We’ve been having trouble convincing one of our girls to brush her teeth for two minutes, like the dentist said. She’s perfectly satisfied with a brushing experience of oh, say, 10 or 15 seconds. So I searched around online and found these nifty Rite Light blinking nightlight/toothbrush timers.
We bought two of the lights, have used them for a couple of weeks now, and all love them. Seriously, LOVE.
Figured if anyone else is tired of being the brush warden, you might like these little gizmos too. When it’s dark in the room, the unit functions as a nightlight, and when you push the tooth button the green light starts slowly blinking. The light blinks faster and faster until it turns red at the two-minute mark, signaling your tyke that her brushing time has come to an end.
Ro and Ree humored me with a video demo of the timers this evening, and it just killed me that Ro (in stripes) kept whacking her hand on the counter anytime I turned around to focus on Ree. Guess she thought I was missing out on some award-winning dramatic tooth action in her corner. It also cracked me up that Ree was so eager to demonstrate the nightlight capability that she turned the lights off in the middle of brushing, then could barely wait to remind me about it at the end. Funny little girls.
PS: This company doesn’t know we exist, and I don’t get anything if you buy this little device, just sharing a great product.
