About the Brand
Philips is a Dutch company with a long and interesting history. They’ve persevered through some of Europe’s toughest times and come out shining, bigger than ever. This household name provides affordable and durable goods to the mass market. The Sonicare range is widely recognised and numerous studies have concluded that it’s significantly more effective than manual toothbrushes.
Good habits last a lifetime...
Good habits instilled in children will last them a lifetime and we’d all be better off if we’d had electric toothbrushes when we were kids. This Philips Sonicare aims to make brushing not only easy for children, but fun too.
The rubberised brush head means that clumsy hands won’t clatter a harder brush head on teeth and is very comfortable in the mouth. While this only comes with one brush head, there are three compatible sizes available so that you won’t need to buy a whole new toothbrush handle when your child grows, just the next brush head size up! Philips are committed to affordable health.
Not to be short on technology, this children’s toothbrush has sounds that let your child know when it’s time to move onto another section of their mouth for in-depth and consistent cleaning. With fun and lively sounds, kids will be able to pace their brushing perfectly. There’s even an auto-shutoff at two minutes so they know exactly how long to brush for and don’t have to time it themselves.
Eight included stickers allow your child to make this kids electric toothbrush their own
This Philips Sonicare HX6311/07 Rechargeable Toothbrush for Kids comes with eight stickers that can be affixed onto the toothbrush for total customisation. Children like to make boring things more interesting and good for them, we’d all have cleaner teeth if they did stickers for adults. I know I would.
Small efficient charger
The charger is small and the toothbrush sits nicely on it and turns off when fully charged just like adult toothbrushes. This makes it small enough to take with you on holiday and the toothbrush holds a lot of charge when full so your child doesn’t have to take the charger with them to sleepovers or weekend stays with the grandparents.
Easy to hold means less dropping
The slightly flattened, anti-roll shape of the handle means that the toothbrush fits easily and comfortably into a child’s hand and they can grip it without it sliding.
Philips has developed a teeth brushing app (iOS /Android) and game just for young brushers that helps keep them motivated and enjoying their new electric toothbrush routine. The app is free and children can choose a character to help them with their brushing.
