About this project
Toasty Time is a clothing brand dedicated to built-in mittens on hoodies. Our mittens are made in NY and our hoodies are super soft and with a quality tailored cut. We've been outfitting adults with Toasties since 2007 and we're on Kickstarter because we'd like to bring them to a smaller audience... kids!
We ran a small test run of kids sizes and put them shops around New York, Portland and San Francisco. We're so pleased to see the big smiles on all the nice friends, aunties, uncles, grandmas and grandpas when outfitting their little tater tot in a kid-sized Toasty. This Kickstarter would help our production line reduce the amount of time it takes to go from a concept sketch to delivery. We'd like to grow to a scale where it'd be faster in the future while keeping the quality to a high and cozy standard. Help us spread the good vibes all around!
We're proud to partner with an American family owned and operated knitting factory in Schenectady, NY. It's a lovely 4 hour drive along to visit our mitten makers from our HQ.
We've set up pop-up shops and saw lots of smiles, a few freak-outs and even a couple fighting over a Toasty in its last size! Most importantly, we heard fervent requests for kid sizes. Listening to our customer base is a huge part of what informs our business decisions.
We like to feature our friends who are snow experts, artists and ice cream entrepreneurs. They are our source of inspiration. We also love to collaborate with our buddies from high school, college and work.

Risks and challenges
Since we have finished the prototyping phase with our selected manufacturer, the risk is very low. However, there are risks to the manufacturing schedule which can be influenced by the availability of our manufacturer or higher-than-expected demand.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
