The bristles are also colored to match the player's uniform. The Athletic Spinbrush has an elastic strap on the back for better grip for the handicapped children. Another feature is the clear cap for covering the spin head to prevent the growth of bacteria. It will be battery operated with an on and off button on the front middle portion of the Spinbrush.

  • VII. BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • It was May of 1991 when I was joking around with a friend, at his mom's dinner table, saying that he had everything of Michael Jordans but a toothbrush. That's when I thought why not mold the whole handle to look like a famous athlete instead of having a sticker of cartoon characters on the handle.
  • VII. BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • Molding the handle of a toothbrush to look like your favorite sports athlete will definitely encourage children and young adults to practice oral hygiene regularly. Young people look up to famous athletes as role models.
