These are Teddy favourite music.
I got my Teddy and it looks nice. In the box there was only the Teddy. There was no costume and manual.
Thanks ever so much for successfully sending the bear. My disabled wife is delighted with the "gift" and looks forward to talking to it once the software is finally ready for I phones.
We are both delighted and have enjoyed your entertaining videos sent to KS too!
The people on here and even the gripers gave us a good laugh. Very funny. You coped with it well when all said and done.
Just an aside- the finish of the bear is excellent!
We always believed in you Ashley.
Cinema Paradisio is one of our favourites so thanks.
Still waiting for a bear instead of Insanity ???https://www.facebook.com/groups/SupertoyBackers/
Kickstarter are too busy making their nice new shiny website to care !!!
Why is this BS still being posted instead of tracking numbers? kickstarter are you paying attention to this ?
Let's start a another KS project to fund the purchase of Ashley's medication that seems to keep running out.
I can only take so many spammy emails in a day. This is getting really, REALLY ridiculous now.
I don't even want the product, I just want closure.
I think kickstarter is allowing it.
You know how they send that recap email each year showing the highest funded projects, most backers on a project etc.
Well I think they're planning a craziest project creator award this year and we have a winner with this project ;)
to all those who have not hit the "report" button on the projects homepage;
so if you have not already, could you please do so ? i am sick of these stupid updates im sure you must be too. this is well beyond a joke at this point. his account needs freezing, kickstarter has to step in and do something here.
he quite obviously can not handle the responsibility of a simple project-related-update tool.
@Mark, because he is either medically retarded, high on some illicit substance or medically insane. Undiagnosed is my belief. :)
"No real bear, and too many refunds make Ashley go something something"
"Don't mind if I do!!! Whabadabadooyabbawadwubwub!!!"
Cocaine. It's a hell of a drug.
Think Nice Thoughts
Why spam the same thing over and over again? Every post you make just chips away at any credibility you had left. How about you type something of substance and project related and not just copy and paste dribble from the Internet.
Why post California law? Your in the UK!?!?

Mental anguish is an element of non-economic damages usually sought in personal injury cases, medical malpractice and sometimes defamation cases. Generally, "mental anguish" translates to certain types of suffering that may include distress, anxiety, fright, depression, grief, or trauma. In many jurisdictions, plaintiffs may recover for mental anguish; however, some states set compensation caps on non-economic damages.
Non-economic damages cover certain type of injuries that are not out-of-pocket losses, including pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, humiliation, mental anguish, loss of consortium (companionship) as well as emotional distress. Because these damages are often difficult to calculate and, juries may overcompensate and non-economic damages can exceed actual economic damages. There is no standard formula to calculate these non-economic damages; therefore they vary on a case by case basis and are referred to as subjective damages because they differ according to a plaintiff's personal or subjective experience.
In most cases, to recover non-economic damages, the plaintiff must show by a preponderance of the evidence (which means "more likely than not") that they suffer these injuries. If they cannot meet this burden of proof, they will not recover.
History of Damages for Mental Anguish
Damages for pain and suffering, including mental anguish, date back to Roman delicts, which is equivalent to today's tort system. The basic Roman delicts were iniuria (injury to person) and damnum iniuria datum (damage to property, including slaves). Under iniuria, the wronged party had to show that the tortfeasor acted willfully and intentionally to recover damages. The action was based on the plaintiff's "sense of outrage" and not on actual economic loss. Therefore the plaintiff could be compensated for "pain or distress of mind or body" in addition to any pecuniary damages. Whereas iniuria required a showing of ill will, damnum iniuria datum only required a showing of negligence. Eventually, Roman law evolved into only compensating for pain and suffering where the tort was intentional and only providing pecuniary damages in the sole case of negligence.
Under early English law compensation was afforded for slander and libel, and much later, shame, because shame "was keenly felt."
Compensation Caps on Non-Economic Damages
Several states have sought to control increasing non-economic awards by implementing compensation caps for these types of damages. Most of these compensation caps directly address medical malpractice issues where malpractice premiums rose to a level to become disincentives for physicians to practice. The tort reform of non-economic damages was intended to ameliorate this situation and protect doctors and health facilities from exorbitant damages. However, advocates against caps argue that caps unduly penalize those victims who may require a level of damages to compensate for lifelong losses that can never be regained.
California is one state where the compensation cap on non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases has been codified. Under California's Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act of 1975 (MICRA), a patient's non-economic damages may not exceed $250,000.
Consult an Attorney for Legal Advice
If you suffer mental anguish arising from a case of personal injury or medical malpractice, you may recover non-economic damages. However, in some jurisdictions, you may only be allowed to recover a specified maximum. Also, you will have to prove your injuries by a preponderance of the evidence. Talk with an experienced attorney to discuss the details of your case.

@Virginia, I don't think KS will do anything as the fine print does its best to make them devoid of all responsibility and effectively names them only as a website and transport mechanism for your money. The PayPal avenue is an interesting idea.
@Ashley, I haven't received any response to the handful of emails I sent over the last year. Might simply mean that my spam filter killed it and I missed it, so I thought I'd ask here if you had actually received and responded, just received, or never received them but figured I'd be writing so you responded pre-emptively. ;-)
I like chicken strips
Does Kickstarter do anything about things like this? Has anyone tried to complain through PayPal? I'm pretty sure that once a complaint is logged with them they make the contacts between parties then process the refund. Posting these music videos and other media that have nothing to do with the project really just makes things worse...it just does. Dude, I think you've just got to be HONEST at this point or it will be pretty hard for you to get any good press in the future. Sometimes the way you handle a failure can win you the day in the long run. It's time to put a fork in this one. I look forward to hearing from you soon...and yes me...not in an unrelated "update". There are only a few of us here that have tried to keep in touch with you and keep up with you on this project...for goodness sake...at least pay attention to the few of us that have managed to try to keep an open dialog with you. Anyway...it's time dude...it is time.
Only thing worse than a troll? A spammer.
Stop with all the bullshit. Find yourself a friend somewhere else. The people here only care about you delivering their bears. Stick with that.
I can't wait for the next update to be about him getting dragged off to the looney bin. Then maybe we will get some peace and quite.
Wow sums it up.
Ashley please stop these comments!!! Not cool at all
