Pittsburgh Penguins toothbrush

My sister gave this to me a few years ago. I still haven’t gotten around to opening and using it…and I probably never will:

The Slap Shot Hockey Stick Toothbrush, made by a company aptly named Sportbrush, is “Your best shot against tooth decay.” It is a toothbrush that is shaped like a hockey stick, and comes with a black “self adhesive puck holder”, which you would mount on your bathroom wall and use to hold the toothbrush. There’s something ironic about using a puck to hold a hockey stick.)

Other facts you would need to know about this hygiene product:

  • Four top row quality brush
  • Sporty handle allows for firm grip
  • Professionally designed with soft-end rounded bristlesand most importantly
  • RECOMMENDED BY DENTISTS

While the copyright date on the packaging says 1987, this was most likely made in the early or mid 1990s, since it uses the “nineties” Penguins logo. I guess Sportsbrush didn’t update their packaging design all that much throughout the years.

Since I’m not going to open this, I’m not going to write a review. Sorry. I know you are all dying to know how great this toothbrush is. But what am I supposed to say? How the “sporty handle” really gives me the grip I need to clean my teeth? Or go on and on about the self-adhesive quality of the “puck holder”?

Nah. I think some things are left best unsaid.
