This Toothbrush Wobbles, But It Won’t Fall Down.

Guess what everyone I know is getting for Christmas this year.

Why, a DEWS toothbrush, designed by  Ryan and Harc, of course. It’s weighted at the bottom, like a Weeble or a Bozo the Clown inflatable punching bag, so that it will never let the bristles go below the surface. This does three things, I imagine: 1) Keeps everything nice and sanitary, 2) adds some style and weight to otherwise flimsy, boring toothbrushes, and 3) makes it into a toy and is therefore awesome.

“DEWS does away with concerns about whether your toothbrush is resting on an unhygienic surface. This upstanding toothbrush makes use of a weight at the end of its rounded handle to create a centre of gravity at the handle base. When the toothbrush is set down, it will sway momentarily until it reaches a position of balance – much like a tumble doll.”
