Aquafresh for Kids


How do you make brushing fun for kids? Stripes baby! Half the kids are always growling, “Man this white toothpaste is lame.” The other half are bellyaching, “This Green toothpaste gives me the creeps.” I have learned that whenever you are in a situation like this – always stick them together. Always.

In the 1980s, that’s exactly what the Aquafresh people did and they put it in a sweet one handed pump to boot. That way Mom wont go crazy because you squeezed from the top or lost the cap. Its a win win situation. The giant toothpaste pump may not be as an endearing as Tony the Tiger, but after repeated watching I have to admit, he has a certain something.
