We Are Speechless - Important Update (Please Read)

362 likes

No, seriously, we are speechless! The last 72 hours have been such a blur, and for that we want to thank our Fidget Family. 

Thank you for sharing Fidget Cube.

Thank you for the kind comments.

Thank you for the inspiring stories.

Thank you for your patience as we try to catch up on messages.

AND...

Thank you for believing in us and Fidget Cube. 

All of this said, we realize that you all are needing more communication from us. This update is going to focus on answering the top questions we are receiving in messages and comments, so we can hopefully start to catch up. We truly appreciate the work of the community. The discussions to answer each other's questions have been a MASSIVE help. Kickstarter is new to a large portion of our backers, so show some love and welcome them! ;). 

We wanted to address some of the top concerns and questions that we have been asked over the last week. Hopefully this helps...

There's two of you - how the heck are you going to make and send out so many Fidget Cubes?

We have been dedicating much of our time over the last few days to building out our team in manufacturing, fulfillment, and communication. These individuals and teams will be instrumental in making Fidget Cube a reality on this large of a scale. There are many of you that haven't received messages back from us. At this point, we are receiving messages faster than we can respond to them. As our team expands, our hope is to catch up!

Is Fidget Cube's design finalized?

We are loving the suggestions we are reading in the comments about how you'd like to see certain changes in the design. The mini think tank that's starting to form is phenomenal! At this point, we have decided to stay with the overall design of what you see on our campaign page. 

But I really want my Fidget Cube to be attached to a keychain.

We put a lot of time into making sure the design of Fidget Cube was something we were proud of, which might be why we are hesitant to put a hole in the side for attaching a keyring. That said, we are continuing to work on a solution for attaching a keyring that doesn't include putting a hole in Fidget Cube. Once we have this ironed out it will most likely be offered as a stretch goal.

I know this has grown to a level that you weren't expecting, will I still be getting my Fidget Cube in December?

This is the point that keeps us up at night. Fidget Cube is a finalized product that already has the kinks worked out, so we never expected to have issues with meeting this delivery date. However, at the time of writing this, we have about 60,000 backers - a thought that deeply moves us and motivates us to not let you down. We are working tirelessly on getting some concrete answers. What we can tell you is that we will be transparent about everything, especially the ship date. Please don't perceive silence on any one issue as unwillingness to communicate (we're working overtime on such issues so that we can provide solid answers, not just best guesses).

I haven't given my shipping address yet.

Not to worry! Kickstarter doesn't ask for shipping details when you back our project, because there's a chance that certain backers will have different addresses by the time we are ready to ship. We'll ask for your shipping details when we send out our backer survey, which will be emailed to you after the project ends and shortly before we ship.

Will I get to choose which color(s) I get?

Of course! You'll be able to choose from our list of available color schemes (backers who have pledged for multiple Fidget Cubes will be able to choose each Fidget Cube's color scheme individually). Similarly to getting your shipping information, we'll ask for your color choice(s) when we send out our backer survey, which will be emailed to you after the project ends and shortly before we ship.

If your question was not answered here, please check the FAQ section at the bottom of the main project page.

 

 

Until next time,

Team Antsy Labs (Matthew and Mark)

Fidget Family,

$1,000,000.

Wow.

We just wanted to post a brief update to highlight this momentous milestone.

This could not have happened without this incredible community, so thank you.

We are amazed. Shocked. Beyond excited. Your support continues to inspire us and push us to make Fidget Cube even better.

Until next time,

Team Antsy Labs (Matthew and Mark)

P.S. We are being totally inundated with thousands of comments, messages, and emails each day, and we are doing our very best to answer as many as possible. If you have any questions, be sure to check out our FAQ on the main project page. Also, a special shout-out to Nate, Mike Kabala, and others in the community who have been helping us answer questions in the comments section! It’s much appreciated.

Announcing Our Second Stretch Goal!

