A game changing design that makes brushing your teeth fun for not only kids, but also adults.
Hi Kickstarters, thanks for checking out our project! We have spent the past three months developing the Zufi Grip and Storybook and now we need your help to get them produced. The grip delivers a manifestation of materiality and product design to a previously mundane activity.
Zufi Grip is made of a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that is squishy and tactilely stimulating. Once you pick it up, it’s difficult to put down. It stands up of its own accord so your toothbrush never again has to lay idly with its bristles touching the sink. Zufi makes brushing your teeth more compelling - it brings fun and meaning to the morning routine. It helps parents get their kids to brush, which means kids are brushing for longer, and more often.
Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing - the Zufi Grip:
The Zufi T-Shirt
Zufi Grips w/ Storybook
Zufi Grips can be cleaned in the dishwasher like most of your rubber-like and silicone spatulas.
After we have reached our funding goal, it will take approximately 2 months to manufacture the grips. We will get them to you as soon as possible.
I would like to be the first member of your movement. A movement dedicated to eliminating bad breath, dirty teeth, cavities and tantrums. A movement so powerful that my child and I can have fun while he brushes his teeth – every night. A movement to make the world a little happier every single day, for every parent, in every corner of America. It’s a movement with a mission. It’s a movement with heart. It’s a movement with a great product and a lot of passion behind it. It’s disruptive. And all it takes is a little paw. That’s it. Well, that and a story. A simple story. Connect for 10 more minutes with your child amidst a busy world.
