Please Note: I was invited as media and received a gift bag after the event. No other compensation was received. Views expressed are always 100% my own.

I was invited by Momtrends to the Sunstar G.U.M launch party at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not in Times Square to check out the new toothbrushes and learn more about oral health care for kids.

Kids were invited to participate in games and arts & craft activities while the mommy bloggers got to learn about the product and listen to Dr. Michael Ignelzi, pediatric dentist and orthodontist, give tips to keeping a healthy smile.

Tips for a Healthy Smile
  • Kids should brush their teeth at least twice a day - one in the morning and one at night
  • Parents should talk to their pediatrician or pediatric dentist about the right amount of fluoride to use
  • Avoid giving kids sticky foods and unhealthy snacks - instead give kids snacks like fruit, yogurt or cheese. The Dr. said the worst thing you can give your kid is Fruit Rollups!
  • If white spots develop on a child's teeth, take him/her to a pediatric dentist right away. A white spot is often the first signs of a dental cavity.
  • Should take your kid to his/her first dental visit on their first birthday, first tooth!
So GUM is coming out with 3 different types of Star Wars™ toothbrushes that are all awesome in my opinion. There is the Manual Toothbrush Twinpack, the Lightsaber Toothbrush and the Power Toothbrush. My favorite would be the Lightsaber.

It was quite a fun event for both parents and kids, and at the end of the party, everyone was surprised with a visit from Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper! May the force be with you!
