What It Is
Brushin Buddy Bear, part of the Baby Gund collection from Gund, is an animated stuffed bear that encourages and teaches kids how to brush their teeth through song. To turn the toy on, flip the switch located on the toy's bottom. Then squeeze its hand to start the music and make the bear start brushing its own teeth. A song to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus" will play instructing kids to brush up and down in the front, brush gently, and don't forget the backs. The song lasts two minutes, which is the amount of time for brushing recommended by the American Dental Association. At the end of the song, Brushin Buddy's teeth will light up showing off its sparkling white smile.
Why It’s Fun
This is a fun way to engage your kids as they brush their teeth, while teaching them about good dental hygiene and encouraging an important aspect of their daily routine. We also like that Brushin Buddy, despite the hard battery pack in its belly, still has super soft huggable fur.
Who It’s For
Brushin Buddy Bear is for ages 18 months and up.
What To Be Aware Of
If at any point you need to stop, simply squeeze the bear's paw to stop the song. Squeeze it again and the song will start from the top.
Three AA batteries are included and adult supervision is encouraged.