72 likes

Fidget Family,

PHEW! You all are just flooring us, thank you so much for your continued sharing - it's what is making this project! We are one week into this campaign and are truly excited with how this community is growing. We know you're probably anxious to hear the next stretch goal. This is a two part stretch goal that will be achieved at $500,000

Part 1

We have received many requests regarding a Kickstarter specific Fidget Cube, a way to commemorate that this product was born here, on Kickstarter. Well, we will be fulfilling this request as a thank you for your support and the amazing community you're building!

Show everyone that YOU made Fidget Cube a reality
Show everyone that YOU made Fidget Cube a reality

 

Part 2

We have also received many requests for stickers. We have 2 designs that we are considering, but we want the community to make the decision on which one we should use. At this point, we can say that each pledge will receive at least (1) sticker in their shipment. The sticker will be about 2 x 2 inches. More to come as we figure out pricing! Please see the two options below and follow the link to cast your vote - please vote only once ;).

Which one will prevail? It's up to you. Vote now!
Which one will prevail? It's up to you. Vote now!

By the way, we haven't forgotten some of the bigger requests that are being made... we are working on solutions every day, so stay tuned.

Before you go... 

We have received a few messages lately asking how one can specifically make a difference with getting the word out. You can do it whichever way you choose, but here are a few quick options (just click the button - it'll redirect you to the platform) that would make a huge impact:

1. If you're a reddit user...

 

 

2. If you tweet...

 

 

3. If your Facebook friends could use Fidget Cube... 

 

Without further ado, your ballot: CLICK HERE TO VOTE

Stretch Goal #1 Reached!!!

33 likes

Fidget Family,

Another amazing milestone reached... Wow, thank you so much! I know we sound like a stuck record but you guys are doing the heavy lifting! We are seeing so many uplifting (and sometimes hilarious) things you are saying on social platforms... keep them coming - we love reading what you have to say!

Before we go further

We will be announcing the next stretch goal once we hit $150,000. We don't want to spoil surprises but we have some upcoming stretch goals that will be fulfilling some of the wishes made in the comments. All of that said, we plan to ramp up to those stretch goals as they will add additional cost on our end.

 

Fidget Cube Coloring Book

As promised, this update is to explain what the rules are to submit your custom color scheme. Once everyone has had a chance to submit theirs, we will share them with the community for voting. It's pretty straightforward, but please read these rules carefully so that your awesome design is eligible for submission!

Boring Instructions 

1. Download the Fidget Cube Coloring Book template here.

2. Use a program like Photoshop, Paint, or any other app that allows you to paint or color.

3. Choose a color for the body of the cube. This needs to be the same color on all sides. You can then choose whatever colors you want for each component. 

       *Please make sure the worry stone is the same color as the cube

    ** Please choose a silver or black for the ball. (Silver color code: #c5c3c2 /  Black color code: #000000)

4. Once you have completed the form, please upload it in JPG, PNG, or PDF format to this link.

All submissions are due by October 8

Again... thank you for all the sharing you are doing on social media. Keep it up and we will be able to really deliver some awesome stretch goals!

You've pushed us up one more position to most popular Kickstarter project!

Stretch Goal #1

Fidgeteers!

You all have put on your game faces and shown up for the fidgeting community... and for that, we thank you! In our update last night we discussed how we would be working on ways to thank you for all the sharing you've done for Fidget Cube. We thought we would start out with a fun and collaborative stretch goal. We are getting tons of messages and comments asking for specific color options. We have selected colors already, but we thought it would be great for the community to design a custom color scheme.

So...

When we reach $100,000 in funding we will be uploading a template for you to color as you please. You will be able to submit your own design of your dream Fidget Cube to the community for voting. The design that gets the most votes wins, and we will add that color scheme to the official final Fidget Cube options. More to come on the details of how you will submit, as well as the template you will use. We are excited to see what you will come up with, so start brainstorming!

Also...

Those of you who are commenting and messaging us regarding other things we should include with Fidget Cube... keep them coming! We are working on requests - maybe you will even see one or two of them show up as a stretch goal soon! :)

We wanted to make an accurate visual representation of just how big the Fidget Family already is as of this evening. Anyone up for the challenge of counting this? ;)
