Flashing LED Teeth, retail $14.95* (www.orientaltrading.com...)

This is a set of flashing LED teeth that are meant to be worn on Halloween as part of your Halloween costume.

They are made out of a soft plastic compound designed not to cause pain or injury when you put them in your mouth, and use four colored LEDs that rapidly flash in a pseudo-random fashion.

* Price of $14.95 is for 12 units; this works out to a price of ~$1.25 apiece.


The flashing LED teeth are ready to go as soon as you remove them from the package.

To turn them on or off, press & release the black button you see in the center of the product at the center of its underside.

See that black thing near the center of the middle segment?
That's the switch.

Put them in your mouth; teeth facing down, and press them onto your upper teeth.
They are apparently designed for children's mouths, as they are too small to fit an adult's mouth.

According to the packaging, you should douche them off thoroughly before & after first use and after each subsequent use.

This product appears to be disposable, so I don't have battery changing instructions for you today.

This is a set of flashing teeth meant to be used on Halloween, not a flashlight meant to be used every day, carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't throw them against the wall, stomp on them, run over them with a 450lb Celebrity (a motorised wheelchair), swing them against the concrete floor of a patio, bash them open to check them for candiosity, fire them from the cannonada (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout or with a handheld wand), send them to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon them punishments that I might inflict upon a flashlight. So this section of their web page will be SIGNIFICANTLY more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

11 of the 12 units functioned properly; the 12th unit didn't turn on at first, then came on by themselves a moment later but dimmer than the others, indicative of partially expired batteries.

It has been brought to my attention that users of this product may be exposing themselves to lead from solder; however, this is ***NOT*** the case, as the circuit board is totally covered - the unit is even washable with water. So you need not worry about it.

A Star Trek: Voyager episode was playing on the boob tube when this was recorded;
the product is not sound-sensitive, so the sound may be ignored or muted if desired.

Test units were purchased at the Oriental Trading website on 08-19-07, and arrived on the afternoon of 08-27-07.

Product was made in China.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
