Product Review - Jordan Oral Care Products

~ Posted on Thursday, July 19, 2018 at 12:09 AM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 1.5year-old to 9-years old, I have started cutting down on doing product reviews to focus on our childcare and family life, home cooking, education, helping with hubby's administration site of the business and sharing informational articles on my FB fan page so I am only accepting and prioritizing products that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)! Today's post is my review on Jordan oral care products.

Like my previous review experiences with Jordan, they have always been ever so generous in sending me a range of oral care products for my family (young and not so young hahaha...) to try. This round, I will focus more on their range of products for children. FYI, this year, Jordan rolls out the much-awaited children's toothpaste in 2 groups, ranging from 0-5 years old and 6 to 12 years old. What caught my attention this round is the new flossing and toothpaste products for children! Btw, Jordan's toothpaste products are halal, having been certified by JAKIM on 16 May 2018.

Jordan Oral Care

 Our littlest family member is about 1.5-year-old now and has been ever so eager to follow and replicate his older siblings. Hence, I started brushing his teeth when he turned 1 year old. He is currently using the Step 1 range of toothbrush which is meant for 0-2 years old and it has a small head with soft bristles which was specially designed for children's first teeth.

I chose the orange and blue tipped colour toothbrush for him and use a pea sized toothpaste for him. Of course, at his age, I will brush his teeth first and then while I brush mine, I will let him continue to 'brush' on his teeth since he is still very excited he is allowed to 'brush' his own teeth himself.

Jordan Oral Care

For our 4.5-years-old girl, she was so excited to have a new pink coloured toothbrush. Her Step 2 toothbrush is specially designed to clean milk teeth in children around her age, which is 3-5 years. I like that the toothbrush has an ergonomic handle, easy for her small hand to grip during the few occasions where I let her brush her teeth by herself, while I stood watching next to her. Sometimes I will be the one brushing her teeth so yes, I do feel the handle is ergonomic to the grip for parents' as well.

For our 6.5-years-old girl, her orange and white coloured Step 3 toothbrush is designed to meet the challenging oral needs of 6 to 9 years old children. The challenge at this age is that, with both milk and permanent teeth, the positioning of the teeth may be uneven. The quality and placement of the bristles and head become even more important - hence you can see there are 2 bristle heads on the toothbrush where the integrated ‘solo brush’ reaches molars and hard-to-reach spaces between the teeth and gums ensuring that no teeth or surfaces need be forgotten. She has so far lost 2 baby teeth so I feel this toothbrush helps her in terms of transitioning to permanent teeth.

For our 9.5-years-old boy, he is currently using the Hello Smile range which has active tip and bi-level bristles to clean between teeth. It also comes with a cheek and tongue cleaner and the handle is flexible and has a rubberised grip. The colours are eye-catching and his favourites too!

Jordan Oral Care

Our kiddos also tried the Kids Toothpaste (for age 0-5) and Junior Toothpaste (for age 6-12).The toothpastes are SLS free and the fluoride ppm level is appropriate for the kids' age range.

One of the highlights of our review this time is the Kids Flosser. With a smaller handle and fruity flavored floss, it is definitely exciting for our children to try out. Our 6.5-years-old girl especially enjoys using the Kids Flosser and it is great to know even dentist recommended children to start flossing from 5-6 years old.

Of course, our kiddos were amazed to see there were still some remnants that can be flossed out even after they have brushed their teeth! Compared to the traditional string floss, I think our children prefer the Kids Flosser as the ergonomic handle with soft rubber which allows for better grip especially when small hands are holding it and trying to floss their own teeth themselves. Kudos for the awesome product!

 Overall feedback, I'm very happy we get to review these products AGAIN!

Jordan oral care products are definitely worth the long run for our whole family!

Teaching & Learning Moment - Activities For Children In Airplane

~ Posted on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 at 11:15 AM ~

During our recent family holiday in May 2018, I have decided to ditch the lollipops and iPad which we usually brought along to pacify our kiddos during our 1-2 hours airplane ride. This time, I took the risk of introducing a new activity for our children which is - coloring!

Few days before our trip, I Googled around for free coloring pages worksheets for our children (robot and soldier related for our 9-year-old boy and princess related for our 6.5 and 4.5-years-old girls). I packed 2 cases of color pencils.

Picture below taken as the plane starts taking off and they were so engrossed with their coloring pages. None of the usual fuss of ear blocked, ear pressures etcetc. Win-win!

PINKFONG Baby Shark Ice Cream

~ Posted on Monday, May 14, 2018 at 11:55 AM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 1.5year-old to 9-years old, I have started cutting down on doing product reviews to focus on our childcare and family life, home cooking, education, helping with hubby's administration site of the business and sharing informational articles on my FB fan page so I am only accepting and prioritizing products that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)! Today's post is my review on PINKFONG Baby Shark Ice Cream!

Extreme Colouring- Amazing WorldI remembered when our older 2 kiddos were around 3-4 years old, they've enjoyed watching PINKFONG educational and fun apps on my iPad. It's amazing how fast they learned the phonics and sang along to the catchy tunes even as they mumbled along to the times tables multiplication songs! The Baby Shark song phenomena caught on in our kiddos live late last year and yes, just as catchy as the rest of their songs in the apps, this song caught their attention as well. So it was without a doubt that they were more surprised when they found out there is PINKFONG Baby Shark Ice Cream in the market now!

So I brought our kiddos along to give the ice cream a try and it was delicious!


PinkFong Baby Shark Ice Cream

The packaging is very easy to spot and the colours are reminiscent of the eye-catching app that our kiddos grew up with. Big 'PINKFONG Baby Shark' words can easily be seen on the ice cream packaging together with the shark and PINKFONG mascot.

PinkFong Baby Shark Ice Cream

The appearance of the ice cream at first impression was wow. Different from the other ice creams our kiddos have tried before. Pink strawberry ice cream with drizzles of chocolates all around the ice cream was very inviting and tempting. As you start licking the ice cream, the chocolate drizzles will melt and blend in with the strawberry cream and then you will realised there is a milky layer right in the center of the ice cream. What a surprise! Yum yums!

PinkFong Baby Shark Ice Cream

The verdict? Our kiddos enjoyed the ice cream very much! Creamy, not too sweet and just the right amount of strawberry with chocolate drizzles that satisfy their ice cream cravings once in a while. The ice cream portion is just nice for our kiddos as well.

The joy that started from our lips jiggled all the way to our hands and toes.. enough to get us dancing and singing to PINKFONG’s latest song.. The PINKFONG Baby Shark Ice Cream song!
