Plackers gets musical for kids

SAN DIEGO — Plackers, a maker of disposable dental flossers, has expanded its line of oral care products with Brush and Learn by Plackers Kids, a series of musical toothbrushes for children.

Utilizing original melodies and upbeat, catchy lyrics, each toothbrush plays an entertaining, educational song that is designed to encourage healthy dental care habits by making brushing fun. Parents can choose from four Brush and Learn toothbrushes with songs that help teach children their ABCs, 123s, farm animal sounds and proper teeth-brushing techniques.

The toothbrushes have a large on/off button and ergonomic handle to make it easy for little hands to use, and the bristles are gentle on gums. They also have a pedestal base that stands upright for easy storage.

Brush and Learn toothbrushes currently are available at Walmart stores nationwide and soon will be available in the oral care aisle at other major retailers. The suggested retail price is $4.99 each.
