Tangle Pets are small hairbrushes with stuffed animals attached that can be fun for kids of all ages and will work well with all hair types. They've been designed with long-haired girls in mind, but boys and girls with shorter hair will be able to use them effectively, too. These brushes have bristles that are longer than average, and they'll flow smoothly through any head of hair to get rid of tangles, regardless of whether the hair is wet or dry.
The cost of Tangle Pets is $14.99 plus $4.99 shipping, for a total price of $19.98. Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: tanglepets.com
Many hairbrushes have short bristles that tend to get caught in hair, especially if your hair is wet or tangled. However, Tangle Pets brushes have long bristles that operate by virtue of wet/dry technology, which means they'll glide gently through hair that's completely dry, just a bit damp or soaking wet. Meanwhile, the easy-grip stuffed animal design will help any user hold onto their brush so it doesn't slide out of their hand as it removes tangles.
When selecting a Tangle Pets brush, you'll be able to choose between seven different characters, including a ladybug, cat, puppy, unicorn, shark, dolphin, and bunny. These characters come with names, but of course, you can change the name of yours if you choose. You may want to select a different character from your siblings or friends so you'll eventually be able to own the whole set as a group.
The stuffed animal character attached to each brush is made of high-quality soft plush that will feel good against your hand( s ) as you hold onto it and brush your hair.
These brushes are so small—smaller than standard stuffed animals—that you'll be able to take one with you almost anywhere, even if you're only carrying a small handbag. One may serve as a nice reminder of home when you're staying at a hotel or a friend or relative's house.
You'll be able to safely run your Tangle Pets brush through the washing machine without detaching the stuffed animal from the bristles in any manner.
These brushes can be fun to use with a group of friends or family members, since after you brush your hair together, you may want to play pretend with your animal characters. If at least one person in the group has each character out of the seven, your game will likely become even more fun than it would be otherwise.
Since the Tangle Pets brushes will pass through any type of hair gently and smoothly, they won't rip out hair or otherwise damage it. The gentleness of these brushes will definitely come in handy if you're brushing the hair of a child who tends to scream when they experience any pain.
One of these brushes will have only a limited number of flat bristles, so possible styling effects, such as those that require a round brush, may not be workable. This might not matter to some users, but girls who enjoy wearing fancy hairstyles may find it a limitation and may need to introduce another brush into their routine.
While these hairbrushes will likely appeal to almost all children of elementary school age, they may not appeal to teenagers. A teen may feel that they're too old to have a stuffed animal attached to their brush, even if the brush works well.
After you've obtained one or more Tangle Pets brushes, you probably won't need to pester any children under your care to have their hair brushed for as long as usual. Instead, they may find one of these brushes so fun that they sit down immediately for a hair-brushing. Since the brushes work so well on wet hair, you won't need to wait for a child's hair to dry to brush it, either.
The cuteness of Tangle Pets makes children eager to brush their hair.
Some brushes have large handles, which makes it difficult and uncomfortable to grip for a small child. The Tangle Pets has a small plush stuffed animal as the handle, which lets a child grip it comfortably.
The brush appears just as effective as other hairbrushes, only cuter. With long hair, you might need to comb through a few times, but that is not an uncommon process with any hair styling tool.
Many hairbrushes are intended for different types of hair. If you have curly, straight, thin, or thick, you often have a brush for each type. The Tangle Pets brush works on all types of hair, so as your child grows and their hair gets thicker or turns to curls, you won't have to invest in a different hairbrush.
Hairbrushes directed at children do not have these cute creatures attached. Most hair brushes designed with kids in mind are plastic in fun and bright colors that are not comfortable to hold. It's hard, if not impossible, to find a brush like Tangle Pets anywhere on the market.
The popularity of this brush has made it hard to buy. The official site reports they are out of stock, and you cannot find it from other online retailers. On the official site, you can sign up for an email list to be notified when it is in stock. There is no indication if it is sold in stores.
If for any reason you are not satisfied with your Tangle Pet or ordered one that your child doesn't like, you can return it for a full refund. However, you must pay for postage and any fees incurred will not be refunded.
The cost of Tangle Pets is a little higher than regular hairbrushes, however, it is an original design and it is hard to find any other brush like this.
While the brush costs a little more than other hairbrushes, if your child likes Tangle Pets, you won't have to continually search for the perfect hairbrush. Testing hairbrushes from different companies can add up and it may take several tries and fights to get the right one. However, Tangle Pets is cute and child-friendly, so the chances are good you won't have to test any more brushes.
Long hair almost always gets tangled. Even though Tangle Pets is effective at brushing hair, using conditioner or a leave-in conditioning spray will help the process.
If there is a big tangle at the bottom of the hair, gently grip the top piece so you don't pull too hard on the child's head. You want to make sure that the child doesn't think their new Tangle Pet is out to make hair brushing time terrible.
There is no indication of how Tangle Pets would hold up against a hair dryer. It is constructed of long, plastic bristles to be used when wet or dry. However, there are no advertisements, pictures, or statements on the official site that indicate use with a hairdryer. However, most every hairbrush works well with a hair dryer, so this concern is minimal at best.

I let my 5 year old daughter choose a Tangle Pet brush. She was super exited. Every morning she talked about the brush as if she could already feel it going through her hair. After a couple of weeks I tracked the order which never even shipped because they were out of stock and was promised that It will arrive within 2 weeks. More than two weeks after, again I had to check status. This time an apology message and a promised to waive the shipping cost if I simply clicked on the reorder tab. I did but it never arrived. Instead they cancelled my order. Of course. Why give me free shipping right? Try explaining that to a 5 year old. It broke my heart to see & hear! Her sadness. I cannot comment on the product since the terrible customer service never gave me the opportunity. Lori Grainer needs to shake things up over there.

The same thing is going on with us for a four year old girl. I had to go on the Customer Service site a few time since February, when we ordered, two different times I had to click the do not cancel button. I finally called Customer Service a few days ago, the lady was polite and told me the next batch was shipping at the end of March or beginning of April. If I knew where it was shipping from it would help to track it but the site still says about the free shipping and if I want to cancel my order.
I have a Tangled Pet. I have rheumatoid arthritis in my hands and this is wonderful on my hands, soft and comfortable to brush my long hair. Thank you Liz!
