|There are plenty of Sonic Hygene related items that I don't own. Many of these had a limited release around the USA. It still seems strange that there are so many bath or cleaning items associated with Sonic. Get clean faster!|

|Bath Tub Stickers. These are plastic re-stickable items that are not actually sticky. They'll adhere to any damp or very smooth surface, such as a tile or even a window. These are just stock-arts with an artificial water theme. Sonic is running from a sponge to a soap, and Knuckles is water skii'ing despite looking like he is standing around on the water's surface. And that random Jet Ski Princess Sally again.|
|Here's a close up of the bottle. It says "Finger Puppet With Bubble Bath" and either "Sonic" or "Knuckles" This is from around the time of Sonic & Knuckles.|
|A close up of the Avon Bubble Bath with Knuckles topper. This mini-bust is a finger puppet for use in the tub. You can see the box in the background. There is also a Sonic topper, but it has no bottle photo'd with it. Both can be seen Here. Sonic Gear needs a photo of JUST the Sonic bath topper. Do you have it?|
|Here's the whole thing, bottle & topper all at once. It's behind a ReSaurus figure, which gives a rough estimate of the size of the whole product. (not that large) With this shot you can see how the topper fits on, but has a bit of a wide back due to the can. Photo found by Rae_Logan.|
|Of the 3 Shampoo w/Top, the Sally top is the rarest. Why? She was the least-recognizable character at the time (being Archie Comics & 1 TV Show only) Her topper here though, as you can see is a pretty good likeness with well sculpted hair and a fairly accurate face. She doesn't seem to suffer the same overspray paint errors that Knuckles does above. Photo contributed by Juuni.|
|This is the Sonic puppet/topper. He's in the same armcross position as everyone else, but look...his arms are blue! They have the right color of paint, but clearly chose not to use it. Why let such an error like this happen? Usually only Australia|
|All bath games below were likely sold at Rite-Aid stores. (a pharmacy type place like CVS / Walgreens etc) The liquid should be good inside even after 10+ years. Playing with it in the bath made the label easy to rub off/damage. Info provided by: ShelaFox|
|would keep getting him wrong with blue arms. The topper is well-sculpted though, and seems normal otherwise. Photo & owned by SonicRetro|
|Sonic Bath Bubbles, with Bath Game. You can push the buttons after filling the game with water to help Sonic collect "rings" on little points inside. This is by Kids Choice and says it makes getting clean, fun. This has the Sonic 3D Blast style of art, so was likely from that period. But where was it sold?|
|Here's an interesting one, a Sonic Adventure 1 era shampoo game. Most items were better marketed by that point, but this seems to be an exception. You're still catching rings here, but it has different buttons, and SA art. It says "Cool ###" at the top, but the photo is not that clear.|
|And still another of this 'bath game' stuff! How many different re-takes of this combination soap+mini-game did they make? This one is a Bath Bubbles container. As you can see here, it's pretty much the same design as the others, but with a blue case and 4 buttons. The gameplay of this one is similar to the others, in that you're using the buttons to create currents in the water in the game to catch plastic rings. Photos & info by : Sonikku.|
|The back encourages you to get other Sonic theme bath products, but doesn't tell you what they are. You can see Eggman in the background of this Sonic Adventure 1 picture. This was made by "The Body Care Group" in 2000 The ingredients are rather sophisticated, and include extracts of Aloe Vera, cucumber, sea kelp, green tea and vitamin E in "de-ionized" water."|
|Still more variants on the same 2 bottles of soap.
Here, you can see the smooth (left) and ridged (right) are both being used to contain the same thing: body wash. The left is older, with Sonic & Tails in the Sonic 3 checkered/sphere collecting special stage and the right just having a 3D art of Sonic pulled from SA1.
As usual, each bottle-front contains a little window full of water where you can press the buttons to catch the plastic rings on the poles inside. Interestingly, the left bottle's design looks better put-together than the right one. Photos discovered by calistine.

|More bath bubbles. Or really, the same bath bubbles but this time in an aqua blue plastic container. It has the same background image as the green body wash above, but this time you can see Tails is in the background more clearly. The top says 'kids choice' but no brand really appears. Why did they keep changing the color of this same bottle?|
|Yet ANOTHER variation of the same basic shampoo/bath game bottle. This one is another conditioning shampoo, but it has the SA1 art of Sonic & Knuckles as the background for the rings game. This art is also shared by a wallscroll as are many of the other bottle arts seen on this page. Just how many of these were made... Photo discovered by Berzerker.|
|With their giant handles, these may or may not be mechanical toothbrushes. As you can see, there's a "Boys" and "Girls" design, complete with pink theme and Amy Rose. SoftGrip is not the name of the company, but the type of handle. The photo isn't that close so you can tell well. These Sonic X toothbrushes can be found at Meijers Stores in the USA as of 2007-2008. Meijers is only found in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. Info by #|
|With Sonic X as popular as it is, as well as the rush on 'electric tooth brushes', someone's thought to combine the 2! So here we have the first (known) battery powered Sonic toothbrush. This features most of the cast of Sonic X on the handle, and some art from the show on the back-card. It is official, it has the Sonic X logo at the bottom and on the card. Supposedly this is from America, but it is not known where it's sold.
There may be more than 1 design for this.
|These toothbrushes are the 2nd release of the ones above. Still by the same company and still featuring the same characters and boys/girls theme, these differ because the figures on each one are raised rubber. (see the 'feel me' sticker) The bristles for these also contain glitter for added effect! The bristles match the color of the toothbrush. The plastic is somewhat translucent. These were made by WorldTrends INC. Photographed & owned by Blue Sonikku.|
|Still more bath games and shampoos/body washes. How many of these things did they feel the need to keep on making? It's curious that they varied the design so many times, likely making them more collectible. But where were they found? To have so many releases, they had to have been fairly available and popular as well. Photographed & owned by:|
|This is an advertisement for the Avon Sonic Bath products seen at the top of the page. You would see this in an Avon items catalog around 1995. You can see the terry-cloth type bath plush (8 inches) came with a float-ring and cost $7.99. The stickers were originally 6.99 for the set (though sets can top $50.00 over ebay in the modern era) The shampoos (with toppers) were 5.99 each. It's cool to see how the merchandise was originally presented, and to learn the original prices. Photo by: JL Anderson|
|Only the base of the item has anything to do with Sonic. The toothbrush heads & handle are just blue. The bristle/heads are very un-sophisticated, unlike modern toothbrushes.|
|This is the Sonic the Hedgehog Battery Operated Toothbrush. It must not have been very common, even in the 1990s somewhere, when it was produced. The base is modeled after the Sonic hard rubber play ball (seen on USA sporting goods page) and may even use the same mold. With it MIB like this, you can see that it comes with Sonic base, battery handle, 2 brush heads and a blue cup. Why the cup isn't Sonic branded is unknown. The back of the box shows you how to put the toothbrush together, and into the base. This is an interesting old item. Photos discovered by Calistine|
|Here is a modern battery operated 'power toothbrush'. It's produced by/for Walgreens, so you know that Walgreens is the only store you can buy it out of. The package has plenty of Sonic touches, including thumbs up Sonic X type, the newer ring of stars/jumping design, & some blue checkers. The text just says about how it's "easy hold" & helps get rid of plaque. The tootbrush is nicely themed as well, with 2 Sonic graphics, blue button, and Red/white/blue bristles. There were 2 other designs. Send 'em in for credit if you've seen others similar to this! Photo & owned by AskLiliumLily|
|Still pending are the Avon Sonic line, a few shampoos and plushes for use in the tub. Also: bath games & body wash|
