In the whole Night Time Routine with the Kidlets, there’s Tubtime, Get Jammy Jams, Brush Teeth, Pick out Books, Read Books, Lights Out. This Marketing Incident takes place in the Brush Teeth timeframe.

The kids are brushing the teeth, which at this point, they can actually brush their teeth with some results. So The Younger is done and The Elder is finishing up.

“Daddy, I need a Reach toothbrush,” The Elder requested.

Just a little confused as this came from left field, “Uh, Why?” I questioned.

“Because the brush is angled, it gets the germs out of my mouth,” The Elder states with almost a commercial like tone.

“Yeah, that’s right, you don’t want germs in your mouth,” I said amazed and a little bewildered. The Elder trots out of the bathroom on to the bedroom. I stayed in the bathroom, still amazed at the commercial that I just witness. Man, if there was only the Eat Your Vegetables Commercial.

    We have seen this over and over too.

    Our favorite was when there were some pots and pans being advertised on infomercials. Our, then 6 year old, son saw them later in a store. He went into the whole spiel as to why my wife needed to buy them and how much easier her life would be with them. He even talked her through all the features the pots had.


    He loves infomercials.

    I wonder if teachers still give kids those red dye tablets they are supposed to let dissolve in their mouths to show where they didn’t brush well. Those were also a good way to sell lots of tooth brushes.
