What is it?

Cribble is a kit of building pieces to create your own mini house. A blank canvas for your craftyness. Plan and build the foundation, wallpaper the walls, place the floors and put together some furniture according to plan, or your very own way. This is an inclusive project and it’s meant to integrate with other toys, crafts and stuff you find around the house. 
 

Why is it?  

Interesting and fun STEM-areas such as engineering and architecture are overrun with boys. There are many ways to interpret it, but we think an important reason lays in how girls are encouraged and enabled to develop some skills, but not others. Men and women differ on a statistical level is spatial rotation (basically the ability to rotate an object inside your head). A skill that is built by practicing doing this outside your head, for example by playing with Lego. Now some toys do target girls in this area, but it seems the girl versions are always simpler, and less spatially challenging than the boy alternative!   

We're convinced the brain is plastic (which basically mean, you can learn stuff). So we think that if we increase the opportunity for girls to delve into building and technology they won't just have a much more fun playtime but also even out one of the biggest mediators for the wage gap between men and women.  

Cribble is dipping into the traditional girl play area and giving opportunity for all genders to play around with technology, room and space without overwhelming them with signals that this are meant for boys.  

We have two goals:  

1. Create a platform where girls too can feel welcome to play their way into all those fun skills that are still sadly confined to “boy games”.  

2. Create a kick-ass fun toy that makes your fingers tickle with "pyssellust" (Swedish word describing the crave for fiddling, crafting and making stuff with your hands).  

Where is it going?  

This campaign is aimed at enabling us to launch Cribble on a larger scale, and to make Cribble accessible to children all over the world, the budget is based on upstart costs such as manufacturing tools and testing. In the future we wish to expand and connect with lots of other projects and ideas. Amongst many things we want to make solar panel-driven fans, wool insulation, home-grown-lawn-grass and custom cut windows. Most of all we want to explore all kinds of ideas together with you and your kids. Get in touch with us if you have an idea to share!

The exclusive all-inclusive delivered within two weeks-set  

This is a special put together of the base kit and all the three extras. We’ve only got 100 of them and they are most dear to us. This is our pre-launch, which we will send out just when this Kickstarter finishes and we will use the feedback from you to improve the final product even more.

Another perk is that the packaging will be extra fancy, contain one of only 100 existing signed Cribble cards, and like a fancy art piece the sets will be numbered. Contains all of the parts mentioned above!   

Continuously developing  

Together with you. We have developed this product together with kids, and look forward to continue doing so. That’s why we give you this small exclusive pre-launch of only 100 sets, so we can interact with and learn from our first customers, in order to further develop the product before we go full-scale.

Materials and safety   

The wood is birch plywood, water cut for minimal environmental impact (although our prototype is laser cut). We only use non-toxic and biocompatible plastics. Hit us up at hello@cribble.se if you’ve got any additional questions about this!

Disclaimer 

The pictures are featuring our prototypes, which are laser cut. The final product will be water cut, and therefore not have the burnt edges. The plastic pieces may look a little different as well, since the prototype ones are 3d-printed. Packaging and other design features may also change along the way, depending on what input we get from our first customers. Finally, we will not send you any of the background toys from the product pictures ;)

Prices

This kickstarter is aimed at sharing Cribble with as many as possible, just covering our production costs. The retail price is not set yet, but will probably be significantly higher. So don't miss out!

Risks and challenges

This is the first time we as a team are launching a physical product. To compensate for this we’re backed up with some other experienced folks to make sure everything runs smoothly.
For the production we work with a Swedish watercutter called SVAB, and they’ve been in the business for 18 years. Small and familiar yet experienced and trustworthy. For business strategy, IP, legal and marketing we got Tillväxtbolaget by our side; a local sales and marketing firm with plenty of start-up experience. Last but not least we’re part of one of Swedens most robust incubators: STING, guiding and aiding our every step.

To sum it up there are plenty of challenges. But with this dream team, firm and constant customer contact and input, and a lot of aspiration and organisation, we will make this dream happen.
