Poppins is certified for Conformité Européenne (CE), Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS). This means that Poppins is FREE from hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products and does not radiate harmful emissions. Most crowd fund platforms do not require products to be certified, but with Poppins we are going the extra mile for our backers.
We will begin shipping to all our backers within 60 days from the end of our campaign. With invaluable lessons learnt during the logistical phase of our last 'Smart Buckle' Campaign we are fully confident of meeting this shipping goal.
We believe in the best of crowdfunding where a community of innovators and thinkers supports exciting new ideas that DELIVER. We proved this with Smart Buckle, shipping a fully certified product to over a thousand backers within a couple of months of closing our campaign. We had a few lessons through that process and it has honed us to be even more precise and relentlessly focussed on quality and execution. That is why you can feel confident that when we say Guaranteed Shipping with 60 days of Poppins campaign close, we mean it!

Our Track Record
This Poppins crowdfund comes on the back of a successful crowdfunding campaign we ran for our first product, Smart Buckle. We launched Smart Buckle on Kickstarter during the summer and had nearly a thousand backers pre-ordering the product from over 30 countries. We are proud not only to have shipped 100% of Smart Buckles to our backers but also to have won distribution agreements across the world. In less that 120 days since launch we have shipped over 7,000 units all over the world.
Why we built Poppins?
We found over the last several months with the onslaught of wireless headphones emerging into the market that all our current devices will be obsolete and be put away into our desk drawers. That is not too cool for the planet. We looked around and found that the wireless adaptors for headphones were either poorly designed or just another crowdfunding promise which never got delivered by large funded projects. It took us less than 9 months to get here with a real product that we use everyday in our offices and in our homes. We made it for our own use and decided that we can make it for all those who fell in love with it. It is round cookie like device. The way it is designed, the magnet just clips on to you like a little force of gravity. It is seamless with your fashion and a really cool fidgety toy to play with - we promise, once you play with it, you will keep playing. And of course, we wanted hi-def sound quality with the best quality transmission of audio, when we made Poppins. We enjoy it daily, and we bring you the same.

Return / Replacement Criteria
Our team has self funded the development of Poppins to date and as such we have completed all tooling and arrived at a PVT (Product Validated) stage of development. This means that we have a working prototype that is performing exceptionally well.
With that we do not see any risks on production, however we are holding ourselves to a high standard by promising our crowd fund backers that we WILL SHIP YOUR PRODUCT WITHIN 60 DAYS from the close of the campaign. Whilst there is a risk that we might miss this deadline we have done everything to ensure that this is both achievable and a milestone that we live up to - that is our commitment to you.
The key challenge for us now is to run an effective campaign that brings awareness of this incredible product to a mainstream audience who value their timepiece and who agree with our philosophy that rejuvenating your existing product is a better way to live than simply buying new products all the time.
