Comparing the cost of kids’ electric toothbrushes

A recent trip to the dentist for my three year old, Hayden, came back with a recommendation to buy an electric toothbrush. Keen on following doctor’s orders I went to the local pharmacy. The Oral B Kids Mickey Mouse electric toothbrush seemed like a funky and friendly enough option. It was the only option there.

But it was the price that made me quickly stack it back on the shelf. It was at an eye watering price of R645.95 ($47.96). The visit to the dentist was an unexpected one as was the price of this simple gadget, so I gingerly put the item back, smiled at the assistant who showed me where it was and scurried out of there like a fox that had been caught in the henhouse. I vowed to do a comparison though to see if I could get it for cheaper electric toothbrush elsewhere and I thought I’d share my online exercise right here.
