Please answer these questions only if you answered no question re.    
this product yet, you are living in USA and you are interested in    
flossing for yourself (even if you don't floss frequently or at all   
yet, but you wish to).

Googel - 

This is actually a very interesting product.  I would assume that for
your final website (if you are going to be selling these devices over
the Internet) that you will be moving to your own domain, without
Geocities hosting, etc., and that some of the images will be "cleaned
up"  to appear a bit more professional.  If you do this, I think you
have a viable product.  To address your points individually:

1.  With about three minutes of reading, I was able to completely
understand the purpose and functionality of the flossing device,
having read all of the text on the site.  Some of the instructions are
a bit choppy, and could probably stand to be written more clearly, but
as it stands, I do understand what the product is, and how it works.

2.  Sadly, I don't floss as much as 4 out of 5 dentists recommend. 
However, if I had this available to me, I would most likely make use
of it, as it does seem to take some of the grunt work out of the
process.  My one concern is that it appears rather like a medieval
torture device in its appearance.  This may simply be a function of
its usefulness, but it is a bit unnerving to imagine maneuvering
between something as delicate as teeth with a device that resembles
pliers.  However, this may just be an instinctive reaction to years in
the dentist's chair.

3.  $3.33 for a six-pack seems very reasonable.  I might recommend
that you also make available single-packs, for someone who might want
to try one out without committing to six of them.  These could be
priced higher, per capita, than those in the six pack ($1 apiece with
shipping, perhaps?), and would give the consumer a bit more
flexibility in purchasing them.

I hope this answers your question, and good luck with your market
research and final product!
