If you\u2019re in the market for the best electric toothbrush for your kids, the Colgate E1 Smart toothbrush is exactly what you\u2019re looking for. Not only does it perform far better than manual toothbrushes, its soft bristles are easy on the gums, and apps linked to the toothbrush can coach a child through their good habit.\r\nWhy We Like It - Colgate Electric Toothbrush\r\nThe Colgate E1 Smart Electric Toothbrush might be simple in design, but its smart device functions provide valuable feedback when brushing.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nUsing the Colgate Electric Toothbrush might just be the easiest toothbrush to use among other electric toothbrushes. All you do is press the power button and brush your teeth. It only has one brushing mode, like the Philips Sonicare Essence. Compared to other electric sonic toothbrushes, it performs pretty well\u2014not the best, but still leagues better than manual toothbrushes. Instead, its major strength is its performance tracking.\r\n\r\nWhen paired with an iOS device a 3D brushing coach can track your movements and give you tips on where you can improve or areas you\u2019ve missed. What\u2019s awesome is kids can take part in an interactive game that responds to the way they brush, encouraging better oral habits."\r\nDesign\r\nThe Colgate Smart Toothbrush isn\u2019t bringing home any awards for design, not with its very simplistic aesthetic. It isn\u2019t ugly, per say, but its design doesn\u2019t exactly match its premium price\u2014not like the Oral-B 7000, and that electric toothbrush is $20 more expensive. Thankfully, the toothbrush performs far better than it looks.\r\n\r\nWhile the brush head has soft bristles, matching the Fairywill Electric Toothbrush\u2019s design, the brush heads are lacking a tongue cleaner.\r\nValue\r\nConsidering the Colgate E1 performs well (it is Colgate, after all), has a long battery life, and near smart device capabilities, Colgate\u2019s smart toothbrush has really good value. The value you get from the apps is invaluable, especially when you consider how reluctant kids can be sometimes. The E1 aims to not only teach kids how to brush, it can even improve an adult\u2019s own oral habits. Having access to a mini-game is just icing on the cake.\r\nColgate Electric Toothbrush Wrap Up\r\nWhile the Colgate Electric Toothbrush isn\u2019t the prettiest of designs, don\u2019t let that fool you. It\u2019s battery life will last a long time\u201410 days\u2014, soft bristles that aren\u2019t too harsh on the teeth and gums, and an all around great brushing experience. While it is a bit on the expensive side, you get some smart device functionality that\u2019s perfect for young kids just learning to brush their teeth.
