Student Beatriz Paiva kickstarts Tick Tock Beaver

19 June 2013

Beatriz Paiva, Westminster Business School student, is raising funds for her innovative project: a playful teeth timer for kids.

Beatriz was inspired by the fact that most kids only brush their teeth for less than 40 seconds when she decided to create the Tick Tock beaver, a playful teeth timer.

The prototype was developed by her boyfriend, who is a designer. They are now raising £20K to cover manufacturing costs through Kickstarter - a website that helps inventors fund their ideas.
