Orbit for Kids Gum Review



Disclaimer:  I was given the products in this post for the purpose of a review. 
I was not paid in any way to write this review.
All opinions are my own.


It's National Dental Hygiene Month and we're kicking off the month with a fun way to help take care of your mouth. Once again my brothers will be doing this review, after all I'm only 20 months old and although I take really great care of my teeth this one I couldn't do. I promise that I'll be back with something special just for me and you. Without further ado here's my writer, my mommy, to introduce my stinky brothers.


Poor Madison she feels left out. Don't feel too sorry for her because although she wasn't able to review the brand new Orbit for Kids gum she did have fun hiding them from her brothers. Kyle (12) and Mikael (8) hate to brush their teeth. It's always something that I have to remind them to do. Don't ask me why because I have no idea. They do their bi-yearly dental visits and the last visit needed fillings because of how badly they care for their teeth. 


Well Orbit has a brand new gum made specially just for kids and they were kind enough to send me a sample along with new toothbrush package complete with floss and mouthwash. Now I was pleasantly surprised that Orbit had gum for kids. Kids love eating gum and it's usually the sweeter the better. Orbit Kids come in two delicious flavors: Strawberry Banana (which we received) and the Original Bubble Gum. 

They are also available in 2 different package size. The envelope size that includes 14 sticks of gum and the Micro Pack Multi-Pack bags which has 10-packs of 6 stick micro packs inside. I love the micro-packs! 

Now you're probably wondering "how can gum help with dental hygiene?", believe me I asked the same thing too. Well I took a look at the Orbit for Kids website and I was truly amazed at the info that was there. 

Did you the benefits of chewing sugar free gum? If not I'm going to list them for you. Taken from their website: 
  1. It Stimulates Saliva Flow: Chewing sugarfree gum stimulates saliva production - an important defense mechanism to help protect teeth. And healthy teeth means happy mouths! 
  2. Neutralizes Plaque Acids: The increased saliva stimulation that comes from chewing sugarfree gum has been demonstrated to neutralize plaque acids. Fabulous!
  3. Helps to Keep Teeth Clean: Chewing sugarfree gum within 15 minutes of eating or drinking helps clear food debris from teeth. That's something to smile about!

Now I don't condone chewing gum instead of brushing because there's no way that's going to work but this is a great way for me to encourage my boys to brush. I use the Orbit for Kids gum as a treat after meals as well. I really love the fact that they're sugar free and they're a great alternative to brushing when you don't have the time to brush. Think being outdoors after a quick trip to your favorite fast food restaurant.

Now Orbit for Kids also sent us that little toothbrush package that you see in the photo above and the boys were delighted, especially Mikael. The toothbrush is made by Firefly and has a really cool feature. It blinks just like a firefly would for one minute letting your child know that they should brush that long. My ideal time for brushing is 2 minutes but this was a very cool alternative. I would much prefer them brushing for 1 minute instead of a few seconds which is what they like to do. You can also go for another minute or two if you prefer as well.

Now here's a little video of Kyle and Mikael giving us their impression of Orbit for Kids gum.

  19. we got this at the store last week- my 4 year old wants to chew gum like the "big kids" and this one seems soft enough that it won't choke her. i'm a nervous nelly. we always choose sugar free.

    1. Sugar free is the best to get. Don't want too much sugar but even without the sugar my brothers still loved it. ♥ Madison

  20. It's good that these products are here to encourage kids to take care of their teeth. We never had pretty tooth brushes when I was a kid.

    1. Mommy said the same thing too. She said "we never had those pretty light up toothbrushes when I was a kid". That was in the dinosaur age so I may have to agree with her. ♥ Madison

  23. I love the idea of this gum being a fun motivator for my kids. And for those inbetween times as well. My kids inherited my horrible teeth so we have to be extra vigilant! Any little thing would help!

    I love the idea of the firefly toothbrush. I've told my kids to sing certain songs but that doesn't always work and they sometimes swallow the toothpaste because they're singing instead of brushing. :( I'll have to give this a try!

    1. Mommy loves it too. It'll help them brush a little longer. ♥ Madison

    1. Yes you don't see kids gum too often. I'm happy there's something that I can look forward to. ♥ Madison

  25. I didn't know Orbit made a product specifically for kids. My kids love chewing gum and as long as it's sugar-free, I encourage it since it is good for their teeth.

    1. Now they can have their own special gum. Awesome right? ♥ Madison

  26. I would think this gum would be great for adults too. It is a good product to have when you can't brush your teeth.

    1. I should think so too. There is no reason to think that adults can't use kids products. ♥ Madison

  27. You've got some handsome spokespersons there for your product review. :) I like the Firefly toothbrushes, they are great for ensuring the kids are brushing long enough. We have those here too.

    I haven't purchased the mouthwash, but I'll keep my eyes open when we're out shopping.

  28. Great that the company creates kits like that for kids, as dental hygine is very important. I think my little one would be more into brushing if he had something like that. Thanks for sharing.
