This Pokemon App Can Get Your Kids To WANT To Brush Their Teeth


One of the biggest battles for parents at bedtime, aside from getting kids to go to bed, is getting them to brush their teeth. Pokémon could be the answer!

Pokémon Smile is a new app that uses the same functionality as Pokémon Go, but requires kids to brush in order to catch the creatures.

The Pokémon Smile app, which is available for both Android and Apple, has over 100 Pokémon characters that have been trapped by cavity-causing bacteria. In order to rescue them, kids need to brush using their front facing camera and they need to brush thoroughly. There are even alarms you can set as reminders to little ones that it’s either time to brush, or if they’re brushing, that they need to do it for longer.(IGN)
