HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE – GUM Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush

Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush


I’ve always thought that tooth brushing habits are formed at very young ages. There’s no better time to teach children how to brush well. CJ doesn’t mind brushing but sometimes he’s in such a hurry to do something else that he’ll want to rush out of the room. I know that effective brushing should take more than ten seconds no matter if you’re an adult or child.  The Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush has helped CJ understand that he needs to stay in there and be brushing until the light goes off at least once.

About the GUM Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush

The GUM Crayola Timer Light toothbrush is a unique toothbrush that lights up for 60 seconds encouraging children ages 4-11 to brush for the recommended time by dentists – 60 seconds or longer. In addition to being educational, the toothbrush is fun and easy to use, and resembles a Crayola marker. With bright, fun colors that light up, children will look forward to brushing their teeth.

Features include:

  • Dome Trim® bristles remove plaque more effectively.
  • Colorful, ultra-soft bristles are gentle on childrens’ teeth and tissues.
  • Narrow, tapered head is comfortable in small mouths and just right for 4-11 year olds.
  • Two color coordinated lights illuminate the entire brush.
  • Suction cup base reduces counter clutter and helps keep bristles cleaner.
  • Crayola™ brand appeals to boys and girls.
  • Available in four fun colors – red, blue, green and yellow.

To help get parents and children excited about keeping their teeth healthy and clean while having fun, Sunstar has created a YouTube channel: If you have a great story that you’d like to share about how the toothbrush has helped with your teeth brushing routine, please post a video of you and your little ones. Also, please visit for tips and suggestions about children’s dental health.

  1. My kids are always rushing to get done brushing! I try using an egg timer or a song on the radio.

  2. My daughter doesn’t hurry, but she doesn’t spend the time brushing her teeth very well. Usually she’s making faces at herself in the mirror and checking out her teeth.

  3. yes, my son is 3 and has no clue on what 5 secdonds is vs. 60 seconds…. this would be perfect for him because it would be self-correcting (light didn’t go out) instead of Mom telling him/correcting him to keep brushing. I would love to win the GUM Crayola Timer Light Toothbrush.

  4. I have to brush her teeth first (she’s 2 1/2) then I let her ‘brush’ – so no, she doesn’t hurry, unless she just doesn’t want to be brushing at all, which of course happens with a 2 year old, too! thanks

  5. All of my 6 kids rush (ed) when brushing. I think this is ingenious!!! Making it fun will lead to better brushing I think!!! EVen my 10 year old would love this or my little grandson. Crayola is always coming up with new fun stuff!!

  6. My son is a quick brusher but my toddler would brush her teeth all day long if I let her. She’s strange like that.

  7. I wouldnt say they hurried…but they probably don’t brush as long (or thorough) as I would like.

  8. Yes, my grand daughter hurries, as soon as she has eaten all the toothepaste she thinks she is done!

  9. my son is 2…so not only does he hurry..he pretty much thinks putting the toothbrush in…biting on it and pulling it out is brushing….i love the timer!

  10. Great idea to be sure that enough brushing happens. Now they should make one for adult men–any thooughts on an enticing design?
