Meet Dear Deer!

It's all about creating more surprises and sharing the fun to home.

Inspired by many sweet houses, mixing the tenderness outline and hand tools in one, Dear Deer is the simple pair of pliers that could help you solving little problems properly yet adorns the place you love.

As Feature In

Designed with the full developed shape. Dear Deer laying and standing position with those antler pliers, revealing a unique softness, elegance yet strong personality to be a great item for the house and office. 

Based on the consideration of house tools, the best level of stainless steel 420 are chosen to provide great antirust factor from the inside. Besides, the TPR handles gives more non-skid property and comfort while doing those DIY properly.    

The special designed body structure offers a great container for those pliers in both resting and standing positions. The exquisite size is also suitable for the little extra space in the house or office.

 

 

Design and Development 

 

The Deer shape is a process of rebuilding and arrangement to make it the soft while stylish outline. As a result of we making the body and we really want those antlers to be in good use, thus we designed antlers pliers accordingly.The produce is tough for we are making it to be as good as other well-developed ones while beautiful at the same time.

  • Craft and Quality 

Taiwan is well-known for making and exporting one of those best quality professional hand tools from the 70s. While this is the best experience for us cooperating with Taiwanese Professional Hand Tools Makers.

  • 2016 Design Award

And it's our honor to tell you that our Dear Deer has won 2016 Golden Pin Design Award product design section. And she's ready to meet you!

Why Dear Deer

We've always want tools to be loved all the time as helper and decorations.To make the helpful tools more accessible around us, to change the destiny of easy misplaced, or missing, we created Dear Deer to fit in every  kind of creative lifestyle.

We are trying along the way of iThinking's products. From Penguin screwdriver, Bear papa ratchet screwdriver, to Rhino Hammer and now Deer Pliers. There're more and more options burst out from our ultimate creativity.

Rhino Hammer https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1538570791/rhino-hammer/description

We believe there will be more great marriage in design and utility, we can bring more surprises and the possibilities from it used to be.

A graceful deer is truly an attractive with those antlers goes perfect with the pliers!

Developing timeline

  • Kickstarter Start!
  • Week 1-6: Production of tools and deer body.
  • Week 7: Collect and organize backers information.
  • Week 4-8: Continue producing, packing and dispatch to backers.
  • Week 9-11: Shipping Dear Deer to the world.
  • Getting those Deer!

P.S. If everything goes well and everybody promptly send us back the backers survey in a week, we can tell you for sure to make those deer arrive your house before Dec.20th to be with you in the special elegant Christmas! 

The Package

Every Deer is protected in package design for safely shipping, suitable for no matter a gift or a treat for yourself ;)

Why do we need Crowd-Funding on Kickstarter?

As a second try presenting on Kickstarter, we need support from the crowd for Dear Deer to run in a factory, industrial tooling, packaging, marketing and so on.

You must noticed that an elegant tool is totally unprecedented try. To test those pliers, we kept on regulating the every part including machine and our design to achieve the best quality. The factory we cooperate with also paused the production line for us to test and make arrangements again and again. All these is to make the best of our product.

To finish the new try, we must order new mold, new processing tools, facilities and revise production. Face the reality and manufacturing cost, we have no way but request for small order in addition to ask for unique products while high quality one. It's quite expensive making new and good stuff yet we believe it will bring relevant value to itself. Because it's unusual, it stands out.

First we need your support. At the same time, what we want the most is sharing with the creative crowds and hear different voices from all over the world. You will receive Dear Deer at a one and only special discount Kickstarter price as big thanks in return. 

We committed to create more choices for you to have an item you like that can be part of the exquisite decoration and part of an useful tool. What we have faith in is cheering you up with more fun and creative ideas for your lifestyle.

Risks and challenges

Through the process of creating Dear Deer, we developed every part of our production including our structure design, mechanical part and several relating tests. We have secured our manufacturer (all in Taiwan), our metal provider to make sure the quality of our final product is as good as it can be. Also with a lot of check of the security of Deer's package, we feel confident in our ability to deliver the product of great quality. However, like in any venture, there are always challenges and unexpected delays in manufacturing and shipping. In any of the situations, we will keep you informed and do our best to resolve it as quickly as possible. If you love what we're doing or having more ideas, we'd love to hear from you.
