Playbrush Review

Child brushing teeth, happy and smiling.

What does it do?

This unique brush turns the task of brushing into an enjoyable virtual game for your young ones to play. With multiple different levels for them to play through, this brush teaches your children to brush properly while making it the chore as fun as possible by connecting with a smartphone or tablet through Bluetooth to allow them to play their favourite Playbrush games. This then means that the time of the day that is often dreaded by those in their younger years is turned into something that is enjoyable allowing them to benefit from their very own electric toothbrush without the normal tantrums attached.

Another benefit to this product is that the brush adds a competitive aspect with siblings or friends meaning parents can set challenges with rewards as part of their daily routine to encourage better dental hygiene within the household and ensure that this is continued in their later years.

How Much Does It Cost?

Currently, there are two different kinds of Playbrush that are available to you but both have a very similar selling point. There is the Playbrush Smart which retails for £24.99 and is available in a wide range of colours to suit your children’s preference, whilst turning the manual brush into a portal into their own virtual world. But there is also a Playbrush Smart Sonic which is available to pre-order. With its smart cleaning technology and unique brush movement, this electric toothbrush gives a deeper clean allowing your children’s mouths to be as healthy as possible without any of the hassle.


There are many benefits to this product as it not only encourages children to take care of their teeth whilst making it fun, but it also comes at a very reasonable price. This brush is slightly more expensive than a normal children’s toothbrush, but with the interactive elements available it is more than worth the additional investment. In addition to this, the smart brush base is detachable so you can even attach it onto their favourite toothbrush to maintain an element of consistency in their morning and night-time routine. This also promotes great dental hygiene because you are encouraged to change your toothbrush every six months and this makes it far more cost effective as you do not need to invest in a new base every time.


While there are a great number of benefits to the Playbrush, this product does have some drawbacks. With young children, brushing their teeth can be quite messy and therefore you are running the risk of not only the base becoming damaged but also your phone becoming wet or broken when used within a bathroom environment. Additionally, the Playbrush base is a very peculiar shape which can make it difficult to store when not in use. This could be a problem for those who do not have a lot of space and is, therefore, something to consider before purchase.

With all this in mind, this revolutionary brush helps to promote proper oral health and encourages young children to see brushing as enjoyable rather than a chore. This, therefore, helps parents encourage their children to enjoy looking after their teeth, making it an extremely worthwhile investment.
