Teacher Review

Brushing teeth is a necessary hygiene habit kids should learn from an early age. The apps that care about personal hygiene for kids are very less. Toothsavers is a terrific little app that effectively teaches kids how to brush their teeth and encourages them to do it daily. The two minutes pass quickly as kids follow the character's lead in brushing, starting with the top-left molars, moving to the top middle, going to the top-right molars, and so on, so kids will do a pretty thorough brushing job. 

The app provides 10 wacky characters, many of which will already be familiar to most kids: pirate, dragon, Little Red Riding Hood, and even the evil sorceress herself. Each character comes with its own toothbrushing game and companion video.

Kids can play games to see how brushing removes food from their teeth and kills bacteria, unlocking more characters as they advance along a map in a kingdom that is locked by a curse that only brushing can end. Verbal instructions guide kids through the games and through proper brushing techniques.

From the Developer

An evil sorceress has cast a wicked spell, leaving everyone’s mouths to rot and be overrun by cavities. Now it’s up to you to help Toothy and the Toothsavers save everyone’s teeth!

You’ll have two minutes to brush and scrub away the spell for each of the kingdom’s quirky inhabitants. From the Dragon to Little Red Riding Hood to the Pirate, only you can help them clean their teeth.

Save your own teeth by brushing them with each Toothsaver for two minutes, twice a day. They’ll help make brushing fun. And for every few days you brush, you’ll unlock a new Toothsaver to brush with. Brush for 30 days and you’ll have the chance to defeat the evil sorceress herself!
