Happy Children’s Oral Health Month! We’ve spoken before about the importance of your children brushing for two minutes, two times a day and about the many cool offerings out there to help make brushing fun for your children. Several weeks ago the Ad Council and the Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives introduced their first free mobile app, Toothsavers, to help children remember to brush two times per day for two minutes.
Toothsavers is available online and for iOS and Android devices. The app was created on behalf of the Kids’ Healthy Mouths campaign, and it inspires children to brush their teeth for two minutes two times per day by enlisting them in a mission to rescue fairy tale characters from an evil, cavity-creating sorceress who cast a teeth-rotting spell on the entire kingdom.
From the press release announcing the new Toothsavers app:
“Featuring a fun and colorful design, Toothsavers includes three key features to help parents and their kids learn about the importance of oral health:
• The game calls on kids to be heroes. In a timed, finger-swipe brushing game, they can save 10 characters in a fairy tale kingdom from an evil, cavity-creating sorceress.
• The two-player version of the game allows for kids to “brush” the teeth of their friends and parents when the mobile device is held up to their mouths.
• The app also offers a real-life toothbrushing companion for kids and parents to keep track of their brushing progress, as well as morning and nighttime reminders.”
