny filter over the face and a toothbrush that hovers over the section of your mouth that you are guided to brush. It even shows you how to angle the toothbrush! However, it takes around 3 minutes which is a little longer than usually recommended.
Colgate Brushing Adventure
The main cartoons are a surfer girl and a mouth in the corner of the screen. The mouth highlights the section of your teeth you are being guided to brush. The song is catchy with really good instructions for brushing. However, it spends more time on the front teeth and not as much time on the back teeth.
