The Gruesome Gruffalo has just been named the nation's best-loved bedtime story by parents, and has sold more than 13 million copies since its publication in 1999, with The Very Hungry Caterpillar inching itself into second place, in a recent poll (*) conducted by the retailer Aldi.
Stories are great for children (and parents!), and can really help with a bedtime routine. 'Bath, (Tooth)Brush, Book and Bed', is a phrase that we definitely advocate at Brush-Baby. We know that everybody is so busy nowadays, however incorporating 2 minutes toothbrushing time, as an everyday activity, evolving into a habit, with the reward of a favourite story, is one of the best ways to signal the end of the day.
And... we can help storytelling with our character toothbrushes too. Just think how our Toby Tiger and Bernie Bear WildOnes toothbrushes could help with other popular choices from the survey, including The Tiger who Came to Tea, and We're Going on a Bear Hunt and the one story that EVERYBODY will know - Goldilocks and the Three Bears!
So, what are you waiting for?.. get brushing and reading!
