Pollinating an indoor tomato plant...

OK, I know all about the birds and the bees and all the flower parts. Bought a plant from HD that grows 1" tomatoes. Was surprised there were flowers on it as it was only about 7"-8" tall. We tried shaking it, flicking the underside of the flower, and blowing on the flower from the side. Only one of the flowers is growing a tomato. Anything else we can try? Would a small damp brush work to transfer the pollen? One site even mentioned using a little battery powered toothbrush to vibrate the stem right under the flower.

Any ideas to get more flowers to set would be most appreciated.
