Have a question?
Hi all I'm the Creative Director and Owner of GAMAGO.
Last year, following the success of our Bunnyside Up Egg Mold, our designers started development of both our Kitty Egg Mold and Puppy Egg Mold. Both have been on market and in stores for months now. They're also available direct from our web site.
I think if you all scratch a little harder at who's really running this project, you'll find that it's not one that you'll want to continue to support. Instead, reward the companies like GAMAGO and Fred that actually put the time, energy, and money into designing and manufacturing products.
PS, hey Lauren! Was wondering if y'all were gonna pop up on this thread.
Hi @Tim Liu and all,
I am the designer for the cat egg mold for Fred & Friends. This project is a blatant rip off of our design. Backers, please consider researching future projects before you back them. There is no need to wait for a cat egg mold, as we are already selling them.
@Angela Sum - Yes! Once this campaign concludes, I am definitely looking into designing different egg molds. Woof! ;) Thank you so much for the support! I really appreciate it.
Oh this is so fun I had to pledge! I'm crazy about eggs, just not about cats.. maybe you can do a dog one in the future? :)
I totally agree with Andrade - I'm sure 100% of all the 2500 backers can agree that you're being a total stalker creep bro. She doesn't need to tell you her life story. If you don't actually want a cat mold just cancel your pledge.
@Creator- can you please answer my last question? Thank you
@Tim Liu - Thank you for the message and looking out for the project. Unfortunately, we can not patent the design of the egg mold according to it's shape. I'm not surprised there are other companies inspired to make breakfast more fun. As long as it puts a smile on people's faces, I'm all for it. :) Thank you for the support Tim! I really appreciate it.
You might want to look into this? Fred and Friends has started selling a near identical cat-shaped egg mold http://www.fredandfriends.com/new-for-fall-2015/funny-side-up/5161077.html#start=5
Not sure if you've had your design patented...
@Creator- thank you for your response.
I want to back this campaign and give my support, but also want an honest campaign. Thank you for your honesty and we can all agree now that
you are no longer associated with Bomber&Company nor the people From the company that I mentioned before; Vincent Ng, Steven Ng, Andrew Nguyen?
@Nick - You asked for pictures of the design process as one of our first backers and I provided an entire update on with extra renderings, hundreds of prototypes, pictures of designs, and even elaborated on how the cat mold was created and its origins.
As for my relations with Bomber & Company, I was an intern at their company handling instagram posts for 2 weeks. I was never a hired employee nor did I work with them personally.
@Andrade- just like the Skarp campaign (which you backed) getting suspended today for violating one of Kickstarter's rules, this campaign has also violated a Kickstarter rule. They should not be treated any different.
@Creator- a simple answer could clear this all up.
@Nick Nick Cancilla What is it to you ?, You seriously need to get a hobby or maybe get yourself checked. If you have moral problems then go pester somewhere else. As for me and the 2500+ backers ...we can't wait for our cat moulds to make yummy cat shaped pancakes !
To be honest, I'm not quite sure what they are trying to do. The Egg Addiction project has gotten a lot of press in the past few weeks and I'm not surprised that someone has done this especially with all the trolling comments the few weeks prior to this. Hopefully the proper action will be taken soon. Thanks for looking out for the project and I'm working on getting production in a bit earlier. ;)
@Creator- can you please explain why you lied about not being affiliated with the Bomber Co.?
"Projects must be honest and clearly presented."
"Our community is built on trust and communication. Projects can’t mislead people or misrepresent facts..."
Please explain why you broke this rule?
I don't get that other project, They use the same video, some of the pictures are the same. However the Grey mold is slightly different, it has a little bit different sides, and the handle for lifting it up is different. I mean if they actually had a different design, why copy this projects images and video? Just make another one and launch that and if people like that design better then it is a win. It almost feels as if the grey images are renders. Could it be that it is the same people or person who were trolling in the comments here. Had a look at the other projects this person made, and one did not succeed in funding (With 0 people pledging), and the other was canceled. I have also reported them last week, but I wonder why KS takes so long to remove this type of accounts when they are clearly scammers.
Thank you for taking the time to report to Kickstarter. I'm so glad to be apart of such a supportive community. I really appreciate it. YOU ROCK!
Thank you so much for looking out for Egg Addiction campaign. Hopefully, Kickstarter takes the proper action soon. Thank you for being such an awesome backer! Hope you enjoy your weekend. :)
I guess it came out wrong, I meant is her name really Lynette. If you look at the comments I wrote on the other page you will see that I do believe this is the real original, I did even message you prior to this previous comment here and reported the other to kickstarter. How can people think they can get away with that - and so close to yours ?!!?
If you take a look at the video on Eggy Side Up Eggs it is branded "Egg Addiction." Also, most of the pictures are from my campaign. I hope this clears up any misunderstandings. Thank you so much for the support!
Oh, I see others have already noticed what I did. " Eggy Side Up Eggs - Cat Fried Egg Mold " by Lynette Greenfield of Brisbane, AU says she has the patents for this and another egg mold. Even the name is pretty close, hmmmm, who is the scam artist ????
I actually reported it just after I posted the link here.
@Eia A @Didodido @KER III
Thank you so much for looking out for my campaign. I really appreciate it and it means a lot. I’m glad we can build this project together and see it from start to finish. I’ve already notified Kickstarter regarding this matter. It will be much appreciated it, if you can help report that project to Kickstarter as well. Thank you for the support and good looking out. :)
They even use the same video as yours for their campaign and in their comments they claim that they have the patent for this design....
