Hello friends,

1 year ago, we got the big news from Kickstarter "KOALSAFE HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY FUNDED!". With the help of our 443 backers, from 21 countries, we were able to complete v1 of KoalaSafe and fund our first production run. A lot has happened since then!

- We now sell on amazon.com and koalasafe.com, with customers from all over the world from the US, UK, Canada and Australia to Dubai, South Africa and Malaysia. Getting the right  balance of screen time at home is definitely a global issue!

- The press write about us pretty often - we've been in the WSJ, on Bay Area TV and lots of Mommy bloggers and tech sites have put KoalaSafe through its paces and written reviews

- We've continued to launch new features, such as advanced usage analytics and "homework mode" is now in active development due to popular demand and more is to come!

Best of all, over 10,000 devices are now managed by KoalaSafe. That's countless families who no longer fight over when to turn the internet off or worry about what's going on on their network. All this made possible by crowd-funding and our backers. So thank you all and thank you Kickstarter!

For any backers who think a friend would benefit the same way you have, tell them enter the code "KOALAFRIEND" for 10% off a KoalaSafe. Offer valid for first 100 users only. Expires 18 May 2016.

Hi All,

It is with great pleasure, much excitement and a tinge of nervous energy that I announce the remaining Kickstarter units have shipped. You will get your tracking numbers later today.

This brings the total list of backer countries to 21:

  • Australia 
  • Belgium 
  • Canada 
  • Denmark 
  • France 
  • Germany 
  • Ireland 
  • Italy 
  • Malaysia 
  • Mexico 
  • Netherlands 
  • New Zeland 
  • Norway 
  • Portugal 
  • Singapore 
  • Spain 
  • Sweden 
  • Switzerland 
  • United Arab Emirates 
  • United Kingdom 
  • United States

This is not the end of our journey together, it's just the beginning. The first units are close to being delivered in the US now (they've showed up in USPS tracking) and so will be coming online soon. We can't wait to take your feedback on discuss.koalasafe.com.

We've also taken many more orders through our website which we'll soon be dispatching. It's just the beginning for KoalaSafe; we are talking to retailers, telco's, schools and investors who all see the problem, the opportunity and the difference KoalaSafe can make in family life.

Thanks for your support so far.

Regards,

Steve and Adam

Hi Koalas,

Great news! Shipment #1 is out the door and shipment #2 isn't far behind. So, if you entered a US shipping address, you will receive an email today with your tracking number.

For the rest of the world, watch this space, you're not far behind.

This is happening!!! I'm so excited I even wrote a blog post about it.

Adam and Steve.
