1. Colgate Kids Peppa Pig Manual Toothbrush for Children 2-5 Years

The Colgate Kids Peppa Pig Manual Toothbrush is “Amazons Choice” for a “kids’ toothbrush”.

It has been designed for children aged 2 – 5, or older.

People have given it 459 reviews, and it has received 4.3 stars.

Reviews vary – one says that “They are a great size for a three and four-year-old to hold and brush their teeth comfortably.

Great that they are different colours so they know who’s is who’s”.

Others are disappointed they did not receive Peppa Pig, as the name suggests.

Let’s look into it.

Pros

  • Extra soft bristles, which is ideal for a child who is still learning to brush their teeth, it will clean them effectively but gently.
  • The small head will fit comfortably in little mouths.
  • The thumb grip and rounded handle make it easy for children to hold.
  • Its suction cup allows it to stand rather than touch your bathroom sink, so bacteria won’t transfer.

Cons

  • As the name says, colours vary – you may not receive Peppa Pig, you may receive Minions, or another colour or character. You can’t choose, so may not receive what your child likes best.

Price and Value

At $2.95 for one of Amazon’s best, and the only downfall is the colour or character.

This toothbrush is great value for money.

2. TEPE Kids Select Compact Extra Soft (Ages 3+)

TEPE Kids Select Compact Extra Soft has 4.4 stars from 25 reviews.

Made for children 3 years or older, it seems adults love it too.

A review, calling it the “Best toothbrush I’ve used yet”, says “I bought (sic) one for myself and then more for my kids. Softest toothbrush I’ve ever used and still cleans great”.

Is it really that good?

Let’s see.

Pros

  • Bristles are extra soft and compactly arranged, so brushing is effective and safe.
  • The handle is small, so it’s comfortable and easy for small hands to grip.
  • It’s brush head is tapered, so access to the mouth is eased.
  • The neck is flexible, it can be angled in hot water, so even difficult to reach teeth and gums are easy to reach and clean. Combined with the end-rounded filaments and tapered brush head, this gives your child a gentle but effective clean.
  • Made in collaboration with dental experts.

Cons

  • You cannot choose from the colours and patterns, it’s simply the luck of the draw.

Price and Value

3.49 with the one downfall being you cannot choose from 7 great, bright, fun colours?

Nothing bad can be said about the price of this toothbrush.

3. Oral-B Stages 2 Mickey 2 to 4 Years Toothbrush Extra Soft

Oral-B Stages 2 Mickey 2 to 4 Years is “Amazon’s Choice” for a “child’s toothbrush”.

Designed for kids aged 2 to 4, it has been given 4.2 stars from 24 reviews. Most say it’s great, and kids love it.

Let’s look into it.

Pros

  • You will get Mickey Mouse and nothing else. If your child loves Mickey Mouse, this can be a fun way of teaching them to brush their teeth.
  • Its coloured bristles in the centre, known as “Paste Target”, help you and your child add the correct amount of toothpaste to the brush.
  • The “Power Tip” bristles are designed to reach and clean those usually hard to get back teeth.
  • A narrow, cushioned head easily accesses small mouths and protects tender gums.
  • The Mickey Mouse brush handle is easy for young children to hold.
  • Designed with Dentists, all of the needs of a child learning to brush have been considered. It cleans gently but effectively.

Cons

  • You’ll get Mickey Mouse, but maybe not in your kids favourite colour. Colours differ from the picture – some red, some green, you don’t get the choice.

Price and Value

$1.77 for an “Amazon’s Choice” child’s toothbrush, where you know you’ll get Mickey Mouse, just in different colours? Y

ou really can’t go wrong.

4. Colgate Kids Minions Manual Toothbrush for Children 6+ Years

Colgate Kids Minion Manual Toothbrush has been made for children that are 6 years or older and has 3.9 stars from 117 reviews.

Reviews are varied, some good, some not so happy.

Let’s see why.

Pros

  • It has a soft tongue cleaner, which will get your child into good brushing habits while young, and help remove bacteria from their tongue and cheeks.
  • The thumb grip and round handle make for a comfortable hold.
  • Its’ suction cup means it can easily stand upright on your bathroom sink – this makes it both fun and germ-free.
  • The extra-soft bristles make for a gentle but successful clean.

Cons

• As the name suggests, colours vary. So, instead of the Minions, you might get a Pink Princess, which your son may not want to use.

