Getting kids to brush their teeth for 2 minutes takes focus and time. Kids like to be independent but need guidance. The Two Minute Turtle Timer™ has enough stimulation to make toothbrushing a game. Kids press the on-off button on the turtle back and guess which flipper will blink first. The child brushes the corner of the mouth corresponding to the blinking flipper, until the Victory Lap signaling to brush the tongue. No more reminders. Kids learn to pace themselves and enjoy the independence.
“This is such a great idea! The timer is an adorable turtle with four flippers. The goal is to get your kids to follow along with the illuminated flipper for 30 seconds and brush the corresponding corners of their mouths. The packaging is simple and colorful, and proudly states that it was designed by Invent Boston (Go Sox!).”
“Two Minute Turtle Timer™ is the epitome of fun, while helping kids learn how long to really brush their teeth. The visual cues help to keep my kids focused on the goal. Getting my boys (3 and 6), to brush before bedtime always seemed to be a chore, now they look forward to it. When the 2 minutes are up the turtle does a “victory lap,” where the flippers all light up and we all do a little dance party in the bathroom…because, why not!?”
“I love that my kids are excited to brush their teeth, but more importantly, that they are brushing for longer. Even as an adult, it is easy to miscalculate how long two minutes really is.”
“It is obvious that a lot of time and engineering went into this product. The turtle comes with the options of sticking it to a mirror, or it stands vertically thanks to its sturdy base.”
“My kids love the fun light up colors and following along with the turtle. Their favorite part is when they finish and get to do the victory lap.”
“I like that it is water proof and that you can also stick it to the sink, wall, or mirror.”
