Hi everyone! 

Packaging, stickers and posters are now printed and done and we are locking addresses for shipping as we will run setup for our first large scale production tomorrow after lunch. So we hope that production will run smoothly on friday and that we will start shipping monday next week, incredibly exciting. 

On another note Gothenburg has a Science festival right now and we have several Strawbees activities with kids building large structures around town. We visited our fractal workshop at the end of visiting hours yesterday and saw four huge Sierpinski Tetrahedrons towering over enthusiastic kids.

To all our backers in SF that will visit the Bay Area Maker faire we invite you to come by our spot there and if you have the time see Erik's talks about the creation of Strawbees.

We are so sorry for these repeated delays and really look forward to ship this wonderful little toy to all of you who have helped us get them into the world. Thanks again for backing us and lets hope the first real Strawbees batch leaves Gothenburg next week. We will give you more information and updates about the production tomorrow and Friday so stay tuned!

      Will your packages make it to the USA before May 30th? I'll be moving at this point and traveling for 2 months. If it will take longer, please let me know so that I can change my address. Thanks - Caroline Stevens, Chicago, IL
