Finished Shipping Minis!

Posted by Maurice Ribble (Creator)

I was a little worried about missing the end of June goal I set since I had about 10x more backers than I planned back when I launched this Kickstarter project.  However, I worked really hard to meet that June promise, and today I'm very happy to say I finished shipping them over a month early!  I want to thank all my backers for being so positive and supporting me through this campaign.  It has been a blast!

There are still a few backers that didn't fill out the survey with their shipping address.  If you are one of those feel free to contact me with this page and I can arrange shipment of your Mini.

If you have friends that want an Electric Eel Wheel Mini, or if you want another one yourself I will be selling them on my store this July (probably at the end of July).  You can submit your email address on that page and I'll notify you when they are in stock.  You can also leave a review of your Mini on that page.

One last thing I'll mention is that I'm constantly working on new spinning related products.  If you are interested in getting notified when new things come up subscribe to my newsletter at the bottom of this page.  I generally only send out a few emails each year and I will never share your email address with others so don't worry about getting too much email.

      So very, very happy to have been given the opportunity to support you, and this project. I love my little mini spinner. It is so much fun, and much more than a toy! I have gotten a some real spinning done on this baby and plan to use it a lot! Thank you so much for all your hard work and creativity!!!!

      Tamara, you should have gotten a tracking number emailed to you. If you didn't and want one contact me ( Tracking says it should get there in the next few days.

      Thanks for your hard work! I may have been the very last backer, since I learned of your project on the final day. :D. I’m curious whether you will be sending tracking information? I haven’t seen a specific shipping notification yet. I did fill out the survey, and got the confirmation back from Kickstarter, so i know you have the correct address. ;D. So excited!

      I literally squealed when I saw the box. I haven't played with it (end of school year busy). This summer, though!
