In the morning you brush your teeth with it. (hopefully)
You can sit on it.
At night you lay down on it.

No hints needed, my father told me that one ages ago and I still like it.

    $\begingroup$ If the accepted answer is the "proper" one, where's the riddle? It's not just that this is easy; it's that without a single "tricky" answer, this is just a series of questions about items used in common activities. $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 18:22
  • $\begingroup$ Of course some humor is needed to finish this one. But still it has it's own charme. I never said I search for only one word / answer. And I would say it trains your brain to think differently as well which is needed for some others. I am from germany and might miss-interpret the word riddle a bit. what tag do you suggest? riddle + humor ? $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 23:31

    $\begingroup$ The problem isn't that "riddle" is inappropriate, it's that this is failing to be a puzzle of any kind. If you asked these questions outside the context of a puzzle site, it wouldn't be considered a puzzle. It would be considered three very easy to answer (with minor cultural assumptions) questions. If you insist that it's a puzzle, the "trick" is that it isn't really a puzzle. $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 14, 2014 at 2:05

    $\begingroup$ This question appears to be off-topic because there is no puzzle. $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 14, 2014 at 2:06

You search for

a toothbrush, a chair and a bed

At least that's how it went when I was a child.

    $\begingroup$ What's the puzzle here? $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 18:16

    $\begingroup$ @EnvisionAndDevelop I think the puzzle is that you spend time trying to think of one thing to fulfill the requirements. It's like an anti-riddle, for children. $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 18:18
  • $\begingroup$ the puzzle is that you are searching for something else and in fact it was not a requirement to have a single word answer, or even just one. Love it or hate it, in my office we laughed out loud when I answered it. $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 23:33

A pair of pyjamas. In the morning you brush your teeth while you are still wearing it. You can of course sit down while wearing it. And in the night, you go to sleep with it.

The answer I believe is a

Rock.

Cavemen brushed their teeth with it (lol I think)

You can sit on one.

And, cavemen probably laid on it to sleep :D
