We've reached 40% at the 30 day mark!
Greetings Team Targimals,
Due to popular demand, we’ve added a special 2 SET Earliest Bird Reward Tier after many people requested more than one set. It’s the same price as 2 Earliest Bird Specials. In retrospect, this makes perfect sense because most families have two or more kids who might want a set.
The reward is limited to only 36 backers (24 of the 36 left). If you'd like to select the TWO SET EARLIEST BIRD special, visit our Kickstarter page and click the "manage your pledge" and it will take you to the select reward page. http://kck.st/12b1QeF
Now that we’ve hit the 30 day mark, we will start sending out updates much more frequently.
To add a little humorous stress to our lives, my mother is the least entrepreneurial (risk-taking) person you’re likely to meet. She was almost in tears on the FIRST day of the launch, thinking our project was a failure! I believe she’s preparing a room at her home in Texas, thinking we will surely lose our house and be moving in! She is a backer, so she’ll probably be reading this. Hi, Mom! We’re doing fine! We’ve made many new friends and met many wonderful backers. Risk-taking isn’t all bad. Our friends, new and old, are helping spread the word, because they know we’ve put ourselves out there. It will be OK, trust me.
We’ve also posted some funny kid videos on our blog. I’m losing badly to my daughter in the Daddy vs. Daughter video pitch contest. If you liked our main video, you’ll probably love my Daughter’s version even better. Regardless how you vote, you can win one of two non-production sample Targimal by voting and sharing. Drawing will be held Sunday night, July 7, at midnight MST. We will ship outside the USA if you win. (Mom, you can’t enter).

We’ve also had a couple of mentions in major media outlets…
And the Examiner.com’s Parenting section: http://www.examiner.com/article/forge-of-honor-allays-nighttime-terrors
We’re made it to the ‘Popular’ section of the Art category on Kickstarter, I hope we can break through to the home page ‘Popular” section soon! We’ve actually been #1 on the Denver, CO Kickstarter page for many days now, and not a peep from the Denver media and blogs, despite contact. We’ll keep wearing them down!
As of this writing, we are at 40% of our $18,000 goal. And it seems obtainable for the first time! Thanks for your support. If your a stats nerd, you can keep up with us at Kicktraq: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/dalealantaylor/forge-of-honor-targimals-and-bordor-blades-and-shi/ We also post news stories there and Adam Clark, who runs it, is a great guy. (Mom, it only updates hourly, so don’t refresh it all the time)
Look for more updates soon, thanks again for your support and your sharing. Keep the campaign tips and hints coming to me, spreading the word is not easy and your recommendations have been invaluable!
