Bring PacSet's jetpack wearing fox Kippu to life!


Kippu in the grass

At PacSet Tours, we’re best known for our affordable tours to Japan (and maybe our sense of humor). However, when our co-founder created our cute fox mascot Kippu (a.k.a. Kip), he quickly made his way into the hearts of many. Now, we’re launching a campaign to bring the jet-pack wearing, bushy-tailed fox to you!

From our earliest days, Kippu has been an integral part of the PacSet family. We have wanted to produce a plush ever since Kip came to life, but as a small, family-run company, all the funds we have are already dedicated to supporting our tours. In spite of that, we know that Kippu loves to explore and would love to become part of your home/office/apartment/citadel/castle -- so we need your help!

Our $8,000 goal

We set our goal slightly lower than what we really need in the hopes of making it more possible to reach. The $8,000 just about covers production of Kippu, and nothing else. What if we go above our goal? As a thank you, we'll put together some surprises for our funders. Any extra far beyond our goal will go towards keeping PacSet going, help keep costs low, and to make tours better for YOU.

Why this campaign is only one month

Right now, we only have one prototype of Kip. It will take about 4 months to mass produce and ship the plushies to us. We're really hoping to get these in time for Anime Expo, and will start production earlier if we reach our goal before March 14. We also have a deadline with the plush makers if we are to begin mass production >_<

Help make Kippu a reality by spreading the word and sharing this page wherever you can. We appreciate everyone's continued support (old and new!), let's see how far we can make Kippu fly!

Follow Kip's journey here on Indiegogo and at Kip's blog.
