Kids and teens love to rough-house and crave active play. I invented the Ninja Pillow to promote this activity in a safe way. Everyone loves a Ninja, and the Ninja Pillow is awesome for jumping on, carrying, wrestling, and snuggling with. The Ninja Pillow gets our youth off the couch and gets them to use their imagination. Plus, they can bother their Ninja Pillow, instead of bothering their siblings! Kids love to cuddle with it and sleep with it too- and so do pets!
The Ninja Pillow isn't just for active play. It is also great to lean on, take on long trips in the car, and just to have around for company. Picture the Ninja Pillow as a reading buddy in the classroom, a favorite friend at day care, and a way to make kids feel secure against bad dreams! Plus, they are a healthy way for kids to express frustration or stress. Everyone needs a Ninja Pillow!
The Ninja Pillow is a large cuddly pillow in the shape of Ninja. It is almost 5 feet tall and is filled with 100% polyester fiber-fill. The cover is durable soft cloth. It has a removable mask and belt so that the pillow doesn't tear during play. It is now available in several color options and the traditional black. If you have a REQUEST for a color or pattern, just let me know and I will accommodate it!
I would like to get the Ninja Pillow into large-scale production and get it into the homes of families everywhere. I think it can be the next "big thing." I can complete small orders myself, but I will use the money raised from crowd funding to finance large material orders and will either hire-out to produce large orders of pillows or, better yet, will build out my own small warehouse and production facility and produce the Ninja Pillow locally. I would like to provide jobs for local people and share the success of the Ninja Pillow with my community. Plus, I really want a dedicated area near my home where I can continue to create and invent. If I can raise enough money with crowd funding, I will call this the Ninja Lab!
I have several auxiliary ideas to follow the Ninja Pillow theme. I have designed some apparel items, a comic, and I have even written a theme song! I am a very creative person. I have written and illustrated children's books and a poetry book, and the Ninja Pillow and its associated products are another fun, practical, and kid-friendly offshoot of my creative spirit.

Risks and challenges
I can fulfill the limited-edition orders that I have specified for this project myself. The materials I require are readily available from multiple manufacturers and I do not foresee problems with fulfillment.
If I receive thousands of unlimited orders for the Ninja Pillow, and I really hope I do, the challenge will be fulfilling those with large-scale production by making them all myself, contracting to local seamstresses, out-sourcing to another state, or building my own small facility (the Ninja Lab) and hiring an employee. I have set the delivery date for the unlimited Ninja Pillows much later in the year to accommodate this challenge. If the orders are few, then delivery will be much sooner.
If my ultimate goal is met that I receive numerous orders, then I will either 1) build my own small facility on my property which will consist of a wired metal building with storage and high-tech sewing machines or 2) contract out to a reputable, U.S. manufacturer which can produce my design. I really want option 1, so that I can hire local folks and be able to oversee production myself.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
