      Just got mine too, excellent design and workmanship, but smaller than I imagined ( in spite of numerous pictures of same ).
      My one concern is the sticky thingie - will it wear out? Can it be regenerated?
      Other than that, great idea and results, thanks for the opportunity!

      WOOT!!!! got mine today. This is far beyond what I was expecting... sure seeing it in the video's, and picture's is one thing, but the final product in my hands is another thing. Just wanted to tell you Thanks for making such a useful toy ^_-

      Hi, Guys,
      This is great news! Unfortunately there is a postal strike in Canada and it seems that US post is not shipping to Canada. I hope the strike is over soon but in the meantime you may have to hold the Canadian orders.

      @Robert - yes all cleared customs. The 4000+ get fulfilled by ShipWire so most people will get an email that they shipped today or tomorrow. ShipWire has the resources to turn these quick.

      Have all 4000+ units cleared customs? Last I read the mega kicker levels were be filled ASAP. I would be surprised if you guys went from filling 75 to 4000+ in the matter of a couple of weeks. Can we get a clarification on this? I would hate for people to all be checking their mail everyday for something that is not coming.

      I know this is probably too late, but can I change my address? I just moved and want to make sure I can get it. If I can, please let me know and I'll email you my address, or you can contact me at Thanks and I'm sorry for the late notice.

      Creator Naveen Soman on June 20, 2011

      Another question.. Is it possible to get some sort of tracking number for the international deliveries?

      Creator Mark Hennessey on June 20, 2011

      Congrats, just wondering how long you think they'll take to get to the UK?

      Creator Sameer Chougle on June 20, 2011

      Thanks so much! I've been waiting for this for so long... and finally, it's travelling to me tomorrow! Wanted to ask the same question that James has asked. - Who's the shipping partner? I hope this is not coming by USPS? This will take all time in the world to reach my country and then after that,the postal service here sucks big time! Please Jim, inform us of the courier company ASAP.

      Congratulations guys! So I have a question for those that see me using my shnazzy new padpivot and [appropriately] drool over it. :-) When will these go into full production for the non-Kickstarter person to get their hands on one? I'd like to have an answer/estimate ready. *grin*

      Creator James S Milward on June 19, 2011

      Great news guys! It's only a matter of days now before you'll have a few thousand of these gems in circulation! Just wondering what the delivery method will be; DHL, Fed-Ex, UPS, US Mail? I've had the mailman leave packages on my doorstep because they don't fit in the mailbox that were subsequently stolen right from the doorstep. So if you could provide us with name of the entity that will actually be transpiring these PadPivots to us it would be much appreciated. Thanks, and Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there.
