  • (1888PressRelease) November 16, 2018 - Atlanta, GA - The Brushies are the world's first finger puppet toothbrush for infants and toddlers. Designed by two doctor moms, family dentist Dr. Hillary Fritsch and child psychologist Dr. Colleen Crowley, The Brushies makes what is often a daily struggle into a delightful bonding routine.

    The Brushies provides both kids and parents the tools to adapt proper dental hygiene from early on in a lighthearted way. The Brushies are made in the USA of 100% food-grade silicone and are designed for kids as young as 4 weeks old. Each Brushie takes on a playful and lovable personality and is accompanied by a book that helps children learn how to brush through whimsical storytelling . Pinkey the Pig, Chomps the Dinosaur, Momo the Monkey and Willa the Whale will help inspire with creative rhymes and tales.

    “Dental decay is the number one chronic childhood condition, but is 100% preventable,” shares Dr. Hillary Fritsch, family dentist and Co-Founder of The Brushies. “I struggled myself trying to get my little ones to brush. We started The Brushies to make such a task easier for parents and fun for the kids.”

    “Children learn best through play and patterns. Our goal with The Brushies was to create a way for kids to associate brushing with playtime and a silly moment with their caregiver,” says child psychologist and Co-Founder of The Brushies, Dr. Colleen Crowley. “With The Brushies, kids will start setting up and learning healthy habits for life.”

    The Brushies' individual tooth brushes and gift sets retail for $9.95-$29.95 and are available online at The Brushies website and Amazon. For more information on The Brushies, please visit
