The Oona: Here's What's Up
Here's a quick update on where we are at with all facets of the Oona.
Body and Base:
These parts are still being fabricated. We're waiting on an exact shipping date from the manufacturer, but they should be completed within a few days.
We received the new and improved suction cup samples and we're happy to say that they meet our standards for quality. We have given the manufacturer the go-ahead to start producing them and, barring any delays, we should have them in the next 4-5 weeks.
The travel bags have been delivered. Yay!
Thank you very much for your feedback regarding the packaging design. We received some comments that our initial design was too busy. In response, we have redesigned and simplified the packaging.
We do think it's important to note something we neglected to mention last time - We have designed this packaging for the future where we will (hopefully) be in retail stores for people who have not seen our product online. Because of that, and some advice we've received from retailers, we feel it is important to show what the Oona is through images on the box. While this eliminates additional white space, this is a decision we've made in order to show the versatility of the product and draw in future Oona lovers. We hope you like it!
We are feeling very positive about the progress made, and can't think you enough for your support and for going through this process with us. Barring any manufacturing delays we should have all of our pieces in 4-5 weeks and be able to start shipping to you shortly thereafter. If you have any questions about our process, please send us a message, email or tweet and we'll be happy to talk to you about it. We'll keep you posted as things progress!
