Good in theory


If this app worked, it would be great. My 4yo daughter loves it but is disappointed on a regular basis bc the only prizes she gets is food. She rarely ever gets the spray paint, which like another reviewer said, is the most valuable prize. Also like the other reviewer said, the parenting dashboard does not allow the parents to give credit for kids brushing without using the app. My daughter is gone every other weekend, and I know she is brushing her teeth, but I cannot give her credit where credit is due. Also she doesn’t always want to use the app because the prices are boring so she brushes her teeth without using the app, and I still can’t give her credit. This app seriously needs fixing. It would be great in theory if it actually worked. I can also see that reviewer‘s have been complaining about the same thing for a long time now, and nothing has been fixed. So it doesn’t seem to me like the company cares much about the reviewer‘s comments.

Great idea, needs some improvement


Need to be able to sync across devices and back up, not just to provide flexibility but also so you can delete and start over when the app breaks.

About that, Sparkly has randomly stopped coaching and talking to us, which is really annoying, especially since his last two learned skills were burping and talking. No combination of changing the settings will give him his voice and music back.

Also, there’s supposedly a feature to give kids credit for days they brushed but didn’t record, but it does not work as the app said it should - in the parent dashboard the little yellow markers described in the description just don’t show up. Super annoying.

Also, less food and more spray paint in the rewards would be great, the food is kind of stupid because you can’t feed the sparkly right after it brushes (rightly so) and if you feed at other times, only 3 at a time, and the costumes are also not super popular. It would be great if the spray paint stuck around like the other things, it’s by FAR the most valued prize.

I would uninstall and try again... but see above.

All of that said, my kids love it and clamor to brush their teeth, so it’s definitely worth getting.

Hi there, thanks a lot for taking the time to share your well-elaborated review. We're glad to hear that your kids like it so much and that it makes them eager to brush their teeth. As for your feedback, the feature, in which you will be able to synchronize the data, is currently being looked into. Of course, we're also always working on improvement of the current features, so your feedback is very welcome and much appreciated!

Please add


My son loves linking this app to his toothbrush, but have another app that includes dental floss and mouthwash. I know you do not sell those products, but I wish that you would add the option of floating and mouthwash to your app as well so that he can do everything in one app. I keep opening this app so that he can brush his teeth with his sparkly and then opening the other app so that he can floss and do mouthwash with his other creature.
I wish there was the option to share between two phones. my husband sometimes brushes his teeth with him and I sometimes do it. I know that I can ask for credit and give it to him on my app but it'll be very convenient if you could just have it linked
