Meet Brushies, your new plaque fighting friends. The Brushies are fun finger toothbrushes designed to make brushing teeth time fun and different for your little one. Use The Brushies from 4 weeks to 4 years to establish a healthy daily brushing routine to help fight plaque and tooth decay. The Brushies are all designed around 4 fun characters; Momo, Chomps, Pinkey and Willa. Along with these four loveable finger puppet toothbrushes, there is also a book that brings these characters to life to help teach your children the importance of dental health.
We loved the idea of The Brushies as soon as we saw them but we wanted to hear what our parent testers thought of the product and see the difference The Brushies finger puppets made to brushing time.

I really love The Brushies - my little boy was so excited when I gave it to him. We got the set with the book as he loves book’s so it made the brushing experience extra fun! They are super easy to grasp and also really easy to clean afterwards. I would really recommend this product to other parents, it takes the worry away from brushing and makes the experience a fun one!

The Brushies book and finger puppet toothbrush is such a good idea! My little boy gets so excited when he sees the book and definitely relates the fun of story time to the fun of brushing his teeth. It's so important to make brushing fun from a young age to really get them into the habit of good oral hygiene which is something I've been conscious about ever since our weaning journey started. The silicone brush is soft against his teeth and gums and allows me to get to the hard to reach teeth without the risk of hurting him as I can feel exactly where it's brushing. It really is an essential and I'd highly recommend!

I have been using Momo the Monkey to brush my daughter’s teeth with for 2 weeks now and have gone from a rather confused little face to a huge grin when he comes out to play. She likes it because it’s colourful, fun and comes along with story time. I like it because it feels a lot more hygienic, it’s easier to use than a normal toothbrush on a 1 year old and it’s got her engaged. With only 5 teeth, it’s extremely soft on my daughter’s gums too, especially when she is teething and everything is already painful. I can also easily feel that I’m getting each tooth which is a bit hit and miss with a regular toothbrush. We are looking forward to trying out different characters from The Brushies and keeping up the fun and play when we brush our teeth.

The Brushies are a brilliant, imaginative and fun way to engage children with the daily chore of brushing their teeth. Before, my son would run away and fight having his teeth brushed and with a normal toothbrush he used to just suck the toothpaste off. But now, with the help of the Brushies, he happily comes to sit down on my lap and brush his teeth with Wila the whale! The Brushie characters are an integral part of our routine now and enable us to make songs and play games making cleaning teeth fun!

The Brushies set arrived in a neat brown paper postal bag with the set carefully wrapped within. No plastic in sight! The Brushies were presented in a display box which also encased a story book related to the brushies and their use.
The colours are vibrant and a good size for their proposed purpose. The quality of the brushies is again as you would hope for and expect when using a product intended for brushing a baby’s teeth. The soft bristles of the brushes are comfortable against their gums as well as their teeth and are easy to clean after use. The characters are mentioned in the book, each with a name and each a different animal, explaining about the importance of brushing your teeth. They are cute and attractive to a baby/child and were popular with Clémentine. They’re easy for parents to use and a baby to use on themselves.
The variety of characters, colours and inclusion of the story book for toddlers makes this gift set a very appealing purchase. They are popular with our daughter and will definitely be something we recommend to friends.

I entered a competition on the Natural Baby Shower Instagram page to parent test The Brushies Gift Set as we have been having trouble brushing Olivia's teeth lately, I was very pleased to find out that I had won just as I misplaced her toothbrush following a trip away, so was great timing!
Natural Baby Shower got it sent out straight away and it arrived in a large brown paper bag, with all the bad press on plastic lately I was very pleased to see some recyclable, environment friendly packing.
Olivia couldn't wait for me to open up the equally environment friendly packaging of The Brushies Gift Set and have a feel of the super soft silicone finger puppet toothbrushes. We had a little read of the book, which I think is a great way to try and make teeth brushing fun for little ones, and she immediately started to chew on the little characters without any prompt from mummy.
I even managed to apply some toothpaste and give her teeth a little brush without any tears and Olivia continued to play and chew on them all day. Olivia seems to love multiples at the moment and spends hours moving them around the house and hiding them in her play kitchen so these were naturally a huge hit.
I hope that this success continues and that she will grow to love brushing her teeth as I want to make it as stress free as possible and to keep her teeth clean and healthy, and I think The Brushies will be perfect for this!
