toothbrushes


We got the girls new toothbrushes a few weeks ago. In my quest to save money, I tried to avoid the "fancy", twice as expensive ones (really, who needs Hello Kitty, Dora or Barbie on their dental hygiene utensils?).

So I purchased the cheapies: 5 to a pack, no-name brand. But lo, and behold! These toothbrushes are fancy: they stick to the wall! To my surprise, the cheap-o toothbrushes come equipped with suction cup bottoms.

Each night, before the toothpaste is applied, the girls stick their toothbrushes to the wall. And then, we wait, wondering "how high can we count before the toothbrush falls". The current record: 12.

So the next time you need to pick up some new toothbrushes, buy cheapies, they're good for a lot more fun.
