Crayola Squeeze-A-Color Toothpaste comes in a variety pack of child-friendly tubes (1.5 oz. each) with three non-staining colors and three yummy flavors – Blueberry Burst (blue), Melon Blast (red) and Jazzy Apple (green) – to keep children interested in the brushing experience. Safe for use by children ages 2+, the three colors and flavors empower kids to get creative by choosing and mixing them as they wish. The patent-pending small nozzle cap design of the tubes helps to reduce toothpaste messes and wasted product, while also teaching proper toothpaste dosing. GUM

Crayola Squeeze-A-Color Toothpaste is not only fun to use, it also provides the dentist-recommended fluoride parents depend on, including a low-abrasive formula which gently cleans while strengthening young teeth and helping to prevent cavities.

“Getting kids to brush their teeth is always a challenge,” says Richard Demke, DDS, Senior Director of Technology & New Product Development at Sunstar Americas, Inc. “With the unique flavors and patent-pending design of GUM Crayola Squeeze-A-Color Toothpaste, children will be inspired to find the fun in building healthy oral care habits and brushing will finally be a less stressful part of every parent’s day.”

“I am truly excited about the launch of GUM Crayola Squeeze-A-Color Toothpaste because there is finally a tool to help parents reduce the twice daily brushing battle with their kids,” says Tammy Gold, GUM Crayola Parenting Expert. “Parents can now turn the common fight about brushing into a fun activity. By allowing kids to select their color and flavor they can assert their independence and creativity, while making the brushing experience a positive, inspiring and empowering moment. Something that was once a boring and powerless situation, is now fun and in their control.”
