VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE COUNTRYBALLS HERE: http://answergarden.ch/view/162420

Any Country that earns 150+ votes will be added as incentives to our Kickstarter for you to choose!

***YES WE DO HAVE POLANDBALL!***

We just couldn't get his eyes right before the video was taken- right now in 3D he looks more like a mutated Pokeball. He is visible in the Photo Montage wearing the Sunglasses though. Design work is in progress :p 

***THESE ARE PROTOTYPE DESIGNS- NOT FINISHED MODELS- WE WANT YOUR OPINIONS BEFORE FINAL PRODUCTION***

Some people have correctly pointed out that the UKBall in the video has some lines it shouldn't have on the Union Jack/St Patricks Cross- thankyou! There can be some issues translating 2D flag designs and characters into 3D seamlined balls, but if you spot any other errors, please do let us know- These will not be in the final product.

 (Prototype only, not finished product- let us know your suggestions!)

Risks and challenges

The first prototypes were crafted by hand, and the initial designs are now ready for mass production. We are now preparing to purchase the required equipment for sewing and will be using our existing network of international shippers to ensure we will be able to make deliveries by our deadline.

The process of taking any new product from prototype to mass production can be difficult. Unexpected situations may arise due to a supplier missing a deadline, for example, or technical problems of the supply chain for the mass production. These can cause a deadline to not be met.

We have prepared ourselves as best as possible for these unforeseen situations. If it seems that a delay may be possible during the testing, production or supply of CountryBalls, the backers will be informed immediately.

Remember, if we don't reach our goal we won't get funded, and no one will get a CountryBall Plushie. So please, share our campaign with your friends and family!
