Look up to the Skies (Now dears, this is where the opera section comes in!)

I loved what Thomson did, Teddy will also soon be in the Skies :)

I am starting to feel Supertoy is my Bohemian Rhapsody. There has been a delay because up until last week I was still getting change address off people, now close to 150. I have decided to send the first 300 ever made (limited ed) first. 1/ Because they are the first 300 :) 2/ to test and make sure my logistics company does their job (imagine at this stage I trust them with the whole lot and they vanished or got lost, I think you guys would hang draw and quarter me). As soon as I know next week they are on their way safely will then send the rest. All will have tracking and I will personally email each limited edition backer of their tracking no. The Teddies go first. Then the costumes, I am having them custom made by another manufacturer in China.

On another note. I dont normally promote other Kickstarters but thought this one project worth mentioning for all those who cant wait for Supertoy.

They are also available for sale since January this year on Amazon, Toys R Us, Walmart etc. Your guaranteed to get this toy 100% if you back their Kickstarter.

In fact Avanti toys has gone one step better and have a patent.

I dont know how anyone can patent an international communication Bluetooth with a device.

A bit like saying I patent a Bluetooth working in my car.

Anyway, that's for the lawyers to decide.

As Freddie says "Now dears, this is where the opera section comes in!"

For the Bo Rhap purists among us I end with this.

Love you Freddie RIP XXX

If your a Queen fan this is amazing reading.

      It's all coming together. I'm very happy and excited!

      A long road, but it looks like this is coming together! Plus the software does look (and sound) good. It is a good idea to test the shipping channels, and a common practice on other Kickstarter projects I've seen (including my own). Best wishes for successful shipping, Ashley!

      Nice work, Ashley. Glad to hear things are wrapping up well. I'm sure for each one of the gripes we've seen on here, you've probably been personally chastising yourself as well, and that's a tough spot to get out of. I'm not going to say it's been an easy road, but it's been an experience for everyone. I sincerely hope you're able to take what you've learned about multinational production and logistics and turn it into a blazingly successful next project. I enjoy people who are passionate about their work, and I don't think anyone here can claim you lack passion, so whether or not people claim this project is a strike against you, I think the rule of thumb is you're allowed three, right? ;) ... Take care, and I'm looking forward to seeing the results of this journey. Thank you for seeing it through.

      Next week I send 500 to a charity that is very close to my heart in the USA. I will not say which one, if you followed my updates its there. Do you think for 1 minute I would let them down? or go back on my promises to them? A Promise is a promise. So God help me. I am religious. But I do sometimes miss the road. Back on it now.

      @Tim thats a good point. I will post next week an exact date.

      @Teddy your white with a blue cuff hair :)

      @ Michele you will be next promise

      Why don't you set actual dates for things. Rather then saying one will ship "after". That way backers actually have a feeling that this will happen. And then not actually fail.

      Everything matters to me to bring you Supertoy. I have put my life, savings and debt into this to make it happen. Put up with trolls (call them trolleys makes life easier). Sorry I dont frequent here more often, it gets me so depressed to listen to Trolleys lovely comments. I have a surprise for everyone which you will get in time. Take care. Love. Ashley
