About

Please back this project to receive one set of puzzle.

(please see the rewards)

A Dream:

I just created this new type of puzzle.  I believe it's a very good idea.  The toy is fun to play, and it also helps kids smarter.  Moreover, the ship looks great after we put all the pieces together.  It can be displayed in your rooms.  I HAVE A DREAM.  I want this new type of puzzle to become popular.  Kids want to play them instead of playing their tablets.  

A BIGGER DREAM: I wish I could have enough money to build my own manufacture plant in the U.S, so I could create more jobs.  I could rent a space and buy machines to manufacture toys. 

How the ship looks like:

There are two versions of the ship

The length of the ship: 12cm (4.72 inches)

Featured on:

Rewards:

What the funds are for? 

  • Manufacturing the ship
  • Packaging 
  • Building a website
  • Hiring more designers
  • Operating the company
  • Traveling to potential distributors, so the ship can be sold in stores to public
  • Renting a space for inventory and offices

Time line:

In order to save time, I will start working on the molds for mass production as soon as I reach the goal $10,000.

1. After the campaign: (the first month)

  • Re-testing the prototype for the mass produced version
  • 3D printing the original version

2. The second month:

  • Making molds for mass production
  • Shipping out the original version (I might able to ship earlier than the estimated delivery date)

3.  The third month:

  • Mass producing 
  • And shipping out within this month (I might able to ship earlier than the estimated delivery date)

PLEASE CONTACT ME WHEN YOU:

  • just want to say "it's a good idea"
  • see potential of my idea
  • want to share your ideas that help me to make this toy popular
  • have any question or suggestion for me

PLEASE SUPPORT MY IDEA BECAUSE I HAVE NOT ONLY THIS SHIP, BUT ALSO I HAVE MORE TOYS ARE COMING BASED ON THIS 3D PUZZLE IDEA.

PLEASE JOIN WITH ME TO CREATE GOOD TOYS FOR OUR CHILDREN.

Risks and challenges

Some challenges that I may face:
1. Having problems with the molds: because the pieces of the ship are small, so it might create the problems with the molds. I will scale the ship bigger until the problem solved. It might be easier to make the molds for mass production. Moreover, it's also safer for kids to play with bigger pieces.
2. Will the plan be delayed? yes, it can be. That's why I set the time line longer than it's needed to produce 3000 sets.
- Re-testing the prototype for the mass produced version takes only 7 days, and making molds takes 30 days max. I set the time line 2 months for those, so I will have plenty of time to address problems if they arise.
- Mass production takes 15 days, but I set it one month.
3. There might be some delays because I partner up with a toy manufacture in china. I check everything they do such as prototype, material, or boxes. They will send the sample to me to get approved. It means I have to wait for the sample come into the U.S. However, I already counted the waiting time into the lead-time. It should not be a problem.
4. I have been talking to several toy manufactures in China, so I don't depend on one manufacture.
5. I have professional U.S company 3Dprint the original version. I will put orders as soon as the campaign ends. There will be no problems also.
6. Why do I hire companies to produce the ship? It costs a lot to buy machines that can do great works. I don't know how much fund I can raise, outsourcing is my best option right now. IF I HAVE MORE MONEY IN THE FUTURE, I WILL BUILD MY OWN MANUFACTURE PLANT IN THE U.S.
