My son is a fanatic about brushing his teeth. I know some parents have a hard time getting their kids to brush at all, but my son? He enjoys the independence of putting on his toothpaste on his toothbrush and then, after I get a few good swipes in, finishing the job himself. He’s also taken to the idea of being allowed to spit into the sink – ah, boys!
I was excited to be selected to host a MommyParties event showcasing the Oral-B Stages product and featuring the new Winnie the Pooh movie. We had never tried Oral-B Stages before simply because we hadn’t moved from the “training” toothpaste I had been using forever. I didn’t realize that Oral-B Stages products are designed for children 4 months to 4 years old. This is perfect for us as my sons are nearly 2 and 3 1/2 years old.
Our party consisted of 5 moms and 10 children ranging in age from 15 months to 3 1/2 years old. We set up the family room with a Mickey Mouse blanket and another comforter on the floor so that the kids could make themselves comfortable with their popcorn and watch the movie. We were able to capture one photo (above, left) with 8 little ones in it. I think some of the younger kids broke free just after this one was taken!
While the kids enjoyed the movies, the moms and I talked teeth. Many of the older crowd, the 3 year olds, had already had a trip to the dentist. And, like me, the moms had not used the Oral-B Stages toothpaste before; however, we’ve all tried the fun character toothbrushes.
The moms left with fabulous Oral-B swag bags. They were excited to try out the new toothpaste with their children. My boys love that their toothpaste has Lightening McQueen and Toy Story on it and the Winnie the Pooh toothbrushes. The girls were loving their Disney Princess toothpaste containers also.
My sons, and their friends, ended their get together excited to try out their new toothbrushes and toothpastes!
