Kidspot parents review Grin Kids Natural Toothpaste

We teamed up with Kidspot to find out what kids and their parents thought of Grin 100% natural kids toothpastes. See what they had to say!

Thank you for the opportunity to review this product. We received the orange toothpaste. My 2 (nearly 3 year old) liked the toothpaste, which is great as I can’t convince him not to swallow the toothpaste and this doesn’t seem as bad to swallow! He calls it the ‘tiger toothpaste’, I think he likes the packaging! My 4 year old daughter tried the toothpaste and declared she didn’t like it – however she is very fussy and hard to please! So that perhaps doesn’t say much… I’ll be interested to try the strawberry flavour, hopefully she will like that!

My four-year old son was very excited when we received the Grin toothpaste orange flavor. The color and graphics are very enticing to my kid. We readily went ahead to try it. At first, he thought it was sour because of the fact that it is orange flavor but he was so delighted when it was actually a bit sweet and not nasty at all! I actually had a taste of it to make sure 

The fact that it is all-natural, I believe that Moms like me will really love their children to use it.

We were lucky enough to be chosen to review this product and I’m so glad we did! For a long time we have searched for a natural toothpaste that the kids all like the taste of. The orange flavoured Grin is just that product. All 3 kids (aged 4,5&8) were excited to try the new tiger toothpaste when it arrived. I like that the packaging appeals to boys and girls and that the product suits all ages rather than needing multiple tubes. The gel consistency was nice…not too thick. This product gets the big thumbs up in our house. It satisfies my requirement for a natural product and keeps the kids happy with the great flavour and fun tiger pictures. Thanks Grin and Kidspot!!

Thank you so much to GRIN and Kidspot for the chance to review to amazing Orange Grin Natural Toothpaste. My 3 children – Aged 1, 3 and 4 all thoroughly enjoyed using this toothpaste. They loved the taste and I loved that it didn’t make too much excess froth, keeping tooth brushing time nice and clean.
I love that it’s 100% all natural and contains no nasties. The graphics on the packaging were adorable too. I can’t wait to purchase the strawberry flavour in our next shop for the children to try. Thank you!!

  1. alisha 24/07/2017 at 5:05 pm

This arrived at the perfect time as we had just run out of toothpaste and couldn’t find any natural toothpastes at out local supermarkets.
My children (2 and 3year olds) loved the strawberry flavour and I loved that there were no nasties in it as my 2 year old isn’t very good at spitting or rinsing.
We will definitely be purchasing again and I’m going to try the adult one too.

  1. mel yu 24/07/2017 at 4:59 pm

my 2 year old loves it!!!! as soon as she saw the packaging, she rushes to grab her toothbrush!! Her favourite dinosaur and favourite flavour strawberry!! Kept on asking more more more!! She has been brushing twice a day and each brushing session she would request for more toothpaste!! I love how it is natural and not needing to rinse afterword!! Thank you

  1. Angelgirl081 24/07/2017 at 2:50 pm

We were sent the Orange flavoured Grin toothpaste to try. Miss 3 was super excited. We currently use the minty Spiderman toothpaste and she isn’t a huge fan of the mint which makes it hard to get her to brush her teeth. I brought her a tooth timer to try and make it fun but even then it’s a struggle, so we were both delighted to receive the Orange flavour as citrus fruits are her favourite. We both tried it, I liked how the toothpaste was clear with no artificial colouring. I thought it tasted quite pleasant and miss 3 thought it tasted like lollies, so that was a definite win. It didn’t seem to lather up as much as other toothpastes, but I understand that’s a good thing. Miss 3 no longer argues with me about brushing her teeth, so that is a definite win in this house. I also love how it’s made up of natural things and no nasties.
Thanks for the opportunity to try something new, we will definitely be buying this from now on, especially as miss 5 months is about to start the teeth brushing journey too (3 teeth eek).

