This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Tom’s of Maine.
We were recently offered to try Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry toothpaste. Actually, my kids were offered the chance to try it and I agreed to videotape it.
I had a feeling they would like it and my suspicions were confirmed when my daughter said she liked it better than what we normally use because it’s not mint. She doesn’t care for mint; says it burns her tongue. How she can actually be my child is a mystery to me because I LOVELOVELOVE mint anything but regardless, she hates it and asked after we were done videotaping if she could use the Silly Strawberry toothpaste EVERY time she brushes. I’d say that qualifies it as an official hit with my older child.
My younger child is four and we still brush his teeth. While his ability to eat an entire box of spearmint Tic Tacs in about 9 minutes flat tells me he doesn’t hate mint, he was also quite keen on the Silly Strawberry toothpaste. Watch the video to see his ultra cute response to it!
Overall, the Tom’s of Maine Silly strawberry toothpaste got a big thumbs up from both kids, while I like it because it’s got less chemical crap in it than your average toothpaste. I personally have not tasted it but the fact that the kids dig it is reason enough to consider buying it for them—anything that makes toothbrushing more appealing to my children is a WIN in my book.
Tom’s of Maine says: Only one natural oral care company carries the ADA Seal of Acceptance for a children’s toothpaste, Tom’s of Maine Anticavity Children’s Silly Strawberry with Fluoride. And because we care as much as you do, we’ve never tested it on animals or added artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. It’s flavored with natural oils for a great strawberry taste they’ll love.
