Flashing Flippers Guide Kids to Confidently Brush Their Teeth Evenly
Starts at the Press of a Shell
When the soft, rubber shell is pressed, the brushing fun begins. Like a game, children get to guess which flipper will flash first — green, red, orange, or yellow — and start brushing the corresponding section of teeth.
Two Minutes ‘Flip’ by in a Flash
Every 30 seconds, the next flipper flashes a little faster, upping the fun and guiding kids to brush each quadrant evenly. Before they know it, the full 2 minutes of brushing teeth recommended by the American Dental Association is up.
Victory Lap Time!
After 2 minutes, all the flippers flash, reminding kids to brush bacteria off of their tongue. It’s also the grand finale for completing a chore that’s no longer a bore, but a fun, healthy habit they can take pride in completing on their own.

Transform toothbrushing into something kids WANT to do, a toothbrush timer that feels like a game and helps kids to focus. The adorable Toothbrushing Turtle Timer feet blink in 30 second intervals. Each foot represents a corner of the mouth so the child brushes teeth for the full 2 minutes, willingly! While the Turtle rests on a sink or attaches to a mirror, children like to press the turtle timer's soft rubber shell. That simple on/off button starts the Turtle feet countdown with each turtle foot. After the child has brushed their whole mouth the Turtle Timer flashes all its feet--a Victory Lap signaling to brush the tongue.
Don't be surprised if kids want to brush more often. Kids love their friendly companion and parents say it's so effective it's like magic!
Kids brush their teeth while playing a game--kids are motivated and focused.

We love our Turtle Timer
"It has not only simplified teeth brushing & ended battles about time & technique, but it has also helped our 5 year old gain bedtime routine independence and responsibility (he now wants to do it for himself). Huge wins for a spirited child! Thank you, for a functional, durable product!!” -Deanna
When our 4 year old went to the dentist, she had 7 cavities. Yikes! We needed help! We created the Turtle for us. She's been using it for years and at 18 now she still uses her turtle timer every day! And...no cavities!
