Let’s face it: of all the things kids consider fun, brushing their teeth is probably not in the top ten. Or the top … hundred. But of course, it’s a necessity. As parents, we’ve just accepted the inevitability of having to nag them endlessly for 10+ years and wishing we could get them as excited about oral hygiene as they are about YouTubers. Threatening them with the possibility of cavities may work temporarily, but it’s so much effort to get them to muster up any enthusiasm about it.
Because the struggle is real, we’re always on the lookout for ways to actually make brushing more enticing. Enter the latest find: this Baby Yoda toothpaste topper that any tooth-bearing Star Wars fan (or just people who like really adorable things) will want. A number one new release on Amazon this week, it’s made of a non-toxic, food-grade material and is safe for the whole family to use. Simply attach it to your toothpaste tube, squeeze, and watch the paste flow from Baby Yoda’s mouth straight onto your toothbrush (um, yum?). “Mini-yoda throwing up toothpaste? I’m in,” says one enthusiastic reviewer.
If nothing else, this is a fun method of getting your kids into the tooth brushing habit. And if the cuteness factor alone doesn’t work, you can reel them in with a corny joke: Go brush your teeth before they … Grogu. (For non-fans of The Mandalorian, Grogu — pronounced “grow-goo” — is Baby Yoda’s real name.) You might get an eye roll, but deep down they’ll think it’s really clever. Maybe. We hope.
