President Trump is officially a Russian Doll - I'm sure he'd love it!
Presidental nesting dolls have been around for a while now but traditionally each level reveals the President that preceded them, Obama to Bush to Clinton to Bush Sr. and so on...
Nothing about the last year has been very Presidential so I've created a nesting doll that quite literally encapsulates the people Trump loves the most. Backing this project you'll get a Kickstarter exclusive price, once the project is complete these bad boys will be on Amazon for $30 a set.
Will you be surprised who we PUT IN the center? Pun intended...
The reception of these dolls so far has been overwhelmingly from both sides of the political spectrum. I can ensure you I have nothing but the best intentions and I'm having a great time making this project happen. When times get tough having a laugh can be the best remedy.
Each doll set will come in its own individual box that has been custom designed to bring out the best of the President and his little family of confidants. The box has been created so your friends and family won't know about Putin being in the center if you do decide to give this little guy away as a gift.
We also have a Facebook Messenger code on the box itself which will lead to a secret Trump choose your own adventure game! In the game you will play as the President, trying to stay in the White House for as long as possible! Whoever can stay President for the longest amount of time wins!
I searched high and low for the best manufacturer to faithfully represent the designs and I'm more than happy to say I found a great team to work with. I even visited them myself!
The manufacturing team has generously agreed to work with me on this project even though the order size is below their usual minimum order quantity. For other projects, they are doing as many as 50,000 dolls per order!
The printing process for each doll is down to a science that eliminates almost all variations and issues. Needless to say, I'll still be quality checking every doll!
After manufacturing is complete shipping will take about three weeks to Los Angeles. From there sorting everyone's individual orders will take a few more days more, so fingers crossed February will be our completion date!
I've been working on this project for almost a year now, here's a rough idea of the timeline currently.
Thank you for your support and I hope we can make this project happen!
Risks and challenges
The Minimum Order Quantity required by the manufacturing friends is several hundred, so I hope we can meet the goal to make this project happen.
If demand outstretches our wildest expectations then it will take longer to fulfill orders leading into January.
- If we experience this high demand we will dispatch the dolls in batches as soon as they are finished. Rather than sending them out all at once.
People have already accused me of working with the Russians in an elaborate Bugs Bunnyesque scheme to draw attention away from Trump's collaboration.
- If this continues I will begin to distribute tin foil hats with each order.
