      So much for white elephant present. Oh well S@!t happens.

      I agree with @PaulT. I've learned it's okay to want to get a KS in time for Christmas, you just never know which Christmas due to delays...(and have a back-up plan if you plan on a KS project to deliver for a Specific Christmas).
      .
      clearly @Katamco would have wanted these out before Christmas as it's when they could have done well on the retail market as well....this is a perfect item to come out in Nov/Dec...not Jan/Feb.... I feel bad that they missed the prime window for their creative project and hope they still manage to get sales after the Holiday season. Their next idea like this, hopefully they start sooner.. live and learn....
      .
      I'm perfectly fine given these out as late Christmas gifts once they arrive.

      Thanks PaulT! We appreciate your understanding that there are unforeseeable delays. We definitely didn’t want to disappoint anybody. But with this type of undertaking, a little bit of that is inevitable.

    4. PaulT 2 days ago

      Asking for a refund, because of the delays is i.m.h.o. a bit silly.
      Almost EVERY project on kickstarter gets a delay after a delay after a delay.
      That is to be expected when you produce something that does not exist yet.
      Btw. it is not my intention to judge anybody...I just want to take a stand for the creators.

      I'd like to UNDO my extra order, since none of them will arrive in time for the holidays.

      Any update on a shipping date

    8. Katamco Creator on November 21

      Hi Mihail. We have messaged you directly.

    9. Mihail Nakoff on November 21

      I would like to get a refund since the newest update sounds like it could be delayed past the Holidays. The entire reason I was doing it was for gifts.

      Hi Keba! We will send surveys when we get closer to our ship date. Likely November. Our manufacturer is making good progress!

      So, I guess there was no decision made for the girl version? Add-on after at least?

      @Ashley, the project is currently already funded. But in Kickstarter, if a project is not funding at the end, you are not charged.

      Ashley on August 5

      we think this product is amazing and all our friends and family will back this project, i would just like to know what happens if the campaign is not funded will we still be charged ? Thank you

    26. Katamco Creator on July 25

      Thanks Kevin! Backers will not be charged until after the close of the campaign, Monday August 14. Still plenty of time to spread the word. Thank you!

      Rumor has it Katamco has colluded with the Russians for additional funding. This project is truly and International phenomenon. Watch out for the DOJ Katamco

      Less than $300 to reach goal...

      We need to squeeze out a few more pledges to get this past the goal!

      passing the 75% mark... go, go, go, strain.......

      Katamco,
      I wasn't suggesting multiple colors, just something a little more "earthy" than white ;-)

    35. Katamco Creator on July 20

      Hey Caleb! Thanks for posting. So unlike a traditional sand-timer that has to be flipped to reset every time it runs out, this one is just rotated. (You don't have to hold it upside down to reset.) That's Toilet Timer magic! Just rotate 360 degrees to reset. Thanks for the question!

      Caleb Vochaska on July 20

      Fantastic! Definitely going in my Dad's stocking this year! I see that the top is rounded, does this mean that you have to hold it to entire time to reset the sand?

      I thought of another person that needs this... bumping up my pledge to a #2

    39. Katamco Creator on July 19

      Hey Prozach, Russonc,

      Thanks for the great suggestion!

      With our goal of $20,000, multiple colors of sand would add complexity and cost that we didn't factor into our goal.

      However... we think that different colors are a fantastic idea, so if the campaign blows by our goal we'll definitely consider adding some options!

      Maybe a SG ... ;}

    41. Russonc

      I agree on the sand color..options for different folks... make everyone feel at home...

    42. prozach on July 19

      The sand needs to be a different color. I'll let you guys decide what color that should be *wink*

      That said, I am in for (number)2

      1/2 way there!!

      Kaitlyn! Thanks for commenting. Whereas some people are in the bathroom too long, some aren't in it long enough. A friend of mine with a child with autism has expressed the same sentiment.

    45. Kaitlyn jordan on July 19

      this is actually perfect for my child who has ADHD and a GI issue and doesn't spend enough time in the bathroom, because he is inpatient, so this is perfect! thank you

    46. Katamco Creator on July 16

      Hey Russonc! Thanks for getting in touch. The final injection-molded product will be clear all the way around, with the image on the front. (Also added to FAQs)
