Geek Mom Reviews: Globrush

Red GloBrush

Red GloBrush

I can’t stand having scummy teeth and bad breath. I can hardly breathe my own air until after I’ve brushed my teeth in the morning! I don’t understand how my kids can skip brushing, whenever they can get away with it!

When I had the chance to try out a new toothbrush geared toward tweens, I was excited. Anything that will get my twelve year old son to brush regularly is a good thing. This is the GloBrush, made by the Arm & Hammer Spinbrush people.

Product description:

Available in three different fun handle designs, this brush is ideal for tweens and allows them to express their unique personalities. The light up color-change timer also makes the brushing experience more fun… and cool again, too.

I gave the GloBrush to my son, along with a pep-talk about how colorful and fun it was going to be to brush his teeth with it! And, he didn’t have to worry about timing himself while brushing, because the GloBrush has a built-in timer. I pressed the “try me” button to demonstrate the light-up handle, and he was off to give it a whirl.

Jake’s report:

Ahhhhhh! It feels like my teeth just had a massage!

He has been using the GloBrush for a couple of weeks now, and he still enjoys it. Usually, he gets over the novelty of these things pretty quickly. So the fact that he’s still using it is wonderful! If you have a child (or a tween, teen, or adult!!) who avoids brushing, give the GloBrush a try. And for extra fun, try brushing in the dark. 🙂 It’s a light show in your mouth!

Disclosure: I received one free GloBrush.

The Geek Zodiac

This is amazing in so many ways. It’s called The Geek Zodiac 2.0, and it’s the creation of James Wright (concept) and Josh Eckert (design). I know you guys like lists and bullet points, so here’s why I think The Geek Zodiac 2.0 is awesome, in list form:

  • It’s clever. It took some thought, and I appreciate people who can think.
  • It’s inclusive. All major classes of geekdom are represented.
  • It’s funny. It’s smart enough that you could take it seriously, but it’s still going to make you giggle.
  • It’s visually appealing. This would be perfect on the wall of your game room, home theater, or comic book library.
  • It’s sincere. It was created by true geeks, as opposed to being manufactured by an advertising company.

Find your birth year in the chart to determine whether you’re a robot, wizard, alien, superhero, undead, pirate, daikaiju, time traveler, spy, astronaut, ninja/samurai, or treasure hunter.
