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.

Kid’s perspective

This app teaches how long to brush your teeth in a certain area... for instance a visual picture. After you are done with your brushing, you get a prize, sometimes it is clothing items or food, backgrounds or spray paint. For the first few days, I was really excited, then, as there were less and less rewards, I wasn’t excited to brush... I felt it was a waste of battery to go on my phone and use the app to brush my teeth. Especially in the morning and I am running late. Also as my food pantry got more and more full, I got annoyed because I have so much food that my sparkly won’t eat and almost every time I get food. I just feel like there should be a trash can... maybe make a blending machine. I was just expecting more when I started the app.

Please allow kids to choose a default color for their character

I love this app. So does my 3yo son. It has majorly helped him learn how to brush. He loves the Sparkly character, BUT is getting increasingly frustrated that he cannot “wash off” his spray paint. He likes to have sparkly change color every now and again, but really would like to be able to have him go back to his favorite color (purple) at this point. I would suggest a feature where you have kids choose a default color for their character that they can change with the spray paint, but then wash off (take a shower or something) when they want to go back to their default color. Similar to the “undress” button which removes all the clothes objects instantly. This would instantly make the app better for kids.
