Why do toothbrushes fall over so easily?

Fallen over toothbrush

Dammit! Why do tooth brushes have to fall over all too easily?

I was thinking this morning, why do tooth brushes fall over on their side so easily?

Usually I put toothpaste on my wife’s toothbrush so it’s ready for her when she wakes up. It’s just a nice thing to do. It seems mean squirting toothpaste onto my brush (before I’m about to use it) but ignoring hers. She’s always up soon after me so the toothpaste won’t have a chance to go ‘hard’ and be yucky.

However the problem is that after you’ve put toothpaste on the toothbrush head and put it back down on the shelf/sink top/window ledge etc, instead of it staying upright, they’re too easy to knock so that they rock and fall over on their side. Thus getting a little dab of toothpaste on top of your bathroom shelf / sink or wherever, which you have to wipe off. Dammit!

A sturdier toothbrush base is required! One where it’s much more difficult for the toothbrush to rock and fall sideways.

Why have product designers at Colgate etc not realised this. It seems such common sense to me. You can surely still have a toothbrush with a nice grip etc, which they all seem to nowadays, but where it always sits well.
