    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door

    😂 worst mistake ever. I "accidentally" gave all the toot toot cars a bath so now even changing the batteries doesn't help.

    There's only one set of batteries I bother replacing and it's nothing to do with the children's toys :-O

    You need an electric one rather than a battery one. That way it just sits in its base, charging, till you need it first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Always fully charged and good to go.

    I assume you were referring to your battery toothbrush?

    My tv remote has been telling since before Christmas that it needs new batteries. I still haven't put new batteries in and it's still working. I think it's lying to me