  1. KirstiePlymsole 22/07/2017 at 3:22 pm

We would have LOVED to trial this toothpaste. I have recently seen an article about all the nasties that go into most kinds of toothpaste on the market (some even use a popular brand as mice/rat killer & it is actually effective) SCARY
So because new found knowledge about most toothpaste, our family are looking for a natural alternative toothpaste. Your GRIN toothpaste looks as thought it would be FANTASTIC. Reading all the brilliant reviews above it would appear to be an absolute hit with both parents and children alike. Looking forward to trying it out

  1. AvaLily 21/07/2017 at 2:19 pm

Both kids (1 & 4 years) LOVED the orange flavour Grin toothpaste we were sent to trial. Minimal froth made for less spitting.
We had this sitting next to another brand and the kids choose Grin every time! We have since thrown away the other brand.
Will be buying Grin toothpaste in the future!

  1. Jaqui 20/07/2017 at 11:49 pm

Thankyou very much for the opportunity to review Grin toothpaste, we trialled the orange flavour.
I absolutely loved the texture of this toothpaste! Very appealing to me is the fact the toothpaste creates very minimal froth/foam…with other toothpastes my daughter spends so much time spitting it out when it foams too much in her mouth!
Unfortunately my daughter dis not like the orange flavour and likened it to the taste of medicine. I too dis not enjoy the flavour.
I love the natural product list in this toothpaste!
I would be very eager to try this toothpaste in another flavour but unfortunately would not purchase the orange.
Thank you again

  1. danielle2211 19/07/2017 at 8:51 pm

We received the Strawberry Grin toothpaste, and my kids love it they are brushing more its fantastic! I love that it is all natural, The taste is great not to sweet or hot like some brands. It is a little runnier than the usual tooth paste but once you know that you are more careful.
Iv tried everything to get my 6 and 5 year olds to brush there teeth character toothbrushes and tooth pastes but I think its just boiled down to this one is a nice flavour not so over powering and it doesn’t foam up as much as others. I defiantly will be changing to this brand for the kids!

  1. kfwickins 17/07/2017 at 8:59 pm

thank-you for choosing us to review the Strawberry Grin. My son is 21 months and sometimes a bit reluctant to brush his teeth, especially in the morning. The strawberry flavour seemed much more popular with him than the mint one we were using before. He is much happier to brush his teeth and will let me brush them for longer, so it’s a winner in my eyes! I love that it is an all natural and sugar free product and will be buying Grin next time we need toothpaste

  1. Mummummum 17/07/2017 at 2:48 pm

Firstly I loved the packaging, simple, says what it needs to say, not full of marketing gobbledygook. I brushed my teeth with it first, I try everything the kids try and loved it. My teeth actually felt clean. Kids thought it was nice they liked that it wasn’t minty and actually wanted to brush their teeth longer. It didn’t foam which the kids were disappointed with the first time but it actually seemed to make it easier for them to brush their teeth with with no foam. The orange flavour wasn’t sickly, just the right amount. A big hit in our household

  1. Madieddy 17/07/2017 at 10:10 am

Thanks for giving is the chance to try the Orange flavour!

Firstly it was such a hit with my daughter, she wasn’t to sure to begin with as the packaging looked a little different to the “normal” but once she tried it, it defiantly became the favourite.

I personally liked how compared to other toothpastes in the natural category it wasn’t grainy and it didn’t taste foul so winning to me!

It is defiantly something I will be buying again once its empty!

  1. Loloslunch 13/07/2017 at 9:27 pm

Our daughter has a love-hate relationship with brushing her teeth. Whilst she often loves chewing the brush, she doesn’t really like the minty flavour of the ‘traditional’ strong minty toothpastes. Because of this a battle often ensues to get her to clean her teeth rather than just play with the brush. This is why we were so so excited to trial the Grin toothpaste. We were lucky enough to receive the orange flavour (our daughter hates strawberry flavoured things).

The toothpaste didn’t look as I expected. Used to the more ‘traditional’ pastes, the clear gel was a bit of a surprise. However, we carried on- but I have to say I did wonder what effect it would have. The first time our daughter tentatively put the toothbrush in her mouth she also looked unsure, however, very quickly she realised that she really really liked this new toothpaste. ‘Yum- more’ she exclaimed as she swallowed the lot hole and proffered me the brush! Thank goodness that Grin is all natural with no nasties- I was reassured that whilst not ideal, at least this wouldn’t be doing her any harm (unlike some other brands).

