Have a question?
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.
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.
Hey Josh, Thanks for getting in touch. we've messaged you!
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
Hi Mihail. We have messaged you directly.
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.
Just want to say thank you for keeping us updated! And the whole process is pretty interesting! Best wishes for perfecting your product :)
Hi Kevin! We messaged you directly. Jo, we messaged you too. Thanks!
Hey guys is there any chance I️ can cancel my order and get a refund?
When should these be shipped by? Im hoping soon cannot wait to give my boss his.
Hi Dawn. I have e-mailed you. Thanks!
Im having trouble with the backer survey and I have no way of contacting anyone about it.
I’m having trouble responding to an email that was sent to me. Can some one help me? firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Keba! We will send surveys when we get closer to our ship date. Likely November. Our manufacturer is making good progress!
Do you have any idea when surveys will be sent out?? Thanks
@Craig We won't be offering the girl version right now, but if and when we do, we will update you. Thank you again!
Congratulations on funding!
Just in time :)
So, I guess there was no decision made for the girl version? Add-on after at least?
down to the hours count down!
@Ashley, the project is currently already funded. But in Kickstarter, if a project is not funding at the end, you are not charged.
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
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!
You got the funding! When should i be getting charged?
Thanks uncle Paul. We can always rely on you for fake news. Thank you for taking us over the successful funding line!! Uncle Paul, everybody.
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.......
I wasn't suggesting multiple colors, just something a little more "earthy" than white ;-)
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!
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?
(Gotta love potty humor...)
I thought of another person that needs this... bumping up my pledge to a #2
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 ... ;}
I agree on the sand color..options for different folks... make everyone feel at home...
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
We need some Ex-lax to get this campaign moving!!
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.
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
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)
@Katamco, I see both a white model (the molded case if you will) and a black model. Are these all Black?
too silly to pass up... I have the perfect recipient... Good Luck! (fingers crossed this make the Christmas delivery!)
We aim to ship these little guys middle to end of November. Both domestically and internationally. (Also added to FAQs)
hi! how before christmas are they estimated to arrive? nice project! good concept!!
