Michael and Mirabelle hope you enjoyed the video and it gave you a better idea of what our company is all about, and what we want to accomplish with our Kickstarter campaign. The Mirabelle Plush Project is a natural extension to all the wonderful Mirabelle merchandise we have created over the past seven years, and a great companion to the Mirabelle Happy Dog Adventure children's book series. We have been wanting to create a Mirabelle Plush for many years, and gratefully the universe has recently aligned for us to make that dream into a reality. But we know we can't do it without help, and this is where our friends and fans come into the picture. We value all the relationships and contacts we have made since we launched our company, The Adventures of Mirabelle. It has been a fantastic, and sometimes wild, ride; however we have loved every minute of it.
Since the book series came out in October of 2012, we have logged over 5000 miles of travel to meet kids and adults from all across the country at book events. Perhaps the greatest thrill during the book readings is when we realize the impact that Mirabelle makes with children. The kids are endlessly fascinated to make the connection between the character in the book series and the actual Boston Terrier dog sitting quietly next to Mr. Muller as he reads. We hope that Mirabelle inspires kids everywhere to read, be creative and adventurous, and wonder at the simple beauty of life; and for everyone else to stop and appreciate the world around them. That is the Mirabelle message!
The Mirabelle Plush runs 10 inches in length, 6 inches in width - left paw to right paw, and 11 inches high from the bottom of the front paw to the tip of the ear. Weight is approximately 3/4 of a pound. Our initial production run of 2000 plush toys will be funded through this campaign.
We know this is a journey worth taking. It is through a partnership with our friends and fans that we will make this a success. To further thank you and get you excited about our rewards, here are images of our ten different reward levels:
Thank you for supporting us in this journey and helping make this dream a reality.

Risks and challenges
We realize that every project may have potential obstacles or production delays. We feel confident that once we are fully funded, we will be able to have the Mirabelle Plush delivered to us by mid April of 2015. We have completed all the preparation necessary to manufacture the Mirabelle Plush, and now it's just a matter of funding. We have put target dates for delivery on all our Reward Levels. We will work really hard to meet those target dates, and hopefully even get your rewards to you ahead of schedule.
If setbacks do arise during this project (we hope they don't, but it sometimes happens!) we will keep you informed along the way.
If you have any questions about the campaign, or along the way, please feel free to contact us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
