About this project
We need your help. We've got this crazy idea that an Angel, a Minotaur, a Cyclops, and a Medusa skeleton would be awesome additions to the Tinysaur collection. Purchasing a reward will help us to bring these ideas to life. Your pledge is your vote for the coolest new Tinysaur. We've built all but the Medusa, and are illustrating the instructions when we're not typing, assembling prototypes, or fulfilling tiny dinosaur skeleton orders at EverythingTiny.com.
Since our successful Tiny Human Kickstarter, we've been working on more humanoid skeletons for your enjoyment.
If you haven't seen our kits before, they come with laser cut parts (for the Tiny Human, it's 42 bones) that pop out with tweezers, so there's no cutting involved. Follow the instructions and assemble the bones into your own tiny skeleton.
The All-In-One kit comes with everything you need to make and display your Tinysaur: laser-cut parts, instructions, glue, tweezers, a glass display dome, and wood base. We're printing up a professional box to go with the kits this time, too. That old box was fun to make, but after laser cutting hundreds of inkjet prints, it was time to have a professional printer make it.
We realized that a Medusa would be awesome to add to this collection while the box was on the way to the printer, so we don't have a picture yet. UPDATE: Medusa complete.
Herb learned to flamework the borosilicate domes this year at Urban Glass in Brooklyn.
We're going to try something we've never done. We're offering a few assembled Tinysaurs. These are the prototypes from making the cut files. We have to check that all the parts fit by building a few. Some of them come from the first cut. They're pretty unique. You'll be receiving a part of the creative process. We don't offer assembled Tinysaurs at EverythingTiny.com, so this is your chance to get them already built in a display case.
If you just want the bare bones with instructions, we have that, too. The mermaid comes with a clam shell bikini, because, of course, it would also be part of the fossil record with her bones.
Finally, there are two rewards that are complete collections for less than the price of each individual reward. If you know 6 people who would love Tinysaurs, this is the perfect opportunity to get one of each of the humanoid kits to give and share.
For the Memento Mori reward, you can put a short inscription of about 20 characters on the base.
Thank you for considering our project. Please share it to help us reach our goal, and ensure that backers receive their rewards.
An array of heads to adorn your Tiny Human skeleton kit. There's a Mastadon, a T-rex, a Pterosaur, a Triceratops, and a pair of horns in each kit. Skip gluing on the skull at the neck on your Tiny Human and you can change your Tinysaur's mind. Works with any of the humanoids.
Thanks to everyone who helped us get to our goal in four and a half hours! We're setting a new goal that won't affect the success of the campaign:
You did it! Thank you so much for your support. The campaign has passed $5,000. Everyone who pledged $8 or more will receive pointy tweezers with their order free of charge. This is in addition to the flat tweezers already included in all-in-one kits. No adjustment to your pledge is required.
Our new stretch goal is a free Secret Prototype when we reach $10,000. We have 23 days to go. If you pledge $24 or more, you will receive a secret prototype from our newest laboratory experiment. It's a whole new type of Tinysaur, so you'll get one of the very first ones before they are even available for sale. The delivery date of the Secret Prototype is being set out past our other Kickstarter rewards so it will ship separately by February 2016 to ensure we get it right. Your help in making this stretch goal happen will bring a new and exciting transformation to the tiny bone kits. Share this Kickstarter to help us unlock the Secret Prototype stretch goal.
Risks and challenges
The Medusa might be ugly. Oh yeah, that's the point.
Our laser could be commandeered by DARPA for interstellar combat. If that happens, we'll hand-cut the Tinysaurs, since galactic invaders will most-likely disable our power by ionizing the atmosphere anyway.
Other than that, we've been pretty good about getting our Tinysaur kit orders out through EverythingTiny.com and we were successful at fulfilling rewards from the previous campaign, so I think our odds are good that you'll receive your rewards by the end of the specified months.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
