Instagram's Trendiest Toothbrush Is Now Available For Kids, and Might Actually Encourage Them to Brush
If you're active on Instagram, chances are you see ads for Quip toothbrushes more often than photos of your friends — and there's a likely chance you've even caved and purchased one of the trendy electronic brushes, like I did. As a proud owner of a sleek copper Quip toothbrush, I'm confident in saying I have zero regrets buying myself a toothbrush simply because I thought it was "pretty," as I'm now a much more devoted brusher thanks to Quip's easy built-in timer system. And now that the brand has released a kids' line of trendy brushes, oral hygiene can become a true family affair.
If you're not familiar with Quip, the brand's promise is to deliver a product that will help you to brush less roughly to align with dentists' advice, while also providing a sleek product that reduces environmental impact. Each battery-operated toothbrush (no plugs necessary!) comes with a built-in, two-minute timer that splits itself into 30-second intervals, alerting you to switch to another quadrant of your mouth. It's a helpful system for kids who are just learning to brush their teeth on their own and turns the whole thing into a game.
Plus, the brand makes remembering to change your brush head easy — if you say you haven't gone far too long without getting a new toothbrush or changing the head on your bulky electronic one, you're lying — by sending refills of brush heads (and toothpaste!) every three months. You don't even have to think about it — Quip sends you an email to remind you that it's sending your refill, and it shows up at your door.
So take "new toothbrush" off your to-do list, grab yourself a Quip, and shop the four adorable colors you can get your kids' Quip in ahead.
