About this project
Little Clone started at the birthday party of a friend in Argentina.
He was opening gifts and when he opened this box it had the wow!! effect with everyone in the room.
He received this cartoonish replica doll of himself, we were all looking at this doll, and started to have fun twisting it, making it sit down, handstand, Buddha pose, rock climbing , taking pictures, cool look, sharing a drink with it.
No questions that the clone did steal part of the party and started to be part of the group. I had seen personalized plush bears, stuffed dolls, chocolates, flowers for a gift! But this is different and we were all wondering how to get one…
The doll was a creation of Luz and Alberto, for an art gallery.
When Luz and Alberto showed the doll at the gallery, it was an instant success, the guests were asking to have a doll with the face of their friends, and even a lawyer hired Luz and Alberto to make these dolls for her partners at the firm.
But selling dolls was not in their line of business!
Later I met with Luz and Alberto and convinced them to start Little Clone and bring it to America.
We are turning this art minded doll into a designed product that we can retail; that means product development, sourcing, finding reliable vendors, printers, quality parts, manufacturing space, shipping, samples, trips , start our first production run, website, and launching it!
Little Clone is 12 inches tall with a body made of discarded fabric strips from textile factories, the face is a picture sent by the buyer that we print on canvas, and then sewn to the body. It can also come with a frame to hang on the wall, and accessories for personalization. Each clone is HAND MADE.
You can be part of our project, and be the first one to have a clone of your buddy, couple, co-worker, or family!
You can have fun with us, make a pledge!

Risks and challenges
Every project has some risks, but we are doing our best to avoid all of them.
There are several challenges we are working on, the most importants are: To improve the production process
since it is 100% hand made as of right now; Lower the cost of the framed box which is very high right now (this means new vendors/shipping/samples/etc); and Move some
of the production to the States to facilitate shipments. Not to mention the challenge of raising some capital to jump start all this.
For those of you who want your clones by the holidays, we guaranty that we will "ship" them as soon as we hit the target
By raising money with Kickstarter we plan to speed up our conquest of shipping little clones to the world, we have the expertise
in different fields, production, logistics, product design, marketing, and a lot of confidence in what we do.
Come with us, let's clone ourselves ;)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
