Based on the fact that there are three kids in our family this is a very effective and cost efficient way to get them to floss their teeth. Though I do to find the product with the ease of use as typical dental floss is, I have found them comparable to other higher end products that we have received from the dentist. All of them enjoy using these as they come in different colors, shapes, and different objects. They like the variety so they are more likely to use them each day. Flossing is a habit that can be started early with the right product and this is one that I said earlier is cost efficient and does the job for the kids. Sometime it is harder to hold the flossing tool due to the shape, and the floss does shred easier than others, but not enough for us to stop using them. For the kids this product is helpful and will remain an item used daily in our house for many years to come.
