New GUM Star Wars Toothbrushes!

Dads know that it can be a challenge to get kids to brush their teeth, and many may struggle to find ways to encourage their children to brush. According to a recent U.S. survey, nearly 90 percent of dentists agree that toothbrushes featuring easy to recognize characters can help motivate children to brush their teeth. The new line of GUM® Star Wars™ toothbrushes are the perfect motivation for any Star Wars fan, and can help get kids excited about brushing with Anakin Skywalker™, Yoda™, Darth Vader™ and Clone Captain Rex™. As Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace in 3D is now in theaters, this is the perfect time to offer you the opportunity to try these toothbrushes before they’re in stores.

Not all toothbrushes are the same. GUM® Star WarsTM toothbrushes are recommended by dental professionals and come in unique character designs that make brushing fun:

  • GUM® Star WarsTM LightsaberTM Toothbrush – Nearly 90 percent of dentists say that most of their pediatric patients don’t brush long enough. This lightsaber-shaped toothbrush flashes for 60-second intervals to help train kids to brush longer and ensure better oral health. Available in three character designs, color-coordinated lights illuminate the entire brush in colors specific to each character’s lightsaber: blue for Anakin Skywalker™, green for Yoda™ and red for Darth Vader™.

  • GUM® Star WarsTM Power Toothbrush – Available in two of your child’s favorite characters, Darth Vader™ and Clone Captain Rex™, this battery-operated power toothbrush features ultra-soft oscillating bristles that gently massage gums and teeth. Nearly all dentists surveyed agree that a power toothbrush like this one may make it easier for your child to brush properly.

  • GUM® Star WarsTM Manual Toothbrush Twinpack – Makes brushing fun with its colorful character-inspired design including brushes representing: Anakin Skywalker™, Yoda™, Darth Vader™ and Clone Captain Rex™.

  • Michael A. Ignelzi, Jr., D.D.S., PhD stresses that the dental habits children learn at a young age impact their overall dental health as they get older, and has made it his personal mission to help educate parents and kids about the importance of good oral healthcare and establishing proper life-long preventive care habits. Dr. Ignelzi is available for interviews to discuss his top 5 tips for ensuring your child has a healthy smile, as well as tricks to help you help your child to brush like a Jedi™.

I also want to let you know that GUM® is currently hosting the GUM® Brush Like a Jedi™ sweepstakes on their Facebook page,, and we would love if you would share it with your readers. GUM® will be giving away GUM® Star Wars™ toothbrush prize packs every day for the next 30 days.

My Take on the Product
These were such great toothbrushes! My favorite had to be the light-saber toothbrush that blinks red for one minute to let the child know when they should stop brushing. This was definitely a nice feature as most children do not know how long they should be brushing and this provides this. On top of this though the other two brushes were also a ton of fun for the Star Wars fanatic! If you love Star Wars these are the toothbrushes for you!
