Bobble Toothbrush Holder


From the website:



Graphic designer Spencer Sloan's Manhattan digs consisted of a shoebox of an apartment (some 143 square feet!), with inconsequential bathroom counter space.

"My toothbrush had a habit of ending up on the floor (strict deal breaker) or in the toilet (seasonal deal breaker)," he says.

So, inspiration struck.

With a concept in mind, Spencer turned to the invention lab Quirky.

More than 494 Quirky enthusiasts helped shape the final product, and the bright, Weeble Wobble-inspired Bobble Brush holder was born.

Toothbrushes are kept upright.

The wobbling base fits most standard non-electronic brushes, and is weighted and rubberized to keep the Bobble from slithering off a wet counter — no matter how crowded or narrow the surface.

Top and mid sections can be easily twisted and separated for cleaning.

Plastic; 2.4"H x 2.5"Ø at widest.


I wonder if the device's orifice is large enough to accomodate my [left-handed] Radius toothbrush handle.

Or a right-handed Radius, for that matter.

As best I can tell from the photos up top, prolly not.

Wouldn't the floor be the "seasonal" deal breaker and the toilet the "strict" deal breaker? Do people poop less in the spring or did I miss something?

Another Radius fan! You need an entry on those. Didn't even know they had a leftie version. I bought about 8 or 10 a zillion years ago and didn't know they still existed.

I bought about a hundred tiny little neodymium magnets and glue them to everything. They make a great spice rack when bottles are hung from plumbers tape, and I'd do the same to my toothbrush rather than spend $13 on a widget. Surely he could find something to stick it to?
