Abstract

The present invention relates to a toothbrush, comprising a grip part (1) and a front head region (2) provided on the grip part (1), on the upper side of which teeth cleaning elements are provided, characterized in that on the outside on the grip part (1) at least one extends longitudinally of the handle part (1) extending recess (3) is provided, which is for receiving a in the recess (3) positively and / or non-positively clamped and / or retractable cover (4) is formed.

Description

  • Technical area
  • The present invention relates to a novel toothbrush, comprising a grip part and a front head region provided on the grip part, on the upper side of which tooth cleaning elements are provided. In particular, the present invention relates to a toothbrush which can (also) be used as an advertising medium.
  • State of the art
  • Toothbrushes are known in the prior art in a variety of embodiments. Particular attention is paid to toothbrush manufacturers' external appearance, as the aesthetic shape of consumer articles is known to exert a particularly promotional effect on the consumer. Toothbrushes are known in the market, for promotional purposes and to increase the incentive of brushing teeth due to their shape achieve a special optical effect or where funds are attached, which develop a special visual effect.
  • Toothbrushes are also known from the prior art, which are equipped with a hollow chamber provided in the handle part, in which a variety of utensils such as toothpaste can be introduced. Thus, it has recently been known to press toothpaste by means of a corresponding mechanism from the hollow chamber via a channel or the like to the tooth cleaning elements. Theoretically, it would also be possible to introduce advertising into this hollow space in the case of a transparent design of the grip part, but there is the disadvantage that a hollow chamber in a grip part is very expensive to produce and is therefore associated with a high cost, so that the toothbrush is used only to a limited extent for advertising purposes could.
  • Presentation of the invention
  • The present invention is based on the object to provide a toothbrush which is suitable to be used as an advertising medium and is also inexpensive to manufacture.
  • According to the invention the above object is achieved with the features of claim 1. Advantageous embodiments of the toothbrush according to the invention are specified in subclaims.
  • Thereafter, a toothbrush of the type mentioned is characterized in that on the outside of the handle part at least one extending in the longitudinal direction of the handle portion recess is provided, which is formed for receiving a recess in the recess positively and / or non-positively clamped and / or retractable cover.
  • The recess must in principle be formed only a few millimeters deep in order to accommodate, for example, the cover provided with an advertisement or a cover which is inserted into the recess, inserted or otherwise introduced. In the latter embodiment, the cover is expediently made transparent.
  • Most preferably, the recess extends from the free end of the handle portion in the direction of the head portion, so that the recess is freely accessible from the handle end. In this particular embodiment of the handle part, the recess has on both sides extending noses.
  • The cover is also formed in this embodiment in its lateral edge regions such that the cover with the recess enters into a positive and / or non-positive connection. For this purpose, the cover is preferably inserted from behind into the recess, wherein at least the side regions of the cover are configured such that they are clamped positively below the noses.
  • Particularly advantageously, the handle part and the recess or its edge region and the cover inserted into the recess are formed such that the adjoining wall sections of the handle part or the recess and the cover flush each other, flat and sealing. The advantage of this design is on the one hand in the necessary hygiene of the toothbrush, since collect in the adjoining parts no cleaning residues, on the other hand, this design also serves the convenience of handling the handle.
  • Brief description of the drawings
  • Other objects, features, advantages and applications of the toothbrush according to the invention will become apparent from the following description of an embodiment with reference to the drawings. All described and / or illustrated features, alone or in any combination form the subject matter of the invention, regardless of the summary in individual claims or their dependency.
  • In the drawings show
  • 1 the toothbrush in the back view;
  • 2 the toothbrush in perspective rear view;
  • 3 the toothbrush in the bottom view;
  • 4a the cover in perspective front view;
  • 4b the cover in the side view;
  • 4c the cover in the rear view;
  • 4d the cover in top and bottom view;
  • 5a the fixing in the side view;
  • 5b the fixing element in the bottom view;
  • 5c the fixing in the upper view;
  • 5d the fixing in a further side view.
  • Embodiment of the invention
  • 1 shows the toothbrush in the rear view in a particularly advantageous embodiment. How out 1 can be seen, the handle part 1 two opposite and in the longitudinal direction of the handle part 1 extending recesses 3 on which to take in the recesses 3 positive clamping and retractable covers 4 are formed. Both recesses 4 are each on both sides with longitudinal noses 5 provided, which the end of the handle part 1 retractable covers 4 hold positively (see 3 ).
  • The recesses 3 are preferably trapezoidal, with the lugs provided on both sides 5 most preferably substantially the same length (ie equiangular) are formed and the recesses 3 thus are formed isosceles.
  • How out 4d can be seen, accordingly, the covers 4 one of the recesses 3 adapted isosceles trapezoidal shape.
  • The cover 4 is essentially flat and designed transparent. For example. can so in the recesses 3 a thin preferably with an advertisement z. B. printed paper leaflet. Inserted film or other suitable flat material and with the cover 4 be tightly covered, like out 2 Obviously on both sides on the handle part 1 , so that the advertising when brushing teeth both back and front is to see.
  • In a further embodiment, the covers 4 back or front with an advertisement and / or a z. B. designerischen motif be provided. The advantage of removable covers 4 In this respect, it also means that the motifs and thus the toothbrush can be individually designed.
  • In a particularly advantageous embodiment of the invention is one of the 5a - 5d apparent fixing element 6 for fixing the covers 4 intended.
  • Like from the 1 and 2 Obviously, those are the noses 5 provided side margins 1a ; 1b of the grip part 1 extended at the end. Between the extensions that will be out of the 5a - 5b apparent fixing element 6 inserted the covers 3 fixed. The fixing element 6 is designed in its shape that it form-fitting in the extended side panels 1a ; 1b fits.
  • In a further embodiment, not shown, the fixing element 6 the handle part 1 also cover the entire surface at the ends.
  • For fixing the fixing element 6 are also pins 7 provided in corresponding corresponding openings 8th on the handle part 1 be inserted [see 3 ].
  • As a material for the production of the toothbrush comes in addition to other plastics primarily polypropylene (PP) into consideration, since this is a very hard, solid and mechanically durable plastic. As material for the production of the covers 4 Polycarbonate (PC) is particularly suitable, since this plastic is in principle transparent and colorless, but this plastic can also be dyed in all shades.
  • The toothbrush according to the invention is not limited in its execution to the above-mentioned preferred embodiments. Rather, a variety of design variations are possible, which make use of the solution shown even with fundamentally different type of execution.
