Let's face it, kids put up a fight to clean their hands, make a mess while doing it, and struggle with typical soap dispensers.
WETHEADS make cleaning hands fun and brings parents and kids together by creating an engaging experience. Kids can choose from a variety of characters and look forward to clean up time with their new friends. All while keeping hands clean, bathrooms tidy and germs away.
The question is... Which WETHEAD are you?
Firstly, we'd like to thank you in advance for all your support. We're excited and grateful to have an opportunity to showcase our product to the world here at Kickstarter, and we're proud to be part of this community.
As excited as we are to be here, we're going to need all the support we can get to pay for our initial tooling costs, minimum production costs, and pay for all of the awesome rewards we're about to tell you about.
A FEW NOT SO FUN, BUT IMPORTANT FACTS
The Centre for Disease Control lists at least ten times you will need to wash your hands during the day:
- Before eating food
- Before and after caring for someone who is sick
- Before and after treating a cut or wound
- After using the toilet
- After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet
- After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
- After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal waste
- After handling pet food or pet treats
- After touching garbage or waste
- Before, during, and after preparing food
Parents, teachers and caregivers combined simply cannot supervise kids all the time. Kids have to have the tools to make washing fun and effective. This is what WETHEADS was designed to accomplish.
The Centre for Disease Control calls hand washing a "do-it-yourself" vaccine—it involves five simple and effective steps you can take to reduce the spread of diarrheal and respiratory illness, food contamination, etc. The five steps are (Wet, Lather, Scrub, Rinse, Dry)
Lets teach our kids the importance of hygiene and have WETHEADS show them the way.

Risks and challenges
Although we have put in countless hours of preparation, planning, and what-if scenarios, we understand that there are inherent risks and challenges that go along with this — as there are with any new product launch.
Given vast number of bathroom configurations and sink sizes there is the risk that our product may not fit everyone’s sink. We’ve thought this through and will be shipping both standard North American adapter sizes along with the product. We’re also working on contingencies for any custom sinks that require custom adapters. This information will be available on our website in due time and will be available through our customer support.
One of our biggest challenges will be to find a production facility that will adhere to our stringent quality standards and at the same time keep our commitment to the environment. This will be our main focus and we won't accept anything less.
Kickstarter will be available throughout North America. This is a daunting task given our lack of distribution and logistics channels. We’ve secured accounts at several major postal services and have set our shipping costs as low as we possibly could. The more support we receive, the more saving we’ll be able to pass along to our backers.
This is where you come in — help us help you!
And lastly, of course there is the risk that you won't like it. We haven’t encountered a single human being that hasn’t loved every aspect of WETHEADS, but we are willing to admit that there might be that one person out there. This leads us to the risk of spending all of our time, energy, and most of all, capital, in order to bring this product to the world. It is our belief in the product, the brand, all of us as parents, and our unconditional belief that you will love this, that we are willing to risk everything.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
