Feast your eyes on all you'll receive in our newest exclusive reward level:

The original 6 Vamplets have not been available for 5 years! 3 sets are being released for this Kickstarter.

FERALINE the Werewolf Baby

Many of you have been terrified by Howliss, our Werewolf Baby boy. Meet his bratty little sister Feraline! She is the first Vamplet baby that can lie down or sit up (depending on her mood).

Feraline the Werewolf Baby can sit... or lie down! And she insists on wearing her black tutu at all times!

DECAYETTE SHROUDMORE the Mummy Baby

Our next baby is decaying by the second and needs you to hold her tight. Meet Decayette Shroudmore, the Mummy Baby. She is brainless but good-natured, and tends to wander around aimlessly most of the day.

That's a wrap! Your Mummy Baby may wander off so keep an eye on her.

 Teenager Destiny Harper is at a crossroads in her life. Graduation is coming, and she has zero prospects for the future. Answering an ad for ‘The Night Care Nursery’ seems like a great idea, until she is magically transported to Gloomvania, where dark creatures lurk the streets, and the world is being mysteriously overrun by baby vampyres and other assorted baby monsters called Vamplets! Can Destiny serve her term as Governess of ‘The Nightmare Nursery’ and return home? Fairy tales get a modern update in this coming of age tales of monsters, mayhem, and magic!

Pledging for one or more babies...

When pledging for one or more of our new mischievous babies, please understand you can select whichever ones you want. If the campaign is successfully funded, you'll receive a survey asking which of our diapered darlings you desire. We'll make sure the Vamplets of your choice are delivered directly to your home by Carrier Bat Express. That is, of course, only if you choose to bring such danger into your human home!

Risks and challenges

This is my third Kickstarter project and (fortunately) I think I've worked out all the kinks regarding designing the patterns and manufacturing the final babies in the factory. All the patterns and prototypes have been completed here in the US. The only delay I can foresee is if the factory takes longer than expected to source the materials based on my fabric swatches I provide them. I selected 14 different fabrics to create these samples. Sometimes these materials are not readily available in China and it requires some searching to locate them. This has not been a problem in the past two campaigns, and I fully expect these 4 babies to enter the mortal world without a hitch.
