A Great Toothbrush for Toddlers: The Radius Totz Toothbrush

I received this product free for review. All opinions remain my own. Post contains affiliate links.

As you know, I’m a loyal user of Radius’s toothbrushes with replaceable heads. I’m passing on the Radius tradition by choosing their brand for my son as well!

Now, the Radius Totz brush is not a miracle toothbrush: it doesn’t make my son want to brush his teeth or eager to open wide so I can do it for him. He definitely wants this toothbrush, any time we are in the bathroom, he points at it frantically until I hand it over. At last check, his favourite use for it is to brush… his hair. We used Radius’s Pure Baby Toothbrush when he first started getting teeth. He loved it so much he dropped it down the drain… where it remains to this day. But let’s face it: my son loves cat food. His opinion on toothbrushes doesn’t really count at this point!

So then why do I like this toothbrush? Well, because my son needs to brush his teeth, and I may have to wrestle with him to get it done, but I like to know I’m using a toothbrush that is manufactured by a conscientious company to be more durable than other brands and to have less of an environmental impact.

Little things make this brush better than the one my dentist gave me when she saw I was pregnant. It’s shorter, its handle is fatter and slightly curved, and its head is rounder with softer, nicer-quality bristles. According to Radius, “the oval head has non-aligned bristles to help avoid tooth erosion and provides cushioned brushing.” I definitely find Cub is much more comfortable holding his Totz brush compared to the other one we have.

As Cub grows, I plan to stick with the Radius line of children’s toothbrushes because I really like supporting companies that conscientiously consider the lifecycle of their products.

Before RADIUS embarks on making a new product, we put the concept through an evaluation to make sure that we are not just making some more landfill in the name of progress

I love that their packaging is eco-friendly, unlike the non-recyclable, impossible-to-open hard plastic packages that encase most toothbrushes. The brush handle, once you snip off the brush head, is number 5 plastic and can be recycled!

If you can’t find them at your local natural health store, you can purchase Radius products at Well.ca.

    I bought this toothbrush for my girls after reading your original post for the adult radius toothbrush (which we purchased and LOVE). I find them much easier for the kids to hold on to. Awesome toothbrush!!! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂
