Update #31

Shipping Progress

7 comments

Many of you have received your Blocklets, or at least notification of imminent shipment. We've shipped about 40% of the orders at this point.  This may not sound impressive, but we shipped the hardest 40%. The pace should accelerate significantly as we move from shipping the deluxe kits to the expanded and basic kits. We are on track to be all shipped out by the third week in March.

So for the remaining 60%. We'll send you an email asking to verify your address a few days before we ship your kit. Once your kit ships, you'll get an email with tracking information.

For those of you who have already received your kits, please let us know what you think!

Yours in Blocklets,

Gabe & Mark

Update #28

Business as usual

Just a quick update to let you know how things are going. Production is proceeding nicely, we are shipping kits out twice weekly.

Thanks for all the positive feedback, we are glad you are enjoying your kits. We would also like to acknowldge that there was a small number of kits that got by quality control. We have since remedied this quality control issue. If you're one of the few that got a kit with pieces that did not come out cleanly please let us know.

At your service,

Mark & Gabe
