What is Joker Cricket?

The Joker Cricket makes the sound of a chirping cricket for you to hide in your friend's bedroom, library, TV room, office...anywhere really.  

This little guy will chirp for over 6 HOURS and with no off switch they must destroy it. Oh, and we added glitter inside 

Brought to you by the same jerks that made the Joker Greeting Card and two successfully and delivered kickstarter products. 

How to use the Joker Cricket?

1. Pull Tab   2. Peel Paper  3.Press to Start  4. Hide and Sneak Away...

Yep, in water and stuck to a plate

test, test. You can even see air bubbles coming up. Super sticky. 

 How long does it last? 

My laptop ran out of memory after 6 hours of testing...

Make it Personal.

What's the point of a prank if your victim doesn't know who did it? You can sign your Joker Cricket and really rub it in with a message to your victim. Or just leave it blank and keep it a mystery...

The Cricket is small enough for your back pocket, so you can prank anytime you're on the go!

Where oh where shall I place the cricket?

The Joker Cricket is small enough and thin enough to hide virtually anywhere. And with the added adhesive on back this really means anywhere! 

Here are some ideas. 

Somewhere in here a Joker Cricket is Chirping... But Where is It???

How long does it last?

Our tests have clocked it in at lasting 6 - 10 hours. 

What is the exact size? 

5 inches by 4 inches. 

Size Matters...

We put the cricket to test!

Wait, do I mail this to friends?

Not really. This is a more intimate gag for your friends, just pop in for a visit and drop this little guy off in a secret place before you leave. 

If you want to mail a gag to your friends just go to this link www.jokergreeting.com

Will this drive your friends CRAZY? 

Just as Edgar Allen Poe... Anyone here read THE TELL TALE HEART?

What is the money for? 

Every Joker Cricket is packed with crazy future level technology. This tech is so advanced we must meet a large minimum bulk order to get the price down to human levels. 

Stretch Goal?

It sounds super silly but if we hit $20,000 we can offer different flavors and sounds of Cricket Cards. Help us unlock the possibilities!
