Scanning characters DOESNT work

The fundamental idea of this app is good however when the scanning of characters doesn't work and your kid screams and cries morning and night as It is the same for free BB cars there and not the one we bought in the store… until they fixed this issue do not buy it!

Too much consumerism

DISNEY MAGIC TIMER does what it sets out to do: get kids excited about brushing their teeth. And it may very likely add to the sales of Crest or Pro Health character products. The timer gives kids something to focus on to make sure they're brushing according to dentists' guidelines, and the quadrants help them be sure to hit all four parts of their teeth. It's all just a bit unpredictable. Some days, the toothbrush just won't scan. When it does, it may not correctly identify the character on the brush. Three scans in a row of a Cinderella toothbrush unlocked Ariel, Rapunzel, and finally, Cinderella. Another scan unlocked Lightning McQueen from Cars. Really, that bug just adds to the excitement of "which character will I get today?" and saves parents the requests to buy additional character toothbrushes.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
