Oral-B Junior Smart Series for Age 6+ to 11

For 6+ to 11 years old children
As stated on the box, the Junior Smart has been designed with children aged 6+ years and over in mind.

Typically, children need assistance from parents when brushing their teeth up until the age of about 8 years old. But, come 6 years old, routine and probably a bit of parental nagging has kicked in and they are doing a pretty good job themselves.

The Junior Smart offers a product that is still child friendly, but has been refined to be more mature and more ‘cool’ than the bright coloured handles typically applied to younger children’s toothbrushes.

Believe it or not the only thing, from what I can tell, that makes this toothbrush geared to Juniors is the design on the brush handle. It even has the same sized brush head you would find on an adults Oral-B toothbrush.

Children’s mouths at this age are getting larger as they grow and can generally accommodate a larger brush head, but the round head is smaller than most toothbrush heads.

To put it bluntly, the Junior Smart is a repackaged Oral-B Smart 4 4000, which is marketed for adults. The same can be said of the Oral-B Teen. 3 toothbrushes that are technically the same, just small design and box contents differences set them apart.

Junior Smart is really targeting the slightly older children who still like interactive engagement but are more capable and disciplined and want less parental interaction.

If Bluetooth connectivity really is a desire, then the Junior Smart sort of stands on its own, with a more funky brush handle design.
