Still Number One after all these years…and years… and years!

All children love Dex the Dinosaur

Who’d have thought that even with putting a man on the moon, being able to communicate with friends and family all over the world any time of the day or night, and the opportunity of stalling live tv, at the touch of a button – that dinosaurs would still be so popular – but they are!

The release of the sixth film in the Jurassic World franchise last weekend, has already seen box office takings in excess of £200m and dinosaur attractions across the UK are bracing themselves for the welcome return of little (and big!) visitors over the forthcoming months.

In fact paleontology has never really fallen out of favour with children, who, since time immemorial are fascinated by this seemingly mythical, but real-life creatures. 

Dippy the Diplodocus – the nation’s favourite dinosaur and the iconic representation of the  Natural History Museum, has just returned to his home in the entrance hall of the museum after his 3 year UK tour. Visiting eight venues, where over 2m visitors turned up to see his vast skeletal form, he’s now back in his world-renowned position, primed and ready to host sold-out ‘Dino Snores’ sleepovers for children and adults over the forthcoming months.

As children’s toothbrush providers, we’re acutely aware of the importance of attracting and maintaining a child’s interest in toothbrushing, and the popularity of our KidzSonic dinosaur electric toothbrush, indicate the admiration of these prehistoric reptiles, has never waned.  

Dex the Dinosaur and its accompanying non-foaming mild Spearmint toothpaste are a great way to get kids toothbrushing.  A bright chunky handled dinosaur-themed toothbrush with its integral 2 minute timer, bi-level bristles and flashing lights, attract a child’s interest and encourage, and hopefully maintain interest for at least the necessary 2 minutes toothbrushing twice a day.

As an added incentive, we tell parents to tell their children that dinosaurs roamed the earth over 150m years ago and their undecayed teeth are still being found to this day. Nice one Dippy!
