About this project

Hello Kickstarter! Thanks for checking out Squigaloo. With your help, we would like to launch an online, collaborative storytelling website for kids and families.

Squigaloo wants you to create your own stories and characters. We want you to create them with your friends and create them with your kids. We want you to share them. Online is great, but we really want you to share them in beautifully printed and bound storybooks.

So far we have built a character and scene editor. Authors can create unique characters by mashing together parts from the growing character library. They can upload any image or drawing and can place, size, and rotate multiple characters within the image to create relationships. Finally, they can add text to create and save a completed scene.

With our Kickstarter project we would build a collaborative story editor to share these scenes and characters with each other to create stories. Every story can be unique or one story can be retold in many ways by other authors.

Now, the best part. Not only can characters and stories be shared online, but also with completion of our new Story Editor you can get fully printed character card decks and elegantly bound storybooks — mailed to you.

Collectible character card decks

Full-color printed and bound storybooks.

Pledge big and get both the character cards and the storybook.

Why Kickstarter? Why Stories?

Collaborative storytelling meets collaborative fundraising! Kickstarter is the perfect fit for a project like Squigaloo. The 15K raised will enable us to connect the final pieces of the storytelling process into a full-fledged Story Editor.

Kickstarter pledges get a rare opportunity. Not only will you help us build something, you will also have a hand in shaping Squigaloo with unique content and stories to make it better.

As the founders of Squigaloo, Josh and I set out to create a site kids and parents would find worthy of their time.  Our goal was to connect kids creativity and imagination to the art and tradition of storytelling.

Thanks for taking time to check out our Kickstarter. For more about our project and us go to squigaloo.com.

Best,
Andy & Josh
