Pet toothbrush / product

Pet toothbrush
Pet toothbrush

The idea was the product would have two forms, a ball form for the user and their dog to play with, and the other a chewable toy which also acts as a toothbrush. The motion of switching between these forms would be a simple thread system which can compress the inner structure when in ball form. This multi-functionality adds to the user experience, allowing them to interact with their dog, while also allowing the user to clean their dog’s teeth without directly interacting with the animal. The choice of towel gourd plays a role in the action of playing since it can be stuck to a Velcro surface to create a dynamic game of fetch.