As for the clean, we have been very impressed. I was under the impression that some of the other brands had the monopoly on a good clean. However, this toothpaste is really thorough, without being too foamy or harsh. As our daughter loves the taste, it is also far easier to get her to clean her teeth- such a win especially at bed time!

So overall, I have been really impressed with this toothpaste. The clean, the flavour and the fact that it doesn’t contain nasties are all huge selling points when coming up against some of the other major toothpaste brands. We will definitely be buying this again, and would recommend it to any parent struggling to get their child to clean their teeth.

  1. sez857 13/07/2017 at 9:18 pm

Thank you for the toothpaste to review! We received the strawberry flavour and as far as first impressions I was very impressed. The packaging was clear and fun! I love the fact that it is all natural (and this is the first natural toothpaste we have tried) and I don’t need to worry about miss 2 swallowing any as she’s not the greatest at spitting. Miss 2 loved it and each night will ask for her ‘new toothpaste’ so it’s fair to say it’s been a hit with her. She’s also spent longer brushing her teeth which is an added bonus.

  1. raz1984 13/07/2017 at 6:37 am

I have 2 girls, aged 5 and 1, who have been putting this toothpaste to the test! The results? They’ve been asking for the strawberry stuff and doing their teeth for the proper length of time! The taste is good, smell good but the non-colour has made it hard for the 5 year old to see how much is on her toothpaste sometimes though. Otherwise, it’s a toothpaste they want again!

  1. Jessnz90 12/07/2017 at 11:30 pm

Kia ora
Thank you for the opportunity to trial the Orange Grin.
As a parent I am thrilled that there is no nasties which makes it ok for their little tummies, because lets face it my kids suck at spitting! So are definitely swallowing toothpaste most days.

Packaging was clear, exciting and had enough information.

Both girls enjoyed brushing their teeth although miss 3 said her teeth don’t taste clean, I have wondered if this is because she has come to expect that minty freshness?

I like with all things had a try before I offered it to my kids and found the product sweet to taste. The texture got me good and i over squeezed for its consistency expecting it to be thicker.

I would happily purchase again because the kids enjoy it.

  1. stephanierachel 11/07/2017 at 1:17 pm

Thank you for the opportunity to trial this product. I have been keen for a while to switch to a natural toothpaste. Our two year old was sad that it wasn’t bubbly and our four year old didn’t like the strawberry flavour so they were both really unenthusiastic to keep using it. I will persist and also buy another flavour before giving up. I am happy with ingredients and convenience of buying at supermarket.

  1. shellcruise 11/07/2017 at 12:31 pm

Both of my girls love receiving products to try so once they knew there was a new toothpaste in the house they were so eager to finish dinner and get to brush there teeth.
The packet it comes for is bright and exciting and they loved the tiger on the box. The box itself gives a lot of information but both girls were just ‘come on mum’. The first thing we noticed is the toothpaste is clear which I have to say we have never come across before. It was also more runnier then we are used too. My oldest daughter actually ended up spitting it out and saying that it tasted like mint and lemon and its freaky because its clear. My youngest loved it and uses it all the time.
Would we buy again possibly but in all honesty it is easier to buy a toothpaste they both will use so probably not. But my youngest is enjoying it.

  1. tassynicole 11/07/2017 at 12:29 pm

We received the strawberry toothpaste. Firstly I would have to say the packaging on this is great. My 3 year old son was interested in the dinosaur the packaging. The packaging is bright cheerful and not cluttered.

I didnt tell my son what flavour the toothpaste was and just let him brush his teeth to see what he would think. He told me its was strawberry and could he have more so he brushed his teeth twice! Which is pretty good because although he likes to brush his teeth, how good he is at doing it Im not so sure.

It didnt seem too foamy and being all natural Im not concerned if he swallows any. I liked that it was clear so no colouring added to it. It did come out a bit fast which I wasn’t prepared for.

