Baby Potato Plushie

$8,208

Hello there!

My name is Kira :) I'm an independent artist and illustrator. 

Baby Potato and I are so happy about every visitor, who is interested in our Kickstarter campaign. With your help, we want to turn Baby Potato into a Plushie and spread the cuteness of Baby Potato all over the world! ^-^ 

About Baby Potato

May I introduce you to the cutest little potato on Earth? His name is Baby Potato! And he is... like his name might suggest... a little Baby Potato! :D 

My husband and I came up with the idea for Baby Potato about a year ago and he rapidly became one of our little favorites! It's just so much fun to tell little stories about Baby Potato on my Instagram and YouTube channel. 

This is the very first sketch of Baby Potato! My husband drew this little doodle of Baby Potato at last year's Anime Expo. It made me giggle out loud and we immediately fell in love with this character. :D

Two years ago I held a successful Kickstarter campaign to turn my little ghost character Spooky McCute into a plushie. Since then, Spooky brought so much joy to his fans and to me. I thought he might need a little friend ;) that's why we want to turn Baby Potato into a plushie!  

Happy little friends, Baby Potato and Spooky McCute!

Rewards:

Baby Potato Plushie!

The star of this campaign! Smol and cute - that's our Baby Potato! He is about 4 1/2" tall (sitting), that's 11cm. ;) He fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, so you can bring him along with you, wherever you go. His body and diapers are made of super soft minky velboa fabric. His arms and legs are little strings that you can move around and play with (no wires inside ;)). So he's soft and huggable! ^-^

We offer different reward tiers that enable you to adopt one, two, three or four Baby Potato Plushies

We also offer 'Early Potato Specials' for backers who adopt one or two Baby Potatoes early in the campaign. Limited availability! 

And there are discounts on pledges for adopting three or four potatoes! ;)

Items that may be available on shopkirakira.com later will cost a little more than during this campaign (that includes the Plushie, too!).

Risks and challenges

This is my second Kickstarter campaign. The fulfillment of my first Kickstarter campaign went smoothly and as planned. :)

I also run an online shop called shopkirakira.com where I've been selling my art and merchandise for several years now. So I'm experienced in bringing cute art and products to happy customers all over the world. ^-^

The prototype for the plushie is finished and I worked with this manufacturer for my Spooky plushies before. :) If the Kickstarter reaches its funding goal, we will start turning Baby Potato Plushies into reality. Yayy!!!

The estimated shipping for the plushies is scheduled for September 2019. That includes some buffer - just in case! ;)

I will keep you updated on everything :) If you should ever have a question, feel free to ask me, I'm here to help! I will make sure to update the FAQs, so everything is easy to understand.
