Updating you on how we are doing!
I wanted to send an update on all of the great things that have been happening with the business since all of you backed us... It is because of all of you that this product was produced and I hope you are proud to have been a part of it. To be honest, at times I have wondered, why I did this to myself, but it was having you all to hold me accountable that I kept going.
With that being said, I have some great news to report, thanks to you we attended 2 trade shows this past summer and came out very happy campers. We are now in stores nationwide and are even going to be shipping to Canada, France and Australia soon too. Barney's NYC was our biggest store that we will be in this holiday season and they will have a custom paper doll family in their lille huset kits. We are also working with other large companies to create custom Lille Huset houses for their stores too. However, we are so happy to have so many independent stores selling our products . They are all top notch!
We really feel like this has been an insane undertaking, to launch a concept and 6 months later be full on filling orders as fast as we can take them. We will also be getting some press that we are so excited about and each time you see someone saying they love us, each of you deserves credit too. If you had not taken a chance and backed our idea we literally would not be here!!
Since shipping to all of you some things have changed, for the best! We were able to update our packaging so it ships without a ding on it, and we added handles and make it a full portfolio that your child can carry. We also made our DIY book that includes scrapbook papers, paper doll, and lots of great inspiration for little designers everywhere. We are super excited to be addling some wooden dolls to the collection that will be available in November to go along with the houses for the holiday season and these will only be offered on our web site.
Our marketing has also come a long way, where we were really able to speak to our customers about what our products are. We created a full catalog that you can download here .
What is next? We are working on loads of accessories for the houses, new styles of house fronts including a fire house, and getting some of our other popular products into production including one new one that has been on the drawing boards, that is a cardboard kitchen.
ALSO please email me pictures of your kids playing with the products and I'll feature you on our blog or please join us on facebook. If you send us the name of the child we will add him/her to our mailing list and they will get free stuff in the mail. I know from having kids that they love it when they get mail!
If you have not received your gift please let us know, right now the only outstanding orders we have are ones that are going over seas and I need to collect shipping or if you did not provide us with your shipping address.
