When shopping for an electric toothbrush for kids, Dr. Sweeney, DMD, says the “biggest goal is getting your child used to brushing and establishing good hygiene habits early on.” 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 2-minute timed session. Its soft bristles are surrounded by rubber massagers and powered with ultrasonic vibrations, which are designed to be gentle on tender gums with loose and erupting teeth. Plus, it’s one of the most affordable options on the market that’s also eco-friendly.
If you want something with smart features, you can always pay a little more for the “smart” model, which is compatible with a smartphone app. It adds an incentive to brushing regularly by allowing kids to earn rewards in the Quip app, but the upgrade costs about twice the price.
What Customers Say:
The reviews for the Quip kids brush are mostly positive, with an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars with over 17,500 reviews on Target. Customers are saying their kids from ages 3+ enjoy using this to brush their teeth compared to others. One parent says, “My kid loves this electric toothbrush as it’s not as wildly overpowered as some other brands. It results in them brushing their teeth for the full time!” It’s worth noting that a few customers found switching subscriptions to be tricky.
