Imagine a ball to play anywhere you want. Fun to make, great to kick, damage proof. A ball that fits your back-pocket!

We are proud to present: FOOOTY, inspired by the beautiful game of football and the creative possibilities of Lego. We have created a unique, patented 2D construction element that enables you to create all popular ball shapes in 3D to kick and throw around

The basic FOOOTY ball can be created out of 10 elements that are strongly connected by clicking them into each other.  Out of 10 elements you can also create 5 juggling balls or a rugby ball.  

But when you use your imagination you can turn the FOOOTY elements into just about anything that you can dream up. The fun starts when creating your own shape! Curious?

Are you ready to play? We are NOW looking for 1000 players to reach our Kickstarter goal. 

LET'S PLAY MORE

Recent studies prove that regular moments of PLAY ignite creative thinking and stimulate social interaction. Playing helps you to achieve a healthier body and mind.

We believe that everyone is entitled to have more time to PLAY. And FOOOTY may easily help you to achieve this, whenever, wherever. It’s our mission is to get the world to play more.

So join our campaign today and inspire everyone to play!

Watch this video when we tested FOOOTY in the park and sense the feeling of discovery and creative energy.

The power of PLAY works for everyone. Only imagine what could happen if 1000 players use their imagination and create whatever they can think of with FOOOTY. Opportunities are endless; we can’t wait to see what more people around the world can create & do together. 

TEAM ON A MISSION

FOOOTY is an initiative of Jean-Pierre Raes, founder of Westerlab, a Amsterdam based co-creation platform aimed at developing & realizing new ideas with positive impact. JP loves smart products that bring people together, stimulate creativity and on top of that, make life more fun and spread happiness.

Passionate about playing and always missing a ball for his kids to play with when on the move, JP teamed up with industrial designer Lard Breebaart of Natwerk to find a solution and designed the FOOOTY. Production development and sustainability research is done in close cooperation with engineering studio BetterFutureFactory.

KICKSTARTER GOAL: 1000 FOOOTY-players

Until now, we lasercut each FOOOTY-element individually, only for personal use and test drives. We believe that FOOOTY deserves a much bigger stage, since everyone in the world has a right to play with FOOOTY.

To make our product come alive & kicking, we are initiating this Kickstarter project. We need sufficient support to develop a production mould to produce the first batch of FOOOTIES and minimize material waste.

Our goal is to reach at least 1000 PLAYERS. We estimate that if 500 people would pre-order at least two FOOOTIES, we will reach our necessary production investment goal of 15.000 euro.

So, support us today if you love to play and if you want others to play as well. By supporting us today, you will become one of the first worldwide FOOOTY owners!

KICKSTARTER REWARDS

For your support, you will receive the first FOOOTIES produced in a batch and … endless gratitude for helping us make this happen ☺. We offer different packages to become a player yourself or to enable your kids, friends, schools, colleagues or business partners to play more.

Time to delivery: you will receive your FOOOTY reward before the summer starts! The FOOOTIES are nicely stacked with a band to keep them together.

FOOOTY: materials

The first batch of FOOOTY will be made out of 100% recyclable Polypropylene. PP has a high impact resistance, is odourless and safe to use for kids and adults. This material is extremely tough and therefore, may be hinged and folded endlessly without the material breaking.

We feel very much the obligation to design in a responsible way to protect the environment as much as we can. Together with the BetterFutureFactory, we continue to explore how we can improve sustainability performance of the FOOOTY. For example, we are exploring how we could use bottle caps, and upgrade them into FOOOTIES.

Join our campaign and let’s play!

Risks and challenges

We have done many tests to find the perfect design to offer the best performance possible. We want to make the first batch for all backers with injection molding, to realize superior quality and to minimize material waste. For back-up we are able to make enough FOOOTIES with high pressure watercut. So, 100% guarantee that you will get your dose of creative energy!
We think it is key for the longterm success of this product that it gives a superior level of satisfaction, energy and inspiration. We will do everything to make your support in FOOOTY memorable.
