About this project
What is Pookiepak?
Pookiepak is a bottle for kids. The bottle’s ergonomic shape accommodates a children’s hand. Its design allows it to have a secondary use as a construction toy without the need of any additional parts and unlimited combinations. Pookiepak is more than just a bottle. It’s also a toy. Providing kids a bottle, a learning tool and recycle awareness. Connecting kids and parent to a whole new experience. Stories, characters, and entertainment support the product. We invite you and your kids to discover the world of Pookiepak and be part of the movement… “be part of the orbit”.
Our Culture / Be part of the orbit.
The expression synthesizes the Pookiepak culture, representing the 4 stages of the product: drink, reuse, build and learn. Pookiepak is more than just a product. Pookiepak is an experience. Kids become part of the orbit when they DRINK their favorite beverage. Also, they become aware of recycling and can REUSE Pookiepak because it provides a secondary use. Pookiepak is also a construction toy that allows kids to BUILD without the need of any additional parts. Pookiepak develops construction skills and with unlimited combinations it provides a play value that cultivates imagination. And finally, Pookiepak allows kids to LEARN through stories and entertainment based on the world of Pookiepak and it’s characters.
Pookiepak started out as a school project. As I began sculpting the bottle, I extracted the center to make it ergonomic. Immediately, I realized the potential of the design. I designed the cap and the bottom to fit into the holes so I could interlock them and build something. After prototyping several bottle and constructing with them I could only think about how much fun kids would have with this product. So, I decided to fully develop Pookiepak because I realized that I had come up with an idea to give a simple product a complete experience for the kids. As I spoke to parents I realized the frustration they felt when shopping for their kids. Overall parents wanted a safe, smart, and cool product for their children that could help them learn and share. At this point I decided that Pookiepak had to be all that. This decision has pushed me for the last 2 years to thoroughly develop the bottle and to create all the elements that support Pookiepak. Pookiepak is ready to continue development and needs your help so our kids and the “not so kids” like us can enjoy it.

To get Pookiepak in the market! In order to do that we need your support so we can create molds, test production samples, and a production run that can cover the Kickstarter awards. Pookiepak wants to use Kickstarter as a tool to prove that the product works and people like you will love it.
This will help the product be ready to present to potential buyers that can license Pookiepak and get it in the stores.
But first, we will serve all the Kickstarter contributors. After pledges are collected we will begin mold development, production and label printing with our partners in the US and overseas.
Risks and challenges
Manufacturing the product has many challenges. Pookiepak is a combination of many elements that individually need a lot of attention. We’ve coordinated with all our partners to develop the product and create our strategy.
In this complex process we want to produce a great product with outstanding quality. We have quotes and time frames from our partners but they could vary because we are still in the launching stage of production.
The development process will take several months and we hope to be ready to ship your Pookiepak products by August. There is always a possibility of unforeseen delays, but we will make every effort possible and expect to ship Pookiepak on time.
We will provide updates of the manufacturing process to all our Pookiepakers through Kickstarter and Pookiepak.com.
