For example, here are some stats based on total GitHub pushes:
Most of the languages mentioned above for many years have their own well-known mascots: PHP Elephpant, Java Duke, Go Gopher and many more.
We decided to manufacture the first prototype of a plushy rhino and start a campaign on Kickstarter to raise enough money to produce rhinos and spread them around the world.
Our Classic Rhino which measures approximately 10" x 6" x 4". Its tiny version is only 5" x 3.5" x 2". For Kickstarter backers, we are also offering a unique opportunity - a larger scale gopher 16" x 12" x 11". These large gophers are only going to be available via this Kickstarter! They will not be for sale afterward.
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.
Our first campaign
We'd like to mention that this is our second Kickstarter campaign. Last year we successfully started and implemented a similar campaign producing more than 300 plushy Gophers for Go-developers.
We received lots of feedback from previous campaign backers and with all that experience, we are sure that we'll be able to manufacture as many rhinos as you need and deliver them on time.
Spead the word
Risks and challenges
Since this is our second campaign on the Kickstarter, we are even more confident that the order will be completed. We are aware now of all potential bottlenecks and know how to handle them.
The rhino design is already well-prototyped by the production facility which is specialized on toys.
The only concern remains that if there are too many people willing to have such an awesome rhino we might split our order and the second batch will take another 8 weeks to produce.
