If you are looking for a creative and useful gift for the kids for the holidays, I am about to solve your problem! Firefly recently came out with a line of Star Wars Lightsaber Toothbrushes! I know what you’re thinking – toothbrushes aren’t exactly what you had in mind as gifts – but seriously, you’re going to want to consider these. I recently got the chance to try them out (okay, I didn’t brush with them, but my 10-year old son did) and he thinks they are the coolest thing since Legos.
We got both the Firefly Star Wars Light Saber Obi Wan Toothbrush and the Firefly Star Wars Lightsaber Darth Vader Toothbrush to test. So basically we had our choice of joining the Rebel Alliance or the dark side. Of course my son chose the dark side. While I’m standing around proclaiming that Han shot first, he thinks it’s much more fun to be a baddie.
These toothbrushes are really cool. They come with the lightsaber cover (red or blue) with the toothbrush color to match. When you press the button on the front, it begins to blink for a full minute. This helps your kids time how long they are brushing. Even better for the kids, the brushes actually play lightsaber sounds on and off during that minute! You also hear Darth Vader say things like “Join me and complete your training” and “Your skills are complete” and Obi Wan say things like “This weapon is your life” and “Goodbye old friend. May the force be with you.” A super fun bonus!
Also, if your kids aren’t fans of standard mouthwashes (my kids find them too “spicy”), Firefly makes a fantastic melon flavored rinse that is extremely easy for the kids to use themselves. The top is a pump, so there is no cap to open, and there is a super secret drawer in the bottom of the rinse that serves as a measuring tool! There are anti-splash guards in it, so that your children can remove the drawer, pump the rinse into it, and then store the drawer again after use. It’s fantastic and my kids love it WAY more than any other rinse I’ve ever tried. If you want to try some for your household, you can find it at Walmart and other stores.
I know that toothbrushes and rinse aren’t usually at the top of the holiday shopping list, but Star Wars is! These are practical and fun gifts that will make everyone happy!
