Title: CHILDREN'S COMBINATION TOOTHBRUSH AND TOOTHPASTE DISPENSER, AND METHOD
Abstract:
A combination toothbrush and toothpaste dispenser, and method, are adapted for use by a child. The dispenser provides an easily actuatable activator that, when operated, discharges a predetermined amount of toothpaste from an orifice. The toothbrush is adapted to automatically lift the toothbrush head off of a support surface to a height near that of the dispenser orifice. As a result, a child may focus on manipulating one item at a time when loading a toothbrush with toothpaste.
