      Hi all, I just presented my (now old enough) kids with the Atoms set for xmas - only to learn that the company has folded and their (essential) App has been pulled from the App Store :-/ Is anyone wiser than I willing to share the App file (.ipa) so less smart people like me can try to get it to work? Thanks in advance & happy holidays :)

      What happen with my money

    3. Creator André Kishimoto on July 29, 2014

      Hmm so Atoms is dead? I did not receive any (my pledge is "Magic Wand Set") and never got a response from them either.

    4. Creator Jim Boyer on July 29, 2014

      Sorry to see them go - our kids really enjoy them. I better backup the IOS app just incase it disappears from the app store.

    5. Creator Dave Chandler on July 29, 2014

      Just received an email... the gist: Atoms is dead. :( They are going to try to find a large distribution partner to fund a company reboot but... well... you know how that goes.

    6. Creator Wa Tten on April 1, 2014

      havent receive any :(

    7. Creator Jonathan Gabriel on March 8, 2014

      They sent an email today regarding the status of our undelivered upgrades. Long story short, they need another round of investments before they can deliver the missing items.

      They list these reasons why they're in a tight financial position why they can't deliver on their promises. Long and winded. They new money just to fulfill their backlogs, mainly our undelivered pledges.

      For me, they really have no one to blame but themselves. Had they stuck to their original goals of delivering the basic product and not go off in a thousand different directions at the same time (create this stretch goal, hold that workshop, hire many staffs, etc. etc.) they could kept their promises in time and on budget.

    8. Creator Charles Boyung on March 7, 2014

      Their facebook update today says they will have an update for us by the end of the week. I'll believe it when I see it...

    9. Creator Brennon Church on March 5, 2014

      So they aren't responding to emails or messages anymore. The one number I've found goes directly to voicemail. At this point I'm going to assume that those of us who paid extra are going to end up with nothing to show for it.

    10. Creator mhu on February 24, 2014

      I can just repeat Brennon's comment: What's the status on the extras? I've been told twice now that you expect something by a specified time. Twice now that time has come and gone. Once again, we spent a lot of money to help fund you. Where are our extra components?

    11. Creator Sumit Pandey on February 18, 2014

      +1 Brett, I do not see the extras I ordered in the final order that was shipped. Any updates on when those are going to be sent out?

    12. Creator Brett on February 15, 2014

      This has been a bit disappointing. Tried to contact through multiple channels to no avail. I would really like to receive my extras I ordered at the start. It's more disappointing that you are selling to the general public before completing the kickstarter orders and the fact you are not responding to requests messages or emails.

    13. Creator Anton Butov on February 6, 2014

      Finally they responded and I've got my package. Atoms are really good. Guys, a little patience and you'll get yours

    14. Creator Jose Chenu on February 3, 2014

      There is anybody there?
      Where is my reward or a tracking number for it?
      Any news or response?

    15. Creator Brennon Church on January 31, 2014

      What's the status on the extras? I've been told twice now that you expect something by a specified time. Twice now that time has come and gone. Once again, we spent a lot of money to help fund you. Where are our extra components?

    16. Creator Anton Butov on January 29, 2014

      It looks as they're gone. No package and no response....

    17. Creator Charles Boyung on January 24, 2014

      Once again - what is the status on the extras that people have ordered?

    18. Creator Jay Mac on January 23, 2014

      Still disappointed to have missed out on this one. Hopefully they'll be available soon at a reasonable price.

    19. Creator Nicolas Ricquemaque on January 18, 2014

      I have received mine (in France) just today, to give you guys hope ;-) The waiting was worth it. We are having a lot of fun with the kids playing it ! As everybody else (it seems) we haven't received the extra atoms we ordered, though. Maybe a later shipping ? Some communication would help here :-)

    20. Creator Brett on January 14, 2014

      Are you going to be sending out the exras I/we have ordered along with my/our set orders.
      I have my sets, but really want all those extras I added on the help you reach your goal.

    21. Creator Brennon Church on January 13, 2014

      @ATOMS, you need to focus more effort on fulfilling the orders from your kickstarters. So far I've only received part of what I ordered, and from the looks of it others have received nothing at all. This is not a good way to engender good will or repeat customers.

    22. Creator Marc Rubiano on January 12, 2014

      Hi Daren
      Your not alone. I have not received anything either. I you like to email you info and I can include this with the complaint that I plan to file with the BBB at the end of the week.

      Regard
      Marc ( m1safe-kickstarter@yahoo.com )

    23. Creator DarenTay on January 11, 2014

      hi all, just wondering. i was looking through the updates and #44 indicated we should have gotten it by end december.

      I am based in Asia, has anyone not gotten theirs yet, or am I alone on this? I have heard nothing at all with regards to shipping so far

    24. Creator Marc Rubiano on January 9, 2014

      I was wondering if anybody else is having the same problem I having with the Seamless Toy Company. I read that they have shipped the product, but I have not received anything. I have sent numerous emails with no response. I even called the company and spoke with the office manager. She told me that she had no access to the status and that someone would get back to me within a day. It’s been almost two weeks and 3 or 4 phone calls to the company, but still no response. I plan to file a complaint with the BBB next week.

      If anyone else is having the same problem, it might be a good idea to file the complaint as a group.

      Regard
      Marc ( m1safe-kickstarter@yahoo.com )

    25. Creator DarenTay on January 9, 2014

      its been so long I have forgotten about what i pledge even. Is it coming?