We will keep going with it and see how he goes but I think so far its a good product. I think if you have a child who doesn’t like brushing teeth and doesn’t like the minty flavour of most toothpastes this would be a good option.

  1. Keki23 11/07/2017 at 11:08 am

Kids have loved reviewing this product, we got home from school and it was waiting for us. The kids were so excited
they went and brushed their teeth straight away! The even spent ten minutes in there! We received the strawberry flavour so was a definite hit with both the kids.

It’s very runny – so got messy when they tried to put it on the toothbrush.

Doesn’t have bubbles – which 3 year old liked but not my 7 year old.

Packing is a nice matte texture.

Natural so i feel happy with the kids using this product.

The best part is my 3 year old actually wants to brush her teeth with this so we will definitely be purchasing this again.

  1. chefettenz1 1/07/2017 at 11:08 am

wow my child loves this Orange flavoured toothpaste, he keeps walking us into the bathroom to show us that he wants it and to brush his teeth again.

Mr 2 was very excited when it came in the post and he got to open it, as a mum i will be buying this product as is so happy to brush his teeth and I love the fact that is natural.

Thank you for letting us try this product, you now have new customers.

  1. palindrome 11/07/2017 at 9:50 am

Thanks for the chance to review! We received our orange flavoured grin toothpaste and have tried it on our 2 year old for a few days now. At first he was a little unsure of the flavour (I think orange takes some getting used to in a toothpaste) but now makes no fuss about brushing his pearly whites. I think Bubs is probably eating a lot of the toothpaste but as it is 100% natural I’m not too concerned. I also tried the orange flavour out (in the interests of research, of course!) and can report that it is quite pleasant – more runny than the average adult toothpaste. The packaging is also attractive and kid friendly. I’m considering buying the strawberry flavour for Bubs to try out as well once he is finished with the orange.

  1. Stepanka 10/07/2017 at 7:30 pm

Our little girl, who is three and a half, likes brushing the teeth. She always asks for new toothbrush and toothpaste, and now she has got three to choose from. She was very excited to receive the orange flavour one, there are not that many toothpastes of this flavour. The packaging is definitely eye catching and children friendly, it’s easy enough to get the toothpaste out, even for our wee one. Our girl always reaches for Grin toothpaste now since we got it. She says it tastes yummy (but she is not swallowing it of course) . Although even if she was I wouldn’t be too concerned knowing the ingredients are all safe with no nasties. I would 100% recommend this one, and most probably will buy again, just different flavour this time. Thank you.

  1. Lulubelle 10/07/2017 at 7:04 pm

I have always used natural toothpastes for my four year daughter. She was using a Red Seal toothpaste but it was under protest as she didn’t really like the flavour. We tried the orange Grin toothpaste and she was quite happy to use it and said it tasted yummy so that is a big plus for us. The Red Seal is now in the back of the cupboard. The only negative is that, at least when the tube is full, it is easy to squeeze out too much as we found out the hard way when I let her squeeze her own which she can usually do very capably. I think the consistency could benefit from being adjusted a little. We will consider purchasing this in the future as it tastes great and we love the ingredient list.

  1. felicity beets 09/07/2017 at 7:44 pm

Our household currently natural toothpaste, so it is great that there is a brand for kids that is natural too, as I am concerned with what can be in some products.

The packaging was great and had a nice matt texture. I was pleasantly surprised that the colour of the toothpaste was clear as for some reason i was expecting bright red toothpaste.

My son loved the flavour, although dad did not really enjoy the flavour. I liked it but given a choice I prefer the more plain, minty or lemony flavours. i also found that because it was quite a runny texture it did come out of the tube quite fast.

It was also a bonus that when brushing my sons teeth because of the clear texture and colour it did not create lots of foam, which i think he was happy about.

The real bonus for me is that is a natural toothpaste and second that it was a flavour my son liked, so would definitely purchase again.

