Plackers kids’ flossers - Love at first floss #Giveaway Ends 5/4


In my house flossing has always been a tough habit to start for my kids. They will do it if I am there to constantly remind them, otherwise I get the "I forgot" line when I ask later. Mostly I think it's been an out of sight out of mind thing since the floss is in the drawer and sometimes gets pushed to the back or covered up. And some is just that it's another step they don't want to take the time to do. So as a parent we have to get creative sometimes to encourage them to do the things that are not only necessary, but good for their health too. With Plackers® Flossers now on hand I've actually seen my daughter flossing on her own without the reminder more than ever before. She has a cute little monkey shaped Flosser Friend™ that sits on the bathroom counter that reminds her to floss after she brushes. I love it because the flossers are completely inside the holder so they stay clean, yet the monkey reminds her because it's sitting out in plain view. She said she likes that and that the flossers have a good flavor to them not plain wax. Plackers® helps kids develop healthy dental care habits with Fruit Smoothie Swirl Kids’ Flossers. The fruit smoothie flavor is one that kids like and will encourage them to floss every time they brush. I know in my house it's helped already!


The new, brightly colored flossers are designed with an angled head, allowing kids and parents to easily reach all teeth. Plackers’ Hi-Tech® floss is engineered not to stretch, shred, or break, and includes fluoride to promote strong teeth and reduce tooth decay. The kid-friendly fruit smoothie flavor is sure to be a hit and helps make flossing a fun – and tasty – task.

“Dentists recommend as soon as a child has two teeth that are touching, parents should help them begin a daily flossing routine,” said Greg McCormick, Senior Vice President of Global Innovation and Technology for Plackers’ parent company, Ranir. “Plackers new Kids’ Flossers were designed specifically with parents and children in mind to offer an easy, fun and flavorful way to teach kids about flossing and healthy dental care habits. If parents teach their kids healthy habits when they’re young, they will be more likely to carry on those habits throughout their lives.”

Plackers enhances the overall flossing experience for kids with its new Flosser Friend™. The adorable monkey-shaped flosser holder is meant to amp up the fun factor and help kids look forward to flossing. Not only is the flosser holder a cute way to store kids’ flossers and keep them close at hand, its flip-up cover design allows kids to easily access their flossers. The Flosser Friend is easy to open and clean, and comes pre-packaged with 30 dual grip kids’ flossers.

Plackers new Dual Grip Fruit Smoothie Swirl Kids’ Flossers and the Flosser Friend are available at Wal-Mart stores nationwide and other retail stores such as Publix, Safeway and www.target.com.

  1. My grandson brushes his teeth twice a day, and is learning how to use dental floss also. This would be a good reminder for him to use it every night-
