The Firefly Star Wars Light Saber
With the inevitable blockbuster Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hitting theaters this weekend, I thought it would be a fitting time to give my professional opinion on this 1.6 oz toothbrush.
Firefly, Reach, and Disney have teamed up to bring you their latest line of toothbrushes that will make morning and nighttime brushing routines fun. Firefly offers several different character themes to include Yoda, Kylo Ren, Obi Wan, Rey, and Darth Vader.
Firefly thought of several different features that will make this an attractive “toy” to children:
- Real Voice Sound Effects
- Lights Up like a Light Saber
- Ergonomic Handle
- Soft DuPont Tynex Bristles
- Variety of Characters
All these features create value by encouraging children to create healthy brushing habits.
Although this toothbrush has several features, here a few considerations:
- One Minute Timer
- Finite Life – Battery Not Replaceable
There are numerous Star Wars Toothbrush alternatives available at a lower price. Additionally, this toothbrush will become more of a toy, than what it is made for; leading to a limited life span and defeating its intended purpose of brushing your child’s teeth. Finally, the toothbrush timer should have been two minutes instead of one.
Who is The Firefly Star Wars Light Saber for?
This Firefly Star Wars Light Saber Toothbrush is for Jedis young and old. The size of the toothbrush head is more appropriate for children ages 3 – 8. However, adults with limited opening jaws and teenagers in braces can benefit from a smaller toothbrush head.
My Final Opinion of The Firefly Star Wars Light Saber
At the end of the day, I am a pediatric dentist and must look past the features and give a realistic opinion. Honestly, all one needs to have sufficient brushing habits is a mechanical toothbrush with soft bristles. However, I can appreciate the fun this toothbrush would bring back to morning and nighttime routines.
This would be a great option for parents that can afford this toothbrush. It would encourage children to want to brush their teeth, but it may have poor longevity from overuse as a toy.

I recommend the Firefly Star Wars Light Saber Toothbrush with limited reservation and feel it can help an uncooperative child be a good Jedi Kight that brushes their teeth.
May The Force be with you in your decision!
