Numerous ploys have been created to get kids to brush their teeth:
Bubble Gum flavored toothpaste
Toothbrushes based on cartoon characters
I have a Batman toothbrush, thank you very much. And in saying that, I realize that I fall squarely into the marketing gimmicks used to get kids to brush. And that makes me feel good, because I want to retain all of the "kid" in me that I can.
This being the case, you gotta know that I love these things:
Toothpaste Spread Heads
These caps do exactly what it looks like: replace the existing cap that comes with the tube of toothpaste. In turn you get a little puking animal. I think the little dog barfing toothpaste is just plain cute.
Of course a real dog barfing toothpaste would be... disturbing to say the least.
I can't say the same about the cat, however. It sort'a creeps me out.
That's kind'a scary...
But, I can't deny that this is an innovative gimmick to get kids to brush.
Black Lab Products, LLC, previously hit the market with lids for ketchup and mustard.
I tutor a kid who looks just like this...
While these are much more on the gross side, I find them even more fun than the toothbrush cappers-which try to be a little too cutesy for the kiddies. (See more about the mustard and ketchup lids
So, while the kid in me likes the Spread Heads, I want something more disgusting. I dunno... like a hurling rat or something...
