No More Tantrums! No More Mess! Just clean healthy teeth!
Every parent knows the struggles of getting their child to brush properly.
From tantrums about brushing, getting your children to brush long enough, and toothpaste EVERYWHERE – It’s enough to make you crazy - not once, but twice PER DAY!!
Kangaroo Oral Care is a healthy hygiene toothbrush with an automatic toothpaste dispenser for kids 2 to 12 years old. The Kangaroo Oral Care brush is a training tool expertly designed by Jaime Frand, a nurse and father of four, to train children in proper hygiene habits for life.
If your children are old enough to brush their own teeth, then they’re old enough for Kangaroo Oral Care. It’s perfect for children of all ages! The latest and greatest in oral care is here! Teach your children to brush the fun and effective way with Kangaroo Oral Care!
The toothpaste is a fluoride sparkling bubble gum flavor. It is dispensed from a transparent tube so you know exactly how much is left. The toothpaste lasts 1.5-3 months depending on usage. A neon green or neon pink soft grip handle color option adds fun. Multi colored lights signal the 2 minute timer.
That’s why we’ve created the Kangaroo Oral Care system.
Created by registered nurse Jaime Frand to help make brushing easier for both his patients and his own children, Kangaroo Oral Care is designed to make your life easier and your children’s mouths cleaner. The brush is a convenient way to alleviate the mess that children tend to make when applying toothpaste from a tube. It is fun and educational so the child should be happy and look forward to brushing their teeth, which is not always the case with regular brushes.
Kangaroo Oral Care is more than just a brush, it’s an all-in-one oral hygiene teaching tool. We’ve combined a variety of oral hygiene tools into one convenient and kid-friendly package to help make brushing easy and fun for children of all ages. And Kangaroo Oral Care not only helps your child brush, it also helps teach proper oral hygiene habits that will keep their mouths healthy their whole life.
Check out some of the ways that Kangaroo Oral Care is the ultimate way to teach your children proper oral care.

- In 2003, Americans considered the toothbrush to be number one invention without which they cannot live
- Americans spend over $850 million a year on toothbrushes.
- In an un-brushed mouth, there can be as many germs as on a dirty bathroom floor,” says Ann Wei, DDS, a prosthodontist based in San Francisco.
- Your toothbrush is a little bacterial magnet, attracting the little buggers from several sources.
- You can actually burn calories by using your toothbrush. Three times every day for 2 minutes each will help you burn 250 calories.
- Bad toothbrush can be a reason for Periodontal Disease:
Jaime Frand holds a masters degree in nursing and has over 6 years in the field as a registered nurse. He is also a father to 6 year old triplets and a 3 year old. He realized through nursing and fatherhood that there was a major need for easy oral care.
Jaime came up with the idea for the toothbrush when dealing with oral care for his patients. They ranged from infancy to 100+ years old as he treated them in the home environment on a ventilator, with a tracheostomy and/or feeding tubes. These patients need good whole mouth care and cannot usually do it on their own. This made him very familiar with the importance of good oral hygiene.
He also struggled with getting his kids to get into the routine to brush their teeth the right way twice per day. He needed a single handed all in one solution. That’s how the Kangaroo Oral Care toothbrush was born. His kids now have healthy oral hygiene habits and are keeping up with their routines.
"Over 2 years, I built a team of manufacturers, designers, and dental experts to bring Kangaroo Oral Care to life. I have been through numerous prototypes, product molds, and testing to bring your the toothbrush in its best form. I truly want to help you and your family." said Jaime.

● How Do I Store Kangaroo Oral Care Toothbrush?
Once finished brushing, rinse off excess toothpaste from brush with water, and store upright to let air dry.
● Do I have to clean the brush?
You need to rinse it with water once finished brushing, and let it stand straight up to air dry. Do not cover the brush, which would harbor bacteria, as per ADA guidelines
● Where Do I Get Toothbrush Refills?
You cannot refill the brush with toothpaste as that goes against dental and ADA recommendations unless you are changing the brush head, which most people do not, so when the Kangaroo Oral Brush looses its toothpaste, you need to get a new one to prevent any germs and bacteria from getting onto the brush.
● Can I just refill with regular toothpaste instead of throwing it away?
No - a child or parent might forget to change the brush heads after the required time, and that goes against ADA and Dentists recommendations- you are supposed to change your toothbrush every 2-3 months- so it was made as a solid piece to prevent a user from refilling the brush.
● What if I order the 1 time use and like it, where do I get more after your Kickstarter finishes?

Risks and challenges
We have experience in producing past consumer products. Because of this, we are aware of some of the manufacturing challenges. Good design takes time and experience which we have. We only expect small manufacturing delays if any. There’s always a chance of delays through customs or shipping. We are in constant contact with our manufacturers to bring you the latest updates.
Quality control is another issue we have faced in the past. To combat this, we will ask for periodic sampling and test out new colors with caution. We know what to look for and how to get there. However, we know that Plan A doesn’t always work and we always have a backup plan.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
