About this project
Hey Babies! Let's cut to the chase!
The purpose of this Kickstarter campaign is to enable Little Baby's to sell pints in grocery stores. We would like to use containers that we as consumers can re-use in our homes and not just throw away into a trash can! READ ON!
Little Baby's Ice Cream produces Handmade, Small-Batch, Super-Premium Ice Creams and Non-Dairy Ice Creams in the East Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! We combine one-of-a-kind flavors with attention towards creating a singularly unique atmosphere for our customers! Listen to Music For Ice Cream and BE EASY! Melting your mind is free!
We've been profiled many places! From philly.com to zagat.com to the American Hipster Youtube Series to the ever popular Yelp.com (ps -- at last viewing, we are a Top 10 restaurant on yelp! thanks everyone!)
This we know and we want to share with you: ICE CREAM IS A FEELING!
Currently, we scoop from a Totally Custom and Tricked Out Tricycle, nicknamed the FlavorBlaster One. This is the Galleon of the fleet!, anchoring operations that also include Scoop Service Kiosks at Union Transfer Concert Hall, Morgan's Pier Outdoor Riverfront Restaurant and Beer Garden, and our World Headquarters Full-Service Ice Cream Bar (opening this summer!).
"But where can we buy your Ice Cream in stores?"
The money from this Kickstarter will be used to front the cost of the reusable (by the consumer) Pint Containers (top lid and bottom container) that we would like to use and the associated packaging materials (design, stickers, labels, etc) necessary to sell our Ice Cream wholesale to fine groceries in the Philadelphia region.
This handy pint can be repurposed in the consumer's home in an endless variety of ways! Put M&Ms in it! Use it to drink water! Plant a beautiful flower in it! Use it as a Bathtime Buddy!
Once integrated into Little Baby's Ice Cream World Headquarters of Ice Cream Making (2311 Frankford Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19123), these containers will complete Our Arsenal of Ice Cream preparing and serving equipment and machines for the already-upon-us Summer of 2012 (yikes!)
Read the Rewards Section to see what we are willing to do for the money! Donors can choose rewards that contain Ice Cream! Some rewards are marked by that personal touch that we are famous for. Some rewards contain Immortal Glory. Your name could live on forever!
No Rules on Planet Earth!

The containers are made with High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), has SPI resin code '2', and is widely recyclable in every municipality that recycles plastics (even Mackinaw, Michigan!). It is most often "downcycled" into a wide variety of hard plastics and is always in demand in industry.
Our containers will be 'natural' colored, so they are not dyed white or black.
This substances is reusable in the home for a wide-variety of applications and withstands dishwashing.
