Museum's exhibit looks back at teeth-related toys
Updated: 12/29/2010 11:00:07 AM
 

Families can see a dental care toothbrush inspired by Evel Knievel in exhibit The time may be right for a family trip to Baltimore, Maryland to see an exhibit dedicated to past toys and products inspired from dental care.

The National Museum of Dentistry has always been a hub for visitors interested in the dental history of the country and its current special exhibit is no different.

"Open Wide! Toys that Made Us Smile" is open through January 30, 2011 and showcases more than 50 items that all have something to do with teeth, dental care or dental health. Included in the collection are Cabbage Patch dolls from the 1980s with teeth, the popular board game Hungry Hippos and an Evel Kneivel battery-operated toothbrush.

"Many of these tooth-related toys are rare windows into our past, while others are still being played with by kids (and adults) today," said Jonathan Landers, executive director of the museum. "They all show the creative ways we’ve encouraged children to care for their teeth over the years."

Finding creative ways to inspire children and young adults to care for their teeth is an important campaign that has been taken up by dentists and health professionals around the country. Poor dental care can lead to serious conditions such as tooth decay, halitosis and heart disease.
