My thoughts:  GUM sent me some toothbrushes and some flosser’s.  My girls loved the light up toothbrushes!  They wanted to brush their teeth over and over again just to play with their toothbrush.  I explained to them that they needed to brush as long as the light was on.  The only thing is they can’t see themselves in the mirror so they keep looking at the toothbrush to see if it’s still lite! LOL They will get the hang of it. I’m trying to teach my 5 year old to floss more and the flosser’s too help. She has a tough time doing it herself but she lets me and that’s the important thing.  I’d have to say GUM did a great job making brushing more fun in my house!
