OUR PRODUCT...YOUR LIFE

• Ever misplace your keys or sunglasses?

• Do you live in a small space without an entry table or closet?

• Want your kids to have their own places to keep their hats and gloves

• Do you hate the "sweater dents" caused by traditional coat hooks?

• Want to keep your cell phone or sunglasses handy, but away from the kids?

• Or, do you just love innovative and cool-looking design?

Cubby is the ultimate anywhere hook that also allows you to store items like sunglasses, cellphones, wallets, spare change, and gloves.

Its large diameter won’t stretch out your collars and is big enough to securely hang purses and laptop bags. Cubby merges the nostalgia of a kindergarten cubby with a cool, modern form, putting a sophisticated adult spin on the kid classic.

They are great for entry-ways, mudrooms, pool rooms, garages, and kids' rooms. A single Cubby would look and work great on the wall in an office or dorm room, while a group of them is perfect for the whole family. 

Parents and kids each have their own storage space, and Cubby can even be hung at different heights to accommodate the little ones.

MADE IN THE USA, REALLY

What's great about Kickstarter is its ability to help rejuvenate American manufacturing. It helps mitigate the risk of paying upfront for very expensive tooling, without knowing if you have a desirable product. We are committed to making this in the USA.  A local Chicago plastics company is making the tooling and will be injection-molding the Cubbies.  We have sourced our screws locally, and the wall anchors and screw head covers nationally. 


RECYCLED MATERIAL + FULLY RECYCLABLE

We have been working with the manufacturer on the amount and type (pre- / post-consumer) of recycled content that we can effectively use. So we are working on it and will be updating as we make final determinations. But also, polypropylene is fully recyclable, and Cubby uses no other material combinations and can simply be placed in a recycle container for easy sorting and re-grinding.

HEY, WHERE'D MY MONEY GO?

  • The bulk of the money will pay for the steel tooling for injection molding
  • We need to pay for the manufacturer's minimum order quantity (MOQ)
  • We have several patents pending on the Cubby product category, and we will continue the intellectual property protection process
  • We will be developing packaging for future retail outlets
  • Funding beyond our goal may allow for development and continued intellectual property protection of future Cubby products

EASY INSTALLATION

Cubby is installed with just a single screw. The screw head is painted white so that it is less noticeable inside. We also include a white, adhesive-backed felt cover that will completely hide the screw head.

In addition to the screw and screw cover, a wall anchor is also included if Cubby is being mounted to drywall.


HI, I'M ISLA.

If you support my mommy and daddy at the $5 pledge amount, I will draw a thank-you note and email it to you.  I may spell some words on it, but i am not so good at my uppercase "N"s, "M"s, or "S"s.  But I am good at my "L"s, "O"s, and "D"s.

If you support my mommy and daddy at the $10 pledge amount, I will draw you a personal thank-you card and mail it to you anywhere in the whole wide world, like Florida and Virginia, where my grandparents live.
