Nightlight munny (or party or feature lamp)
Original kidrobot munny figure customised into an awesome and functional led nightlight
Munny nightlight was an amazingly aesthetic lamp which I designed using a munny that I had which needed a repaint (the first time I just doodled on him). The beautiful latticework in his head showed the led lights fantastically and he has been beside my bed ever since. I really wanted to share this lamp with the world, as it is both functional but also a cute collectable and companion (we adults in the modern world can't resist cute things, I'm the same). Pop vinyl figures are very popular to collect but unfortunately mass produced. These munny's would also always be made in small batches of 30 or so to preserve their value.
As the latticework is hand cut it will be different on each light and each will contain a tiny hidden shape cut in the lattice (such as a star, small animal, etc).
The colour for this project is a metallic bronze, silver, gold or copper acrylic and the LEDs are red, white, or multi coloured. The lamp will be fully functional, as LED lights can be left on all night safely, and they can be placed anywhere in the room as each comes with a battery box (which takes 2x AA batteries, no mains power required). I plan on introducing other colours to the range after this project but will keep each run short so the lights retain their appeal to collectors.
Once the project is over munny will be available to buy on my website but this Kickstarter project is essential to gauge the market and produce the first batch. If funding is successful I will be sending out a brief survey to gauge preference for future colour schemes and for you to select your choice of LED (red, white or multi) and colour (bronze, silver, gold or copper) for your munny reward.
Risks and challenges
I will keep everyone fully updated with the progress of the project. After the funds has been transferred to me I will purchase the munny blanks and start work. While waiting for the blanks I can start work on the keyrings/mini models sculpted in polymer clay and these may well be shipped out first.
Before the munny's are sealed any painting errors can be cleaned off and corrected. But there are not a large number of challenges with this project. I am working on a couple more munny blanks to smooth out production but after that I will need your generous support in order to continue.
I have sourced several suppliers for the blanks and LED's and ordered one of each to test shipping times and quality. These tests have all proved successful. Really excited to start work on this munny nightlight range!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