    26. Creator Jose Chenu on January 6, 2014

      Can you send me a tracking number? I have no notice about my reward!

    27. Creator Jonathan Gabriel on December 26, 2013

      Just got mine today. Obviously you didn't even bother to communicate with us international backers before sending off the items. I had to pay FedEx $75 just to clear the package, which could have been avoided had you contacted us beforehand to confirm the best way to have them shipped without having to pay exorbitant fees. Imagine paying for import tax which has a higher value than the package that arrived.

      Second, my total pledge was upgraded twice for a total of $138 to include both the Magic Wand set and Prankster set to my initial pledge for the Monster Construction set. The package only had the Monster set, where's the other two? Long time to wait for these items, but now am I now expected to pay again for the import tax of the missing two sets if you decide to send them to me later on? I emailed you twice about the upgrade to my pledge, to which you've replied, so I was confident that the sets I pledged for was clear. Obviously this is not the case.

      How disappointed you would be if you were in my shoes?

    28. Creator spongefile on December 24, 2013

      Kid just opened Bunsen set to find everything except the atom blocks themselves. :/ Not a disaster, but I'm assuming you'll send those?

    29. Creator Allan Davis on December 19, 2013

      When is the Add on parts shipping please. Is there a from we need to fill out.
      The first shipment is great but can i get the rest please ... in time for Christmas ???

    30. Creator David Hellam on December 18, 2013

      First installment of mine (monster) has arrived in the UK. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the kit (wand) too. Thanks.

    31. Creator Andrew Walsh on December 17, 2013

      Received mine today in the UK! Now have a week until Christmas to decide whether to keep it myself or give to the children ...
      Looks good, well done ATOMS :-)

    32. Creator Robert Gusek on December 14, 2013

      Just got mine today and WOW is all I can say, we'll not really but you've done an amazing job. I'm showing it to all my friends who have kids. I'm definitely hanging on to mine, it is a blast to play with!!!

    33. Creator Ken Talbert on December 14, 2013

      High quality and Great my stuff got here today and I love it!

    34. Creator wakitarb on December 14, 2013

      Hi, getting nervous, as of today, I have not received anything. How can I get a tracking number?

    35. Creator Gabrielle Fuqua on December 13, 2013

      My ATOMS came today and the kids (6,6, & 3) are thrilled! Great job to the Seamless Toy company for bringing something to life that decodes the mystery of technology. It's is a real gift to the newest generation. Kudos!

    36. Creator Xavier Priour on December 11, 2013

      Hi, anybody received any mail or form to specify which additional kits or atoms they pledged for? I did not, and getting worried. As an international backer, delivery errors as mentioned below will be expensive to fix...

    37. Creator Brian Bishop on December 11, 2013

      I have yet to receive anything here in the US either. Have these all been shipped? If so how were they shipped and is there any chance of getting a tracking number.

      Thanks

    38. Creator Mary on December 11, 2013

      Hi I still haven't received mine here in UK can you check your records and let me know chances for a per Christmas delivery?
      Thanks and merry Christmas

    39. Creator Brennon Church on December 10, 2013

      I too had an increased pledge that covered the monster and wand kits as well as a few extra atoms. So far, I've just received the wand kit. I sent a request in and got a response that they were looking into what happened.

    40. Creator Jennifer Reed on December 10, 2013

      Hi! I upped my pledge to $108 in order to receive both the Monster and the Wand kit (and have a email from Michael about that). I received the Monster kit a couple of days ago, but did not receive the Wand kit. Are those still to be shipped? Thank you!

    41. Creator Kevin Barfield on December 10, 2013

      I've received part of my order. I got my Bunson kit and the earthquake atom stretch goal, but I didn't get the additional atoms I had ordered : ( I've filled out the contact form on myatoms.com, I'll let you know when I hear back.

    42. Creator Paul Reeves on December 8, 2013

      Has anyone received their order yet? I was hoping to have this for Christmas for my son but I suspect I'll have to get something else.

    43. Creator Philip Staples on November 24, 2013

      Hi, I remember uping my pledge to receive extra ATOMs, will these be included in the delivery?

    44. Creator Seamless Toy Company, Inc. on November 22, 2013

      @Keith- we have you listed at our Benefactor level!

    45. Creator Keith Collins on November 22, 2013

      I am leaving a comment because I was unable to successfully send an email via your website. I got a notice that you are about to ship Atoms to backers. (Congratulations!)

      However, when I checked your Backer page on your website, I did not see my name under my correct Benefactor level, so I am checking to make sure that my order is all set, and that you have my correct address. Please reply via email. Thanks!

    46. Creator Brian Bishop on November 14, 2013

      I would also be interested in adding a few things to my order if possible.

    47. Creator Seamless Toy Company, Inc. on November 14, 2013

      @Xavier- We will followup with a add-on order form soon!

    48. Creator Xavier Priour on November 14, 2013

      Hi guys, saw (and filled) your new address survey. Will you send another one for all of us with add-ons to choose?

      Thanks!

    49. Creator Steve Handbury on November 9, 2013

      Hi, Do you think your international orders will make Christmas ?

    50. Creator Seamless Toy Company, Inc. on October 28, 2013

      Kevin, Ben and anyone else wondering about a ship date...

      Sorry for the delay in response. We hit a rough patch there were things were uncertain but it now looks like our suppliers are able to get our parts to us soon.
