T-TONE / kids toothbrush

T-TONE
T-TONE

TTone is an interactive toothbrush for children, which plays music with the kinetic energy produced by the brushing action.

The concept is to make brushing a more interesting and interactive experience for the child, so they can have fun whilst also developing healthy dental hygiene habits.

The music comes from the replaceable brush, which is more eco friendly. When the brush is replaced they get a new musical tune along with the new brush. The music entertains the child, encouraging them to brush for the correct time, whilst also allowing the parents to know whether their child has completed their brushing time or not.
