About

Bobblers are precision machined, multi-function fidget toys for the office and for the home.    

I created Bobblers because I love playing with magnets. The two Bobblers sitting on my desk have provided me and others around me with many hours of distraction and entertainment.

There are a huge range of ways you can play with your Bobbler. You can spin it, bobble it, flick it and attach spheres in various different configurations.

Bobblers will stick securely to any smooth surface. The high resistance Bobbler will also stick to vertical surfaces and even upside down (I do not recommend sticking the Colossal Bobbler upside down though as it is very heavy and might break your toe if it lands on it).

You should probably not pledge for one if you have important things that you need to concentrate on.

 Know someone that can't stop fidgeting? Here's a way to help them:

PLEASE TAKE NOTE

Bobblers are NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN. Keep them out of the reach of children. The Colossal Bobbler comes with a  powerful magnet which is only suitable for handling by people aged 18+. This magnet must not be placed in very close proximity to electronic devices. These magnets must be handled with care and the sphere must be attached to the base gently. If you pledge for multiple Colossal Bobblers, do not attempt to attach two of the large magnets together, do not place them in proximity and do not attempt to attach any other magnet to this large magnet. Be thoughtful over the initial placement of your Bobbler as sticking and unsticking it over and over again will cause it to lose its stick, it also requires quite a bit of force to remove as the adhesive pad needs to be VERY STRONG. Do not stick the Bobbler to surfaces that have been painted, to varnished wood, or to any other surface with some sort of fragile coating as it may damage these coatings. Be safe & happy Bobbling!

Risks and challenges

I don't forsee any insurmountable challenges with the delivery of my project, the Bobbler is beautiful in it's simplicity, I have full working prototypes and I have the capacity to produce lots of them. But of course with any new project such as this, there is the chance of some small unexpected delay, whether a shipment arrives late or some items do not pass quality testing and must be replaced. To address this I have accounted for several weeks more time than I actually need in the delivery date. As a backer of my project you can expect me to respond promptly to communications and to deliver a great product exactly as you had pledged for it.
