The Long and Winding Road

Hi Everyone,

I am so very pleased to tell you on the 19th this month February ALL your Supertoys will have been manufactured at the factory.

Its been a long wait, I am sorry. We had Christmas then the Chinese had their New Year which is like our Christmas. Its the time of year when Chinese workers take two weeks off work to go home to their families, see mum and dad. Its not like us in the west where we can book holidays, for the Chinese its fixed. Life is tough, I know China will pull through, I have total faith in them.

I have attached some photographs.

Here they are testing the Bluetooth.

 The PCB (the Electronic soldering bits)

Turn away now if you want to see the inside of Teddy :-)

Putting the eyes into Teddy do not look if your squeamish :-)

Putting on his Skin... told you not to look 

Now we put in the fluffy bits... see the green sack with white stuffing

Time for checking there is enough filling :-)

Look good to me :-)

They are happy, soon they will be on their way to YOU. Teddy looking for a good owner, a nice home :-)

This sums up HOW I FEEL.

The long and winding road that leads to your door Will never disappear I've seen that road before it always leads me here Leads me to your door The wild and windy night that the rain washed away Has left a pool of tears crying for the day Why leave me standing here, let me know the way Many times I've been alone and many times I've cried Anyway you'll never know the many ways I've tried And still they lead me back to the long and winding road You left me standing here a long, long time ago Don't leave me waiting here, lead me to you door But still they lead me back to the long and winding road You left me standing here a long, long time ago Don't keep me waiting here (Don't keep me wait), lead me to you door Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

"The Long and Winding Road" is a ballad written by Paul McCartney (credited to Lennon–McCartney). It is the tenth track on the Beatles' album Let It Be. It became the group's 20th and last number-one song in the United States on 13 June 1970,[3] and was the last single released by the quartet while all four remained alive. "The Long and Winding Road" was listed with "For You Blue" as a double-sided hit when the single hit number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1970.

      If anyone is in New York. Teddy is being shown at the NY Toy Fair. His commercial NEW name is Wiki. So to all those who missed the Kickstarter he will be in all shops from Toys R Us to Walmart globally this year as Wiki. We have plans hush hush :-)

      @Sai there are two shipments, one to USA to cover USA/S.America/Canada the other UK to cover UK, Europe and Rest of the World. The shipments are by sea. Sorry we cannot afford air as we promised free shipping, also the volume its more economical. This is what the factory said.

      Dear Ashley

      Good day to you !

      the 2000 pcs teddies will finished on 20th this month. Now please start to arrange to pay the balance for my factory. so that I can make a ready to ship the goods to you.

      The invoice attached, pls check it.

      If any questions. feel free to let me know.

      All the best
      Michael

      It takes 4-5 weeks by ship to USA/UK, then expect 1-2 weeks max to you.

      Ashley

      ps You will get Supertoy first, he a rare, collectible, as he will never be made again :-(

      Only the global toy distributor, their version will be made, for all the shops everywhere later this year.

      Congratulations on getting to this stage, I am very much looking forward to seeing the final product. I do have one question. I backed for the Supertoy Limited edition (the first 300 ever made! He comes with his own Supertoy Outfit ready to save the world and an embroidered number from 033-300). Will I still get one like this?

      My daughter was wondering (i am too) when we are expected to get the teddy.
      Will it ship from china to australia.
      or will it go to the USA first and take the long way home.
      will it start on the 19th of february or will it want to stay in china for a bit longer.

      Unfortunately, I had to read that Karsten is no longer on the team. I thought he is the programmer of Teddy? What should happen to the app? When will the app for iOS be available?

      Dr.Wallace is the father of chatbot technology.

      Without him we would not exist.

      Thank you Dr.Wallace for giving us the technology to make a toy.

      To please millions of children.

      Get well soon. XXX

    12. Supertoy Robotics Creator on

      I am giving something away. You, anyone, can create your own chatbot. Its the power. If you dont like what I create make your own :-) with PANDORABOTS. Hope that's loud enough for Harry and his Bro.

    13. Supertoy Robotics Creator on

      We separated with Karsten, but its like any marriage, I hope for a reconciliation. He has created great things, I am sure there is room for everyone to benefit from what we are doing. I see Kar's as my old friend. He may come back and help us. Its up to him.

      The technology behind this is due to one man. Who just had open heart surgery.

      He created all chatbots as we know them.

      He is the true creator.

      No.1

      Last week he had open heart surgery he is on the mend I have been told.

      His name is

      Dr.Wallace

      "The time has come," the Walrus said,
      "To talk of many things:
      Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
      Of cabbages--and kings--
      And why the sea is boiling hot--
      And whether pigs have wings."

    15. David Neudorfer on

      btw Congratulations! I'm very happy for both you (Ashley and Karsten) !!

    16. David Neudorfer on

      For the love of God, why are all the Chinese factory people dressed in coats indoors? Do they not heat their workplaces? Be honest, were there pics with little kids working that you excluded? Just kidding!! Awesome to see progress made, looking forward to getting Teddy!!
