Last Chance to Pay Your International Shipping -- Important, 2 weeks left.
Last Chance to Fill Out Your Survey -- Important, 1 week left.
We are bursting with excitement to tell you that we are starting to send out MaKey MaKeys. Right on schedule! Estimated ship date was August. We are so so so sO so sO so sO so so so happy that most of you will have kits in your hands this month (if you filled out your survey and paid your international shipping)
Here is the manufacturing update provided by Jim Lindblom at SparkFun:
- Most of the MaKey MaKeys are assembled, programmed, and tested
- Most of the 13,000 kits are scheduled to ship in August (2,000 to 3,000 per week)
- The remaining kits are scheduled to ship in the first half of September
Please remember that we are providing you with the behind the scenes plans and current facts. So if something changes, we'll let you know. But our plans are not guarantees.
Last Chance to Pay International Shipping
If you forgot to pay international shipping when placing your order, and also weren't able to update your order with shipping payment before the end of the KickStarter, here's what you need to do.
Go to this link:
And use your credit card or PayPal to make an appropriate payment using the same name you used on KickStarter. Please do this as soon as possible, but at the latest do it in the next 2 weeks, by August 17th. If you do not pay for shipping we cannot send you a MaKey MaKey, and this makes us very sad.
Most of you already paid, so you don't need to worry. Only if you didn't pay the extra international shipping fee with your original pledge. For example, if you pledged at the FULL KIT level, and you live outside the USA then you needed to pledge $35 (for the kit) + $10 (for int'l shipping) = $45. Check your pledge. Did you pledge the extra? If so, do nothing. If not, you have 2 weeks to pay the extra shipping. If you live in the USA, then shipping is included, no extra payment.
Last Chance to Fill Out Your Survey
All surveys were sent out by July 12th. If you think you might have missed the survey email, please log in to your Kickstarter account to check — you’ll see a notification at the top of the site for any missed surveys.
Please fill out your survey as soon as possible, but at the latest, please fill out your survey by August 12th (1 month from original survey date). That's only about 1 week away! If you don't fill out your survey (which has your shipping address) we cannot send you a MaKey MaKey, and this makes us very sad.