Price and Value

$3.65 is still a great price for what is a great toothbrush.

But it’s worth asking the question – will your child be happy with either a yellow or blue Minions, a Spider-Man, a Pink Princess, or any other Disney character you may receive?

Or will this cause arguments about teeth brushing?

5. Colgate Magik Kids Toothbrush with Augmented Reality App and Fun Brushing Games

The Colgate Magik Kids Toothbrush has a whole 5 out of 5 stars!

But only the one rating.

It uses an augmented reality app for children aged 6 and above.

Let’s see what this is all about.

Pros

  • Has extra-soft bristles.
  • The app teaches your kids how to better brush their teeth.
  • It makes brushing fun by using games.
  • It inspires your child to brush, as the app allows them to enter new game experiences and earn rewards.
  • It has a toothbrush timer for kids, and a dashboard for parents, so you can both see how well and how long they have been brushing.
  • One toothbrush holder can be used for several brushes if you have more than one kid, or want to try it yourself. So, everyone in the house can have a go, and keep on track with brushing.
  • The toothbrush holder allows for easy, upright, germ-free storage.

Cons

  • It needs the use of a smartphone before bedtime, which may not be what you want for your child. (To use the app, you must use the Colgate Magik Connecter to turn the manual toothbrush into a connected smart toothbrush).
  • Takes up more room in your bathroom, as it requires a phone holder.

Price and Value

$18.49 isn’t a bad price for a brush that engages your child in brushing.

But if you don’t like the thought of a smartphone before bed or in your bathroom, you could consider an electric toothbrush, as many work in a similar fashion.

6. Oral-B Cross Action Pro-Health 8+ Toothbrush Soft

The Oral-B Cross Action Pro-Health 8+ Toothbrush is made for children aged 8 and above.

It has 4 out of 5 stars from 1 rating, but no reviews as such.

Let’s uncover it, shall we?

Pros

  • Its crisscross’ bristles remove plaque from between teeth, that’s normally difficult to reach.
  • It has a textured tongue cleaner, which removes germs from the tongue, for fresh breath.
  • The brush handle has been designed for pre-teen hands, enabling them to develop a great brushing technique.

Cons

  • I’m not 100% sure you’ll get the character in the picture – it may be a lucky dip.

Price and Value

$3.99 is still a great price for a brush for your pre-teen, from a well-known brand.

7. Macleans Toothbrush Kids Big Teeth for Children, 7 Plus Years

We’ve now reached the point where we’re at Amazon’s most purchased, not most reviewed.

This is still a great way to judge whether a toothbrush is good – if people keep coming back to buy them.

But I will delve a little deeper.

Let’s look into Macleans Toothbrush Kids Big Teeth for Children, which is made for children 7 years or older.

Pros

  • Its blue and purple design is fun, encouraging your kids to brush on their own.
  • It has been designed by dental experts, who know your child’s enamel is soft and vulnerable, and their teeth difficult to clean.
  • The design of the handle and mixed bristle head helps to clean mixed teeth, gaps, and gums.
  • The mixed bristle length helps clean in between teeth.
  • Bristles are soft, helping limit the risk of your child damaging their gums.
  • The flexible neck helps to take in the overabundance of pressure your child may apply.
  • The suction foot allows it to stand easily, and remain germ-free.

Cons

  • If your child plays around with it, excessively bending the neck, this may break the neck of the toothbrush. You may need to keep a close eye on them when brushing, as this can be a choking hazard.

Price and Value

$3.49 for a fun toothbrush designed by dental experts is not a bad price at all.

8. Colgate Kids Bamboo Manual Toothbrush for Children 6+ Years

The Colgate Kids Bamboo Manual Toothbrush, which is made for children aged 6 or more, is also one of Amazon’s highly purchased toothbrushes.

Let’s see why.

Pros

  • It’s BPA-free.
  • Has been carefully tested for quality.
  • The toothbrush handle is made from 100% natural, biodegradable, sustainably-grown bamboo, and coated in natural beeswax (this minimises water absorption).
  • Helps look after the planet, as even the cardboard packaging is recyclable.
  • Has soft, slim, floss tip bristles which gently, deeply clean.

Cons

  • Characters may vary – between a Koala or Polar Bear.
  • As the brush is made from bamboo, it’s recommended you dry it after every use, which takes time.

Price and Value

At $4.99 for a fun design that is almost fully recyclable, this is great value for money.
