Hello everyone! 

It has been an absolute whirlwind here for us! We are thrilled beyond belief that we doubled our Kickstarter goal! We have each and every one of you to thank for your support! So again, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts! 

A special thanks to those of you who chose to support us with no reward in return- we think that is just so incredibly thoughtful and kind of you! Thank you for your generosity- whether big or small it just means so much to us! 

A special Shout Out to our international Backers- some of you are in Brazil, Germany, Italy and Australia... (23+ countries!) we’ve reached makers all over the world and we couldn’t be happier knowing that you (both here in the US and abroad) will be Making, Hacking and Building Kinetic Creatures of your very own! 

We look forward to continuing our busy schedule this summer- getting all of the Kinetic Creatures out to each and every one of you! Some of the many things we have been working on are our package design, instructional layout and video instructions. We have also been working closely with all the local companies getting our materials and production plans in order- exciting stuff! 

In our small windows of down time we’ve been dreaming up the exciting next steps of our project- we’ll keep you all in the loop! 

In addition to keeping you updated with our continuing journey- soon you will receive a survey email from us that asks your shipping address and other important things! So keep an eye out for that! 

And lastly, here is a recent pic from the ADX Portland event where we showcased the animals- two wonderfully enthusiastic makers playing with Geno and Rory! Yay! 

Thank you for supporting our Kinetic Creatures project! Once again, sending out the love wide and far! 

Happy Making! Alyssa & Lucas

      I am so glad to see you're off to a great start. Kinetic Creatures will be a fun project for both kids and adults. They might just be the spark for the next greatest future engineer. I can easily see these creatures being sold at natural history and science museums. Congratulations!
