Stormtrooper Toothbrush Review

Do you have issues getting your children to brush their teeth? Do YOU dislike brushing your teeth? Fear not Star Wars fans, the new Stormtrooper toothbrush will help turn ‘brush time into play time’! The fine folks over at Firefly (no, not the space ship or the movie) sent us a couple of their brushes, and I have to say my teeth have been sparkling white and clean (almost like new Stormtrooper armor) ever since! Have I laid on the puns thick enough yet? No? Well, it’s like this toothbrush targets cavities and plaque like Stormtroopers do Rebels! Okay, okay, I should probably stop….

In all seriousness though, I do wish this had existed in my childhood, as these new Firefly Star Wars 3D Stormtrooper Toothbrushes would have made my bedtime brushing routine a lot more imaginative!

Firely Storm Trooper Toothbrush

This toothbrush is marked for ages 3 – 12, but we all know as Star Wars fans that it’s more like 3 – 105. (Hey, when 900 years old we are, need more dental care, we will.) The toothbrush is available at Target, Walmart, and Walgreens, and I imagine you can find it online as well.

It has soft bristles for those of us with sensitive gums, and the coloring of the whole toothbrush matches the Stormtrooper theme.

I love the fact that they stand upright even outside of the package. (I have a pet peeve about toothbrushes getting dirty when I set them down on sinks. Especially hotel sinks.)

Firefly plans on releasing other Star Wars toothbrushes as well, including Kylo Ren, and characters from other properties and franchises. They have lightsaber toothbrushes as well, and they make the number one selling kids toothbrush line, the Ready Go, which is available in Yoda, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper and BB-8 versions.

The brush has the feel of an action figure with a full Stormtrooper set on the front end.

I’ll admit I was amused by the idea of a Stormtrooper toothbrush, and so I do believe that parents who legitimately have issues getting their kids to accept brush time could use this to make brushing teeth fun. I’ve known several young children who associate brushing teeth with discomfort because of their teething, and I think this would be helpful in getting them over the idea that brushing teeth is unpleasant.

Happy brushing, and may the force be with you.
