Cottonelle Kids shows kids how much toilet paper to use
Certain six year-old boys I know use LOTS of toilet paper, perhaps a bit more than is necessary. A very personal preference, to be sure, but the Kleenex folks have decided to put forward a norm with their Cottonelle Kids brand toilet paper. See the little paw prints? Kids are supposed to follow them up to the picture of the cute puppy, and then tear. Looks to be about five squares, from what I can tell.
Interesting and mildly useful, but I can't help thinking this is one of those bits of family culture that needs to stay, um, in the family. Everyone's got their own method -- some fold, some wrap, some crumple, and all these configurations require different amounts of toilet paper. How can such a personal ritual be standardized? Indeed, should it be?
If you must know more (including the answer to "When I tear the toilet paper, the perforations on the two plies don't line up. How do I fix this?") be sure to read the Cottonelle Kids FAQ. Or, perhaps you'd like to print out some super-fun Cottonelle Kids puzzles and games.
[Thanks, Rick, for the tip. Next martini's on me, in spirit at least.]