  1. Athomewithmydarlings 09/07/2017 at 12:12 pm

The moment I unwrapped the Grin Strawberry Toothpaste both my girls wanted to brush their teeth, which made me happy with their enthusiasm, unfortunately they were still eating breakfast at the time. But on it did come time to brushing their teeth they loved using the Grin toothpaste and my three year old loved the flavour so much she wanted more. It’s definitely great that it makes them want to brush their teeth. It’s not foamy like others we have used, I guess that’s just part of the natural ingredients that have been used. I also absolutely love that it’s New Zealand made.

  1. mahmatesrulez 08/07/2017 at 9:15 pm

Thank you for allowing us to review the grin toothpaste!

From two kids who don’t like me going near their teeth without a scream to them seeing a strawberry toothpaste and took their tooth brushes and brushed and then allowed me to brush them. They are now reminding me to brush their teeth!!! Really good!!

  1. Michellesmith19 08/07/2017 at 1:04 pm

I have already switched over me and my husband and I would love to get the opportunity to try it for my kids. All natural is always the best!

  1. kim007 07/07/2017 at 9:01 pm

My daughter was very excited to try this toothpaste. She loves the flavour and straight after the first use, I caught her sneaking the tube away to brush her teeth again! I’m impressed with the fact that there are no nasties in the product. A lot does come out of the tube at once as its a runnier formulation than we are used to and my daughter is such a fan that the only problem with this product will be making it last! Thanks Grin. Winners are Grinners!

  1. Staceyleed 07/07/2017 at 7:18 pm

We received the ORANGE Grin toothpaste and the kids love it! i wasn’t sure how the were going to go with it after taking away their usual one but both my daughter 6 and my son 4 love it i have tried it also and has a great flavour without the sickly sweetness of their normal toothpaste! will def be purchased again and cant wait to try the other flavour!!

  1. lkoroivueta21 06/07/2017 at 10:24 pm

We got our Strawberry Grin toothpaste the other day and my 1 year old absolutely loves it( also helps that he loves strawberries). He has actually been letting me brush his teeth which he normally doesn’t. Love that it is natural as well. We will definitely be buying this toothpaste.

  1. tomyp 06/07/2017 at 8:11 pm

Thanks for letting us to try this product.

We received strawberry one. My 4yr old son loved the flavour and has become very keen on brushing. But my 23mth old son still fight over brushing (he bites his toothbrush and doesn’t let me brush his teeth properly). Is the flavour sooo good that he wants to eat it??

  1. Aimeenz8 06/07/2017 at 7:11 pm

Thanks for letting us try this new toothpaste, it was a success in this household  Mr 4 loved it from the second he saw the box (loves dinosaurs) and was a lot more excited to brush his teeth than he normally is! Was a winner with the 1 year old as well and the info sheet that came with it was great too.

  1. Cgmich 06/07/2017 at 6:51 pm

Our 6yo couldn’t wait to try our Grin Orange Flavour that arrived. We have used it a couple of days now and both 6yo and 2yo love it. I was rather surprised the 6yo liked it as she quite likes mint toothpastes. She says this tastes like between liquorice and blue jelly beans and she loves it! Miss 2yo whom I struggle to brush teeth for is a happy participant now and keeps asking to “try” – hehehe. I love the fact that this is all natural and I don’t have to worry when miss 2yo doesn’t want to rinse after brushing. Will definitely be buying this and recommending to other mums!

  1. Starrz24 06/07/2017 at 1:53 pm

Thank you for the orange grin toothpaste. First my four year old brushed his teeth and said it’s yum. Then I brushed my 11 month olds teeth and he didn’t mind it. I like the fact that’s it’s all natural and i am happy using this product for my children. Will definitely purchase in the future and recommend it to others with children.

  1. Chrislean 06/07/2017 at 12:04 pm

With a tiger on the tube of toothpaste this was the best and fastest way to get my 4 year old son to brush his teeth. I told him he now had tiger teeth that needed cleaning.
I must say that the toothpaste is quite runny compared to other brands of toothpaste, this may cause children to use too much and the tube will be finished much quicker than expected. It took use to getting very little froth, but I see this as a good thing as it means its 100% natural.
Here’s the review from my 7 year old son: Yum, well it tastes alright to start with, but each time it gets yummier and yummier. I like the tiger on the front. It’s easy for me to squeeze out all by myself”.
I will definitely be buying this again, and our while family are using it, as I rather like it myself.

