Kids Bamboo Toothbrush
Meet the Tiny Truthbrush! Our beautiful tiny scaled down Truthbrush is perfect for children aged 3- 8. This brush has our new soft plant based bristles which are 62% castor oil and 38% nylon.
Each Truthbrush is hand wrapped in tissue paper and a recyclable cardboard pillow pack.

*We are constantly searching for an alternative, but until then, we believe that a biodegradable handle with castor oil-based bristles is much better than a plastic toothbrush. The bristles should be put into your normal trash while the bamboo handle can be composted.
For the first few days you may notice the feel of the natural bamboo instead of plastic but soon you won't be able to imagine using anything else. Occasionally a bristle may fall out - don't panic! This is simply a sign that you are using a handcrafted brush made in the traditional way - not with bristles molded into plastic.
We recommend, based on advice from dentists, that you replace your toothbrush every 3 months (although we know the Truthbrush lasts much longer).
After use, please don’t leave standing in water. To dispose of your toothbrush, you can pull out the bristles with a pair of pliers and re-use the Truthbrush in any creative way you can. Plant canes, paint stirrers, or a small cleaning brush are just a couple of examples of how you can give your Truthbrush a second life.
We haven't had it long but my toddler seems to enjoy using it.
I like the size. My daughter used a few times and had one whole bundle of bristles come out in her mouth. Maybe it was just a fluke? Wish it was a little more durable for $6...
