Disney Magic Timer App by Oral-B
Disney Magic Timer by Oral B features 23 Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars characters. This app will encourage your kids to brush longer by keeping them entertained with their favorite characters.
Brush DJ is a toothbrush timer app that plays two minutes of music from your device to encourage brushing for two minutes. You can let it pick random songs from your device, or pick your child’s favorite song.
Brush Up is a toothbrush training game. This app puts your child’s face in the mirror on the screen and lets them see themselves brushing just like Bud to get all the gunk off their teeth.

Toothsavers is part of the Kids' Healthy Mouths campaign to help parents reduce the risk of oral disease for their children by encouraging their kids to brush two times a day for two minutes.This game lets children move along the path in a quest to reach the next level and save the teeth.
