Dinner? Check. Bath? Check. PJs on? Check. Teeth brushed?

Now, that can take some effort. So, why not make the task a little easier by making brushing fun?

The Firefly Peanuts Light-Up Toothbrush has a handle featuring the beloved characters of Charlie Brown, Lucy and Woodstock playing one of their classic baseball games. Of course, Snoopy is there atop the brush, too.

And here's the really fun part, your kid just presses a button, and the brush lights up and flashes for 60 seconds, so kids brush the proper amount of time. (We let our young kids brush one minute, then brush for them for one more.)

The brush, awarded an American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance, is just $2.49 at CVS, Kroger and other mass-market retailers. A lot cheaper than a filling.
