The Go community and the programming language has been picking up a ton of momentum lately.

We’ve heard from Go developers that lots of people would love to have their own Gopher - an iconic mascot and one of the most distinctive features of the Go project.

The mascot was designed by Renee French and she kindly approved this campaign. 

We want to produce plush gophers for Go community to enjoy. Our Classic Gopher which measures approximately 5" x 6.7" x 4.5".

But we need you to make this happen! We estimate that it will take 12 weeks from the day we are able to create the order, at the earliest, to when we may ship it to you.

For Kickstarter backers, we are also offering a unique opportunity - a larger scale gopher 12" x 16" x 11". These large gophers are only going to be available via this kickstarter! They will not be for sale afterwards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We are very confident that the order will be completed. It's more a question of timelines at this point.
The gopher design is already well-prototyped by the production facility which is specialized on toys.
If there are too many people willing to have such an awesome gopher we might split our order and the second batch will take another 8 weeks to produce.
