The Same Yet Different

See these three toothbrushes? I went to Target to get three toothbrushes that were completely identical. The same. When I buy "coordinating" toothbrushes, we fight over who gets the color du jour. So, last big trip to Target, I bought these green and yellow (or jiggah) toothbrushes thinking that would end all arguing at bedtime.
Oh, no. The children immediately saw what I did not. One toothbrush is "Super Pooh" (their name for Winnie the Pooh). Now at night we have major meltdowns over who gets the Super Pooh toothbrush. Next time I will take the toothbrushes out and inspect them with a microscope to ensure they are indeed the same before I purchase them.
