Title: Bob Barker toothbrush for sale on Ebay
Post by: COINBOYNYC on May 30, 2006, 12:56:23 AM
Don't worry, it's not what you think it is.

Here's a photo from the seller's Ebay listing:

And here's a link (http://cgi.ebay.com/BOB-BARKER-TOOTHBRUSH-VINTAGE-NEW-IN-ORIG-PACKG-L-K_W0QQitemZ8426378430QQcategoryZ15687QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) to the actual listing.

I don't think there's any connection to the...

...Bob Barker Company (https://bobbarker.com/web/default.asp) which offers a large inventory of detention supplies to federal, state, and local government agencies, and select businesses.

A toothbrush imprinted with the name "Bob Barker" doesn't fall under my description of "detention supplies."

If the toothbrush had the name of the specific institution in which it was used, I could see a connection, but I don't think there's a "Bob Barker" jail anywhere in the United States...  :-D

I know that this Bob Barker company sells things like soaps, shampoos, toothbrushes, etc. to detention facilities, and most of the time they just label them with "Bob Barker". And two or three times a year, I'll have someone ask me if THE Bob Barker has anything to do with all these supplies that are used in jails and what-have-you (the answer, of course, is no)...

But, I would not be shocked if that toothbrush did come from that Bob Barker company... After all, I can't see where else a Bob Barker toothbrush would come from. :-?

I can vouch that this indeed is a toothbrush from Bob Barker the detention supplier. Some of the clients we used to have had these toothbrushes, as they also sell to state-run facilities for the developmentally disabled in New Jersey.
