Reduce: ReadySetz scenes are generic, but totally identifiable, so your kids can use one set for a variety of different characters and stories;

Reuse: Your kids can use ReadySetz with a huge variety of their existing toys, so you don’t have to buy (and throw away) new ones.

Recycle: Well, it’s hard to beat 100% recyclable.

With vivid, detailed photorealistic graphics, multiple heights, and 3-D staging areas, it is hard to think of a higher quality backdrop for Toy Photographers and Stop Motion Animators except, maybe, real life. And it’s a great display for action figures, too!

It always starts with an idea for a fun, innovative structure that expresses a timeless scene in a cool, current way.

Then our structural designers and set designers, who have decades of experience, design a structure that has great places for fun and adventure.

Then our illustrators from some of the best art schools in the country create graphics for those structures.

Then it goes to our factory in Southern California to make prototypes, print preliminary graphics, test the prototypes, then print the final graphics. Last, it is folded and glued so that it is easy to fold up and stable when unfolded.

ReadySetz was born in a playroom. When my kids were little, I loved watching (and, when they let me, participating in) their imaginative play. But as electronics became more popular, I worried about effects that the constant use of screens would have on their ability to imagine for themselves, rather than rely on the imagination of others.

Carl and his son, Ben, rocking out. Ben actually became an accomplished drummer; Carl still plays an inflatable guitar.

As I watched them play with their action figures and dolls, I saw an opening - what if they had a totally engaging play scene, something so big and colorful that it could entice them away from screens? But as a parent, I didn’t want something big and heavy sitting in the corner taking up space; it has to fold away for storage easily. And of course, it had to be durable so that it could withstand years of playing. So, I set out to make one for my kids. The first one was a palace. It was really fun, and It became a passion and a decades long hobby.

25 years old and still fun!

Parents, kids, and teachers loved it, and it made me think there might be a bigger need for play scenery like this.

There were many late nights over the dining room table working out early designs and a lot of weekend work with a designer that helped me work through the structural issues.

Although I became pretty used to working at 2:00 am, I also had a “day job” and wanted to be an involved father. Something had to give, so I put the idea of other play scenes aside for a while. That turned out to be over 20 years.

Now that I have the time to do this the way I originally envisioned, I have been lucky enough to work with a terrific team of marketing, design, and production professionals who have enabled me to take my fun, but more primitive designs, to a much higher level. Together we made the "Urban Playset", and the rest was (or will be) history.

As you can see, we have made great progress on the structural design and illustration of the Space Base, but we will need funds to complete enhancements to the design and more detail in the art. We are especially excited about our newest feature, a convertible play platform that enables you to fold the playset in the reverse direction for entirely different play spaces and perspectives.

Last, we need to build up inventory to meet manufacturer’s requirements and, more importantly, to bring the Space Base to you.

With your help, we should be shipping out our Early Bird sets in late September and full production by mid-October.

Risks and challenges

Producing and selling our first design, The Urban Playset, gave us the opportunity to refine and improve our process. With that said, we know the unexpected can happen. If we encounter any delays or project challenges, we will immediately communicate that to our backers.
