The one touch tooth paste dispenser thing?

Anyone have it? Can't remember the exact name. You put it on the wall, stick a tube of tooth paste in it then just touch the tooth brush to get it out. Have one? Know someone who does?
Is it worth it or a waste? Kyra wants one, is actually asking for one for Christmas. I was wondering about it before actually buying a "as seen on tv" type thing. Thanks! :-)

  • It does stay clean if you use it right, but my kids were jamming their tootbrushes in there and it got all smeared and gunked up.

  • Its the Touch and Brush. My DD (4 at the time) was dying for one, we got it for her for x-mas last year, lol. Its ok. The kids enjoyed it, and got them excited to brush their teeth, but they quickly made a mess of it. I eventually took it down, but they still ask about it, I may give it another try. How old is your daughter?

  • I remember seeing this on tv. I thought to myself, wow how lazy have we Americans become that we cannot manage to squeeze a tube of toothpaste lol...but on the upside, my ex-dh is handi-cap and has the use of only one arm. I sure would have bought that if we were still not a total waste of money...and as the post above mentioned, if it gets kids excited about brushing that is a good thing.

  • She's 5, will be 6 in February. She has her own half bath in her bedroom that she keeps clean where it would go. Is it easy to use? She has a hard time getting the paste on her brush without getting it all over the counter, and doesn't like putting her brush on the counter. She wouldn't make a deliberate (sp?) mess, she's the one who cleans in there. But is it messy in normal use?

  • Sale, I agree :-) I see no reason for it for a capable adult. Seems it would be good for someone with missing limbs or bad arthritis though. My girl is already loving brushing her teeth she just hates cleaning the mess. :-)
