Our Kickstarter project will bring the delicious and crafty playtime fun of the world’s only edible modeling dough to the United States. It’s called Yummy Dough!
Invented and launched in Germany by our friends, Andrea and Stefan Kaczmarek, we are hoping to generate enough Kickstarter-excitement to manufacture this all-natural, tactile treat in North America! Currently loved by kids and adults alike in the U.K. and Germany, Yummy Dough brings the creativity of craft dough to a delicious, just-add-water sugar cookie mix. It's great for kids and kids-at-heart!
How Yummy Dough works:
Funding for this project will allow us to begin manufacturing Yummy Dough in the U.S., produce samples for retailers, and set up local sourcing/packing of the product.
What’s in a Bucket of Yummy Dough?
You get four, 4 oz. packets of colored dry mix (red, green, yellow and blue), a measuring tool and a spoon all in their very own mixing bucket!
Do you know what’s in your "dough?" You do with Yummy Dough!
We all know what “other” craft dough tastes and smells like, but read Wikipedia for their ingredients and you’ll be shocked to see what they contain. (Like borax and petroleum! Yuck!) The ingredients of conventional modeling dough contain coloring and conserving agents, fragrances, emulsifiers, lubricants, binders, hardeners, moisturizers, etc. Eeewwww! That’s why their ingredients are not listed on the packaging.
With Yummy Dough, you know what you're getting because the all-natural ingredients (ones you can pronounce like sugar and flour!) are right on the package! North American Yummy Dough will be made by an Oregon Tilth certified food manufacturer in the USA.
And here are just some of the creative creatures you can make with Yummy Dough:
Big Backers: See where it all began!
If you pledge $600 or more, you can meet the inventors in beautiful Idstein, Germany! (See the sidebar for details.)
Here are some pictures of our family visiting Stefan and Andrea in Idstein last Christmas. As you can see, it's amazing! You're just waiting for a Disney princess-in-waiting to start dancing and singing down the street!

The Back Story:
Yummy Dough was invented by Stefan and Andrea Kaczmarek after their two daughters asked for craft dough that they could play with as well as eat. It was first mentioned in a radio broadcast in Germany, which increased the interest significantly. Stefan previously had no intention to market the product but decided otherwise after the overwhelming reaction to the broadcast. Now it is enjoyed by children of all ages across Germany and the United Kingdom.
We, Lindy and Chris, became fast friends with Stefan and Andrea after sharing our mutual passion for tactile creativity for children and stories of becoming parent inventors and entrepreneurs. (We invented, manufacture and sell a children’s placemat & craftmat.)
We hope you’ll join us in bringing Stefan and Andrea’s dream of edible modeling dough to the United States!
