Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit my Indiegogo :) 

The past few days have been a bit crazy, however, I finally set up some stuff in order to get this project rolling. Thank you guys for signing up and giving me the chance to make this a reality. I worked long and hard on this project and I am so proud to present it to everyone here!

Here is the Plushy spec's that we've all been waiting for! :)

  • Height: 15" inches
  • Width:  16" inches
  • Thickness: 4" inches 
  • Made out of 100% Polyester & PP Cotton
  • Super soft and squishy
  • Design hand made with many months of revisions
I found a manufacturer who can fully replicate our design! :) Additionally, I requested to remove the line going through the middle in order to make it more seamless. Yay

Some ideas these can be used for:
  • Grab 2 pillows and place a set on the couch on opposite sides. You can have 2 orange sides, 2 blue sides, or even 1 of each side to compliment eachother :)
  • You can use a set for throw pillows on your bed.
  • They are comfy to sit on if you have hardwood floors for guests.
  • They are great to throw at people.
  • Buy some catnip, sprinkle it on the pillow, ...??, Profit! 

Awesome, so why $6,750?

I am asking for $6,750 to fund this project in order to get my design produced as quickly as possible. With the amount of attention that it has gained, there is no way I would be able to single handedly produce these in a reasonable time frame. The funds include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Cost to get these produced.
  • Cost to get the fabric inspected by safety third parties.
  • Cost to pack, and warehouse the goods overseas and domestically.
  • Cost to import goods into the US to be distributed ASAP.
  • Cost to cover any additional international packages such as the UK that require more funds to get there securely.
  • Cost for door-to-door delivery, from my forwarder to packing location.
  • Maybe one pizza while I write the labels out :o)
  • Lastly, the packaging and shipping to get them to your front door!

Here's a price breakdown!

50% goes to manufacturing (producing, safety checks)

30% goes to importing them (customs, freight shipping, forwarding)

10% goes to supplies and shipping (such as a boxes! tape! postage! yay!)

9% goes towards indigogo processing fees

1% goes to 10 pizzas, sodas, and chips, as bribery to friends that will:

  • Generate all names/addresses/etc on a shipping label
  • Print that label, stick it on a box
  • Put your fluffy goodness in the box
  • Tape the boxes up 
  • Help deiliver the boxes to UPS the same day its packed
  • Make sure everything is organized and stuff! :)
  • Make sure you have an awesome experience
  • Be very thankful for your awesomeness!

I'd like to clarify that this is not a flexible funding project, so either the project makes it or it doesn't. I did not want to flexible fund this as the funds would all directly going towards the project itself, and I didn't want to just run off with unused money that won't go towards the initial goal for its intended purposes.

Raffle Rules & Information:

  • Single $5 Pledge = 1 Raffle ticket
  • Multiple Raffle Pledges are Allowed
