Produce and manufacture 2,500 units of this unique designed as submarine pet's toy for your pet's endless joy
This is Louie:
Like every other cat, Louie loves playing in small spaces: soft drink boxes, shoe boxes, paper bags and basically anything that can make a mess…
So we figured why not design a box that will be fun for Louie to play with and also look good.
After a few trials and errors:
we came up with this:
We worked hard on designing the perfect toy for Louie that would be made form cat friendly and green materials. As you can see in the video, not only does Louie love his new toy it is also uniquely designed to look good and easily assembled at home (no glue required).
As of today we finished the process of spreading the cardboard and managed to build the first prototype.
We also have a price offer from a factory that can make these units for us.
However, we are a few thousands of dollars short from designing the die (the part of the machine that presses the cardboard into the right shape) and moving into serial production.
Our goal is $5000 that will allow us to manufacture the first 2,500 units of this unique box.
We have a few more designs of the box and in the event that we will receive more than our goal we will work to make the rest of our designs avaliable.
Our rewards include stickers, the box designed as a submarine itself and also some designed T-shirts.
We also have one limited offer: pledge an amount of $2,000 and you will have the right to name the product after your pet giving them eternal fame and glory (provided, however that the name is not offensive).
Here are some more details about the rewards we offer:
- at any pledge of $5 or more you will receive the bumper sticker we've designed especially for this project:
- For $20 pledge you can receive the submarine itself or one of our T-shirts. If you chose a T-shirt, please indicate according to the list below, which T-shirt you wish to receive:
Please remember that the name of the box may change however the design of the box will stay the same.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The initial challenge is to get the attention of potential backers to support our project. We are well aware that there are millions of cat lovers out there. There is an average of 83,100,000 searches for the word 'cat' every month in Google (according to Google statistics) of which almost 25 million are in the US. We want to get to as many of these cat lovers as possible and bring our project to their awareness and their homes.
Once we receive the money we will be facing two major challenges:
A. Manufacturing: although we have already approached cardboard manufacturers in order to ensure that producing this box is possible, there is always the small chance that what worked on the drawing table will not work in real life in mass production.
B. Distribution: distributing this product world wide is challenging. We have already figured out the way to ship the box as it folds flatly and compactly. We also received estimates for shipping costs.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
