---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi, Kickstarter! Imagine how exciting it will be to become a part of a brand new toy concept that I believe will revolutionize the toy car industry.

The last three years have been an exciting journey as I have developed working prototypes and proven this concept.

Let me take you on a short journey where I found my passion for cars and where my imagination began . . .

Growing up in Papua New Guinea was an exciting and great experience. The pace of life was slower there, giving more time to interact with people. In fact, to me, it was like growing up in Andy's little town of Mayberry!

I am so excited to share with you what has driven me to create MagModz! The past three years of our life has been an amazing journey.

From the beginning, we knew the MagModz concept had great potential, but moving from a dream to a working model was a challenging process. 

There have been challenges and set-backs, as there will be with any new endeavor, but its been an awesome journey for us. 

This is our inaugural Kickstarter project, and we look forward to building an enthusiastic supporter/fan base.   

With you, our backers, we will be able to make a difference in the very competitive toy car industry where established corporate giants reign.  Although it's nice to be a Goliath, sometimes it's good to be a David. 

For a small-town guy like me, it's hard to imagine that we're this close to having manufactured, packaged toys.  Come to think of it, it's hard to believe that the first test samples you see in the images below even exist.  It seems like only yesterday that I was mentally trying to decide how to physically create the concepts.

Allow me to introduce you to the first edition of MagModz toy cars.

The first of MagModz original cars, the Doozi 'N Back, takes design cues from the early days of hot rods.  From the larger wheels dominating the back end, to the racing narrows gracing the front, the nature of this toy allows you to shorten or even lengthen the wheelbase in just a snap, creating new combinations and attractive variations to each model.

MagModz cars are similar in size to a 1/64 scale toy car.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The second original MagModz model, the Haul 'N ItUp, is as American as apple pie. It is a stocky truck, hearkening back to the 50's and 60's, with slab sides and the ever-useful pickup bed.  In many ways, the Haul 'N ItUp is the epitome of utility, mixed with individual style, and is a truck that hauls as good as it looks.

MagModz cars are designed with no visible magnets. Magnets are encapsulated in each piece.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Snub 'N Wagon, the third MagModz original, is an exercise in design. This is a combination of some of the best decades in automotive design, including part delivery van, part bus, and part rat rod.  The Snub 'N Wagon is a weekend cruiser or trailer queen for some, and a daily driver for others.  How will you cruise in your Snub 'N Wagon?

With only two MagModz cars you have over 30 combinations.

With only three MagModz cars you have over 240 combinations.

MagModz cars, whether you have one car or ten cars, you are only limited by your imagination!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Trick 'N Trade accessory package is a must have for any serious MagModz driver.  It includes a limo section to transform any MagModz into a limousine.  Just add the extended cab for some leg room.  You can even add some extra horse power with the cool engine section.

Every time I see this picture I think there has to be a joke about two MagModz pieces on the the beach . . . ok, I got one . . .  

Do you know what one MagModz piece said to another?  "I find you attractive."  It's a magnet joke . . . get it?  (By the way, I am a toy maker, not a comedian!) - Mr. MagModz

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MagModz cars are designed for optimum playability.  Their lightweight but durable plastic design allows you to achieve lengths never before possible with toy cars.

MagModz cars are great educational toys and are a fun way to learn colors and color coordination.  Magnetism, counting, and creating different measurable lengths are just a few of the educational aspects. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Stretch Goal = Kickstarter Green

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

- Manufacturing
I am using KDK Consumer Solutions, www.kdkcs.com, for manufacturing. They have been doing business since 1991 and are very experienced and professional in what they produce. With their experience and effectiveness it should limit the amount of unknown factors that I will face.

- Product Placement
I have agreements with Enchanted Moments, Rep. Force One, Toyology, Rocket Rep. McManemin, and JC Sales, which are toy sales representatives that will place MagModz in gift and toy stores across America.

- Product Recognition
As a small company, product recognition is the largest hurdle to overcome without having a licensed product from well-known large corporations.

Here are three things that I believe makes a product successful: a unique product, a reliable process, and people to believe.

Over the last three years I have had the opportunity to develop what I believe is a very unique product. During this time I have developed working prototypes and proven this concept. The most important aspect of making MagModz a success is great people like you who are willing to support this project and share this new invention and fun toy with your network of family and friends.

Thank you for being a part of my first Kickstarter campaign. I look forward to building an enthusiastic supporter/fan base . . . with you being a part of it!

Building dreams . . . one child at a time!

Thank You,

John Wesley Davolt
(Mr. MagModz)
