Does your child dread brushing their teeth? Now Sunstar’s GUM® brand has come out with the Crayola Light Timer Toothbrush. This great new toothbrush makes brushing fun for kids! It's a fun and colorful toothbrush designed especially to help kids practice better dental hygiene. Haley loves these new toothbrushes!
According to dentists, children don't brush their teeth long enough. Longer brushing aids in more plague removal and a healthier smile. The Crayola Light Timer Toothbrush is available in blue, green, red and yellow. It has colorful lights in the handle that when activated by pushing the button, flash for 60 seconds to encourage kids to brush longer. Recommended by dental hygienists, the toothbrush is said to increase brushing time with the help of its flashing light. The brush also has a suction cup base which Haley thinks is the best! The suction cup base not only makes it fun to stick in a million places, but also helps keep the bristles clean. Haley sticks her toothbrush to the mirror or to the faucet.
Colorful LED lights flash for 60 second intervals to help kids brush longer!

Let it be known that grocery shopping is NOT my forte! I can use all the help I can get. I love gadgets and have wanted a Smart Shopper for some time. I jumped at the opportunity to review one! Plus….you get the chance to win one!
I love the simplicity of this clever little machine! Nice clear buttons make it easy for reading and understanding. The Smart Shopper takes 4 double A batteries and comes with 3 rolls of printing paper and mounting hardware if you want it somewhere other than your refrigerator. Otherwise, it’s magnetic and sticks to the frig perfectly!
Here’s how it works: Simply hit record and say your item. The machine finds the closest 3 matches and allows you to choose which one you want to select. Using your arrow keys, highlight your choice and click select and it’s added! If you have a coupon, you can also tell it that so that you’ll have a little icon reminding you that you have a coupon for that item. Yes, yes, yes……I love my coupons!
The Smart Shopper comes with over 2,500 grocery items that it recognizes. Another great feature is that you can program you own items in as well. I love the fact that it separates and organizes your grocery list by department. No more running from the check out to the back of the store for one forgotten item.
Giveaway: Post a comment telling me how this gadget would make your life easier. For an extra chance to win, click here to enter these more giveaways. Comment back letting me know what giveaways you entered. Please be sure to leave your email address so I can contact you. Ends 3/16/09.
