PATO supports the healthy development of oral hygiene for babies and toddlers. This teething toy, created for NUK, is an innovative tool that provides pain relief and introduces them playfully to a healthy oral care routine. Babies and toddlers are distracted from the painful teething process with a made-to-measure product.
Functionally PATO is based on traditional oral hygiene techniques such as chewing sticks, whereby the mechanical process naturally supports the chemical effects, while its form is derived from basic geometries awarding PATO its simple personality. The application of different tactile materials – PP and TPE - together with the flexibility of its rotating mechanism, allow babies to intuitively choose which of the three different chewing heads best fits their needs. It is through these characteristics that PATO wins in charm and maturity, at the same time differentiating it from common teething rings.
