Purrista Pawfee 2: Cute Coffee Shop Cat Plush

$16,151

281

In the beginning of 2016, I launched the Purrista Pawfee plush Kickstarter. This series features cute cats combined with coffee house culture. The project successfully funded and the feedback has been that people want to collect the rest of the Purrista Pawfee series.

So I am proud to introduce the Torta-shell, a larger plush perfect for hugging! Torta-shell's name plays off the Italian word for cake (torta) and the tortoiseshell coloring, popular on cats (chocolate browns and oranges).

The Torta-shell is one of my larger plush measuring approximately 9.5" long and 5" tall (main body) which is perfect for hugging. This cute cat features sparkly strawberry ears and floppy front paws.

All backers to this project will be the first to receive their plush if we reach full funding. Also, backers will get their plush at a special Kickstarter-only price! How cool is that?

Who's making them?

All plush will be manufactured by Shinedown Productions, the same company I used for the Punny Buns project in 2015 and the first round of Purrista Pawfee. They are known for helping small, independent artists' creations to life in quality plush form. Each plush will be of super soft minky with professionally embroidered features.

The goal of $8,500 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).

Shipping

Just a note about shipping - since Torta-shell is a larger plush, shipping rates are higher than previous Kickstarters I've done, especially for international shipping. I tried to find the cheapest way possible, but there was only so much I could do. I wish I could just magic them all to you without the postage!

Also note: international backers are responsible for any customs taxes and/or fees that their package may assess.

Estimated arrival is late December/January for domestic backers, a little longer for international shipments. Unfortunately, I can NOT guarantee plush level delivery in time for Christmas. 

Rewards

I have a bunch of fun things lined up for backers who help bring this project to life. Check the chart below!

 

Stretch Goals

If we meet our goal before the campaign is over, we will open up stretch goals. The first two will be the lavender and green Mewcarons, buddies to the popular pink Mewcaron from the Purrista Pawfee 1 project. More goals will open if these fund as well in the time allotted!

Add-on Shop

See something you want in addition to your backer package? Use the handy add-on shop within the Kickstarter project! Simply chose the items you like and adjust your pledge accordingly (ex. you back at the $22 level and want to add a shirt, you would adjust your pledge to $44). All add-on shop prices include the added shipping for that item. Remember the add-on shop is only available during the Kickstarter.

 

Risks and challenges

I already have three successfully funded Kickstarter projects -
• Sweet Dreams Strawberries: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1616607554/sweet-dreams-cute-plush-strawberry

• Punny Buns: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1616607554/punny-buns-cute-plush-bunny-puns/description

• Purrista Pawfee: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1616607554/purrista-pawfee-cute-coffee-cat-plush/description

I've gained a lot of experience from these. 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.
