Star Wars Toothbrushes, thanks to GUM + a giveaway! US and Canada

My 3 boys love when they get to do reviews for me.
They kind of sighed when I said, "hey, new toothbrushes", but then.. they saw them!

Star Wars sometimes rules our house. Especially if hubby is involved!

When I was presented with the opportunity to review Star Wars toothbrushes, I jumped at the chance.
We try to change our toothbrushes every 45 days. My boys are hard brushers and while I know they are clean boys, You know, Sometimes they put their little dirty fingers in their mouths after playing outside, and well.. YUCK!

GUM has released these great Star Wars toothbrushes with the re-release of the Star Wars movies.

2 of the toothbrushes I received are manual toothbrushes. Now these are what my children use regularly and are most familiar with. I try to always make their brushing experience fun by allowing them the opportunity to choose their own toothbrushes. It's makes them personal and they feel more like brushing when they've gotten to choose their own style.

Now, I can say that all of my boys have issues with brushes for the recommended 1 minute. Especially my 2 year old. He's still trying to get the hang of it all, even though he's brushed his teeth for a year.

But mostly, my 9 year old really needs the most help. The smaller boys really watch him and it's important that he set a good example.

So the smaller boys have the manual toothbrushes and my oldest has the Light saber toothbrush.
The light saber toothbrush flashes for 60 seconds, which is the recommended time frame.
Yes, there were tears shed and complaining that I gave him the flashy one, as it was called.

If you have questions about Oral Care, definitely check out the GUM website. I have linked the Youth/Teens section here

As a special Thank You, GUM is offering an online coupon code for you! These toothbrushes are not yet in stores, but you can buy them on the GUM website.

Now, since I did receive 4 toothbrushes but only have 3 boys, I debated on who gets what and how to have them not fight over these.
I spoke at length with my 9yo, who had many great suggestions, all in his favor, of course.

We [meaning I] ultimately decided to put the AWESOME Captain Rex Power toothbrush up for a giveaway. You cannot purchase this toothbrush on the website and these are not out in the stores until the Spring.

One winner will receive this great toothbrush!