  1. VionaG 06/07/2017 at 10:54 am

SO happy when I received the orange flavour yesterday and my kids try it straight away for brushing at night time. My 6 and 4 years old found Grin really different with the other toothpaste they used to. It doesn’t produce lots of soda like other toothpaste. My 2 years old love the toothpaste and brushing his teeth is so much easier. I try Grin toothpaste as well of course and love the feeling of squeaky clean on my teeth. The fact that GRIN is all natural makes this the winner in my opinion, definitely recommended this product for our young ones 

  1. Babykiwies 05/07/2017 at 9:30 pm 

We received the strawberry Grin toothpaste yesterday. I didn’t even knew I was selected to review this amazing product. Our 3 year old was there when the package arrived & couldn’t wait to see what inside. When I opened the package for him told him what it was . He got very excited to try it want to try then & there. He loves his new toothpaste.
That night brushing his was breeze . In morning he surprised me by saying he wants brush his teeth. Before if we said it’s teeth brushing time. Answer was big No most of the time. But not any more Thanks to Grin toothpaste.
He loves strawberry flavour.
As a mum I love the fact that grin toothpaste is made 100% natural ingredients & doesn’t contain any sugar or add artificial flavours or no harsh abrasive.
Even dad loves the new toothpaste when he accidentally try it thinking it was adult toothpaste.
Really appreciate the opportunity to review this amazing product that made in New Zealand.
Also very thankful to make our teeth brush time fun & hassle free.
I will buy grin toothpaste again in future. Also will recommend great GRIN toothpaste to everyone.

  1. Nessee1305/07/2017 at 8:25 am

Whoop whoop whoop yahoo didn’t even know I was on the trial, our Strawberry GRIN toothpaste arrived yesterday arvo. My youngest daughter couldn’t wait to rip open the courier bag… soon as the box was opened, by her of course!!!! The silver tab had to be pulled off n a trial had to happen then n there. Hmm yummmmy Mum it smells soooo tasty I wanna try it. Tiny bit on her finger and ooh ooh yessssss yessssss was her reply.. a Definite Hit, Instant Hit. Hard hard to get her to brush her teeth most days. Let’s hope this is a Huge incentive to help her get on the road to healthier teeth n gums… will update more later when she has used it for a couple of days.. but sooooo far it’s been a relief for Mummy that she wants to brush and more than once a day now, pheww you saved my life #Grin

  1. Mtbfinally04/07/2017 at 8:58 pm

Our Orange Grin Toothpaste arrived today and master 1 and I couldn’t wait to try it:) and it was a success!! It tasted nice and he was happy to brush his teeth, he even asked for more toothpaste! Definitely recommend this tasty and natural product 

  1. KellyCarr04/07/2017 at 7:39 pm 

Our Strawberry Grin toothpaste arrived today and my 3 year old was so excited that the toothpaste was strawberry flavoured he ran around the house for about 10 minutes shouting “strawberry toothpaste”
After he had calmed down we went to brush our teeth for the night safe to say that this is a winner because not only did he brush his teeth for the longest I have ever seen him brush his teeth but we had to brush them a second time.
We have tried a few natural toothpastes now but this one by far has all of our votes.
Both of my children loved the taste the little one is 11 months old and he actually sat and let me brush his teeth without a fuss.
We all loved the packaging, it tastes really good (i had to have a try haha) and i love the fact that its all natural. We will definitely be repurchasing this product again we really like.

  1. kellyhellcat 04/07/2017 at 5:42 pm

We received our orange flavour toothpaste today and when I unwrapped it my 4-year old daughter took off straight to the bathroom to brush her teeth (in the afternoon!)

She loved the taste and was really excited when she saw the box. I think the graphics and simple design really appeal to kids. I find the grin branding really appealing too, think it will look good on the shelves, with the added bonus of being all natural!

Ticks all our boxes for sure.
