If your child's idea of brushing his/her teeth is sucking the delicious toothpaste off the brush then maybe you will like this idea. c's pediatrician suggested using an electronic toothbrush to get him to actually brush his teeth. I didn't even know they existed! I guess they are also have singing toothbrushes. Who knew? I hate being behind on this stuff. Anyway, for around $5 you can get a Thomas one like we did. I'll let you know how it goes.