Agree with Eia, please let us know if this creator is somekinda related with you or not, I m gonna report that project if it is copy cat :/ not only the design but they copied ur photo and description,saved screenshot in case if they change it in future
Looks like someone else copied your material https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/645822976/eggy-side-up-eggs-cat-fried-egg-mold… they even put your video up...
If you haven't done so already, please fill out the survey I posted through the latest update. I want to ship cat egg mold out to everyone before February. Therefore, I am getting a tally of the shipping cost as well as what countries to ship to. In order to help this process, it would be great if you can answer this quick survey. It only takes 30 secs!

@Lili Yip @Steve Sebban
Thank you so much for the support! I can't wait to get cat egg mold out to everyone. You rock! :)
After seeing the bonus you offer to Backclub members (http://bit.ly/BackerClubMember), I can't wait to see what else you have in store for us.
This is such a cute idea! Can't wait to get mines and start cooking with it (:
@John Owen @Hyowon
You are very welcome. :) Thank you so much for your continuous support! It really means a lot.
Indeed, thank you so much for considering the extra pledge levels. Very much appreciated!
Thank you for adding the extra levels!!!!
This comment has been removed by Kickstarter.
Great question. At the end of the campaign, I will be sending out a Backerkit survey where you include your shipping address and additional items or add ons. From there, you can add on additional 4 cat egg molds. Hope this helps! Feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions. Thank you so much for the support.
Can you add any other levels like double quad regular size molds? We want to give them away as gifts and 8 seems about right!! Thanks!!
@Charles @Joanna @Andrade
Thank you so much for all the support. You guys are totally awesome and I can't wait to take this project to the next level!
Why don't you get a life??? You seriously need one .
I’ve been keeping a close eye at your project and I love how viral its gotten. It’s a great idea and I fully support any individual trying to pursue their dreams. I’m also very sorry about the specific individual sexually harassing you and I’m glad those comments have been deleted as they were incredibly inappropriate, antifeminist, sexist, and demeaning. I think we all know who that specific backer is. I’ve pledged for a few more cat molds just to show some support. I’m sure they will make great gifts as they will put a smile on anyone’s face. Keep doing what you’re doing girl!
I like that idea - Solidarity. I just upped my pledge too. Poor girl, she really doesn't have to be harassed so badly by whoever is spamming her page.
I'm excited for my cat egg mold and got one for the mother too. :)
Anyways, congratulations on killing it at the campaign Cindy. Take a break this weekend if you can. You deserve it!
@Saltybrains it started with a false statement by the creator "...we are not in any way affiliated with BOMBER."
I feel bad for everyone that is expecting a quality product from these kids. If you look at all their campaigns "Halo Belt", "Dash Wallet", "Bomber Barrel Bag", etc. they all have the same issue...POOR QUALITY! Look at the comment section of those campaigns.
@Cindy P Ho- why did you lie and say you were not affiliated with Bomber?
Thank you so much for the kind words. I really appreciated it! :)
whats with all the deleted comments and negativity ? this is awesome and she's done REALLY well! congrats btw! :)
@Maice @John @Rainbyte @Sally @Aaron - Thank you guys so much for the kind words. I'm really excited to help bring this product to life. Hopefully it'll brighten everyones mornings! :)
Thanks for supporting on this creator, and you guys are awesome! :)
I raised my pledge to the next level as a sign of support for this project - this is a fun project to be part of.
I do not understand why people are having an issue about this.
It isn't a 100% original idea, but so few things is these days.
What I'm buying here, is quality. I'm supporting her hours and hours of research, of her hunt to find the perfect mold.
I've tried many of these molds over the years, cats, frogs, owls, you name it and it's out there. You know what they all have in common? They're disappointing. Cheap. and quite often faulty. At one point I got one that MELTED on the pan. Now THAT was pure chaos.
You see a lot of other things on kickstarter just like this: A common enough idea, where they think they can find an improvement, they can sell it in a different format, reach a different audience and launch a buisness.
And if this goes successfully, maybe she WILL launch a buisness? Imagine the cuteness that may invade our kitchens with her behind the wheels.. I can imagine it already.
I'm sorry for the creator for the harasment she must endure, but I do hope she WILL endure it. Because I'd love to see more of her.
I'm almost annoyed that the kickstarter lasts for 50 days, because that means I need wait just that much longer before they get put into production.
I think we can also see clearly that the silicone cat molds are on the table she used in the entire video... she is even in a picture with the wood table on the floor. The breakfast is also on that same table. All these fake posts are just stupid. The real winner is Cindy.
Aaron Dicky got good points, and he proved it to us. Then give her break time, would you guys?
That's odd. I'm not sure if you are one of the Ali Baba team, whoever against the creator.
Look, please stop making these fake accounts and posting these fake spam post. They are all extremely inappropriate. Give it a rest.
@Robert CNN: The Ali Baba listing does not prove this is a scam. The Ali Baba images all have a giant text watermark across the image. This would be extremely difficult to remove without some distortion to the image itself. Furthermore, it's the Ali Baba images that show signs of tampering. This is especially visible on the photo of the finished egg in the frying pan where you can see a cloned section of the wood grain directly over the area the Egg Addiction watermark appears on the KS photos. Additionally, all of the Ali Baba images are marked as being taken on 9.21.2015 which is 6 days after the same photos appeared on the Egg Addiction Facebook page. While Egg Addiction could backdate the post this seems unlikely in light of the watermarks on the Ali Baba images.
