Kickstarter is a site that lets creators (like me!) share ideas with others who can support their project - in this case through a pre-sale. If I get enough support to hit my goal, the toy will go into production and supporters will get them. If I don’t meet my goal, supporters get their money back.
Although I would love to get Toonsies produced and shipped in time for the holidays, it's likely going to take longer than that. I'll do my best! If Toonsie isn't available for the holidays I'll send each backer cards that can be used to convey the gift that is in the making, so that you can still gift Toonsie for the holidays even if it's not yet ready to ship :-)
