楽しい歯ブラシタイムをもたらします!

Posted by Flipper Museum On August - 18 - 2011Comments Off on 楽しい歯ブラシタイムをもたらします!

今日では、25%以上の子供たちが5本以上の治療済である歯があります。多くの場合、それらの治療は虫歯によるものです。子供たちは幼いときから、これに対抗するためにも良好な口腔衛生を保護者が教えなくてはいけません。米国ボストン小児病院のウン医師は、保護者が子供に自分自身で歯ブラシをする習慣づけが大切だと言っています。

しかし、実際には子供たちにとって歯ブラシはとても退屈で面倒な毎日の習慣作業です。子供たちのそうした反応は珍しいことではなく、それを教える保護者との洗面所での忍耐と戦いでもあります。そこでフリッパーは遊びと楽しさの要素を取り入れるツールとして活用することができます。簡単で手軽にその歯ブラシのきっかけ作りになります。考えすぎることなく、まずは試しに使ってみてください。きっと簡単に楽しい時間になると思います。

1. 楽しい「トゥースフェアリー」のビデオ


歌もある歯ブラシアニメーションをご覧ください。歯ブラシを楽しくさせる工夫を凝らした内容になっています。

2. お子様といっしょに歯ブラシを・・

パパ、ママも一緒にお子様と歯ブラシタイムを過ごすことは貴重な時間を過ごせます。忙しい日々でも、一緒に鏡の前でその時間を過ごせます。歯ブラシのお手本を見せることで、お子様もそのブラッシングテクニックを覚えていきますね。

3. ブラシの回数を数えてみましょう

たとえば、歯を一本ずつ数を数えながらブラッシングをしてみましょう。そう、「前歯1本、みがけた!2本目、3本目・・・というように」。お子さんも数を数えることを覚えながら、歯ブラシができますよね。

4. 歌いながら!

うがいでも「あーいーう」というように、歯ブラシでも2~3分くらいハミングしながらでも歌を歌って楽しく歯ブラシをしてみませんか?

5. トゥースフェアリーと一緒に・・・


歯ブラシも歯みがきペースト、コップ等たくさんのキャラクターがついたものやいろいろな種類があるように、歯ブラシホルダーにも楽しさを提供するのがトゥースフェアリーです。毎日の歯ブラシ習慣を楽しくできます。

6. ステッカーを張る台紙をつくってみましょう


毎日歯みがきが楽しくできたら、星のシールを張れるような台紙を洗面所につくってください。毎日ちゃんとできたら1枚張るようにすれば、歯ブラシ習慣を開発するのに役立ちます。

Bringing FUN into Brushing

Posted by Flipper Museum On August - 1 - 2011Comments Off on Bringing FUN into Brushing

Today, more than 25% of children under 5 sport untreated tooth decays. Often, these lead to cavities. To counter this, children need to inculcate good oral hygiene habits from young. In fact, Man Wai Ng — the Dentist-in-Chief for the Children’s Hospital Boston — advises parents to encourage their toddlers to start brushing independently.

However, for many young children, brushing their teeth can be a boring or even downright frustrating routine. After all, diligence and discipline are not the typical hallmarks of your average tot. Upon seeing the child’s resistance, some parents may in turn attempt to ‘force it down’. Eventually, the washbasin becomes a dragged out battleground in a mutual test of patience.

Why not try a paradigm shift? Introduce an element of casual play into the brushing routine. Be light-hearted about it. Make it engaging. Make it an adventure. Make it FUN! Not sure how? No worries, here are some ideas to get you going!

1. Fun Tooth Fairies Video


Watch this animation while brushing, and sing along! The on-screen tooth fairies will go through the joy and importance of brushing teeth in a fun and light-hearted manner.

2. Brush with your child

Brushing your teeth together with your child can be a great bonding time. Grab your toothbrush, stand beside your child in front of the mirror. Encourage (or challenge!) your child to follow and mimic your movements exactly, as you go through the brushing techniques.

3. Count as you brush

As you brush each tooth, count aloud. For example, “Number one, all clear!” “Tooth number two, done! Here we go for tooth number threeeeeeee!” This can even be an entertaining way for your child to learn the numbers and practice counting.

4. Sing-‘Aaahh-long’-song!

As you brush your child’s teeth, encourage him/her to go “Aaahh~~~” for as long as he can, varying the pitch, tone and rhythm into a tune. A typical song is just about 2-3 minutes long: just about the right timing for a thorough brush.

5. Together with Tooth fairies!


There are a variety of toothbrushes, toothpastes and other products that comes with cartoon characters. These favorite characters can then become the ‘Tooth Fairies’ in the bathroom, keeping your child’s attention and turn the routines from work to play.

6. Make a Sticker Poster


Create a ToothFairy brushing chart ! Award your child a sticker or a star that he/she can paste onto the poster after a thorough brushing. When your child completes the chart, give a small award, or do a fun activity together!

Ultimately, children are great emulators. Your enthusiasm and eagerness will definitely rub off on them. Hopefully these tips will help your child develop healthy oral hygiene habits in a fun and engaging way!

Flipper Review: How to Use Flipper® toothbrush holder

Posted by Flipper Museum On May - 31 - 2011Comments Off on Flipper Review: How to Use Flipper® toothbrush holder

Check this out. This video shows how to use Flipper® toothbrush holder at home!

To quote:

“The Flipper Toothbrush Holder was designed to keep your toothbrush clean,off the counter and out of harm’s way. The Flipper will stick to any non-porous surface providing that the surface is clean of oil and dirt. Moisten the suction cups, and press to the surface. then flip open the holder by means of the small switch on the bottom and place your toothbrush inside. The Flipper will snap shut and your toothbrush will stay suspended in place. When needed, simply pull the toothbrush towards you.

The Flipper can be washed by warm soapy water, and a cotton swab. Leave to air dry. Wash the Flipper every two weeks to avoid buildup. His head moves too!”

Flipper, a charmingly quirky yet innovatively functional toothbrush protector cum holder by ORCA has introduced three new design series – the BIG EYE, OZY Joy and MIRA. Joining their existing Animo Jr. range from the kids series, Flipper redefined the twice daily routine of oral care to a more hygienic, stylish and enjoyable experience for everyone and anyone.

My favorite design, the big eye robot. It has wheels, so could push it around like toy

Flipper offers a unique and globally patented one-touch mechanism that flips open and flips shut automatically in response to the gentle tug or push of the toothbrush – a perky and cool way to start and end the day. While the toothbrush is in Flipper’s protective case it is protected from airborne germs and disease causing bacteria as well as occasional bathroom visitors such as geckos and insects such as …eeekkk cockroaches!
