Animal Toothbrush Holder
The suction cup actually works
We have the giraffe for my 15 mo old and the dino for my 3 year old. We have them installed on the bathroom mirror so the kids can get them out and put them away themselves. The 15 mo old loves to brush her teeth so this thing gets quite the workout. They have not yet managed to pull them off the mirror yet (since getting them as stocking stuffers at christmas) despite lots of tugging.
The little doors open easily when they pull on the toothbrush handle and it closes with an exciting snap! when the toothbrush is pushed back in. The only difficulty is when it gets accidentally closed before the brush gets put back in. There is a tiny tab on the door to open it, but my daughter has a hard time with it and complains when I do it.
These holders are cute and colorful, keep the toothbrushes off the sink (and floor!) and allow the kids to help put things away.

Purchased the panda for a stocking stuffer for a 12 year old. That one worked so well that I bought the giraffe for myself. My twelve year old has had it for about 4 months now. The suction cups have only had to be stuck up again only once. Unlike other reviewers, we have had no problem keeping it clean, but perhaps that is because a 12 year old is better at rinsing the toothbrush than younger kids.

toothbrushes within reach
This was great to stick to the wall so my toddlers could reach their own toothbrushes and put their own toothbrushes away. (They were crawling up on the bathroom counter in precarious positions in order to put their toothbrushes away before we got these.)
The kids can take ownership of their toothbrushes - my daughter's brush is always in the panda, my son's is always in the dog.
The downside is the damp air inside the dark animal body - the toothbrushes don't dry as quickly as if they were out in the open like a traditional toothbrush holder. I have to clean them often to keep on top of mold growth & toothpaste build-up inside.

Cute and Motivational!
I bought two of these for each of my kids and they stick right on the bathroom mirror. It's a great reminder for the kids to brush their teeth and we can tell if they did or not if the holder/brush is wet. It's also great not to have the toothbrushes lying on the sink or in a dirty cup.
