Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0001] (a) Field of the Invention

[0002] The invention relates to a labeled toothbrush capable of indicating personal information, and more particularly, to a labeled toothbrush indicating personal information that displays personal information at the handle thereof using a transparent tube as a stuffing column member thereof inserted into the handle.

[0003] (b) Description of the Related Art

[0004] Toothbrushes are commodities for dental care in everyone's daily life, and a bristle and a handle of an existing toothbrush are generally formed as an integral. To avoid orally transmitted diseases, everyone has an exclusive toothbrush. However, models and colors of present toothbrushes are rather too similar for distinguishing them from one another, especially for people who live in a community such as schools, sports teams or group tours. If one uses someone else's toothbrush for personal dental care, one is prone to feel agitated. Therefore, a toothbrush on which a name can be written has been developed, wherein the handle thereof is designed as a hollow tube for placing a card with a name written on it, and a small cover is used for sealing the opening thereof, and thus the toothbrush achieves an identification purpose. Nevertheless, the cover and the contact area of the cover and the handle thereof are too small that the toothbrush is insecure during usage and further looses the functions intended.

[0005] Therefore, the design in accordance with the invention is provided to overcome the above shortcomings. The invention relates to a labeled toothbrush, and more particularly, to a labeled toothbrush capable of indicating the user's name and other personal information. The labeled toothbrush in accordance with the invention comprises a hollow tube as a housing and a stuffing column member labeled with information for inserting into the hollow tube.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0006] An object of the invention is to provided a toothbrush capable of labeling the user's name and other personal information, wherein the handle of the toothbrush is a transparent and hollow tube for housing a stuffing column member further provided with a label portion for labeling the user's name and other personal information, thereby avoiding misuses or misplacements.
