Ships Ahoy! GoldieBlox is on the boat…

Out on the ocean, far from all the commotion… GoldieBlox is on the slow boat from the factory!

Mark your calendars; the toys will arrive on or around February 26th (which is also Debbie’s 30th birthday!)

If you are expecting a toy in February, the wait is almost over. Once the boat clears customs, the Goldie team will be hustling to pack up the toys so they will arrive on your doorstep in a matter of weeks! We could not be more thrilled that all of your girls finally get to play with Goldie, and we're so excited to see all of the creativity that erupts from their imaginative minds. Thank you all again for your patience and support, this wouldn’t be possible without you!

Another update… Team Goldie has moved! We found the perfect office...we can even walk around without bumping into each other.  And this office actually has windows (see below).  We painted our walls Goldie yellow, and the team already feels so inspired. We anticipate lots of creative ideas to flow in this office, and we'll be sure to keep you posted on the best (and maybe the worst!) of them.

Keep your fingers crossed for us this weekend.  Goldie's headed to the big apple and the team will be showing her off at Toy Fair.  This is Goldie's coming out party, the toy industry's first chance to see the toy in person.  We'll let you know how it goes, but we have a feeling it's going to be amazing.  You've given us faith that so many people out there want more for their girls.

Until next time...

Yours,

Team Goldie

      Haven't reieved my box yet, in the USA. Anyone else still waiting?

    2. Creator Shane Stevens on April 16, 2013

      Mine just arrived in Melbourne, Australia! I'll open it with my daughter this weekend. I'll take a photo of her wearing the yellow t-shirt :)

    3. Creator Tiago Delavi Damian on March 29, 2013

      Hi! mine havent arrived yet, can i have tracking number?

    4. Creator Scott Munoz on March 12, 2013

      No offense, but you got your funding through Kickstarter, not FaceBook. It is only fair that you post updates to kickstarter.

    5. Creator Kimberly on March 12, 2013

      I was wondering the same thing too! Glad I'm not the only one, and thanks to those who gave a little info about the wait at Customs. Hope to hear more soon.

    6. Creator Aaron Egely on March 12, 2013

      Facebook says it is stuck in Customs. Hopefully, things will free up soon.

    7. Creator Victoria Laird on March 10, 2013

      Where are the toys? Over a month ago you said we would have them in February. Why no updates?

    8. Creator Peter Royal on March 9, 2013

      Agreed, an update would be nice, since its been a month since the last and the estimated delivery has past.

    9. Creator William Robinson on March 8, 2013

      You've had a lot of people asking for updates to let us know what the delay on delivery is, and yet, no update. Is there a problem?

    10. Creator Aela on March 8, 2013

      According to their facebook the toys are healdup at customs.

    11. Creator Gray on March 6, 2013

      So I guess the toys aren't arriving in February. Think you could provide an update, now that it's been almost a month since the last one?

    12. Creator Scott Munoz on March 6, 2013

      Any update on shipping?

      Thanks

    13. Creator Greene Shepherd on March 3, 2013

      Has it shipped yet? I checked my pledge address and it is correct, but I have not received my pledge yet.

    14. Creator Jody Bjornstad on March 2, 2013

      Not sure bieber have you my shipping address. Please email me to confirm. Bricolaureate. Thank you!

    15. Creator Zohreh Jabbari on March 1, 2013

      I'm in Canada, and still haven't received anything. Is there a way to track the packages?

    16. Creator Deborah Dilks on February 28, 2013

      I realize the snowstorms we have had in the Midwest delayed delivery here. Do you have an updated estimate of when we may receive our GoldieBlox orders?

    17. Creator Mary on February 19, 2013

      Not to hurry or stress you but do you have a delivery estimate for England? Thanks

    18. Creator flashthedog on February 8, 2013

      Are t-shirts still being sent?

    19. Creator Glint on February 7, 2013

      Unless I'm mistaken, that 26th Feb timeline is the estimated date for American delivery, correct? Us international backers will be left to the (not so) tender mercies of the US International Post system once it arrives in your hands.

      This is not a complaint mind you (not unless you also run the USPS in your spare time....), just a clarification so other international backers don't get unrealistic expectations as to delivery.

    20. Creator Yvonne on February 7, 2013

      FastCompany had an article on why many Kickstarter projects were late in delivery. Might be good to post to website. Glad you are able to move now. Anticipation!!.

    21. Creator Paul Im on February 7, 2013

      Was there a survey sent? I can't remember, and I don't want to miss this!

    22. Creator Scott Munoz on February 7, 2013

      Tighter than I wanted to hear, but my niece is going to be super excited to get it. I was hoping to give it to her for her birthday on March 4. Here's hoping! So glad this is coming in so close to the promised date. It's a real rarity as I have learned.

    23. Creator David Stephenson on February 7, 2013

      Can hardly wait to get Goldie in my granddaughter's hands! Cute picture!

    24. Creator Mike DeSanctis on February 7, 2013

      So, the wording of your post popped something into my head. What kind of regulation and/or testing is being done on these for toxins like lead?

    25. Creator Susan Cohen on February 7, 2013

      Hi:
      I'm so excited for you and for all the girls getting their Goldies. Best of luck at Toy Fair. You will be great!

    26. Creator Nancy on February 7, 2013

      Can't wait to check out Goldie Blox! That's a great photo of you girls - love, love, love!
