EVERYONE is talking about our toothbrush hack!

Blog

On Thursday 31st May, Holly our franchisee in Southport posted the toothbrush hack to her Little Learners Facebook page:

Tell me I am NOT the only one who didn’t know that the coloured bristles on children’s toothbrushes are “toothpaste indicators” that tell you where to put it and how much toothpaste to use!? 😍😱😱😱
I have totes been using too much!!
Thanks Wisdom Toothbrushes!
#nevertoooldtolearnsomethingnew

The post struck a chord with parents and grandparents, with hundreds admitting they had never realised there was a reason for the pattern. One mother wrote: ‘Learn something new all the time ha’. Another posted: ‘I have four kids and never knew this!’ And others admitted they had been piling on the paste, with one writing: ‘No way! I’ve been overloading toothpaste for years.’

Well one week later this toothbrush hack post has literally gone crazy 😝!
It’s spread EVERYWHERE! Reaching 1 MILLION people and shared 5K times on Facebook!
It began with a piece in the Manchester Evening News, however it’s been picked up by Netmums, The Sun, The Mirror, Daily Mail, Huff Post to name just a few – it’s even spread over the pond to Disney’s Babble and Popsugar in America!!!
And the number of outlets covering it continues to grow!

What an amazing example of the power of social media and the way it can be used for good! As parents we are able to share tips, stories, jokes and offer support to each other – all at the click of a button! And as we’ve seen – there’s literally no limit to the amount of people we can reach. Your post could provide information, amaze, raise a smile – or even just reach out with empathy about our journeys through life with our little ones!
We would love to know what you would like us to post or blog about next in the world of parenting – from Messy Play to toddler tantrums…
Please do let us know by commenting below…
