Kids now have an incentive to brush their teeth thanks to the launch of the next-generation musical toothbrush - Possi, developed by Kyocera and Lion.

The new toothbrush utilises Kyocera’s proprietary ceramic piezoelectric element inside the head of the toothbrush, turning electrical signals into vibrations to transmit music directly to the user without the use of external speakers, so only the child can hear the music.

Possi is a toothbrush for the parent’s final brushing after a child brushes on their own. The round shape and candy-colored design appeal to children. Kyocera’s small ceramic piezoelectric element and digital-driven amplifier mounted on the body cause the toothbrush head to vibrate, allowing the child to hear and enjoy music only when the brush head is in contact with the child’s teeth or the inside of the mouth.
