Do you dread the “c” word? Do you cringe when your dentist asks how often your kids brush? It’s hard enough getting tots to brush their teeth at all, but figuring out how to get your kids to brush their teeth for full two minutes is like, well… pulling teeth. Fret no more. A new handy Alexa trick is here to help.

If you want to make the brushing struggle much easier, all you need to do is ask Alexa for a little help. With the new Alexa Skill Chompers, kids will want to keep brushing those pearly whites all day long. Just give the command, “Alexa, start Chompers” and the whole family will be treated to a two-minute long show of interviews, jokes, riddles, silly songs and more.

The show is designed to keep kids entertained while they brush for a full two minutes, which is the recommended brushing time given by the American Dental Association. Chompers is actually a podcast created by the same team behind Story Pirates, which means that each brushing session brings new guests and entertaining stories for little brushers.

Don’t have Amazon Echo? Don’t worry. Since the show is a podcast it can be accessed on a variety of platforms including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, iHeartRadio and more.
