Little Prince Plush toys

The Little Prince toy, in soft velvet, closely following the drawings in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's classic 70 year old children's story

LITTLE PRINCE CLASSIC (KIMONO)

The Little Prince is the main character in the Classic children's book written by the pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry 70 years ago, it is the 10th most popular book on the planet and has been translated into over 260 languages. 

The following are some examples of his name in other languages:

Der kleine Prinz, Il Piccolo Principe, 星の王子さま, El Principito, O Pequeno Príncipe, 小王子, 어린왕자, Маленький принц, Küçük Prens

LITTLE PRINCE: The Book

It has also been made into films, animations and been performed on stage. 

THE DESIGN  APPROACH

We, as fans of the story, wanted to create some new items to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the book this year. So we decided to look to the original drawings for inspiration. We took the illustrations by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and used them to create dimensioned technical drawings, to closely follow the scale and proportions of each character, as he drew them. We also recreated the facial expression of each character as per his images using a high embroidery technique. We have matched the exact colours with Pantone swatches and then had the vendors dye each of the fabrics to the specific colour for every plush. Each soft toy requires different fabric types and colours to be supplied, from multiple vendors, in order to closely follow the original look, which is quite challenging from an inventory and supply perspective. 

Now after all that hard work, and multiple prototypes, we now have a nice range of products, that truly reflect the style and charisma of the Little Prince characters for you to cherish as your own!

MANUFACTURING

We have selected an experienced high quality plush toy manufacturer, with whom we have worked with before.  The factory made the final samples that we show in our photos and in our video. Once we have received the funding the factory can start production immediately, so the orders should be ready in time for your Christmas gifts. 

FUNDRAISING

We are raising money to meet the cost of the following:

  • The minimum order quantities for the special custom dyed fabrics for the hair & clothing
  • The minimum order quantities for the plush orders (which is several thousand)
  • Complete the development of the perks, like the Tote bags, USB drive etc. 
  • The minimum order quantities for the perks
  • Manufacturing set and tooling costs
  • Printing film and production costs
  • The logistic costs of collecting the goods from all the vendors and delivering them to the warehouse for consolidation
  • Packaging materials
  • Logistic handling and packaging of all the perks

So we need your help to finish your products and have them delivered to you in time for Christmas!

DISTRIBUTION

If you are interested in distributing our Little Prince products, do let us know! We would be  happy to ship them  internationally once they are in production. 

RISKS & CHALLENGES

Upon receiving funding, the orders will be placed with the vendors, as all the design work has been done and approved.

The normal production schedule is 30 days to order the materials and then 30 days for production, plus 3 days to clear customs. However if there are any unforeseen delays we will notify everyone immediately.

Once we have received the goods, they then have to be consolidated from the  multiple vendors at the warehouse. Each perk will then be custom packed, specifically for each owner and shipped out straight away. 

If the owners have multiple perks the orders will be combined into one shipment. 

For the stretch goals the process will be the same.

We have over 20 years experience of doing product design and manufacturing for our clients, we now want to do the production for YOU!
