Punny Buns: Cute Plush Bunny Puns

$15,077

280

What is a Punny Bun?

Punny Buns are cute/kawaii bunny rabbits based on various breads and pastries. It all started with the Steamed Bun plush, a grouchy bunny sitting in a steamer inspired by Chinese dim sum steamed pork buns. Soon, the line grew to include many other buns and now Kimchi Kawaii would like to bring them all to huggable life.

 

Kimchi Kawaii is now in its 6th year and looking to move up to the next level. I've found over the past year that plush is definitely a product that can help accomplish this goal.

What's the $7,500 for?

The first plush to fund is a professional manufacture of the Honey Bun, a fuzzy bunny bumble bee (say that three times fast, lol).

Plush will be produced by Shinedown Productions, a company with extensive experience working with small businesses like mine, many of which have had successful Kickstarters.

The goal of $7,500 will cover:

  • Production and shipping costs for the plush
  • Backer rewards, shipping materials and associated postage
  • Taxes, and the 10% combined fee taken out by Kickstarter and Stripe (the company processing payments).

Rewards!

I've been working hard to bring in some really fun rewards for backers, all featuring the Punny Buns. Some items are exclusive to this Kickstarter and will not be released after this campaign is over, so don't miss your chance.

Once again, I'm also pairing up with some fellow artists to bring you even more awesome items.

Note on Rewards:

Can't decide which Bun(s) to make your own? Backers at multiple plush levels will be able to select the plush they want from all unlocked, fully funded plush at the end of the campaign. Choices will be collected via the Kickstarter survey that will be sent out.

 Stretch Goals!

Once Honey Bun funds, we'll start working on the rest of the Punny Bun plush. As each level is met, the plush will unlock and start working their way to full funding.

 Why is the delivery date off in September?

I will put all funded plush into production shortly after the successful close of this campaign. However, I am falling into the summer rush for factories so production time is projected to be longer than the off season time which is usually about 30-40 days.

Once plush are complete, they will then ship via ocean freight which can take several weeks as well. If things move faster than expected, I'll definitely keep everyone posted.

That said, the plush will be here in time for the start of holiday shopping!

Risks and challenges

I already have a successfully funded Kickstarter project (Sweet Dreams Strawberries - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1616607554/sweet-dreams-cute-plush-strawberry) that I've gained a lot of experience from. Many fulfillment processes are in place for smooth shipping of backer rewards.

Shinedown Productions is a well-established company for manufacturing plushies. However, like any collaborative project, production delays with the factory or shipping delays may occur, especially for overseas manufacturing. If these should happen, I will notify all backers through updates here and by email.
